The speculations arose after fans noticed Jei's absence on the list of Loen Entertainment artists found on popular portal site Naver. Out of the 22 artists under Loen Entertainment, Jei is nowhere to be found while other FIESTAR members Hyemi, Yezy, Cao Lu, and Linzy are listed.
In addition, Jei's name on her profile changed to her full name. As you can see, she is no longer listed as Jei and now named Kim Jei.
Many fans are hoping that the changes are not signs of bad news.
