(Photo : Facebook) LEDApple are losing three members this December. K-Pop idol band LEDApple will see some lineup changes in the new year.
On October 29th, Starkim Entertainment released a statement regarding male group LEDApple revealing that Hanbyul, Kyumin, and Kwangyeon are leaving the group in December.
"This coming December 2014, LEDApple will have their last live tour, "Thank You LEDA," and Hanbyul, Kyumin and Kwangyeon will halt their activities as band members," explained the label. "Youngjun and Hyoseok will continue as a new LEDApple with three additional members that will join them in 2015."
The company went on to explain that the three departing members will focus on other activities and that there is no bad blood among them and the remaining LEDApple band members.
"This does not mean Hanbyul, Kyumin and Kwangyeon are quitting as part of the LEDApple team, they are planning to continue achieving their dreams through projects."
Lead singer Hanbyul will be focusing on solo projects, according to Starkim, while Kyumin, the group"s lead rapper, wishes to focus more specifically on his hip-hop career.
For Kwangyeon, however, the decision is medical. "There are difficulties for him to continue stage activities as there is a possibility that his lower back pains will worsen," the company explained through the statement. "The doctors have recommended a temporary long-term rest and treatment."
Since their debut in 2010, LEDApple has seen a number of members leave the group for various reasons.The members that have previously left the group are Sung Hyun, Min Yong, Jae Hoon, I-OH, and Keon U.
Once Hanbyul, Kyumin, and Kwangyeon leave the group, three new members will fill in the spots.

LEDApple recently celebrated their 4th anniversary on October 7th. For supporting, cheering and staying by their sides, thank you. Coming December 2014, LEDApple will have their last live tour, "Thank You LEDA," and Hanbyul, Kyumin and Kwangyeon will halt their activities as band members. Youngjun and Hyoseok will continue as a new LEDApple with three additional members that will join them in 2015. But this does not mean Hanbyul, Kyumin and Kwangyeon are quitting as part of the LEDApple team, they are planning to continue achieving their dreams through projects.
As part of the LEDApple team, Hanbyul will take a leap forward into activities as a solo singer, Kyumin will start unit activities singing hip-hop, a genre he loves.
For Kwangyeon, there is difficulties for him to continue stage activities as there is a possibility that his lower back pains will worsen, and the doctors have recommended a temporary long-term rest and treatment.
The agency has thought a lot about this and held several meetings, and as the LEDApple members recently celebrated their 4th anniversary, they have come to a conclusion to spread the activities of the members individually. Even individually and to reach the most happiness, the company would like to respect what the members would like to do. Although their activities as a five member band will stop, three members will be welcomed into LEDApple along with Youngjun and Hyoseok, and we promise to show you a better looking LEDApple that will continue on in 2015.
And to pursue better music, or in the case of some band members, their health, please look forward to [LEDApple"s] new activities with the three new members with unchanging support.
For the sudden announcement, wed like to apologize from the bottom of our hearts for worrying fans.
Before the activities begin for the new LEDApple, the current LEDApple members will be performing all of their nine performances in December, and we promise to show you their best appearance to fans. Starting from 2015, please expect activities from the new LEDApple.
Please note that due to the lineup change, we would like to inform you that the album scheduled to be released at the end of the year has been postponed. To everyone who was looking forward to the release, we are sorry. Until a new release date is determined, we will inform everyone, thank you.
LEDApple is going through member changes once again, according to the boys" official Japanese website, which posted a statement regarding this development. According to the statement, their live tour, "Thank You LEDA" in December of this year, will be their last as they"re currently constructed as members Hanbyul, Kyumin, and Kwangyeon will halt their promotions with the band. As a result, Youngjun and Hyoseok will continue on with three new members next year.
However, rather than saying the boys will be leaving the group, the statement emphasized that they would be taking on personal projects that would take over most of their time or will have health conditions to nurse. Hanbyul will be embarking on a solo career while Kyumin will pursue his passion for hip hop through a new unit group.Unfortunately for Kwangyeon, it appears it would be too stressful on his lower back to continue performing on stage and he would require a long period of rest and treatment.
It isn"t the last of the group as you know it yet! The current members will participate in all nine performances in December, and the company asks that fans look forward to the new LEDApple once it starts promotions next year. Additionally, as a result of these changes, their album release date in 2014 has been pushed back.
