"Hello, this is Jung Yoo Mi.
I'm leaving this message to personally write to those who were shocked by the news today and those are cheering me on.
I've carefully started a sincere relationship recently with someone who was a good friend and sunbae.
I thought about it carefully and opened my heart, so I thought it was right that I tell you my thoughts personally.
Apart from my projects, I was careful and I worried about revealing my personal love life, but I don't want to deny what I decided and chose to do. On the other hand, starting a public relationship is difficult and scary for me, but I'm looking forward to the idea that it may lead to better things.
I want to let you know what I have a lot of gratitude for those who are always supporting me. I sincerely thank you always.
I hope that my precious people will all have a day without pain when they can laugh."
