Hyung Eun of BULLDOK is confirmed to have withdrawn from the girl group.

It looks like the rumors of Hyung Eun leaving BULLDOK following the controversy surrounding her statements about BTS' V were true as the group's agency KCONIC Entertainment has confirmed her leave. The agency posted to Instagram on May 18 that Hyung Eun had actually left the group this past April 20 due to health issues, and she had stopped promoting with BULLDOK in late March.

KCONIC posted, "Hyung Eun's health is the most important, and though we expected her health to improve, her diagnosis said her recovery would take an extended period of time. After a long discussion with Hyung Eun, we accepted her request to withdraw." The agency also confirmed BULLDOK would continue as a 4-member group, and Hyung Eun planned to take her own career path after her health improves.

The label further apologized for Hyung Eun's comments about BTS member V and the surrounding controversy, stating, "After Hyung Eun's withdrawal was confirmed this past April, an issue the agency was not aware of arose. Though it occurred after her withdrawal, we sincerely apologize to the BTS fans and other associated people who were hurt by our previous labelmate Hyung Eun's careless words."

As previously reported, Hyung Eun has been under fire for her rudely talking about the group BTS without using honorifics and suggesting V had athlete's foot.

    hair flip!!..... this should be a big lesson (and a slap on the face) for some people here on AKP who were blaming Armies for her departure from the group..... truth speaks for itself.

    People think K-army got her kicked out of the group but probably don't even know the group. First, she was already taking leave due to her health and second not using honorifics is basically like cursing at your boss

    I remember when got7 guest on weekly idol and they did quote quizzes for non-korean members, theres one question that asked "up & down" which the answer is "water". Jinyoung then explained the meaning which he said "in korea, theres up and down even when drinking plain water". I mean yes, that is just how significant honorifics is in their culture

    If a rookie idol forgot honorifics when mentioning any senior idol, the fans would demand an apology regardless of who it is or what the situation is.

    They are considered as seniors to the rookies. Rookie idols not respecting those who have been in the industry longer than them is considered to be incredibly disrespectful in Korean culture. Just stating facts.

    Here's the thing the K-ARMYS were mad about the honorifics thing. Honorifics is a huge thing in Korea and even if they weren't idols, the fact that you don't use honorifics would still be shunned in the lives of ordinary people. Let's say that if it was an even larger group than BTS things would have gotten more complicated than they already are. As for the athlete's foot, regardless of whether it was her or her friend or someone behind the scenes that said it, it pissed off international fans or any fans because you can't go around assuming the reason he wore them was to hide fungus. That's like assuming a person has lice because he constantly wears hats. Regardless, it's not right to say something like that in general about people. Hyung-eun was already planning on withdrawing even before the incident even the company said so, but this incident had to come into light which makes things even more complicated. She's not leaving because people are demanding for an apology. Several fans have demanded other idols for apologies before, so this isn't new and she's not leaving because they're demanding one and netizens are criticizing her for lack of honorifics. And the thing is any word or words can be your downfall. Even if you don't say it but someone who's associated with you says it (unintentionally), it still comes back to bite you.
