“Hello, this is Minzy.
It is with a sincere heart that I write to you all.
First, I would like to apologize to all those who expressed shock at the news of my departure.
It is after careful consideration and much deliberation that I have decided to pursue a new journey as an artist named Minzy Kong.
Ever since debuting with 2NE1 at the young age of 16, I have been grateful for the wonderful memories I shared with incredible fans worldwide. These experiences were undeniably precious and I take none of them for granted. Thank you all for helping me grow as an artist.
I promise to work even harder to return before you all with an improved and more honest version of myself.
Through a renewed vision and hard work, I hope to reciprocate the love, dedication, and support that you have shown me.
Thank you to all the fans, family, and friends who have shown me their love and concern.
I promise to return soon.
What are you hoping she will do in the future?
