iKON’s B.I Confirms Departure from K-Pop Group

After news broke earlier this month that k-pop idol B.I of iKON reportedly attempted to purchase illegal drugs, the k-pop idol has announced his departure from the k-pop group and its agency, YG Entertainment.

B.I made his official statement about his departure through a post on his Instagram page, where he wrote:

This is Kim Han Bin.

First, I would like to sincerely apologize for stirring up trouble due to my tremendously inappropriate actions.

It is true that I wanted to rely on something that I shouldn’t have had any interest in due to going through a hard and painful time. However, I was too scared and fearful to do it.

Even so, I am so ashamed and apologetic to fans who were greatly disappointed and hurt because of my wrong words and actions.

I intend to humbly self-reflect on my mistake and leave the team.

Once again, I bow my head down and sincerely apologize to fans and the members. I apologize.

YG Entertainment later confirmed B.I’s departure through their own statement, where they said:

This is YG Entertainment.
We bow our heads and apologize for disappointing everyone with our artist Kim Han Bin’s problem.
Kim Han Bin is feeling heavy responsibility due to the impact of this matter. Taking the matter seriously, he has decided to leave the team and terminate his exclusive contract.
YG has become keenly aware of our responsibility for managing our agency artists.
Once again we sincerely apologize for causing concern.

B.I debuted as the leader of iKon in 2015 alongside the group’s other members Bobby, JinhwanJu-ne, Yunhyeong, Donghyuk and Chanwoo.
