UEE to leave Pledis after her contract expiration at the end of this month.
With her exclusive contract with Pledis coming to an end this month, Uee also decides to exit from After School as well. She announced on her official fan cafe on May 31, that she will be graduating from After School and penned a handwritten letter to fans and her fellow group members.
In her letter, UEE said,
“It seems like it was just yesterday that I debuted through After School but it has already been eight years since then. My fellow members who were high schoolers at the time are now college students and my occupation has changed as well.
Over the years, ‘graduating’ [from After School] seemed like a faraway event but somehow it is now my turn.
I’m thankful to everyone at Pledis and am both thankful and apologetic to my fellow After School members. I will try my best to become a bright and hardworking UEE,”
A representative from Pledis stated, “We hope that UEE will be successful in all of her endeavors. We will continue to cheer her on.”
