She revealed why she has decided to leave the group, saying, “My time as April’s Somin was very precious, and I did think about my decision a lot. However, I wanted to discover and study what I can do better as Jeon So Min. After a long period of consideration, the members of April and other friends in the agency have decided to respect my choice.”
The artist also thanked the other members and fans, saying, “Please promise me you won’t be feeling down for too long. I will come back as a better person. No words can describe how I feel right now but please know that I love you guys.”
