First of all, we would like to give our thanks to all the fans that gave their love to PRISTIN. 

We are giving an official notice of PRISTIN's disbandment and the contract termination of some of the members. 

The company and the members had in-depth discussions before coming to a mutual agreement. It was decided that all the members of PRISTIN (aside from Kyulkyung, Yehana, and Sungyeon), have decided not to renew their contracts, as of May 24th.

We give our apologies to the fans who have always supported PRISTIN for the unfortunate news. 

The decision was made after careful consideration. We decided to respect the wishes of PRISTIN and disbanded the group as well as terminated the members' contracts. 

Members Kyulkyung, Yehana, and Sungyeon expressed they wished to stay with the label. We'll actively support Kyulkyung, Yehana, and Sungyeon during their individual careers, so that they can be more active in various activities. 

As for the PRISTIN members who will leave our agency, we express our deep gratitude to them and will give our support on their new paths. 

This important matter was held with a lot of careful thought and we sincerely apologize to their fans for the late delivery of the news and causing worry. We request fans to show unchanging support for the leaving members and for Kyulkyung, Yehana, and Sungyeon. 

Thank you."

Hello, this is Park Siyeon. 

First of all, I'm sorry for writing to you with bad news. 

I was able to spend my time happily thanks to HIGHs because you've always given me love continuously for the past 11 years I was with PLEDIS Entertainment and for the 2 years I was with PRISTIN. Thank you. 

Though this is the end of PRISTIN, I'll work hard in the future as Park Siyeon to make up for all the love you've given me. I hope that you'll watch over and support the new beginning of my members together with me. 

I'm sorry and grateful to everyone who gave their love and patience for PRISTIN."

안녕하세요 박시연입니다. 먼저 안 좋은 소식으로 인사드리게 되어 죄송합니다. 플레디스에서의 11년과 프리스틴으로서의 2년 동안 한결같이 사랑해주신 하이 분들 덕분에 정말 행복한 날들을 보낼 수 있었습니다. 감사합니다 프리스틴으로서의 활동은 여기서 끝이지만, 앞으로 박시연으로서 여러분들에게 받은 사랑 보답할 수 있도록 노력하겠습니다. 오랜 시간 동안 함께했던 우리 멤버들의 새로운 시작도 함께 지켜봐 주시고 응원해주셨으면 좋겠습니다. 이때까지 프리스틴을 사랑해주시고 기다려주신 모든 분들께 너무 죄송하고 감사합니다.

"Dear HIghs, 

I am so devastated that I have to be uploading this post and I know that so many of you have a million questions. For now, I just want to say I am so sorry and also incredibly grateful to all of you who have supported us from the beginning from when we were Pledis Girlz to now. 

While Pristin has officially disbanded, I would like to ask you all not to be upset and angry, but rather joyous of the memories that we've had together and all of the amazing things we have accomplished. 

Moving forward, I hope you all will find it in your hears to support me as Kyla Massie instead of PRISTIN Kyla. I had been with Pledis for approximately 9 years now and I am very lucky to have had this amazing experience and to have had such a wonderful second family. Thank you. It has been a rollercoaster ride the past 2 years and I couldn't be more grateful to all of the people who have supported us over this time. Thank you so much. I love you with all of my heart."
