I’m very sad, but I’ll show you a better side of myself in the future. I’ll work hard as an actress from now on. Thank you so much. I wanted to end it with a smile, but I’m so overwhelmed, my tears came out. I won’t be able to stand on stage with my members anymore, but if a good opportunity arises, I hope we get together.”
Member Nana consoled her, saying, “We won’t be apart forever, so don’t be too sad,”while Jung Ah said, “It’s been 7 years since I met Jooyeon since the trainee days. I trust that she’ll succeed as an actress, and I’ll support her quietly from afar.”
