YG Entertainment announced that Bang Ye-dam and Mashiho are no longer part of TREASURE.

The entertainment agency made the announcement on Weverse on Tuesday, November 8.

"First of all, we would like to express our sincere gratitude to all of the TREASURE MAKERS for all the support and love towards TREASURE. Today, we have an important announcement about TREASURE’s future activities," YG wrote.


The agency then revealed that TREASURE will now continue as a 10-member group.

"Going forward, TREASURE transforms into a 10-member group – consisting of Choi Hyun suk, Jihoon, Yoshi, Junkyu, Yoon Jae hyuk, Asahi, Doyoung, Haruto, Park Jeong woo, and So Jung hwan," YG said.

The agency said that they made a mutual decision with Bang Ye-dam and Mashiho for the two members to depart the group.

"After a long and careful discussion with Mashiho and Bang Ye-dam [it] was mutually agreed to conclude the contracts between the two and YG Entertainment," YG shared.

"We have reached such agreement so that Mashiho could have enough time to recover from his health condition, and Bang Ye -am could pursue his career as a producer," the agency added.

"Knowing that all of TREASURE’s fans have been waiting for Mashiho and Bang Ye-dam, we are very sad about their departure as they have been with TREASURE from the beginning. We ask for your continuing support for Mashiho and Bang Ye-dam," YG further said.

"YG Entertainment will put its best efforts in communicating with TREASURE MAKERS and supporting TREASURE’s future activities. Thank you so much," the agency added.

Back in May 2022, Bang Ye-dam and Mashiho took a hiatus from TREASURE's group activities. In a statement that YG issued back in May to Newsen, Bang Ye-dam took a break to concentrate on studying music as he wanted to enhance his production skills while Mashiho took the hiatus as he would be spending more time with his family in Japan.
