News reports claimed that his recent cheating scandal was the cause of his decision to leave the cast. Kangta was recently caught in two dating rumors where a media press claimed he was dating actress Jung Yoo Mi, but his ex-girlfriend, Woo Joo Ahn, claimed they were back together.

Kangta had taken to personally apologize to his fans about the disturbances.
As I’ve been active in the industry for a long time, I should have also shown a better side to myself through my personal life. All of this happened because I’m a lacking person.
I will look back on my life and deeply reflect on my actions to become a more mature person.
