Haiz... All the best to Jang Gyuri. It is not easy leaving behind people or things to pursue what they want to, so it is a good thing that she has identified what is more important to her and go for it. Her moments with Hayoung in the group's videos are always a highlight to me, her impressive low-notes in their songs... Oh well, all the best!
