Member Youjin Officially Left the Group, KNK to Find a New Agency and Continue Promoting with 4 Members
| 11 Sep, 2018
Youjin has decided to depart from KNK.
A representative of the group's agency, YNB Entertainment, revealed, "Kim Youjin, who is not in good health, has decided to leave the group after discussion. The other members have a strong will to promote, so they have agreed to continue on with the team."
However, KNK will no longer be managed by YNB Entertainment. The group is now searching for a new agency after their contract with YNB Entertainment has been terminated. The contract has been ended before the expiry, reportedly since the agency has difficulties in managing their artists.
Upon his departure, Youjin left a handwritten message to fans, thanking for their support and apologizing for making them disappointed with the sudden news.

"Hello. This is KNK's Kim Youjin.
First of all, I'd like to send my apologies to Tinkerbells who have been worrying and waiting for me. For the past two years since debuting as KNK's main vocal, I've been very happy.
It was a long-cherished dream since I was young and I wanted to do better than anyone else. As those thoughts became burdensome, the days of being disappointed in myself increased, leading to psychological difficulties. I ultimately came to the difficult decision of leaving the group. I took times to concentrate on treatment, but it has become very difficult to stand and perform on stage. I would like to express my sincere apologies to Tinkerbells and my members for making this decision.
I wrote in my letter for our first anniversary that I was very happy to be with good people and to have good memories. From before my debut to my activities with KNK, I was always happy and thankful to you guys for making happy memories with me and being with me. I made many promises with Tinkerbells and I'm very sorry to you and my members that I can't keep them all.
I won't forget your support.
Once again, I'd like to apologize to Tinkerbells and KNK members Seungjun, Inseong, Jihun, and Heejun who gave me a lot of love and support all this time. I will never forget and forever treasure the love you gave me for two years. I'm sorry to Tinkerbells who believed in me and waited for me until the end.
Please give a lot of warm support and love to my KNK members who understood my decision. I will also support and pray for them.
Thank you very much for these time. I'm sorry and thank you."
We wish all the very best for both Youjin and KNK.
