Kyungha decided to leave Top Secret (TST).
On June 11, JSL Company officially announced Kyungha's departure from Top Secret via the group's official fan cafe.
The announcement stated,
"Hello, this is JSL Company.
First of all, we sincerely appreciate the fans who give support and love to Top Secret. Today we are here to provide an update on Top Secret.
Currently, Top Secret members are mentally exhausted from the halt in promotions and having a hard time.
Therefore, Top Secret member Kyungha personally expressed the wish to leave the group as he does not want to give any more harm to the members.
JSL Company and the members had a thorough conversation with Kyungha. We respect his decision to focus on revealing the truth which is different from what's revealed to the world at the moment. Kyungha's departure was decided after a long and careful thought.
We sincerely apologize for causing concerns to the fans with the issue. We will try our best to provide updates as soon as the case processes.
We will work our best to repay the fans who always give love and support with better music and promotions.
We also promise to work our best so Top Secret can be with the fans. We ask for unchanging love and support for Top Secret.
Prior to this, Top Secret's Kyungha was found guilty of sexual harassment and sentenced to probation. JSL Company filed an appeal to the court and continued to claim Kyungha's innocence.
