Rocky, a member of the K-pop group ASTRO, revealed he is quitting the group after seven years and ending his exclusive deal with the management company Fantagio. Soompi claims that following a “long discussion” with the agency, he made the decision to cancel both his involvement and his contract with Fantagio.
This occurs two months after the contracts of four of his bandmates, namely Sanha, Moonbin, Cha Eun Woo, and JinJin, were all extended. The final member, MJ, who is presently completing his required military service, did not renew his contract.
A number of other K-Pop superstars are also pausing their careers in order to complete their obligations; BTS members Jin and J-Hope have already started their enrolment. Rocky hasn’t made any announcements about his music career in the future, but given that he has acted in a number of K-Dramas, he might pursue acting in the future.
