K-pop group KNK member Heejun will be leaving the group.
On January 13, 220 Entertainment announced the withdrawal of member Heejun Oh from KNK and Inseong Jeong’s enlistment in the military through its official social media site.
220 Entertainment said, “Heejun Oh, who has been a member of KNK for six years since 2016, has concluded group activities.”
The agency also said, “Inseong Jeong will join the military on February 8. He will continue his activities after his discharge from the military.”
K-pop group KNK debuted as a five-member group with the release of its single album ‘KNOCK’ in 2016. They continued to change through the withdrawal of Youjin Kim in 2018, joining new member Dongwon Lee in 2019, and the departure of Seoham Park in 2021. As Heejun Oh withdrew this time, KNK will become a three-member group.
