Takuya announces his departure from Cross Gene + remaining members dedicate a letter to fans

Takuya has officially left Cross Gene

On December 10, Cross Gene officially announced Takuya's departure on their official website. The Japanese member's contract with the agency has ended, and he has left the group. Cross Gene will promote as a group of 4 from now on with ShinSeyoungSangmin, and Yongseok. The remaining members dedicated a letter to fans following the news. 


Their letter reads as follows:


"We sincerely appreciate the fans who have always cheered us on. We are so apologetic to be delivering such unfortunate news suddenly. 


To be honest, we have worked hard up til now with a fear of uncertainty in our future. However, we are where we are now thanks to your warm support. Therefore, we do not want to end Cross Gene as long as we have our supporting fans. 


It's unfortunate that Takuya, who has been with us for the past 7 years as a member of Cross Gene, will walk a different path from now on but we want to cheer on Takuya and his decision. 


Cross Gene will continue promoting as a group of 4 from now on. We will work harder and create a new future together. 


In 2019, we will try our best to create an opportunity for us to see you guys soon. We will appreciate if you can wait a little longer. And please, continue to watch out for Cross Gene."

It's a shame, he's my favorite in the group, and really the only one I've ever followed. I often wondered how he felt about the direction of Cross Gene and his career in that sense, considering we really don't hear enough from the group, as well as the fact that he volunteered to step down from his Leader position to just be a regular member of the group. I'll still follow his career and wish him well, I hope he can be picked up and continue in acting- that always seemed like something he was more into. I'm not saying he didn't enjoy music, but more that acting was where he would like to be. We'll just have to wait and see what he does next.
