Jieun is now a former member of SECRET after her contract with TSE was declared invalid


Following the reveal that SECRET members Jieun and Hyosung were having legal issues with TS Entertainment, Jieun revealed on Instagram that she would be leaving the group after he contract with the company was declared invalid.

“Hello, this is Song Ji Eun. Before I explain, I think I should say first to the fans who have loved and waited for both Secret and Song Ji Eun that I am sorry you found out about this news through articles. I needed a lot of courage before I was able to write this post. I’ve wanted to only tell you good things, and I am upset that I’m not able to.. I don’t currently have another method of communication so I am unfortunately posting this on Instagram, and I ask for your understanding. My gratitude towards TS Entertainment has not changed. Since my time as a trainee to when I was active after my debut, they turned my small dreams into big dreams. It was because of our company that Secret was able to exist and be active while believing in each other and relying on each other, and also meet our fans who still support our dream and are so precious to us. I once again express my gratitude. Since I feel that way, I’m still concerned about how to explain in detail about the current situation. Many people will have seen through the article, but it’s true that I submitted an arbitration application form to the Korean Commercial Arbitration Board in August of 2017 about the invalidity of my contract with TS Entertainment, and I recently received a ruling that my exclusive contract is not valid. Also, I want to clearly explain to the people who have been confused after seeing the article that the article’s statement that I am currently in a civil suit is not true. Since I know how long our fans have waited for Secret, I am cautious and very sorry. However, I still want to convey a bright energy to many people. I will be leaving the group Secret and making a new start under the name of Song Ji Eun. I think that all of your encouragement and support will be a big strength to me. This has been a time where I’ve been able to develop through this experience. I finish this letter while hoping that with this as a foundation, I will see you again while being even brighter and like the original Song Ji Eun. I’m sorry and thank you.”

I would say this sucks since it basically means the end of SECRET, but realistically, they were never coming back anyway so the dream has been over for years now.
