여러분 안녕하세요 현희입니다 🐰 오랜만에 올리는 글인데 , 가볍지만은 않은 글이 될것 같습니다. 스물하나에 시작하여 지금까지 늘 저의 또다른 이름이자 팀이었던 ‘신현희와김루트’ 가 계약해지로 인하여 각자의 활동을 하기로 결정하였습니다. 신루트로 활동하면서 정말 많이 웃고 울고 모든 희노애락을 다 경험한것 같은데, 이런 소식을 갑작스레 전하게 되어 굉장히 안타깝고 아쉽습니다. 신루트를 늘 아끼고 사랑해주셨던 많은 팬분들과 사랑하는 큐리프리리 그리고 도움을 주셨던 많은 분들께 정말 감사드립니다. 또한, 저는 앞으로 ‘신현희’로 계속 음악활동을 이어나갈것이며 , 혼자일 제가 조금은 걱정도 되고 내가 잘 할수있을까 하는 생각에 막연히 두렵기도 하지만, 늘 그래왔듯 노래 만들고 부르는것이 저에게는 가장 행복한 일이기때문에 있는 그대로 모든 무대에서 최선을 다 할 예정입니다. 부디 새로운 저의 시작에 많은 힘을 실어주세요🙇🏼‍♀️🙏🏻찬란하고 아름다웠던 잊지못할 신루트의 시간들을 만들어주셔서 너무나 감사드립니다.

Hello, everyone. This is Hyun Hee. I’m writing for the first time after a while, but now I have something serious I must say. I have had SEENROOT as my second name since I was twenty-one, but now that our contracts have expired, we have chosen to go our seperate ways. I have experienced ups and downs, laughed and cried while promoting as part of SEENROOT. I have much regret and I am very apologetic to be giving you this news out of the blue.
Thank you to the fans who loved SEENROOT, to the fans whom I adore, and to everyone who helped us over the years. I will continue to make music as “Shin Hyun Hee”, and even though I am afraid and a little nervous about whether or not I can do this alone, making music and singing is what makes me the happiest. I will put my all in every performance. Please support my new start! I will not forget the times I spent as SEENROOT, thank you for making it happen.

The group debuted back in 2014 and gained fame in 2015 after their song “Sweet Heart” (also known as “Oppaya”) was being used for aegyo in numerous variety shows.
