B1A4 to promote as three members



B1A4 will be promoting as a three-member group for the time being, WM Entertainment has confirmed in a statement released on November 16.




The agency revealed that they met with members Jinyoung and Baro, who joined other agencies earlier this year, to discuss the group's future course of action, and it was decided that it would be difficult for B1A4 to promote as five right now. However, they are not ruling out the possibility of the group promoting as five members again in the future.



Meanwhile, Jinyoung and Baro will remain signed to LINK8 Entertainment and HODU&U Entertainment, respectively.


[ Editor's Note: This is a revision from a previous article that stated Jinyoung and Baro had left the group.]

I like the fact that the agency kept an open mind about having the two of them still be part of B1A4. Not all companies will do that. The big question that isn't answered here at least for me was if the reason they are not promoting with B1A4 is their own personal choice or did their new companies want them to promote solo more first to get established with their company. It's not unreasonable if they did but it's just one of those things I'm curious about since members that leave their companies but stay with their groups are kind of rare. I'm always wanting to know how they work the logistics of it all out.

Their leader was kinda mean... their company promoted him well and now he's popular he leaves his group.

I wasn't their fan but a casual fan is sad their songs are good.

to be honest i always though that b1a4 and block b and b.a.p have similar problem , these group have a soled fanbase and they have similar popularity and the 3 leaders of theses group are the most popular member and they are who always write the group song so i wasn't surprise when i heard the 3 leader left their group, its kind of mean but yah

[SPOILER][/SPOILER]I’m not sure about blockb and B1A4 leaders but Yongguk from bap was promoted just as much as other members he did not outshine his group he worked hard and together as a group they sacrificed a lot it wasn’t mean of him to leave. His contract had finally expired and with the encouragement of fans he left. The group are actively promoting while still interacting with there leader on social media. Sorry if this came across rude but I just wanted to let you know B.A.Ps leader is not mean there are multiple valid reasons for his departure as well as B1A4s as well. You can’t really expect members to stay if as an artist they are not being recognised for their music if it’s time to move on then it’s time to move on.

It's cool of the agency wants them all to be together. This'll be interesting; kinda like a subunit.

I expected this to happen but I just simply chose to ignore it. *sigh* I'll still support each member's decision though.
