I know some people are frustrated that she felt the need to leave, but we know this can be incredibly common for people who have not only been in the industry, but also with the same company. Sure, some people stay on as we've seen with recent contract renewals. However, it's long been known by Miracles that Jiho had been struggling with her health to keep up with group activities, sustaining multiple injuries and becoming ill during their latter comebacks and even before that. Furthermore, WM isn't really known for their actors, just their singers. Of course some of their artists have had acting opportunities, but most of that occurred due to their individual popularity. I'm sure they gave their blessings since despite making her the center/visual of the group, these opportunities weren't really pushed her way. I think it takes good management to know your strengths as well as your shortcomings. WM isn't a new company, but they certainly aren't a larger one either, so they were limited in their capacity in my opinion to help push Jiho forward. I wish her and the ladies of OMG well in all their future endeavors, but this really was for the best.
