Hi. This is BlockBerryCreative.
We are releasing a statement to let fans know that we have decided that our agency artist Chuu will be expelled and retired as a member of LOONA effective November 25, 2022.
There was a lot of speculation about LOONA’s Chuu last year, but LOONA’s agency and members didn’t make any announcements so as not to cause trouble for the group’s development or upset fans.
With LOONA members’ commitment to the band and concern for their fans, instead of saying what’s true and what’s not, they tried to express their feelings, going to great lengths for performances and content.
However, after recently learning about Chuu’s brutal language and abuse of power against our staff, the truth was uncovered after an investigation. Agency representatives apologize and console the staff, and we have decided to take responsibility and remove Chuu from LOONA.
First of all, we officially apologize to the staff who were greatly affected by this incident and will do our best to ensure that they can now recover and focus on treatment and then return to their normal lives.
We apologize to the fans who have loved and supported LOONA so far, and ask for sincere forgiveness for not being able to have the 12 members together until the end.
The agency and LOONA will go back to their roots and will work as hard as possible to ensure that an incident like this never happens again in the future, no matter what. The members of LOONA didn’t just work for their individual gains and they know what the fans gave them to get them to this point, so they didn’t do anything to get the band into trouble. They will make it to the end and repay the love from all who support LOONA.
In addition, the agency and members of LOONA will show respect and gratitude to all employees who work with us. The agency will do everything possible to repay the dedication and dedication of the staff so that something like this never happens again. Once again, we bow our heads in apology to the staff and fans involved for causing trouble with this incident.
