Seungyeon wrote a letter to her fans after she left KARA due to the group’s official disbandment and now signing with J,WIDE Company. Seungyeon seems to have been very busy with the sudden change in her career, and she’s been trying to find a balance with the new direction that her life has suddenly taken.
Seungyeon’s note read:
"Everyone, it's been a while. It's Seungyeon. I've been wondering how I should say this, writing and erasing, and I've decided to tell you how I've been doing ever since I made a choice about my agency. I'm sorry I'm late.
I joined DSP Media when I was 19, and it's quite awkward, hard, and scary now that I've left. I'm sure you feel the same. I debuted at 20, and along with my members, I received a lot of love from fans, and we took care of each other's hurts the past 9 years. The memories we've had together are really precious in my life.
Now, I'm trying to make pretty memories and experiences with you fans under a new agency. We haven't broken apart, turned on each other, or separated before. I trust that we know you all more than anybody.
I'm always sorry that you're hurt by what the world says, but I'll try to be happy with you now. I'll meet you all more often, and I'll think about trying out different things to show you all. Even in this moment, I thank the members, team, and all of you who've worried with us. It was a very peaceful 9 years. And with our fan's love... I think that we've gone well until now. Like we have until now, I want to walk with you all with nothing going wrong."
Seungyeon has now officially joined the J,WIDE Company family, despite rumors stating that it was likely she was to sign with Widmay Entertainment. A representative from J,WIDE Company said, "Seungyeon recently signed an exclusive contract with us. She had good promotions as a singer and actress for the past 9 years, and we thought highly of her charms and potential."
The agency added, "Seungyeon has outstanding skills in a variety of things including singing, acting and variety. So that she can have a full range of activities, we will wholeheartedly support her with our systematic management system. Please look forward to Seungyeon's upcoming activities."
