What does the label say more? What did he say about the entire scenario? Is he happy parting ways with ASTRO or not? Scroll down further to know more about it.
Rocky Leaves Boy Band ASTRO
The words “deep discussion” proposed that Rocky was not too happy to leave but that he had to because his contract had expired.
His label Fantagio Entertainment further said, “We thank Rocky for doing his best for a long time as a member of ASTRO, and we will sincerely support him in the future.” Text translated from Korean.
Fantagio Entertainment further requests AROHA, fans of boy band ASTRA, to continue to give their support to Rocky as the dancer-singer begins his new journey.
He also went all the way to ASTRO’s fan cafe where he wrote a letter thanking the band members and even the fans for their continued support.
In his handwritten letter, He wrote, “The time I spent as ASTRO was very precious to me.” It has to be probably the most rewarding times of his life as the 28 year old achieved plenty of fame and made plenty of memories at the same time.
Rocky also progressed in terms of dancing and singing skills. He grew an enormous fan following that was unparalleled.

The other four members of the boy band jinjin, Cha Eun Woo, Moonbinand Sanha renewed their membership with the label Fantagio Entertainment.
The fifth member of MJ is currently serving in the army under the permanent government of South Korea that all men must serve in the army. But the great news is that after the end of his service period, he will also renew his membership.
Hope Rocky finds much bigger opportunities in the future in his life.
