To be honest, I can’t show you as many things as before, but my life is still going on and I will continue making music and living a faithful life. I want to let everyone listen to my honest feelings contained in the songs together”, adding “‘Solo singer’ Ji Min may not look as fancy and beautiful as ‘girl group member’ Ji Min, but I think I can be a little more honest with you now. I will make music with sincerity”,
Lastly, she delivered a message to fans, saying “I’m very excited to meet fans after a long time. I’m grateful to them and I want to tell them that they’re the reason I can be here right now”, adding “I will repay your love. I love you let’s see each other for a long time.”
