CLC's Elkie Shares Letter Thanking Fans And Members As She Talks About Her Experiences And Hopes For The Future

CLC’s Elkie has written a letter to her fans and members, expressing her feelings and talking about her future.

On December 30, Elkie posted on Instagram with versions of the letter in Chinese, English, and Korean, addressed to CLC’s fans Cheshire. Her letter in English is as follows:

To my dearest Cheshire,

I have some true words from deep and I would really appreciate if you take time to read it over.

It’s been almost six years. Started from audition, debut, and finally got the chance to meet you all and become close to each other. Until now, our love is very powerful and very precious. All the time, every event, every performance, every album… you have inspired and encouraged me a lot. It gives me the strength to keep going.

Not only that, but occasionally when I feel down, your warm messages, comments, and letters have got me through those tough time[s].

There’s one time I felt down and I travelled to a foreign country on my own. On my way back I wrote a very emotional message. And when I read through all the messages and comments, I could hardly hold back my tears at the boarding gate. I was so touched.

There were many more [of] this kind of moments that I will NEVER forget.

From all the moments we had together, you probably know my personality. I have always hope to bring happiness, to show you all aspects, and I also hope you can gain strength from it.

However, it’s sad that many times I couldn’t do what I wanted to do. I have encountered many obstacles along the way but it is what it is, sadly I couldn’t show you more and give you all I have. This made me feel so bad… and when I think of you who have been always supporting me, makes me feel even more disappointed and depressed.

As of now, I feel that I haven’t been a successful artiste, at least I am not very satisfied with what I have done for you.

That’s why I realized that I can’t let it be anymore. I want to do more for my loved ones, and I would like to show you all I have.

In the last five years, I had lots of precious moments and great experiences. I’m looking forward to putting some of this learning into practice. Do what I want to do, do what I can do, and accomplish a longer journey. I would like to invite you to join me in this journey and I hope we can both gain strength from it.

Thank you for always being there for me and hope I can keep your smile on. I will keep working hard as always and I have never forgotten my intention. I am grateful for your support, let’s keep going together in the future.

I am so optimistic about the adventures to come!

With you, I have nothing to fear for. Because you are the reason of my happiness.

Especially thanks to my members who are just like my family! Thank you for your love and support. Remember our promise, even when we become older, we will still gather together to sing and dance. I’m looking forward to hearing good news from all of you! Love you so much!

According to TopStarNews, a letter was posted on December 25 on Weibo in which Elkie reportedly gave notification to Cube Entertainment through a law firm located in Beijing regarding the termination of her contract.

It reportedly stated that after Elkie signed a contract with Cube in February 2016 and joined CLC, she actively took part in promotions. The letter is said to describe that the company violated terms including regarding payment of her earnings, as well as the agency not providing support for CLC’s activities following the company’s structural changes while also not giving a plan for Elkie’s activities. The letter went on to state that if the agency does not accept the termination, legal channels will be taken to protect the artist’s rights and interests. TopStarNews notes that some people have doubts about the authenticity of the letter, while the outlet also mentions that Elkie has changed the part of her Weibo profile that said “CLC.”

Cube Entertainment has not yet issued a response to the report or addressed Elkie’s letter from December 30.
