Hello. This is Woojin. Firstly, I want to thank you guys for sending me so much love and for giving endless encouragement to Stray Kids’ “Woojin”.
First, I want to apologize for the sudden new that cause many people to be shocked and overwhelmed. Because I don’t have a personal SNS, I was concerned about how to express my feelings and share my condition, and I needed time to heal and to adjust to my current life. Although it’s hard to explain how long I’ve been thinking about this, I believe that the fans who have loved me until now will be understanding.
Until the day I can stand in front of you guys, I will work hard and put good thought and sincerity into my songs! E ven though it may take awhile, please look out for me and cheer me on.
I genuinely thank you and love you all.
– From, Woojin
