K-Pop girl group, Tahiti, has officially disbanded after 6 years of promoting as a team.
Tahiti’s leader, Minjae, notified fans of the news through an Instagram post of their decision to officially disband as a group.
“Hello, this is Tahiti’s leader, Minjae. After a thorough discussion with our company and members, we have decided to part ways and start over again. I am very sad to inform this news the day after our 6th-anniversary celebration. I’ve had so many thoughts cross my mind before writing this post. My time as Tahiti’s Minjae has been filled with tears and laughter and was a beautiful and valuable memory for me. At first, being the leader of a team was extremely difficult. I thought it didn’t suit me. But thanks to our members and fans, I began gaining confidence and the Minjae that I am today is able to exist because of them. Thank you so much for your consistent support and love. Although our official promotions as Tahiti has come to an end, Tahiti will live forever in my heart! Our fans will always be Black Pearls to me. I will continue to pursue music and will do my best to shore more of myself to everyone. I will continue my life without forgetting all of these precious memories. I was so grateful for all the love I received. I bow my head in appreciation for it. Will you continue to love us? We will continue to communicate with everyone through SNS and show better aspects of ourselves. Please don’t ever forget Minjae! I love you, our/my fans forever.”
Tahiti’s maknae, Ari, and Jerry also left a farewell messages to fans.

After careful, consideration and much deliberation between our company and all the members of Tahiti, we have come to the decision of disbandment. I am very saddened and apologetic to breaking this news to all the Black Pearls around the world, only days after our 6th year anniversary. I would like to say thank you to everyone who has supported, inspired us through the years and stood by us in this difficult decision. Looking back at the last six years with our fans, I am very grateful and blessed but also very heartbroken, too you all. Through these years, even in the toughest times, I could never really expressed my gratitude and thankfulness, to all the fans worldwide! Through the abundant love and endless support from you all, we as a group could endure it all! Even though Tahiti as a group has come to an end and we all will be going our separate ways to start a new chapter in our lives. Going forward, you can expect new exciting things from me. I promise to work even harder and improve to show you a renewed version of myself! These years with Tahiti were undeniably precious and I take none of them for granted.
