Kang Sung Hoon leaves Sechskies and YG Entertainment

On January 1, 1st-generation idol Kang Sung Hoon released an official statement via his official fan cafe, Hoony World

In the statement, Kang Sung Hoon's side revealed, "Due to Kang Sung Hoon's unstable mental state, we cannot foretell his return to public activities and pushing back Sechskies's group activities due to his current state is a great burden to the team." 

The statement continued, "After a lengthy debate, we have come to an agreement with YG Entertainment to terminate Kang Sung Hoon's contract as of December 31, 2018. As a result, Kang Sung Hoon also plans to let go of all activities related to Sechskies."

Finally, Kang Sung Hoon added, "I apologize to fans for failing to meet your expectations despite your long patience, waiting for me and greeting me warmly. I sincerely apologize to the team Sechskies for the damages suffered due to my personal issues." 

Previously, Kang Sung Hoon made headlines for controversies including allegations of dating a fan, committing fraud against fans through personal events, and more. Kang Sung Hoon's side is still currently involved in legal proceedings related to the above allegations. 

It seems that as of January 1, 2019, Sechskies will continue as a 4-member group with Eun Ji Won, Lee Jae Jin, Kim Jae Duk, and Jang Su Won.

Wow! I can't say I wasn't expecting this at all, but it still hurts to see a 1st gen group lose a member

With news of Jennie’s dating, 1st generation member leaving, and stocks plummeting, I’ve never felt so bad for YG

The situations he's involved in must be in pretty bad shape. That's very sad. He had so much going for him with the revival of Sechskies. Good luck to him. I also hope he learns about protecting himself in the future if he's ever able to make a comeback again.

Due to Kang Sung Hoon's unstable mental state,

And there you have the worst part of it (from the Korean point of view).
Whether or not he actually did all the things he's been accused of, being 'mentally unstable' is probably the worst thing for him and his image as a performer.
I really don't see how else this could've ended for him - and it is really sad for a 1st gen K-pop member to go down in flames this way.
;__;

well i dun think YG will renew the contract with Sech Kies when it expires again, it seems all the hype about the 1st gen groups comeback is slowly reducing now with Infinity Challenge ended and the whole "To To Ga" thingy over.

even groups like Shinhwa, god, Turbo, who are still "active" also see less sales and comeback.

He brakes easily, I only hope that during his circumstances now there will be someone next to him and help him get through this difficult time. He is not business man, all of his life is being train to be idols and that what he did. Some people just come to take something form someone all the time. I can only wish that he will survive and become stronger after this issue.

Ah this is really too bad. Sechskies will not be the same without KSH. But I understand why this difficult decision must be made.

Can you imagine making a comeback as a group that's been buried for a decade, only to get kicked out of it now :D
