Lee Chaeyeon And LABOUM’s Haein Officially Drop Out Of Mnet’s “Queendom Puzzle”

They will not continue with the competition.

This article has been edited to include Mnet’s statement.

Lee Chaeyeon and LABOUM‘s Haein have reportedly decided to drop out of Mnet‘s upcoming survival show Queendom Puzzle.

According to an exclusive report from Hankyung, both Lee Chaeyeon and Haein have recently decided that they would not be continuing on with Queendom Puzzle. Both of the idols have already participated in the first recording session, so Mnet has decided that they will keep the two in the broadcast instead of editing them out.

Mnet has also reportedly decided to not cast two idols to replace Lee Chaeyeon and Haein, so the competition will proceed beginning with 26 contestants, not the 28 as initially planned.

Mnet has partially confirmed Hankyung’s report with their statement to Star News.

Lee Chaeyeon and Haein have dropped out of our new variety program Queendom Puzzle for personal reasons.

There is currently no decision made yet regarding casting additional members to replace them.
