On December 15, TAHITI’s Miso took to her personal Instagram account to open up about Jisoo’s departure and she began by stating, “Only a few days before our scheduled Japanese concert, you suddenly became unreachable without a warning. You wouldn’t take anyone’s calls and though we had no idea what was going on, we gave up sleep to change our choreography to fit four people till the day we flew out in order to keep our promise with our fans. For months, we had no way of hearing any detailed news about you. No matter how much we tried calling first, the only response we’d get is that you’d return someday and for us to wait a little longer. You even left our group chat without a single explanation. Our agency foolishly told us that even though things were hard for us, we should stick it out a little longer because you were sick and hospitalized.”
She continued on with, “They said you were hospitalized but we keep hearing so many stories of people seeing you out and about. How are we supposed to respond to this? Should we have just trusted you and waited for you because you were one a member of our group, someone we trusted? If you really wanted to leave TAHITI and leave this company, you should have just paid the penalty for breaching your contract and left.”
Miso added, “You dare use the term ‘panic disorder’ after spending years by the side of someone who can’t go a day without medication because her depression and panic disorder cause her to hyperventilate? Your time [as a member of TAHITI] was horrible? Your fake lies are more horrible. I just feel so bad for the people, our innocent fans, who comfort you without knowing what’s going on that I feel the need to apologize to them. We [TAHITI members] and our agency family, we were all sticking together because of loyalty, and we never dreamed that you had planned this all from the very beginning.. and we trusted you… Just a few days ago, we were fools waiting for Jisoo to return to TAHITI.”
She concluded her statement with, “The one social media post she made and the reporters are the people who made ‘Jisoo leave TAHITI’ a reality. Do you finally understand who the people in pain really are, and who should really be the ones being comforted?”
Jisoo declared her intention to leave the group on December 8 through a post on her personal Instagram account.
