WINNER Talk About How Difficult Taehyun’s Departure Was

WINNER revealed how Nam Taehyun leaving the group affected the rest of the members and how WINNER will always be 5 in a recent interview.

WINNER just made their first comeback as 4 members and in a recent interview, they talked about how Nam Taehyun’s departure affected the group as a whole.

Kang Seung Yoon mentioned the difficulties the group faced when Nam Taehyun announced he would be leaving the group. He went on to discuss how badly he wanted a comeback and the real reason they continued to work on WINNER’s comeback quickly.

“Because of his health condition, Nam Taehyun was unable to continue together with us. It’s true that this was one of the most difficult times for us.

More than the fact that I couldn’t do anything about it, I was more worried about the fans. Aren’t there are many people who love Nam Taehyun. I was also worried because he was doing very well as our main vocalist.”

Kim Jin Woo then talked about how he had to practice singing, as Nam Taehyun’s lines would now have to be covered by another member. Due to this, Kim Jin Woo spent a lot of time during WINNER’s time away receiving vocal lessons and practicing in the studio in order to make the group’s transition from 5 members to 4 as smooth as possible.

Finally, Kang Seung Yoon reassured fans that even if there are only 4 people performing, WINNER will always be 5.

“Since we are 4 members now, I think we should humbly accept that fact. It seems like WINNER will always be 5 members in the fan’s hearts. I do not want to erase the 5 membered WINNER. I hope that everyone can give lots of love to the 4 membered WINNER too.”
