Friday, May 14


As the news broke that 1-2 members would be leaving Invincible Youth earlier this week, there were mounting speculation among fans that SNSD’s Yuri, Sunny and Hyuna from 4minute were the likely ones to be leaving the show.

And it looks like they were right.

A production staff confirmed the news on the 14th, “Yuri and Sunny will be leaving the show in June. The reasons being that they are entering the Japanese market and the need to also prepare for their Asia concert tour.”

He added, “We are still currently auditioning among girl group members to take over their spots in the show.” As for the newest speculation among fans that 4minute’s Hyuna would be leaving too, he said, “There’s no truth in that.”

In a separate news report, PD Kim Ho Sang refused to acknowledge the claims made by the staff and said nothing was confirmed as yet.

They only recently celebrated Kim Tae Woo’s birthday. So sad it’s breaking up.

UPDATES: Hyunah leaving the cast too?

However, it looks like the fans got it right as PD Kim finally couldn’t keep it under wraps anymore as he revealed officially on the evening of May 14th that Yuri, Sunny and Hyuna will indeed be leaving Invincible Youth soon.

PD Kim expressed, “Yuri, Sunny and Hyuna will be leaving the show due to their upcoming overseas activities. Their final recording will take place next week on the 19th and the broadcast date will be in early June.”

He added, “Auditions are currently still ongoing among girl group members and we didn’t want to reveal this (departure) before it was confirmed.

But there was too much speculation going around so we had to release this news first. We will inform once we confirm the new girls.” Fans are already speculating that f(x) might be contributing 1 – 2 members as replacements for their unnies.

With 3 members out, we are now left with Narsha, Hyomin, Hara, Sunhwa from the original G7 and the MC team of Commissioner Noh, Kim Shin Young and Kim Tae Woo. The show’s concept will remain but the dynamics will no doubt be affected.

UPDATES: SM Spreads Hope Amongst Invincible Youth Fans

Whilst rumors were laid to rest after official confirmation by the KBS Invincible Youth team that SNSD’s Sunny, Yuri and 4minute’s HyunA would be leaving the show, SM Entertainment has announced that that is not the case.

A representative of SNSD’s company, SM Entertainment, has commented, “We haven’t heard a definite answer from their production staff on Sunny and Yuri’s resignation and involvement on Invincible Youth,” confirming that their exit from the show is currently in limbo.

The staff from Invincible Youth gave similar answers, saying, “We can’t give a definite answer on Sunny and Yuri’s involvement, nor can we do that for any other current member of Invincible Youth. It may be our call, but we haven’t made a decision as of yet.”

The Invincible Youth staff had mentioned earlier that, ”We’re currently trying to add one or two new members to the show in order to give it a new feel from the current format of Invincible Youth. We are trying to change the format, but we’re not creating a Season 2. While maintaining the current concept, we’ll reorganize the show by adding new members.”

Although both SM and the production crew denied it, there’s a very high chance of Sunny, Yuri, and HyunA leaving the show in order to promote their own respective groups throughout Asia.
