IVE’s Rei Pens Heartfelt Letter To Fans After Announcing Temporary Hiatus
IVE’s Rei has shared a handwritten letter to her fans following the announcement of her temporary hiatus.
On April 11, just one day after IVE’s comeback with their first full-length album “I’ve IVE,” Starship Entertainment announced that Rei would temporarily be halting all activities in order to focus on recovering her health.
The following day, Rei posted the following letter on IVE’s official fan cafe:
To my precious DIVEs,
DIVEs, you were really surprised after hearing the news, right?
To be honest, I worried over and over about how to write this letter, so I decided to write a handwritten letter that can convey my sincerity.
After becoming a member of IVE, I diligently raced forward hand in hand with the five best members ever, and the people who were by my side both when I was sad and when I was happy were the other [IVE] members and DIVEs.
Right now, I’m pausing for a moment to take good care of myself, and I’m slowly making efforts so that this time doesn’t become meaningless. There isn’t a single day that I’m not thinking about DIVEs and the other members. I’m always curious and want to know what you’re up to, whether you’ve eaten, and whether anything fun has happened. Because you’re all the most precious friends and family to me.
As this is our first full-length album, all of the members worked really, really hard together on preparing for it. All of my IVE members are really cool and admirable, and I hope that they can receive love from people across the entire world.
DIVEs, I miss you so, so much.
I hope that all the people I love will be happy. Also, we are all worthy of being loved, and I hope that you won’t be afraid of tomorrow. I’m going to do the same, and if by chance, there’s a moment when you’re going through a difficult time, please don’t forget that there are people by your side that love you and think of you as precious.
Let’s promise to live today to the fullest and make it a happy day.
DIVEs, I love you.
We hope Rei feels much better soon!
