he other member to be removed from iKON is controversial trainee Jung Jinhyung. One of the 9 final trainees competing on Mix & Match,Jinhyung was eventually eliminated from the group.
Speculation indicates that he was removed from YG Entertainment for dating fellow YG trainee Miyeon, who was supposed to be the 5th member of BLACKPINK.
Before their debut, BLACKPINK had 5 members. Miyeon, their 5th member, was a trainee at YG Entertainment for 5 years.
Reports indicate that Miyeon was removed from the group due to unforeseen circumstances, and Miyeon left YG Entertainment.
Although the reason for her departure are unclear, rumors indicate that she was cut from the group for dating Jung Jinhyung, a contestant on Mix & Match (the audition program that formed iKON).
Miyeon took a break from music for a few years, until she got an offer from Cube Entertainment. She has since debuted with (G)I-DLE, and BLACKPINK debuted as a 4-member group. Miyeon has revealed that the 5 original members remain close. The girls of BLACKPINK even texted Miyeon a message of congratulations when she finally debuted!
