On October 15, FNC Entertainment notified fans via AOA's official fan cafe that the contract between the label and the band's drummer Youkyung has come to an end.

FNC's statement reads as follows: 


"Hello, this is FNC Entertainment. 

We're here to inform you fans of some unfortunate news. 

We would like to announce the fact that our contract with AOA's drummer Youkyung has come to an end. 

We were able to arrive on this conclusion after a long and thorough discussion, and we ultimately decided to respect Youkyung's wishes. 

Despite the fact that Youkyung's contract has ended with our label, she plans to join AOA for the group's band projects as an honorary member by fulfilling her role as the drummer. 

We'd like to thank all you fans who've encouraged Youkyung, and we ask that you give your love and support to Youkyung, who will be setting off on a new start ahead as well as to the members of AOA. 

Thank you."


It sounds like we'll still be able to see Youkyung on the drums in the band version of AOA! Best of luck, girl!

    Guys, IMO i actually think FNC & her have a good relationship. AOA wasnt all that famous during their band years. When they decided to be more of a regular idol group, they didnt force youkyung to join it/to leave, they let her be. She was always a drummer in their band performances, even at their last concert. If they both werent on good terms, i doubt she'd be coming back for band performances when she no longer has a contract

    it's interesting that she always said no to joining AOA as long as it wasnt in a band project. I think she'll never join them again coz by now they will never do the band thing again

    It was only a matter of time... AOA from quite a unique project was turned into a typical girl group and from that time YouKyung hasnt got anything from the company. I hope to see her talent in some lit rock band soon.

    She should have BEEN GONE. FNC wasn't doing anything for her and she wasn't doing anything for herself.

    Start working at home with Google! It's by-far the best job I've had. Last Wednesday I got a brand new BMW since getting a check for $6474 this - 4 weeks past. I began this 8-months ago and immediately was bringing home at least $77 per hour. I work through this link, go to tech tab for work detail........===========    W­­W­­W.f­a­c­t­o­r­y­o­f­i­n­c­o­m­e.C­­O­­M

    FNC didn't cared about her or the band concept after AOA became popular for basically doing the same stuff other girgroups do. Alas, the girl band concept was thoroughly refreshing in the KPop scene, while it lasted.
