On October 15, FNC Entertainment announced that the contract of AOA Black's drummer Youkyung has come to an end and that she will no longer renew her contract with the agency, allkpop wrote.

In its statement posted via AOA's official fan cafe, the company said:

"Hello, this is FNC Entertainment.

We're here to inform you fans of some unfortunate news.

We would like to announce the fact that our contract with AOA's drummer Youkyung has come to an end. We were able to arrive at this conclusion after a long and thorough discussion, and we ultimately decided to respect Youkyung's wishes."

However, the agency also noted that although the artist's contract with the agency expired, Youkyung still plans to join AOA for the future band projects of the group as an honorary member and drummer. Youkyung also confirmed this by posting a message to the group's fan cafe. Her message reads:

"Hello, this is Youkyung, hehe.

It feels like I've come to write for the first time in a while. I feel like the reason why I'm back might disappoint a lot of people, so my heart feels a little heavy writing this.

I'm sure there are some who have already heard, but after a lot of conversation and considerations, I have decided to end my contract with FNC, who I've been with for the past five years.

I haven't really had many promotions with them, and this post is not a final goodbye, but I do feel sad about the AOA members, who I've been together with since my late teens to now, when I am 24, and also thinking about greeting and cheering people who have always helped us. But I also feel grateful.

It was a precious time that I was able to meet great people, and also fans who have always shown love. From now on, as I always have, I'll be preparing to appear out of nowhere with a better image, hehe.

Also, if AOA Black comes back with a new song, I'll unchangingly be their drummer! I'll work hard to come back as fast as I can, with the best image. Please continue to support AOA, FNC, and me! Thank you!"

Goodluck to your future endeavors, Youkyung!
