The group, which originally started with 6 members, lost 3 of its members between January and March of this year. As a result, Siyoon, Seungjun, and Taehyuk were joined by Sungwon and Minhyuk to form the new group. Additionally, the group was also taken in by a new agency, New Planet Entertainment.
As for the group name, the reason for the change is because there is a copyright on the name “TAKEN”, so they asked fans to rename the group and their final choice was A-PRINCE. The group left the following message on their facebook page:
TAKEN is gone, but it’s a new start of members, A-PRINCE.
A-PRINCE and NEW PLANET still love you and thank you.
A-PRINCE, it’s created by your love and attention and beautiful mind.
A-PRINCE will be returning this summer with a new release in July.
I think the name is cute. Although…now they’re going to have to change the name of their facebook page…hehe. What do you think of their new name?
