Bang Ye Dam And Mashiho Have Decided To Leave TREASURE, But Why? Bang Ye Dam and Mashiho, two members of the K-pop band TREASURE, have left the group. On Tuesday, November 8, the two members of the group’s record label, YG Entertainment, declared the end of their exclusive agreements with the business.
Bang Ye Dam is leaving the group to pursue a different professional path as a producer, according to the release from YG Entertainment, while Mashiho is leaving the group to concentrate on his health. The record company did not provide information on Mashiho’s health, but both he and Bang Ye Dam had stopped participating in group promotions as of May 2022.
Choi Hyun Suk, Jihoon, Yoshi, Junkyu, Yoon Jae Hyuk, Asahi, Doyoung, Haruto, Park Jeong Woo, and So Jung Hwan will make up the remaining 10 members of TREASURE. The K-Pop boy band was created by YG Entertainment in 2019; members were chosen for the group through the reality competition show YG Treasure Box.
The group made its debut in 2020. The group has released several albums and EPs since their debut, including The First Step: Treasure Effect in January 2021. In 2020, they issued The First Step album tetralogy, and in 2022, they returned with the EPs The Second Step: Chapter One and The Second Step: Chapter Two.
The newest publication from TREASURE, The Second Step: Chapter Two, was released on October 4, 2022, although it did not contain Bang Ye Dam or Mashiho. The two members’ absence from the group’s most recent activities and the tour was first revealed by YG Entertainment in May 2022, with the group blaming “personal reasons” for the break.
In July, it was confirmed that the group would be touring and promoting their new music as a 10-member band. On the band’s Reverse page in November, YG Entertainment published a formal statement confirming Bang Ye Dam and Mashiho’s separation from TREASURE. “Hello, this is YG Entertainment,” it said.
We would like to start by sincerely thanking all of the TREASURE MAKERS for their love and support of treasure. “We have some crucial news regarding TREASURE’s upcoming actions today. As of right now, TREASURE will consist of Choi Hyun Suk, Jihoon, Yoshi, Junkyu, Yoon Jae Hyuk, Asahi, Doyoung, Haruto, Park Jeong Woo, and So Jung Hwan, making it a ten-person group.
