Heo Chan of Victon will leave the band, announced agency IST Entertainment on Tuesday.

After careful discussion with all members, they have collectively that he leave and reorganize the team into a six-member act, said the company.

Heo was caught driving under the influence last month and came under police investigation. He suspended all activities and issued an apology with a handwritten letter.

Victon is scheduled to host concerts next this weekend. Episodes from the web drama “Pro, Teen,” Heo’s first attempt at acting, featuring the idol were pulled down from public viewings.

Some pointed out that Heo’s contract with the agency was not terminated. The bandmates debuted in November 2016 and their contracts are valid for seven years. – The Korea Herald/Asia News Network
