Progress Report on Groups Promoting a Member Short

Progress Report on Groups Promoting a Member Short

This month saw a sizeable amount of idol groups that are promoting, for various reasons, one member short. These absences arent due to a sudden injury that takes a member out of promotions at the very last minute, but its where the member is absent from the entire process of the comeback. As with most group acts, the absence of a member affects the group dynamic depending on the degree of the missing members past contributions to the group as a whole. With that in mind, some groups hid the absence well. But for others, its safe to say the member definitely made their mark on the group as a whole.
