This will be a breakdown of what has happened in the past 8 months. It will be pretty long but hopefully clear up some stuff for people who keep asking. All translations belong to crowntheclowns / rowlowupdates
December 26: Rome told us his real name was Christian “I love my fans no matter what ! You guys are honestly everything to me! I am barom. But my original name is christian! Its time for me to share to u guys who i really am! And u guys mean just that much to me Ill be no where and no one without my crowns b salts! I bow 2 before u”
January 2: CTC suddenly stopped, no further explanation.
January 9: “(…)
i know we have been very quiet recently and im too worried for your concerns nevertheless we are still really happy with all the support you guys have given us and hopefully one day will return to you guys more of what we should have given to you all” - Rome (fancafe)
February 24: Last video posted on their official youtube channel. Rome looked really worn out, the other members looked really tired. Everything seemed kinda odd.
February 27: Last fancafe post, written by Maru. “Today’s ,,chat,, wasn’t any fun huh… I apologize… I am self-reflecting,, Recently, the hyungs have been nagging at me a lot more. As a result, I’ve become more timid,,”
March 2: Rome shaved off all his hair.
April 20: Rome deletes all his instagram pictures. He changed his twitter username from RoME_Cclown to neva4get_urself (he later changed this to Yu_Christian1), and his instagram username from dproyalrome to christianyu_ “When you’re about to quit, remember why you started” - The text on his new Instagram profile pic “they turned me into something that I am not. Never forget what I did for u.” - Rome’s new instagram bio
April 21: Rome twitter update “I apologize to the fans , I really do! But I tried..I really did! It’s jus too hard now ! Dw y’all”
May 15: “Thx mum for come seeing me :)” - Rome (Instagram, his mom visited him”
July 6: “I miss being on stage too…” - Rome (twitter)
Rome’s recent replies to comments on instagram: “why there’s no crown hashtag? if you already got out of cclown then say it why hold back and make us crowns worried?” “because I can’t say nothing. Or else the law will be involved ! Now I wish people would stop asking me. I said there’s a reason for everything and please it’s more harder on us then anyone honestly”
“So now you’re all about dpr? Please like take cclown out of yedang, find a good company, then you can do whatever you want.” “if it was that easy …”
“its a pity the mixed tapes you worked on…you never release them…” “company problems sorry:;;”
October 5: C-clown has now disbanded
Now if you have come this far, congratulations, you know whats been happening for the past few months. Please stop bothering Rome about this, please dont bother any of the members actually. Do not blame any of this on Rome, as he is trying his best to resolve all of this, and we have no idea what is going on behind the scenes. This seems very serious, and while we can joke around, consider the fact that this can and probably has taken a huge emotional toll on the members.
TL;DR: Rome told us his name was Christian, proceeded to cut his hair and delete all his instagram posts as well as change all his social media usernames. He has apologized to the fans several times, trying to explain as much as he can, but they are in a bad situation right now (so bad that the law will be involved if they speak out about it). Taking this all into consideration, please do not be a fucking shit and post anything about this on their social media, including asking about whats happening, as this might stress them out even more. Thank you.
Today, October 5th, 2015, kpop lost an amazing band that I was proud to call myself a fan of.
C-Clown was one of those bands that everyone liked, no matter what. It is so sad that they were so underappreciated, when it was obvious their talent knew no bounds, whether it be their amazing original songs, their on point dancing, making us laugh with their Crown the Clown series, or their beautiful stage presence, they never ceased to amaze me in every way whenever I watched one of their videos. So I just want to say thank you to C-Clown for being such a fantastic group and for making such an impact on so many fans’ lives, mine included.
Thank you Rome/Barom/Christian for being such an amazing leader and producer, I know your talents will take you so far in life.
Thank you Siwoo, for being our sweet, 4D princess, that never failed to make us smile and laugh.
Thank you Kangjun and Ray, for your beautiful voices, moving me and many other fans to tears with your soulful lyrics.
Thank you TK, for putting up with your silly bandmates and keeping them grounded.
Thank you Maru, for being our adorable maknae and keeping us all in good spirits.
It’s been a great three years for you, C-Clown, and I hope that wherever your futures take you, you will still be successful in everything that you do and continue to make your loyal Crowns happy.
please please please check out these dumb dorks they will burrow their way into your heart in seconds
