Unfortunately, United TAKEN Ones has another sad announcement to make.
Seung Yul and Geon Woo left TAKEN and are no longer TAKEN members.
Some of you might have seen Geon Woo’s tweet from a little while ago:
Many of you will be very sad or upset because Seung Yul and Geon Woo leaving TAKEN, but please try to understand that both of them made the decision on their own. While Geon Woo wants to concentrate on his studies at the moment, no further information about Seung Yul’s reason to leave TAKEN was given.
United TAKEN Ones asks all fans to respect the feelings, privacy and decision of Seung Yul and Geon Woo - and please also respect the feeling of the remaining TAKEN members! United TAKEN Ones hopes that the fans won’t put pressure on the TAKEN members or ex-members.
So although you’re most likely extremly saddened by their departure from TAKEN, please don’t create rumors and please try to show your support to the remaining TAKEN members, as they as well had a hard time… It’s understandable that you want to see Seung Yul and Geon Woo together with the other TAKEN members, but please keep in mind that Seung Yul’s and Geon Woo’s well-being is the most important.
Please also know that the remaining TAKEN member will continue on as a group, meaning that TAKEN is NOT disbanded! Despite this very sad news, United TAKEN Ones hopes that the fans will continue to support TAKEN.
(And for those who still don’t know: Tae Hyuk returned to TAKEN and is officially a TAKEN member again!)Source: Geon Woo, TAKEN's leader Seong Won
