Read her statement below:


Hi everyone, it’s Lee Hi.

I am currently still debating which company to join and have spent the whole month of January holding meetings with various companies. I’m a bit shocked at all the news that has come out regarding this even though I have not confirmed anything yet. I am currently negotiating with several companies and will be making a decision in the near future.

I hope that after I make my decision that I can be the first one to let everyone know. I will try my best to make a decision and bring everyone good news.

I hope that everyone can wait a bit longer and trust me before speculating things.

Thank you.

—Lee Hi
