Joo Chan Yang
The reason why the loss of 15kg for Joo ChanYang has gained much interests is due to ‘Superstar K’ winner Seo InKook. Seo InKook was recently known to have also lost 15kg for his new album. And Joo ChanYang and Seo Inkook were both strong opponents during ‘SuperStar K’.
Joo ChanYang is known to have great capabilities after training for about 7 years since he was in middle school 3rd year. He has also participated in the chorus recording for hits by idols like 2PM, 2AM and TaeGoon.

Park Yunhwa leaving T-Max's article.(Finally,I found the article,azra!!)
Park Yoon-hwa of the group T-MAX personally left a message on the group's official fan cafe site yesterday afternoon, April 5th. After first debuting in 2007 with the single "Blooming", Park has announced his departure from the group that has released hit songs such as "I Love You" ("널 사랑해''), "Why'd You Do That?" ("왜 그랬어"), and "Paradise".
On his posting, Park wrote, "I won't be able to take part in T-MAX's albums. It's not so much of a personal issue...Rather, as you all know, I simply have to answer to the call of my country. I have some personal things I need to attend to which has forced me to say good-bye a bit earlier than expected."
He added, "I'm sorry that I'm leaving despite having worked so hard to prepare for this and before showing you all that I feel I'm capable of. I put a lot of thought into this decision so I ask for your understanding. Although I will not longer be a part of the group, I do ask for your love and support for them. I do hope to return and surprise everyone as a better artist onstage one day. Thank you so much for all of your love and support!"
A T-MAX representative said that due to Park having to serve his mandatory military call, he decided that leaving the group was the best decision for both sides. T-MAX plans on recruiting an additional member to the remaining trio (Kim Joon, Shin Min-chul, and Park Han-bi) to continue their activities. Their newest album is slated for release this May.
As of January 4th, 2012,
It has been reported by T-MAX and their company Planet 905 Company, that T-Max will disband as a group to pursue individual careers. Shin Minchul and Joo Chanyang will carry on the path as singers, whereas Kim Joon, Park Hanbi, and Yunhwa will pursue acting careers.
CEO Yoon Jung Soo expressed, “They’re a group like real brothers to me and I truly did all I could for them so I wanted to take in whatever decision they chose. I told them that they could return as T-Max whenever they wanted to.”
Awh, its so sad when another well-known groups disbands, but fans will always be there to support these talented individuals. We hope that each member will find their niche in the industry and prosper! Good luck guys!
