According to the label, "After a deep conversation with Rocky, who has been with us for the past seven years with ASTRO, we have decided to end his activities as an ASTRO member. We express our gratitude toward Rocky who has done his best as an ASTRO member and support for his future endeavors."



Rocky also wrote a letter to fans sharing that he has decided not to continue with ASTRO and Fantagio. He wrote, "I will be leaving Fantagio, who I have been with for 14 years and will end my activities with ASTRO.
