Melody Day Members Announce Disbandment Through Heartfelt Letters To Fans
The members of Melody Day have decided to part ways after four years of working together.
On December 26, Melody Day’s Yeoeun and Yoomin each took to Instagram and announced the group’s disbandment in letters to their fans.
Yeoeun wrote, “Are you having a great end-of-year? I’m filled with regret to deliver such an unfortunate news at such happy times.
“I’m leaving my company where I spent the last 10 years. It looks like I will not be able to greet you guys again under the name ‘Melody Day’ from now on. Since I spent such a long time with the company and members, it was definitely not an easy decision to make. However, we ultimately came to an agreement because we only wish the best for each other.
“I feel the most apologetic to our fans who have always just been waiting. To pay back all the love you have given me, I will continue to move forward and show you an improved and better self. Please continue to show support for me and the rest of Melody Day members, Yein, Chahee, and Yoomin!
“LOEN Entertainment, who helped me to achieve a life-long dream of mine to become a singer, every staff member at Cra.Ker Entertainment who worked to make Melody Day happen, fans who have loved Melody Day and Melody Day’s music, as well as our members who walked the journey with me. I thank you, I love you, and I’m sorry.”
She concluded, “I will work hard to bring you good news next year. I hope you conclude this year with happiness and please take care of your health.”
Yoomin said, “It’s been a while since I’ve written you a letter. Many of you must have been wondering about the future plans and whereabouts of Melody Day. It took me a while to get back to you, but I hope you understand the delayed response.”
“The four members (Yeoeun, Yoomin, Yein, Chahee), after a long and thorough discussion, have decided to conclude our contract with Cra.Ker Entertainment in December 2018 and walk separate paths.
“I thank all fans who continued to show support with undeserving love during the last four years I promoted as Melody Day’s Yoomin. I will continue to work hard and prepare myself to greet you with a new side of me, so please continue to send me your encouraging words. Have a great end of year and always be happy.”
Melody Day made their debut in 2014 with single “Another Parting.” They most recently made a comeback with “Restless” on June 29, 2018. Three of the members (Yeoeun, Yoomin, and Chahee) gained recognition from the public when they appeared as the contestants on KBS’s idol rebooting show “The Unit,” where Yeoeun and Chahee made it to the final round.
The group was well known for their vocal talents, which often led to lending their voices to drama OSTs. Yeoeun was even crowned as a champion on “The King of Mask Singer” in 2015 and released her latest OST for KBS’s drama “Mysterious Personal Shopper” on June 21.
