Update 2:
Mnet's "M Countdown" is discussing whether to let MONSTA X's broadcast appearance air.
On October 31st, a Mnet "M Countdown" official told Newsen that they are discussing whether to air MONSTA X's pre-recorded stage performance.
Earlier in the day, "M Countdown" said MONSTA X will make a comeback by releasing the first stage of the title track "FOLLOW" from its new album, "FOLLOW: FIND YOU," and for the first time, "MIRROR," which was released to fans on the last world tour as a sub-unit song.
The group MONSTA X also postponed its scheduled fan signing event due to member Wonho's departure.
MONSTA X's management agency Starship Entertainment said on its official fan cafe on Oct. 31 that the fan signing event to mark the release of MONSTA X's mini album "FOLLOW: FIND YOU" was postponed, which was scheduled to run on Oct. 31.
"I will notify you of the changed schedule as soon as it is finalized. We sincerely apologize to the fans who waited for it," they added.
This comes after MONSTA X's management agency Starship Entertainment said that after discussing with Wonho, he decided today to leave the group because of his opinion that he no longer wanted to harm the group. Wonho will no longer promote with MONSTA X from today. Starship Entertainment will however take legal action against malicious comments and rumors online.
MONSTA X will continue as a six-membered group.

Han Seohee might be a nuisance but she sure is scary. First B.I and now Wonho. Idols who got involved with her or her friends must be so nervous now.

Does this mean everything that Han Seo Hee and Jung Da Eun said about him were true? Starship wouldn't just let him leave considering they are in the middle of their promos and their basically 2nd to BTS in terms of western progress.
