AOA's ChoA wrote a letter to fans about her recent absence.

FNC Entertainment released an official statement explaining ChoA is taking personal time off, but it did not stop rumors saying she'll be leaving the girl group. The AOA member has now made her own post on Instagram to comfort fans.

On May 16, she wrote on Instagram:

"Hello, this is ChoA!
This is my first long break since I debuted, so that may be why many people are taking interest and expressing surprise. I'm thankful that you're still thinking of me even when I'm not appearing anywhere.
There's a controversy about my absence, but the break I'm taking was planned and discussed with the head of our label since before we filmed the music video for 'Excuse Me' in December of 2016. 
I suggested that we let you all know that I'm taking a vacation because I knew you would wait for me, but I was advised against releasing an official statement for a personal rest. The company's management team also advised that I stop using social media on my break, so I followed along though I didn't completely agree. 
I should have tried harder to persuade them for those waiting for me. I think I was too complacent. I want to sincerely apologize to those who waited for me and supported me.
It may be because I'm speaking up so late, but there are a lot of mean speculations and rumors spreading. I'm on a break that I planned in advance, and I hope no more rumors arise from this. 
Those posting baseless rumors can really hurt people. Please delete them. 
As I end this post, I'd like to again express my gratitude for those who've shown me support. I hope to recharge my energy and work hard to show a better side of myself than before. Thank you."

Hopefully, this clears up the rumors.

why would she leave the group though?

I don't blame her, personally I blame the shit-poor job that the company is doing.... Wait  for the shit to hit the wall then run around to find someone to clean up the mess.... Not a good way to run a company!! I would know I ran a company once before I sold it to another major firm for a huge profit!!

So they stopped her from going on social media but let her do this because of the backlash. whatever is it, the truth will come out eventually.

The way she doesn't mention AOA in this long letter....

I also noticed no mention of Aoa or returning to the group

Saying that you're taking a planned break means you're coming back. She could have been more clear though.

Well now she definitely has to stay with the group, because after making a statement like that she'll look really bad if she did leave.

what a dumbass company. Why would they tell her to keep her vacation a secret? you reap what you sow

LOL, even Choa throwing shade at FNC for their stupid decision in not stopping rumors from spreading, like a smarter entertainment company would have foreseen.
