On February 26, Minhee reached out to fans via Instagram and shared about the girl group's end. She stated, "It's been 7 years since I made my debut in Stellar. I used to think this moment was far away in the future but time has gone by so fast. The moments with Twinkle will be an unforgettable memory."
She continued, "We, Stellar, plan to walk our own paths. I'll show a good side of me, not as Stellar's Minhee but as Joo Min Hee so please give great support. Our members and Twinkle, who were a great strength to me, thank you so much. It was happiness. I'll preciously keep the unforgettable warm love. I love you Twinkle."
