Ever since their debut back in 2016, Momoland (often stylized in all capital letters, also known by their acronym MMLD) has entertained K-pop fans with their unique, upbeat style. Though they did well when they first started, Momoland started earning real recognition in 2018 with their songs Bboom Bboom and Baam. Since then, loyal fans have wondered what they would release next.
Momoland has been on the up and up. Sadly, it looks like two of the members will not continue on this girl group journey any longer. It has been reported that members Taeha and Yeonwoo are leaving Momoland.
MLD Entertainment confirms Taeha and Yeonwoo’s departure
MLD Entertainment reported on November 30 (KST) that Taeha and Yeonwoo are departing from Momoland. The entertainment agency posted an announcement, in English, on Momoland’s official Daum fan cafe.
“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.
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.
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.”
To further prove that Taeha is no longer a part of MLD Entertainment, she officially opened her own Instagram account. She even uploaded her first post to her account, which can be seen below.
For those unable to read Hangul, Taeha wrote about how much love she received as a member of Momoland and how happy she was being a part of the girl group. Now she wants to shine as Kim Tae-Ha, start fresh, and present a better, prettier side of herself, along with good music.
With Taeha and Yeonwoo leaving Momoland, Pinky Love will end their time as part of the girl group. For those who want to see the two girls’ last performance, the music video for Pinky Love is shared below.
