We know they are all leaving TS but I agree! I hope so too! I really do :'( They'd be more free too since it's their own company too.

It's a shame that B.A.P has slowly been going out like this. I remember when they debuted back in 2012 and were considered rivals of EXO as EXO had disappointed with "Mama" and B.A.P had about 4 singles that year. Lol. They were also seen as a forebear to BTS in that they were a rap-heavy group with powerful dances.

LOL Before BTS even come.. It was always BAP vs EXO.. everyone like BAP back then but due to TS being crap. they could not promote BAP well..while EXO are being on poster/adwall every damn site that SM paid.

Guys all of them are leaving but naturally one by one, they all have different contracts so when their contracts come to an end they'll be leaving ^_^. Though I hope they make a new group together tbh :cc.

Both Yongguk and Zelo stayed longer than their contract lasted, so they could spend more time with BAP and with Babyz Why arent the media outlets running those stories?


From a fellow baby .



This is only the beginning for B.A.P and Babyz ! We babyz knows that B.A.P is leaving one by one when their contracts ends and i can`t wait when they all leave the corrupted company and greet us with a new name :) It`s only 2 months more before the rest of the B.A.P members leaves TS Entertaiment .




what does it mean being a true Baby?


Being a fan doesn't mean you were there from beginning, it means you are willing to until the end. " If you are willing to be their until the end , you are the true babyz.

We already know all of them are going to leave. I was wondering when T$ is going to announce his departure, since everyone knew after the European tour.

Go Zelo, go Zelo ;) Can't wait for the new group, BAP. P.A.B. Or whatever it will be called.

Zelo already told us babyz in the concert in Dusseldorf . Although Zelo’s contract with TS Entertainment expired on December 2, the idol chose to remain with B.A.P past that date in order to complete the group’s “Forever with BABYz” tour of Europe earlier this month.


I really can't stop crying. He was just part of a whole tour just to see us baby and say goodbye to us babyz we don't deserve Zelo , Bang Yongguk and the rest of the B.A.P members . Nobody does. I am really glad that he finally left that snake company . Now is our amazing leader Bang Yongguk and our genius maknae Zelo is free from that corrupted company . Now we just have to wait for our amazing 4 other boys Himchan , Daehyun , Youngjae and Jongup to be free too.


Thank you for sharing your youth with us, thank you for loving us this much because all the things you've done made me realized how much we mean to you and how much you care about us. Forever and always with you, our little sunshine ❤️❤️ ❤️❤️

Zelo was still performing after that. He chose to stay the extra few weeks because TS was shitty and planned the concert after his contract ending date. He didn't want to disappoint the fans so he still performed. Now that the concerts are done for the year he's done with TS.

Unfortunately, they mostly ALL will get DIFFERENT AGENCIES in the future. Which makes any 'reunion' to be VERY difficult. DOUBT either that TS Agency would necessarily allow them to perform their SONGS either. I would GUESS that TS Agency *owns* the BAP SONGS (rights to them).

I remember Zelo had so much hype when they were just debuting. He was so talented and young. I really thought he'd be the next big thing. I guess TS didn't handle B.A.P very well.

Makes sense. Bang and Zelo were the first to debut as a unit. Daehyun will probably be the last to go.


TS doesn’t have any other act that can keep them afloat. I hope other companies watch this and learn their lesson.


I just hope my BAP men can get together in the future.

Finally, 4 more left to row the sinking TS Boat..Yeah the "Reunion" might be not so soon due to member military enlistment soon and age order. But their familyship is Real and confirmed by Zelo's Old Brother, OT6 is forever.

That was expected after Yongguk left. But the more interesting thing is: why do they leave? Shady lawsuits due to work or private issues? Or maybe TS will release new boy group and BAP consider it as a chance to leave? Or they feel mature for this business to following TS shitty rules? Or they have settled down with girls and strive for their own jobs and families?

But it's clear that the result is a fact and best for them

Good for him, I hope the others leave once their contract is up and band back together on their own accord.


One thing I'm wondering though, aren't they still on a world tour? Does this mean Zelo is not going to be on the remaining stops? Or has the tour finished yet? I haven't kept track of it.

not surprised, that you sexist piece of shit longan_lychee have to mention everything to make male celebrities look bad...while you wished male celebrities to die, even when they were never involved in any scandal, since according to you all male celebrities are criminals and rapists(once again just quoting your own words) and loved it, when jonghyun died, thats the kind of sexist trash you are, so stop trying so hard to seem nice, just for some likes pathetic sexist piece of shit

again, just calling you out on your pathetic act to seem nice only to get some likes, after you wished male celebrities to die on a daily basis with your longan_lychee account, even were happy when jonghyun died...you are in no position to write anything, especially to act nice when youre such a disgusting sexist trash.

if you dont know what else to say, than this obsessed bullshit, or to spread lies about me all the time, then just stfu already and piss off, we still dont need such sexist trash like you wishing male celebrities to die and make fun of them, when theyre depressed.
