Hunus Entertainment, formerly known as only Stardom Entertainment before a merger, released a statement:
"Since the merge of Stardom Entertainment and Hunus Entertainment this summer, our team has been working hard on improving the organization in order to gain new possibilities for our artists. Our hope is that fans will be able to see the progress, already starting with the current comeback promotions and activities.
"However, prior to that, we have to deliver some sad news to the fans of Topp Dogg. The members Kidoh and Gohn have now decided to go their own separate way, and will no longer be a part of ToppDogg, and in order to respect their wishes our company has canceled their future activities with the group.
"Although it's very sad for us who have seen Kidoh and Gohn grow and develop as artists, through good and tough times over the past few years, we believe that they should follow their own hearts and minds, and we look forward to see where their musical abilities will take them in the future.
"Gohn has discussed with our agency that he currently wishes to stop the music activities in order to enlist and fulfill the obligatory military service. Due to the process of enlisting he could not participate in the making of this album.
"After finishing his service, if the situation allows, he aims to peruse his own musical career and is hoping to show fans good music on stage again. Although not being a part of ToppDogg's activities, he will keep cheering on the ToppDogg until they reach their goals to become a top idol group.
"Kidoh will not be involved in the activities, but has participated as a producer on Topp Dogg's new album. Recent work has also created opportunities for him to travel abroad. The recent discussions have mainly revolved around his own musical preferences, and that he personally wishes to go in a new direction.
"The Topp Dogg members,as well as staff, sincerely respect the choice of the Kidoh and Gohn, and will cheer them on as good friends, wishing them a bright future as they move on forward in their lives and careers.
"We would like to take this opportunity to say thank you to all the fans at home and abroad,for all the generous support for Topp Dogg. Although a slightly belated notice, due to long discussions and sincere contemplation of how to deliver the sad news in the best possible way, we want to say thank you for waiting - and again apologize for the delay.The ToppDogg member shave passionately been preparing for the comeback now for quite some time and are very excited to show fans the new music and performances. Please give Topp Dogg's new album a lot of love and support."
