Ahyeon’s departure from BABY MONSTER was reported by the media on November 15.
According to reports, Ahyeon left the group right before their debut due to personal reasons. BABY MONSTER was initially planned to have 7 members but will continue as 6 members.
If true, this confirms the rumors that the idol trainee left YG, which were sparked a few months ago when the group was seen in various events without Ahyeon. Fans speculated that Ahoeong had left the band after BABY MONSTER members were seen attending BLACKPINK’s concert in his absence.
On November 15, YG Entertainment informed OSEN via email that they “will provide further information once we have more information.” BABY MONSTER marks the debut of a new girl group by yG in 7 years, following the release of BLACKPINK’s album on October 27th at KST.
