Hello. This is Cube Entertainment. Firstly, we bow our heads in apology for concerning you with the matter of our company artist, Seo Soojin’s controversy. We would like to inform you that it was decided that Seo Soojin will withdraw from the group effective today. In the future, (G)I-DLE will proceed to promote as a 5 member group and the company will do our best and unchangingly support the group so they are able to show a more mature sound and performance. Thank you.
