14U Disbandment News

According to SOOMPI, in May 2019, the Agency where 14U belongs confirmed about their disbandment.

In response to the previous reports, the group’s agency released the following statement:

“Hello. This is BGent. First of all, we sincerely thank the fans who have cherished and loved 14U until now.

After a long discussion between the agency and the 14U members, it was decided that the group will disband and go their separate ways.

Although they cannot continue with the name 14U, the members have a close relationship with each other and the agency, but the mutual agreement was made to respect each member’s dream and future.

We express our gratitude to the 14U members who have worked hard together in unity towards their dreams. We will support and cheer on the paths that the members want to go down, and we will do our best to help them.

Along with our apologetic feelings towards the many fans who have given unchanging love and support, we ask for warm interest and support for the members who are awaiting new beginnings. Thank you.”

On May 13, Xportsnews reported that the group actually disbanded because of sexual relations between one of the members, who is in his early 20s, and a female staff member, who is in her late 30s. According to the reports, the other members and staff members found out, and the parents of the members requested for the agency to terminate their contracts.

The head of BGent, however, denied these reports, commenting, “The rumors have been exaggerated, but that did not happen. Their disbandment was decided by mutual agreement with the members and their parents because they have differing dreams.”

According to the reports, the members who have terminated their contracts have left the dorms and will be going their separate ways. A source stated, “The members who have left are said to be feeling apologetic to fans for the hurt this will cause, so they have not been able to speak up about it. Instead, they seem to be sharing updates on social media that they’re on vacation.”

Latest News About 14U Members

In November 2019, one of the former members of 14U wrote something that made fans worried. Hyunwoong took to his personal Instagram account to post a message that read, “I want to die.” Following the message, he deleted all of the posts on his account except for that message, leaving fans worried for his well-being as they left words of encouragement for him. But then, Hyunwoong posted a new message to fans after deleting the initial post. His new statement reads as follows:

“I’m so sorry for worrying you.

To be honest, there’s an emptiness in my heart that is so large every night, and I think it’s grown and gotten much worse than I realized.

Reading each of your comments has been a great source of strength for me, and it made me realize that I really shouldn’t have thoughts like this.

I won’t worry you again. I’ll show you a free and smiling Kim Hyun Woong. I’m so, so sorry for worrying you, and I’m so sorry to my family, friends, fellow members, and fans.

I promise something like this won’t happen again. I’m really sorry.”

That was all about 14U and the member’s profiles and facts. We hope that these guys can do better in the future and make their own way to success even they are not known as 14U again. Keep supporting them. Keep respect to each other and we will see you in the next article.
