Update: MOMOLAND’s Yeonwoo Apologizes For Worrying Fans + Clarifies Rumors About Her Departure From Group
Updated June 29 KST:
MOMOLAND’s Yeonwoo recently posted an explanation on the group’s fan cafe following rumors of her departure from the group.
Read her full post below:
Merry’s [the nickname for MOMOLAND’s official fan club], you were all surprised by those sudden rumors, right? I was surprised too, but I thought that Merry’s would be shocked and hurt, so that’s why I’m writing this post.
There was an article a while ago about me being in talks for a drama, but you were all worried because I wasn’t very active since then, huh? I couldn’t talk about my schedule so recklessly, so I was silently making preparations in order to show a good image of myself. As that time grew longer, however, I think that created a great misunderstanding to Merry’s and the public.
The social media posts I’d share to update you all [on my life], and the ones you’re all curious about, are pictures I took from when I’d occasionally visit my friends who appeared in plays or musicals. As for my friend’s birthday party, I had notified my agency but I wasn’t feeling well that day, so I sat with my manager and left after giving [the friend] their present.
I’m sure everyone was incredibly worried, but until now, and in the present, and far far into the future, I’ll remain as a precious member of MOMOLAND. I’m currently staying physically fit and practicing hard in order to meet Merry’s in a healthy, stable condition, so please wait just a little bit longer.
MLD Entertainment has denied rumors of MOMOLAND’s Yeonwoo leaving the group.
On June 29, a source from MLD Entertainment stated, “The rumors of MOMOLAND’s Yeonwoo leaving the group are completely untrue. The reason why Yeonwoo has not been participating in recent schedules is because she is filming her drama. With regards to the performance in Chile on June 28, Yeonwoo did not participate due to health reasons, as stated in a previous notice.”
Rumors began spreading from a post shared on an online community. The post based the allegations on the points that Yeonwoo has not been participating in MOMOLAND’s activities for the past month, while it appeared as though she had attended a friend’s birthday party. They also claimed that Yeonwoo had deleted all of her posts except one on MOMOLAND’s official fan cafe.
MOMOLAND is currently on tour holding concerts, and shared photos earlier today meeting with American singer-songwriter Lauv in Mexico.
