TS Entertainment made an official announcement explaining that B.A.P member Zelo will no longer be a part of the group as he had decided not to renew his exclusive contract with the agency.
After 7 years together, Zelo has decided to move on to a different path. TS emphasized that although Zelo will no longer be a part of the group and the agency, they will continually cheer for his future.
Zelo is the second member to leave the group since Bang Yongguk left back during this past August. They did not explain what the future holds for the remaining four members: Himchan, Daehyun, Youngjae and Jongup.
This is TS Entertainment.
We would like to make an official statement regarding B.A.P Zelo’s exclusive contract. We’re announcing that TS Entertainment and B.A.P’s exclusive contract has ended.
Our agency held many discussions with B.A.P’s Zelo regarding the expiration of his contract that he signed with us back in December 2, 2011. As a result, it’s been decided that he will not renew his contract that ended on December 2, 2018 and depart from B.A.P.
We’d like to say thank you to Zelo, who had worked his hardest until the very end. We promise to continue cheering for Zelo’s upcoming future endeavors.
Once again, thank you to everyone who has loved Zelo and B.A.P.
