[+ 8989, – 185] I feel so sorry for Somin..she debuted as ‘Purity’ 3 years ago in DSP but that got disbanded after one or two singles. During KARA project, she was such a good singer and was always #1 among the judges but came second place to Youngji after global fan votes. When Sojin passed away she must have been devastated. As a fan I know her passion as a singer is bigger than anyone else and I don’t understand why she decided to suddenly leave. Only DSP and herself know the truth…

[+ 7301, – 223] She worked for 4 long years to debut and finally made it as April. Now she’s leaving? Hand written letter? Something’s weird…

[+ 6677, – 170] Wouldn’t she feel all the work she put in was wasted? I can only think that DSP had something to do with this…

[+ 5039, – 282] Who knows she wrote this voluntarily..I feel sorry for the members that are left..
