I would like to take this opportunity to express gratitude to my fellow members as well. I love you and am really sorry."

He continued, "There were times in the past when I was immature and made some mistakes. However, after I became a trainee and made debut, I have never once gone off track. I always tried my best not to do anything that I would regret in the future. But I have decided to leave MONSTA X, because I didn't want to cause any more trouble to people around me. Most of all though, I felt horrible about letting you down like this."

Lastly, he said, "Please keep giving your full support to MONSTA X. The rest of the guys have nothing to do with my past. They are the greatest guys in the world. Once again, thank you for giving me happiness and I'm very sorry for everything."WONHO Departure(Credit= STARSHIP Entertainment)
