On June 30, a source gave an update on ChoA’s status as an AOA member.
The source confirmed that after discussions it was decided that ChoA will leave AOA.
FNC Entertainment confirmed the news in their official statement.
“We have decided to respect Choa’s opinion and she will be leaving AOA… The members will greet fans through individual activities through a variety of fields. We ask for fans’ love and support.”
A source from FNC Entertainment confirmed that the artist will not be cancelling her scheduled fan signing event clothing brand Ellesse on July 1.
Choa previously informed fans that she was leaving AOA on June 22, citing depression and insomnia. However, FNC denied that the decision had been made and discussions were ongoing. Later, Choa also denied that she was leaving the group because of love or marriage.
AOA’s fandom Elvis are deeply in mourning. The iconic blonde main vocal will be sorely missed. We wish both ChoA and AOA the best of luck.
