"Idol" Chanmi of Co-Ed School and all-girls-group subunit, 5Dolls, has announced on her Twitter her official leave from Core Contents Media.
"My contract with my current company has been terminated, so I am
no longer in 5dolls. I’m working hard to find a new agency so I can
stand in front of you again. Thank you so much to everyone who has
looked out for me and waited for me. Nothing is for certain yet, but when I determine a new agency,
I’ll come back to you again to meet your expectations! Please wait until
Devastated fans have been voicing their disappointment, posting comments on message boards such as:
"Co-Ed School? 5Dolls? What's that?"
"Chanmi? Is she the one T-ara hates?"
"Wow. A singer that no one cares about is leaving two groups that no one gives a fuck about. How tragic."
(just kidding. I wrote those comments because I am so funny inside my head)
Your leaving is not going to bring up shit like your former groupmate, Hwayoung's. So don't hope for a pity parade and Twitter debate over you. T-ara doesn't have time to bully you since they will be busy getting out of their own shithole of a mess their company put them in again.
Which brings me to my (comeback) article's topics:
1) Members who have left groups that no one gives a shit about.
Followed up with:
2) Members who should leave groups.
*Note: I know shit all about most groups (even the more famous idol groups). So this list (or rant) is not comprehensive AT ALL. Please feel free to add to any part in the comments section below. If I feel like it, I will edit my article accordingly to accommodate your suggestions.
1) I find it funny when members quit or leave groups, then make a big formal announcement about it as though they have personally hurt or offended their "fans". Really, you guys are small time. No one has even heard of your group. I only respect how eloquent they are when they depart at least. But honestly, no one cares about Co-Ed School or 5Dolls. Seriously.
Even After School, a group I loved so much, had no loss whatsover when Soyoung left them. If you have no idea what I am talking about, you are too young so get off this site. There is too much perversion and corruption going on here. I cannot deal with knowing that I have destroyed another innocent mind.
LEDApple was a pretty cool group. When they debuted, I really liked them. But when their lead rapper, I-OH, had to leave the group, it was because he had fucking tuberculosis. And you know who cared? Like, 50 random commentors who only gave their "get well wishes" because they were bandwagon-ing. No respect. But again, that's another group that no one cares about with people leaving that no one has even heard of.
It is almost alarming how often lineups in groups change pre- and post-debuts. Goodness, it is like the Anti Kpop-Fangirl staff all up in here.
Here is a list I compiled of groups with members who have left due to various "personal" reasons (also read: kicked the fuck out). Make a drinking game of it. Take a sip or shot for every group / member you have heard and gave a shit about. Just kidding - it would be a terrible game because NO ONE WOULD EVER DRINK:
- INY (Ella, Miyoo)
- Vanilla Lucy (Da Hae)
- GP Basic (Hannah) <--- only dirty, old, perverted men followed this group anyways. Literally, if you are a fan of this group, you classify as a pedophile.
- VNT (Lil J)
- LPG (Hanyoung, Sooah)
- Sugar (Jung Eum, Soo Jin)
- Papaya (Yoon Mi, Kyoung Ah)
- T.T.MA (Zin, Euni)
- Cleo (Eun Jung, Ye Eun)
- TAKEN (Ujun/Yoo Jun, Seungyul, Gunwoo/Alex)
- SMASH (Cheonwoo)
- Code-V / Bless (Taemin) <--- Okay, side note rant. I actually like these guys a lot. They originally debuted as Bless, but failed hard. So they tried again in 2010 as Code-V and failed again. Which is some BS. So yeah, they classify as an obscure group.
- Battle (KiHyung)
- M to M (JinHo, Sung Tae)
- 5tion (Woo Il, Seok-Ho)
[If any of these groups are actually popular, then my mistake for putting them on here. I can remove them from the list if needed]
I know more popular groups like T-ara, CHI CHI, Nine Muses, Kara, Wonder Girls, Rania, Dal Shabet, etc. have had members leave. But I did not list them because, well, people actually liked some of them.
2) Again, my knowledge is limited on who are the good members in groups who should get out and make a proper name for themselves. I know I harp on how much I miss old After School so much, but
seriously. I am so conflicted over Kahi. On one hand, I want her to go
solo because I think she is amazing (even though that did not pan out very well). But on the other hand, After School
needs her for her innovative ideas. But with her gone, I think JungAh might as well get out now, too.
Oh, and everyone agrees with this one: Hyerim should GTFO of Wonder Girls, who will fail now anyways. Yubin - run while you can! You deserve so much more in your life!
Lastly, this does not classify as a "good member of a group that is useless" because I do not like her at all, but: But seriously HyunA, you are doing fine on your own. Just leave them. Let them fend for themselves. The group's name is also 4-fucking-Minute. But there are FIVE of you. One of you has to go, so you might as well leave now before my OCD takes matters into its own hands.
Side note: Hello everyone. It has been a long time since my last real article, hasn't it? Firstly, thank you for your continued love and support. I am sorry that I have spent so much time writing only weekly features as though I returned to being a trainee. I just wanted to make sure I could improve my writing and typing abilities so that I can show our fans (you readers) my new and improved self. Please look out for me now that I have returned. I will work hard to meet your previous expectations. Thank you. hFighting!
