Today is a sad day for Stays, as Woojin announces his departure from JYP Entertainment, and by extension Stray Kids, due to personal reasons.

According to the statement released by JYP Entertainment, the artist cited personal reasons behind his departure from the entertainment company. The agency noted that the group is currently regrouping and planning ways to make their comeback as an eight-piece group; and apologized for any inconvenience.

JYP Entertainment also announced the postponement of their upcoming mini-album, CléLevanter. Instead of its initial release date of November 25, CléLevanter will now be released on December 9. Despite this, the agency asks Stays to show support for this upcoming release.

Following the news, Stays took to Twitter to express their heartbreak over his departure and their gratitude for Woojin through the tag #ThankYouWOOJIN.

Kim Woojin debuted alongside fellow members Bang Chan, Lee Know, Changbin, Hyunjin, Han, Felix, Seungmin, and I.N as Stray Kids in 2018, where he was one of the main vocalists of the group.
