FNC Ent. confirms N.Flying's Kwangjin has decided to leave the band voluntarily following controversies

On December 19, FNC Entertainment released an official statement regarding N.Flying bassist Kwangjin's departure from the band. 

Previously, various rumors of Kwangjin spread online via fan communities with content claiming that the idol was dating a fansite homemaster, verbally harassed fans in the past, and more. According to these online rumors, Kwangjin has been picking up fans and dating them since debut, in addition to badmouthing his fellow members, etc. Various netizens stepped forward to claim that they've witnessed such events occur, or were victim to events in the past. 

In response to the controversies, FNC Entertainment released the following statement below:

"Hello, this is FNC Entertainment. We would like to release the company's official statement regarding N.Flying member Kwangjin.
Up until now, N.Flying has worked hard in order to bring fans joy through healthy and lively music. After meeting face to face with the individuals who were involved in the currently spreading online rumors related to Kwangjin, we've confirmed that elements of the rumors including Kwangjin's dating scandal with fans, sexual harassment claims, and more are not true. 
However, it has been confirmed that the member did hold personal meetings with fans outside of official promotional activities, and regardless of the fact that the meetings were meant to express thanks toward fans, seeking personal relationships with fans no matter what the reason is, is improper behavior for a member of a band; as a result, after a deep discussion, Kwangjin has decided to voluntarily leave N.Flying. Until we are able to discover the the full truth regarding the ongoing rumors, Kwangjin will halt all broadcast and promotional activities and partake in a time of reflection.
After confirming all facts behind the spreading of online rumors through face to face encounters with the involved individuals, we plan on taking strict legal action should some online posts prove to be false and of malicious nature.
There will be no changes to the remaining N.Flying members' schedules, and we promise that the band will deliver more mature, well-made music from here on out."

N.Flying will now continue promoting as a 4-member band with Seunghyub, Jaehyun, Cha Hun, and Yoo Hwe Seung

"He told me that I'd be beautiful if I lived in another country", "A fan confessed to feeling depressed after becoming a victim of dating violence and he asked her until when she was going to be like that", "At his fan signing, he put me on his lap and blocked me from getting up and asked me to date him", "He said some b*tches were just meant to wh*re themselves out"

I don't know if the rumors are true or false, but I will say that it took him so long to get to this point that I am sad if he permanently leaves the band due to just rumors.

People always assume that the bad stuff isn't true because they can't imagine that their idols might be assholes. But we already had more than one example of someone who is, indeed, a complete asshole. They are people, somewhat famous people, and thinking that they are all kind and nice is silly.

its sad to see groups, (who trained years and years to debut and endured countless hardships) breaking up cause of false rumors by "fans" or their pettiness. these people should not even be called "fans," seems like to me that they dont want their faves to be well or happy and are stuck in their delusional fantasies of being some idol's bf/gf. if the idol does not act the way they want, they will just spread false rumors. the "fans" have so much influence over the industry that these stupid accusations are taken srsly to the point of members leaving. the idols' dreams and careers they worked hard for are just gone like that. poof....what kind of "fans" are these people even?

Hopefully, this is not permanent. From what I’ve read, this does seem to be mainly rumors. Maybe they should have said that he’s just gonna stop promoting for now till the truth is clear (this is what they seem to mean) instead of using the word “leave”.

I am not a big fan of N.Flying but hell, I need to write this down as I am just sick of all the crap I am reading online when there is no sustainable proof or anything confirmed yet. The way I see it and how it will probably prove to be:

- OK so he interacted with fans outside the organized events: So fucking what? It is not like he killed someone. But wait, the industry and society is in such a way that you cannot do anything at your good willing. I will never understand obsessed people fantasying over some idols and overreacting on the things only they think are not appropriate.

- "A fan confessed to feeling depressed after becoming a victim of dating violence and he asked her until when she was going to be like that." YES GIRL, my question as well: Until are you going to be like that? Of course he asked that! Obviously he wanted you to be strong enough and stop that sick relationship. Why would you accept a violent relationship in the first place?

- "At his fan signing, he put me on his lap and blocked me from getting up and asked me to date him" - well in what dimension? I would really like to do that, too. SERIOUSLY? :)) You wished that happened, girl! But it did not and you got mad about it. From what I know, fan sign events are organized, with hundred of people taking pictures and videos. So, I would like to see an event where you get to have more than a high-five + a picture with an idol. Let's cut the crap, OK?

- FNC has made a statement they are investigating and removed him from the band: YES this is what they do before checking facts just to not temper the band's image. Total bullshit from my point of view. Innocent until it is proved otherwise.

My conclusion: Industry higher-ups did not like it that FNC started to be successful in the last years. N.Flying has started to rise beautifully and being popular since HweSeung's joining the band so why not messing their image a little bit?

Fans are being mad about the whole situation and posting bad comments about him. OK - those are not fans but so called "keyboard warriors" hired to spread bad rumors and false accusations online. We knew about this practice in South Korea, right? If you did not, inform yourself a little bit. I would also include here obsessed so called fans fantasying about being idols bf/gf. Therefore, until we see real proof or it is proved otherwise and not only some bad comments, this person is nothing but innocent. Period.

it reminds me of JYP's DAY6 is it, also had one member who was rumored to be dating his fan, and end up, either got kicked out or left the group.

Junhyeok (as much as I love him) DID indeed date a fan though and left on his own free will. These are two different stories. One the ex exposed their relationship cause she was stupid (Junhyeok) and the other is being accused of multiple false information due to sasaeng and jealous crazy people (Kwangjin).

Junhyeok did date a fan though. He's even personally admitted that. The biggest issue with his 'scandal' was because his girlfriend ended up with information on their schedules that she then leaked online to other people which put Day6 in danger. People shouldn't believe ever rumor they see but they also shouldn't dismiss it. Once a credible rumor is out there they need to wait for confirmation.

I guess Seunghyub is talented enough to take the bass role too (since he pretty much know how to do everything).

Hmm so did he leave or is he on suspension?

(FNC must have a rule on not having relationships with fans, honestly he houldnt have met them privately, atleast have someone else with you)

I feel so bad for him. I hope it's a voluntarily leave as in a hiatus or time off till things get settled. This is so fucking sad. Anyone who started these rumors or believed them deserves their heads blown off by a firing squad.

i dk him and i dk if the rumors are true or false, but if its not true and that he had to leave then this is really unfair, he should not leave just because of rumors sue them and prove you are innocent they can get sued for deflamation of character,yeah his reputation is damaged but its not like it will stay like that forever esp if he is proved innocent, but if its true then its totaly different

his behavior must be straight up ridiculous

i guess he thought because he was a nugu he wouldn't have problems

leo from vixx can't even accept a cake from a fansite without drama so what was he thinking?

some people aren't fit to be idols because they can't understand the situation they're in
