"I am not going on 'Produce.' There are many who think I'm going on the 'Produce' series this time or curious (about my participation). There are also some who are preparing things because they think I'm going on 'Produce.' I went live because I wanted to tell you guys before it's too late. I miss you. I'm always grateful and also sorry."
