While the Kpop group April shared disbandment news, member Chaekyung revealed her feelings. On January 28, Chaekyung uploads a lengthy post on her Instagram that begins with the phrase “Hello, this is April Chaekyung.”
“In 2011, I came to Seoul alone in the third year of junior high school. Then, I entered a family-like company called DSP Media. I worked hard to fulfill my dream to be a singer, and I met a valuable group called April. Also, I was very happy to meet the members who had the same dream as mine and meet Fineapple (fandom), who was always waiting and loving us.”
“I am cautious about what to say at the moment of writing this post. But, I always sincerely thank you for your unconditional love,” Chaekyung thanked the agency, April members, and fans.
Chaekyung confided that she was able to do things that she would not have done alone thanks to the members. She added, “I am so grateful and loved by the members of April, who are my family and friends who cried and laughed together.”
Chaekyung said, “Now when I go back from April Chaekyung Yoo to just Chaekyung Yoon, I’m afraid of doing things alone. But, please support April members who will walk hard on their own paths in the future.”
Finally, Chaekyung said, “I will work hard to show you a better side of me in the future. For now, I would like to express my sincere gratitude to everyone who loved April.”
In addition, other members of the Kpop group April, Chaewon, Jinsol, and Yena also expressed their feelings to fans through social media.
Meanwhile, DSP Media said, “We and the members decided to disband the team and walk their own path after a long period of discussion.”
