Before that, CUBE announced Soojin’s departure, leaving a great deal of pain in the hearts of fans.
Recently, Shuhua, a member of (G)I-DLE, had a V-live to interact with fans. During the V-live, she was quite excited and happy. However, after a moment when she accidentally mentioned Soojin, a member who left the group because of school bullying rumors, the atmosphere of the livestream became a bit awkward.
Specifically, when Shuhua was sharing about the members’ dancing ability and she accidentally said “Soo” to Soojin before alerting herself and stopping saying for a moment.
Although it was only a fleeting moment, Shuhua’s eyes said all that needed to be said. She was instantly dumbfounded for a few seconds as if she was taking her time to think about what she had said.
After her brief hiatus, Shuhua saved the situation by saying “Soyeon” instead of Soojin.
Upon seeing the pain and panic in Shuhua’s eyes after the “accident”, netizens expressed sympathy for the (G)I-DLE members and gave her many words of encouragement.
Earlier on August 14, Cube abruptly announced Soojin’s departure from (G)I-DLE after her long hiatus because of the school bullying scandal. The company merely stated that Soojin would be departing the group and that (G)I-DLE would continue to promote with a 5-member lineup in their announcement.
