We would like to apologize to all LABOUM fans for relaying a piece of sudden news while giving huge support to the group. After we confirmed the previous news regarding what happened with Yulhee, we decided to take action and she has been confirmed to leave the group based on her own request. After having discussed this between Yulhee and the agency, she will no longer work in the entertainment industry and we will respect her decision. The contract will be terminated, and again, we apologize to everyone who keeps supporting LABOUM. We promise to work on the group even and after Yulhee’s departure and make sure these talented girls in LABOUM receive more appreciation in the future.”
After the explanation from NH Media, Yulhee also had a chance to write a letter to her fans regarding the news about her departure from LABOUM. Here is the letter of Yulhee as it has been published from Allkpop:
“Everyone! Hello, this is Yulhee.
The weather’s getting colder these days, so please dress warm and be careful about colds. You were all probably surprised by the sudden news, but aside from my apologetic feelings, I’m writing this letter because I wanted to say something to our fans.
I’m very thankful for the past 3 years that I’ve spent as a member of LABOUM. I’ve made many precious memories with the fans and members. I laughed and I cried a lot during these past years, and I spent a lot of happy days wondering if I deserved so much love.
However, there was also a time that I went through a lot of emotional hardships, and I asked myself numerous questions and worried about my future. During that long period of time, I talked about my concerns with the other members and people at the agency, and they’ve decided to respect my decision. I’m announcing with an apologetic heart that today is my last day as Yulhee of LABOUM.
Many of you were probably surprised by the sudden news, and I’m so sorry for disappointing fans when they’ve given me so much love. I’m sad I can’t keep my promise to stay by your side, but looking back, I realized there have been so many moments that I won’t forget. It must’ve been so difficult and painful for my fellow LABOUM members to accept my decision, so I feel very thankful and apologetic to them as well. I’ll always support them.
It’s my last moment as LABOUM’s Yulhee, and I ask that you keep supporting my fellow members. I also hope you support my future as Kim Yulhee. To the fans, members, and Global H Media employees, thank you for the precious memories and experiences.
Finally, thank you to all those who loved and supported me. I won’t forget you.
Written by Yulhee.”
