Tiyak na ikinalulungkot ng mga fans ng all-girl K-pop group na MOMOLAND dahil umalis na sa grupo ang dalawang members nito na sina Taeha at Yeonwoo.
In-announce ng kanilang agency ang pag-alis nina Taeha at Yeonwoo sa Momoland noong November 30, 2019. Nabuo ang MOMOLAND noong 2016 dahil sa reality show na Finding Momoland.
Ang ibig sabihin ng MOMOLAND ay "Merry-Go-Round."
Ito ang official statement mula sa MLD Entertainment:
"We would like to make a statement regarding our performers, MOMOLAND, who are reorganized as a six-member team. Taeha and Yeonwoo, who have been with MOMOLAND as a part of the team, are about to make a new start by leaving the team today.
"Both Taeha and Yeonwoo have thought deeply about their career path for a long time and upon having enough time for their thoughts, have had much conversation with the company."
Ayon sa agency susuportahan pa rin nila ang magiging bagong career ni Taeha: "First of all, following careful consideration and respecting her own opinion as a top priority, Taeha is going to make a new start at a new place with her exclusive contract terminated. Thus, the company will fully support and encourage her new start as much as possible."
Binalita naman ng agency na kasama sa SBS drama na Alice si Yeonwoo:
"While Yeonwoo has had deep affection for her MOMOLAND activities, she has decided that continuing together with her actress activities would be too much strain for both her team and herself so to leave the team and concentrate on her career as our actress under MLD Entertainment."
Ang isa pang miyembro ng MOMOLAND na si Daisy ay kasalukuyang in discussion pa with the agency.
"Finally, regarding Daisy, since we are still going through a mutual discussion we will inform you as soon as we reach an agreement.
"This decision was carefully made after much conversation and discussion between the performers and the company, so we would like to request you to restrain from making unnecessary speculations and causing misunderstandings.
"We would like to ask you for warm encouragement and support for all the members who would go on their new path from now on."
Simula noong mabuo ang MOMOLAND, nagkaroon na sila ng hit singles na "Bhoom Bhoom" and "I'm So Hot and Baam."
Ang kanilang debut studio album na Chiri Chiri ay ni-release noong September 2019. Meron na silang limang EPs (Extended Play) na "Welcome to Momoland", "Freeze!", "Great!", "Fun To The World" and "Show Me."
