Hello everyone welcome to this week in Kpop. Where I talk about some really sad stuff… *sniffle*
It is with a heavy heart, I bring up this topic… Lee Joon and Thunder did not renew their contracts with J.Tune Camp. That’s been circulating and confirmed for a while. But it gets much worse. Lee Joon and Thunder have left J.tune Camp and MBLAQ… Forever! And to make it even worse… MBLAQ will continue to promote with the remaining three members, and possibly add more in the future! WHAT?!
So the contracts of Lee Joon and Thunder have officially expired. They did all the activities they were contracted to do (ie: their previous concert). Due to the fact they did not renew, they were cut. The two members’ legal representatives stated that Lee Joon and Thunder are not interested in renewing their contracts and are moving forward in their personal activities (ie: drama, solos, ect). The final nail has been hammered into the coffin… Their law firm was quoted saying this:
“On behalf of our clients Lee Joon and Thunder, we are here to make clear our position regarding the truth about the two’s contracts as well as their future activities. First, Lee Joon and Thunder’s contract with J.Tune Camp as well as their MBLAQ activities have ended with their Curtain Call concert at the end of November. And as for their future activities, Lee Joon will solely focus on filming his ongoing drama ‘Mister Baek’, while Thunder will be focusing on music studies.Lastly, we’d like to thank all the fans who have given their support and love to our clients these past 5 years, and the two will repay fans with a more matured image. Thank you.”
2014 has been a horrible year in KPOP! So many groups having members leave! MBLAQ was one of those solid groups that has been around a while (debut 2009) so I thought they’d be safe, their company seemed okay. But, it happened… RIP MBLAQ as five members! I’ll miss melodious voices of Thunder and Lee Joon. They are both good actors, so maybe we’ll see them in movies?
T_T here’s the chorus of “I will always love you” by Whitney Houston because it’s a good song for these sad feels https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ebEu14GPlRc
AND I-I-I-I WILL ALWAYS LOVE JOON OO-OO-OO-OO-OO, I WILL ALWAYS LOVE THUNDER TOO-OO-OO-OO-OO! T-T
And remember, no hickies…
*cries in corner*
