NCT and WayV member, Lucas, has been on a hiatus since August 2021 after his scandal with fans surrounding his personal life. Lucas was accused by three fans for cheating on them while they were in relationships, using them, and more. After almost two years, SM Entertainment gave an update on Lucas’ hiatus. On May 10, SM Entertainment announced Lucas and the company made a mutual decision for him to leave NCT and WayV. Lucas would continue promoting as a solo artist.
Shortly after, Lucas uploaded his personal statement on Instagram. Based on his message, it was Lucas’ decision to leave both groups.
Back in February, Lucas posted a video of him practicing, which led to fans think he was gearing up for a comeback with his respective groups.
