The idol actor group 5urprise will be leaving entertainment company Fantagio.

5urprise is the first ever actor group created by an agency, and consists of Seo Kang Joon, Gong Myung, Kang Tae Oh, Lee Tae Hwan and Yoo Il. The members' contracts ended on March 31 and after discussions with the actors, it was decided to go their separate ways.

Fantagio issued a statement confirming the news and wishing for fans to continue showing love and support for the actors in the future.

The group appeared together in a few programs, including the first season of Netflix's Busted, but the actors have primarily worked solo.

Gong Myung recently appeared in K-drama Be Melodramatic, while Kang Tae Oh was in My First First Love and The Tale of Nokdu in 2019. Lee Taehwan is starring in new K-drama Touch in 2020.
