In the wake of the shock news from Woollim Entertainment of Hoya‘s departure from INFINITE and the agency, Hoya has released a handwritten and heartfelt note to fans, his former agency and members.
Hoya released the letter through his personal Instagram account.
The letter reads:
“Hello, this is Hoya.”
“Firstly, I’d like to apologise for causing worry to so many people with the sudden news.”
“I also want to apologise to the fans who are probably tired from waiting so long. In my heart, I wanted to let you know first, but I thought the official statement should come before. I ask for your understanding for not being able to let you know for a long time.”
“I thought I lot about what I can say to share my thoughts.”
“First of all, to my INFINITE members…”
“Sungkyu, Dongwoo, Woohyun, Sungyeol, Myungsoo, L and Sungjong.”
“I want to tell them I’m sorry and thank you once again through this letter.”
“I know very well that the reason I was able to receive such great love from INSPIRIT was because I was with INFINITE. I won’t forget that in the future. I’ll hold onto the precious heart that INSPIRIT gave to me with their sincere love. Thank you, and I’m sorry.”
“I also wanted to say once again in this letter that I sincerely thank Lee Joong Yup and the Woollim family for supporting me to grow from nothing to where I am now.”
“From now on, I’ll live with a humble mindset and work hard. I apologise for worrying so many people.”
“Thank you for reading this long letter.”
