Monsta X fans are gathered outside Starship Entertainment’s building in Seoul in support of Wonho.

The 26-year-old today left the K-pop group following allegations he owed former Ulzzang Shidae co-star Jung Da Eun 30 million won.

And in protest of Wonho’s decision to ‘part amicably’ with Starship and the band, Monbebe have gathered outside the agency’s headquarters.

Fans have been writing messages of support for the idol on Post-It notes and sticking them on the building’s walls, while urging fellow Monsta X fans to join them.

Other Korean fans offered to write notes for Monbebe around the world who couldn’t be in Seoul.

Meanwhile, over 70,000 people have signed a Change.org petition to reinstate Wonho in the band, with fans hoping to get it to 150,000 signatures.

Starship today confirmed that from today, Wonho will no longer partake in any of Monsta X’s activities – despite the group releasing their new album just days ago.

Following the news, Wonho himself shared a letter apologising to fans.

He wrote: ‘First, I would like to apologize for not being able to keep the promise that I would only provide good memories and for causing pain to fans.

‘Furthermore, I apologise for causing concern to many people due to my personal issues.

‘I have received undeserving blessings and love while promoting as a MONSTA X member. I sincerely thank you for making precious memories for me. To the members who worked hard with me and stayed with me, I would like to tell them that I’m thankful and that I love them. [I would also like to show them] my apologetic heart.

‘There was a time when I was immature and have made big and small mistakes, but after becoming a trainee and making my debut, I stayed on track and worked hard to avoid being ashamed of myself.’

Wonho continued: ‘I am announcing that I am leaving MONSTA X today. ‘I am apologetic for causing harm to the members due to the unfortunate issues related to me. More than anything, I am sorry for disappointing my fans, who believed in me.

‘I have reached this decision after seeing may people having a hard time because of me.

‘In addition to our members, I once again sincerely bow my head in apology to the fans who have believed in me and supported me. Please give strength to MONSTA X. The members have nothing to do with me.

‘I carefully ask that you at least give support and encouragement to the members. ‘They are people who are too good to stop and get hurt like this because of someone like me.

‘I am so thankful and apologetic to the staff, members, and lastly our fans who have allowed me to enjoy such happiness until this point.’

Starship Entertainment confirmed that Monsta X would be continuing as a six piece band with members Shownu, Minhyuk, Kihyun, Hyungwon, Joohoney and IM.
