Kaeun delivers a handwritten letter to fans after news of her departure from Pledis


Shortly after official news of her departure from her 8-year label Pledis Entertainment, Kaeun delivered a neatly handwritten letter to fans via her Instagram. 

She wrote:

"Hello. This is Kaeun. I'm greeting you for the first time in a long time. I'm not sure where to start... I'm not sure if I can fully relay all of the feelings of thankfulness and apology... This is the hardest letter I've ever had to write. 

First, I want to apologize to the fans who must be upset by the news of my contract expiration, as I am now unable to be with you on more stages. And I also want to thank you for your kind, unchanging support. The time that I spent with fans after debuting as After School's Kaeun was such a dreamlike, happy time for me. I am thankful that the people I spent such a happy time with were my members, the unnies. 

And to president Han Sung Soo and all of the Pledis staff, who allowed me a life as After School's Kaeun! Thank you for cherishing me and watching over me. I will do my best always, with a thankful heart!

From here on, I will be greeting fans as Lee Kaeun rather than After School's Kaeun, but I will not forget the times that I've spent until now. As I remain thankful for your hearts, I will work hard to meet you more often!

I will try my best to show you an even better side of me. I will become a better person. Please stay with me from here on as well. Once again, thank you and I love you.

Sincerely, Kaeun."

Best of luck to Kaeun in all of her future endeavors!

She has nothing, I repeat NOTHING to apologize for.

The fans who abandoned her on produce 48 should be apologizing to her.

Pledis should apologize to her for giving her virtually no opportunities for years.
