"It’s Difficult For Idol Maknaes"…Sanghoon-Dongho’s Withdrawal Due To The Cruelty Of The Idol World
"I’ll stop the idol activities for the meantime. I want to think and consider about my future career plans. I’m thankful for the love given by the fans and I’m sorry to many people."
The group 100%’s youngest member, Sanghoon revealed that he has withdrawn from the group. His announcement shocked everyone after it has been said that 100% will be making their comeback in March.
But the fans have anticipated this. When Sanghoon didn’t appear for the group activities and took the group’s name out from his individual twitter profile, the fans foresaw his departure and were anxious after the phrase “100% Sanghoon Withdrawal” came up on the portal site search results.
The same thing happened 5 months earlier too when UKiss youngest member, Dongho withdrew from the group in October 2013. But Dongho was in the situation where he didn’t take part in the group activities for a few months before that which made fans felt uneasy and the fans were alerted about Dongho’s situation through fansites prior to his announcement of withdrawal.
Dongho’s agency announced that “Dongho will stop his entertainment activities temporarily due to his health reasons and being not suitable for the entertainment world.”
Sanghoon and Dongho are 22 years old (born in the year 1993) and 21 years old (born in the year 1994) respectively. Sanghoon debuted when he was 20 years old while Dongho debuted when he was 15 years old. Both of them were able to fulfill their dreams of leading the lives of entertainers but at the same time, they had to face the harsh reality of the entertainment world at such a young age.
They went through the tough period of being trainees and had to give up the chance to have a normal student’s life as well as couldn’t have regular meals and personal time. Both Sanghoon and Dongho went through these at an age where they needed love and care from their family.
Sanghoon and Dongho were able to live their dreams but they too faced frustration for a long time and that frustration couldn’t be solved easily. Both of them took the same solution path of withdrawing from the groups after discussions with their family members as well as with the company/agency.
There are a lot of idol group such as 100% and UKiss in the Korean entertainment world but only 100 groups or so shine on the stage and their names well-known to everyone. And out of these popular 100 groups or so, only 20-30 groups will have the chance to appear on music programs regularly. There are definitely more groups waiting to release albums and take part in these entertainment activities and the number of trainees waiting to debut is even higher.
The duration of the groups’ comebacks nowadays are getting shorter. It’s an unavoidable situation for the idol groups to keep releasing mini albums and single albums due to the fierce competition between the groups. Therefore they don’t even have much time for practice in between their comebacks. On top of that, they have to travel overseas due to their promotion schedules and thus, idol groups do not have time to relax. This might be the reason for more “next Sanghoon-Dongho” to appear in the future.

1. [+274, -4] If he doesn't have the talent or confidence to succeed as a celebrity, I don't thin it's a bad idea to call it quits early
2. [+159, -15] Dongho just never had the potential as a celebrity.......
3. [+56, -4] 100%????????????? Sorry. First time hearing that name..
4. [+14, -2] Nevermind Dongho, who's Sang Hoon? ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ 100%, a real nugu
5. [+14, -3] I honestly only noticed him from 100%..;; Did he leave because he didn't see the group getting anywhere?
6. [+13, -4] Don't worry, it was just as tragic for us having to watch your acting
7. [+9, -1] That Sang Hoon kid worked really hard on IAC, but he's leaving...? I still remember his face because he was so good at the standing jump.. Anyway, I hope he does well in whatever he wants to pursue~
8. [+6, -2] If the future of your group isn't that great, then I don't think it's a bad idea to start over again;; Especially since they're so young;;

The group 100% has revealed the main image for their new album through their official Facebook page on 6th March.
This image that looks like a scene from a thriller movie features 2 photos and the title track
