Bolbbalgan4’s Jiyoon will be leaving the group
Yes, that is right! Bolbbalgan4′s Jiyoon will be leaving the duo group. Check out the details below!
It was revealed that Jiyoon will be ending her promotions as a Bolbbalgan4 member due to personal concerns about her future career. After many careful discussions, Shofar Music decided to respect Jiyoon‘s decision. Thus, Jiyoung will continue to promote under Bolbbalgan4 with no additional members. Jiyoon has also released her letter. The letter says:
“Hello, this is Jiyoon. It’s been a while since I have written a letter. Since we are in a season that allows the cold to melt away, it can be difficult to stay indoors. So, be sure to wear a mask and a think jacket outside. I feel like everyone will be sad and confused. I will treasure the moments I have spent as Bolbbalgan4 as I embark a new chapter in life. Thank you for supporting me. It was not an easy decision where I have asked myself “Am I doing well, what do I really want to do?”. I was worried countless times while discussing with the company and Jiyoung and they have decided to respect my decision. Though I won’t be continuing as part of Bolbbalgan4, I will be a fan and friend who watches over Bolbbalgan4. Thank you for the brightest times. I love you.”
Jiyoung has also released her letter. It says: “Hello, this is Jiyoung. First of all, sorry for the sudden news. For those who loved us as a duo, my heart feels heavy and sorry. I think Jiyoon has been worried about this for longer than I have imagined. We have talked about it for some time and after hearing what she had to say, I decided to respec those feelings. In the past 10 years, there has never been a time when she didn’t give it her all. Although we won’t be performing together, I want us to support each other. I will continue as Bolbbalgan4 as my own. I think that now is when I need to take more responsibility and do my part since I promised that I’d be giving you good songs. I think I put a lot of emotions into this new album. Thank you for loving us and supporting us.”
With that, we wish them all the best for the future!
