Update (July 22, 9:30pm EDT) A Woollim Entertainment spokesperson says of Daeryong and Soryong’s plans to relaunch as DLXL, “We are shocked and dumbfounded.”
(July 22, 10am EDT) Just last week they unexpectedly left Korea and their management at Woollim Entertainment, but that hasn’t stopped Tasty twins Daeryong and Soryong from pushing ahead with comeback plans in China.
As Woollim technically own the name Tasty, the 27-year-old brothers have renamed themselves DLXL to avoid any legal troubles and last night, July 21, announced via their Weibo page that they will be releasing a new single on July 26.
The pair included new artistic photos of themselves, looking more mature than when they were releasing K-pop songs, alongside the note, “Single Coming Soon.”
On July 15 the identical twins announced that after eight years they would be ending their activities in Korea, explaining, “There were many things we could not negotiate with our agency and this is a decision we have arrived at after long and careful consideration.”

When asked for comment, Woollim Entertainment responded to their client’s post with major shock and surprise, explaining, “As Tasty’s agency we became aware of their decision to terminate their activities in Korea from their message on Weibo.” They have yet to further comment.
