'Produce 101's Kim Ye Hyun clarified his reasons for leaving WIDMAY Entertainment, with an SNS post as follows:
"Hello, it's Kim Ye Hyun. I've left my label, but the reason why they said I left was a little weird so I've decided to write this. I did not leave the label to study, but to prepare for musicals and college. There is a definite difference between them. I told them clearly, but some people were confused, so I'm writing this to clarify. Also, many people are asking if I had really talked to them about entering Snuper, but I never said I wanted to join. The article was released without my consent. I saw a lot of criticism saying that I got some air time on a show so I wanted to join a group that already existed, so I'm putting my own official statement. Thank you."
