Translation of YG’s official announcement:
Hello, we’re YG ENTERTAINMENT.
First of all, we would like to express my sincere gratitude to TREASURE MAKERs who are sending great love to TREASURE, and we would like to inform you about TREASURE’s future activities as follows.
In the future, Treasure will reorganize the team into a 10-member system of Choi Hyun-seok, Ji-hoon, Yoshi, Jun-kyu, Yoon Jae-hyuk, Asahi, Doyoung, Haruto, Park Jung-woo, and So Jung-hwan. After careful consideration, MASHIHO and BANG YE DAM, as well as YG Entertainment, decided to conclude the contracts.
Mashiho needs to recover sufficiently for health reasons, and in the case of Bang Ye-dam, he made the decision to create an environment where he can grow as a producer with his own music color.
We knew that our fans were waiting for MASHIHO and BANG YE DAM’s return, and we are also very sad as they have been with TREASURE from the start. However, we ask for your continuing support for Mashiho and Bang Ye-dam.
YG will continue to communicate with TREASURE MAKERs and do its best to promote TREASURE.
Thank you.YG Entertainment. weverse
