Hello, this is DSP Media.
Our label artist Lee Hyunjoo will be trying out a new road not as April but as an actress. Accordingly, she has left the group and will be promoting individually.
She had taken a break due to health issues. From the support and love she got from many fans, she has recovered her health.
During her hiatus, Hyunjoo thought a long time about her career path, and she relayed her intention clearly to the label and we conferred about her career path. The label decided to honor her intention, and decided she would be an actress.
With this, we are planning to add new member(s) to the original April members, and they are preparing to release a new album early next year.
We ask for warm love to Hyunjoo, who will be an actress in our label, and April, who will be having a reorganization.
There's no saying who the new member(s) will be, but it seems likely that 'Produce 101's Yoon Chae Kyung will be joining, as she has been with the girls filling in for Hyunjoo in her absence. If DSP Media decides to add more than one member, Cho Si Yoon from 'Produce 101' is also a likely candidate.
What do you think?
