Treasure fans emotional online over Yedam and Mashiho’s departure from the band

November 8 truly was a heartbreaking day for Treasure Makers as two members of Treasure are leaving and will no longer promote with the K-pop band.

The band’s management, YG Entertainment, officially announced on Tuesday the termination of Bang Yedam and Mashiho’s contract as Treasure members and YG artists.

It can be remembered that the two members went on a break from the band’s group activities just last May.

According to the management’s statement, the decision was made as Yedam needs time to completely recover from his health condition while Mashiho is taking a new career path as a producer.
