Article: [Exclusive] Zico leaves Block B... 'solo comeback' in 2019

1. [+494, -20] It's better for Zico to go solo

2. [+426, -24] Honestly, there's no reason for him to stay

3. [+257, -24] It's like AOA missing Seolhyun

4. [+39, -18] I actually think staying would be better for him longterm. G-Dragon does just fine solo but he stays in Big Bang, Zico should look into keeping Block B and helping them grow too. Does he not think highly of the other members? He thinks he's better off making more money on his own now that he's famous?

5. [+36, -13] It's not really Block B anymore without Zico

6. [+35, -0] I like Block B songs ㅠㅠ but reality is, it's completely within his rights to go solo...

7. [+34, -3] The problem is, has Zico ever carried Block B? ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ His solos are the only ones that haev ever been successful, he's been pretty lax with their group promos. You can't compare him to GD and Big Bang at all, just not at the same level.

8. [+33, -2] He's too big for his group now

9. [+27, -6] Does Block B even have a popular hit song?

10. [+25, -4] He's done enough, he put food on the table for them

1. [+287, -19] Yes, Zico had a big presence, but it's not like the other members didn't. They've been together for a long time since before debut so I hope it's a win win for both Zico and the remaining members.

2. [+197, -19] Park Kyung and PO are popular enough where the group will be fine without Zico

3. [+176, -4] Never realized how many members Block B had

4. [+14, -2] The other members are talented too but Zico was the one who practically produced most of their work so.. I think they'll be fine if they can come out with good songs

5. [+14, -6] Curious to see how the group will be without Zico, fighting!!!

6. [+11, -2] It's not like Zico was the only talented member in Block B. They're all good on stage, there's no problem really.

7. [+10, -1] With Zico gone, they all really need to stick together

8. [+7, -2] I don't think the damage of missing Zico will be too big anymore, the members are individually so unique

9. [+4, -0] Have all the people who are saying it's okay seen what happened to the other groups without their ace member? They're barely surviving~~

10. [+3, -1] I guess that's why PO's getting so much promotion lately..

1. [+948, -27] Well, he tried

2. [+774, -25] Well, I'll admit that the members stood out on their own than they did as a group... Before, the group felt more like it was just Zico alone, but now Park Kyung and PO are doing well on their own too. I guess one bad thing is that Park Kyung's music production style doesn't really match Block B.

3. [+693, -41] Zico hard carried for as long as he could, he deserves his solo

4. [+265, -18] Zico has become so successful that he can set up his own agency if he wanted to. He worked hard.

5. [+79, -1] I can see why PO jumped to doing variety work ㅋㅋㅋ it's a realistic decision

6. [+77, -4] I personally wish Taeil would get more famous too. He's a great vocal with a lot of skills.

7. [+52, -4] PO made the best decision. Block B doesn't really have a place anymore so PO went straight to doing drama and now variety and has created his own career path. Even if Block B disbanded, a few of the members are making enough on their own now.

8. [+41, -4] I think he's been loyal enough if he stayed for 6 years. He worked hard.
