INFINITE’s L has posted a hand written letter on his Instagram, revealing he has left Woollim Entertainment as his contract expired last week.
In his letter, he thanked Inspirits for the 10 years they spent together, and said he will be ready to help the Infinite members whenever they need him.
Hello, this is Kim Myung Soo… L.
I am writing to you all after a long time but I’m afraid I have some bad news to share, and I am very sorry to Inspirits. And I would like to thank you for always supporting me. My heart feels heavy because of what I’m going to tell you is going to be sad news for the Inspirits who have sent me so much love.
My contract with Woollim Entertainment concluded last week. After a lot of thought and consideration, I made a difficult decision. After thinking for a long time, I have decided to move on with my solo career. I felt like I needed a new challenge in my life, and now I’m going to start that new challenge.
From my trainee period to debut to now, I have learned, grown, and felt a lot the past 10 years with Woollim. Time seems to have passed very quickly. I debuted with INFINITE and spent time with Inspirit. Every moment together was a happy time.
To the members of INFINITE who I spent all my time with, I want to say thank you and I promise we will always be together. It’s difficult to explain in words just how much INFINITE and Inspirits have helped me since my debut. Even though we are together, in just a slightly different shape and style, the feeling that we will continue to support and believe in each other remains the same.
And to Lee Joong Yeob CEO and Lee Ji Young vice-president, and all the members of the Woollim family who have given me unforgettable memories and time, thank you all for your support. I will work hard to greet you all with a better image to repay everyone for all of their support they have given me.
I will continue to be with the INFINITE members and will do my best to be with them whenever they need me. Thank you, Inspirit, for trusting me and giving me so much love this whole time. Thank you.
I will try my best to be able to greet you all soon. Thank you for reading all the way to the end.
— Kim Myung Soo
Earlier in the week, it was rumored that he would be leaving Woollim Entertainment. Sadly for fans, the news is true, but as L already said, he will be with INFINITE forever.
