There have been many speculations made in K-Pop, but most of them get debunked pretty quickly. However, there have been a couple of speculations in K-Pop that ended up becoming true. Here’s a list of a few of them.
1. Yeonwoo leaving MOMOLAND
In mid-2019, many started to speculate that Yeonwoo was going to leave both MOMOLAND and MLD Entertainment, as she had not been participating in group activities.
Both MLD Entertainment and Yeonwoo quickly responded to these rumors, saying that the rumors were false and that Yeonwoo was away because she was filming a K-Drama.
This really caught me off guard, but I’m writing as soon as I could because I know my fans probably feel surprised and hurt right now. I’ve been occupied with filming a drama. I just wasn’t able to openly share the details about it.
A couple of months later, MLD Entertainment made shocking news when they announced that Yeonwoo was leaving MOMOLAND. They stated that she was leaving as she wanted to focus on her career as an actress and that they wanted to respect that. However, many netizens have started to speculate that Yeonwoo was kicked out MOMOMLAND, as she once uploaded a post that seemed to allude to this.
Why do people still hold onto words that don’t come from my mouth, thoughts that aren’t in my head, and actions that I don’t do? No matter what changed about me and how hard things were, I don’t want to hang in over there anymore. I don’t want to cry anymore. I just want to create a future and be happy with all of you whom I love. You’ve all done enough hard work.
Right now, I am doing a new job. I don’t have any other choices. I have to do this to continue with my dream. I feel like I have to do this to live. I have to do this to continue to be able to meet you all.
