WIDMAY stated on July 26, "Hello. This is Snuper's label WIDMAY. We are letting you know our official statement on our contract with Kim Ye Hyun. Disappointingly, we could not be together with Kim Ye Hyun because of various reasons such as his education. We will provide Kim Ye Hyun with support if he needs us in the future. Thank you."
Kim Ye Hyun finished 'Produce 101' season 2 at rank #32 on 'Produce 101', and afterward was considered as a candidate to join Snuper. However, he ultimately did not join the group, deciding to leave the label as well.
