    most shocked about Eunjin & Choa they liked what they did

  • Anynomous Ahgase

    honestly I'm still heartbroken from eunjin leaving but I really hope she's happier now. Have a good life eunjin😭🤗

    eventually you gonna leave the industry after 10 years but not everyone can do that.. they just become weary

  • justiady kalvianto

    I really miss Choa the most. she's my favorite female idol!
    too bad that she had to leave. but maybe for the good.
    i bet lotsa these female idols were all caught up in the "sponsorship" deals.. that's why lotsa them battle depression, anxiety etc etc..
    and maybe that's when they decided to leave. because the industry is "dirty"

    Good for them! K companies should not treat their artists not like humans! Otherwise, suicides, injuries, damage to their health both physically and mentally, lots of problems. It's very sickening...

    Chaos entertainment company said not too long ago that she’s still with the company, just with with AOA, and will make solo music on her own terms and own schedule. I hope that’s still true and we can see more of her soon 💕

    Nah Sunye didn't quit her fake ass took advantage of contracts not once, but TWICE. Most recently she announced her joining a new company, plans to return to the industry... and then right after announced that she's already well into pregnancy again. So she basically hasn't done any real work despite being under contracts twice since leaving WG... smdh

    While in taiwan there's this girlgroup named 'SHE' been going on for 17years long and still receive a LOT of love even tho 2 out of 3 member is married (1 divorced after, the other has kid and brings him to concert)
    No drama, no antis, just happy idols being their own self, turning from girls to women, being loved by people and receives so much prayers for their happiness
    Hope K-netizen can learn from taiwan's, be4 another jonghyun happens

    I'm relieved that these ladies decided to turn away from the limelight and not end their life like those who couldn't endure the pressure anymore. Korean fans should realize that idols are humans too. they deserve to love and be loved, to continue schooling or do whatever they want as long as they do not harm another being.

    Being an Idol is technically their JOB, a PART of their life. They should be able to build a family and live a “normal” life without quitting their JOB. Let’s say you’re an office worker but then decided to get married and have kids, would u leave your job for it? NO cuz it’s just a PART of your bigger priorities in life. Seriously can’t believe they have to drop everything they’ve ever worked for just cuz they want to live a normal life

    Wrong on APink. The poor girl was thrown out by her agency head because her popularity with fans was less than the others. The story of quitting to go to University was media play. Her father went live with the truth and media was full of it for weeks. Her father is wealthy, so she did not suffer materially.

    wait... i remember back then there's quite buzz/rumour abt Yookyung kicked out by her agency or sth n her dad made some statement... or sth... don't really remember but other oldie kpopper might've heard? n seems mostly quit bcuz pregnant/getting married... Sunghee was really a shocker though(the reason given was she did badly at studies.. but it was rumoured that religion was also a reason) ... bcuz... i bet none fans back then could imagine KARA without her since she's the superior main vocals... n i remember feeling bummed they replaced her with members who can't fill the main vocal void n even had to change concept from cool kickass/matured to super childish/cutesy... at least Jiyoung's a decent singer... didn't know that abt Sunghee's husband tho... err...

    I dunno if it's only me but I noticed that some International fans are hoping that their faves to be in a relationship and are willing to support for the happiness of their faves but there are some knetz who doesn't want to see their faves in a relationship... Why can't we just be happy to whatever life they choose? It's their life not ours. /sigh

    The reason why most of the idol left their group to pursue their education is because education in Korea is very important. If let’s say their group fame didn’t last Long they can’t find proper jobs. The education cert in Korea is very important when finding a job . Just like it is here in Singapore. It is a smart move.

    Aoa had the biggest lost. Choa outshined all the memebers with her vocal. Losing the main vocalist who cant be replaced is really bad. I hope that one day Choa will return to Aoa as the main vocalist again. She was the reason why i listen to aoa only. Other than that Kara lost their main vocalist. Her vocals were stronger than the rest and she also outshined the members. I know that Kara is big but if Sunghee didnt quit Kara wouldve gotten bigger and didnt disband.

    I wouldn’t want to be an idol either. Your company controls a lot of what you do, and it’s so hard because you not only have to be talented, you have to look the part. You wouldn’t have a normal life. So I respect idols who handle it well everyday, but I also respect those who decide it isn’t for them. Also, the artist who left to further their education make me so proud. Like yes girl, go get that education.

      tbh these like korean over obsessive rude fans need to stop being shit to idols and need to stop treating them as property. it's damaging to our fandom and it's disgusting how we treat others sometimes, go treat people the way u want to be treated or just stfu. yes you can reform but please don't be rude to our idols. they work so hard to make a living out of this industry and they are surviving the reality of it, imagine if u were in there.

    공부하겠다고 나가고 임신했다고 나가고 결혼한다고 나가고 이런걸 왜 한국팬들이 문제라고 떠들어 대냐
    공짜로 올라가는 유투브 조회수 말곤 k팝에 1도 도움안되는것들이 오지랖은 시발
    일뽕인데 k팝 빠는 끔찍한 혼종 동남아 새끼들 그냥 일본 가수나 빨어
    시발 8천 규모로 콘을 잡아도 적자나는 답도없는 지역에서 사는 주제에 배놔라 감놔라 쩔어요 하여튼
    이게다 동남아 새끼들 멤버로 받아준 회사들 잘못이다 받을거면 베트남 정도 받든가 특히 태국좀 그만 받어 시발 무개념천지 좆같은 팬덤 ㅡㅡ
