Amuse Korea recently took to CROSS GENE’s official website to post an official statement announcing Takuya’s departure. Their notice read, ” To all the fans who support CROSS GENE, as of December 10, CROSS GENE member Takuya has graduated from the group.
“We are extremely apologetic to be bringing such sudden news to fans who have always shown their support for CROSS GENE. Takuya has been with us from his trainee days and for approximately seven years as a member of CROSS GENE, but he will now be walking a different path from CROSS GENE with the expiration of his contract.
“The four remaining members of CROSS GENE (Shin, Yongseok, Sangmin, Seyoung) will continue to be more active, not just as individuals but also as CROSS GENE, in 2019. We ask for your continued love and support for the members of CROSS GENE, who continue to work hard to show new sides of themselves. We also ask people to warmly watch over Takuya as he starts his new beginning.”

Takuya explained in a V-Live (that has since been deleted by Amuse) that his contract with Amuse expired and he chose not to re-sign with them, meaning that he is leaving Cross Gene. Cross Gene will continue as a 4-member group while Takuya pursues acting and modeling. He was really sorry about the way everything turned out and that he wanted CandY to support the members who are still in Cross Gene.(source pinatadog 1 2)
