Hello, this is Lucas.
Today, I have an important announcement to share with you.
After much deliberation and reflection, I have made the difficult decision to part ways with the group NCT and WayV. I sincerely feel sorry for the members, and it is with a heavy heart that I leave behind a long-standing friendship. It has been nearly 8 years since I first joined the members, and I am deeply grateful for their care and support. I will cherish these memories and never forget. I hope that the members will remember me as Huang Xuxi, not just Lucas. I genuinely love them and will always support them from the bottom of my heart.
It took considerable time for me to reach this decision, and I believe this is the right decision for the good of all. Moving forward, I intend to muster the courage to face the fans who have been waiting for me and to pursue individual endeavors. I believe the best way to repay the fans who support me is by continuing to deliver outstanding performances.
I will strive to become a more mature Huang Xuxi and an even better Lucas.
Lastly, I want to express my heartfelt gratitude to all the fans and everyone who has continually supported me.
The comments were flooded with fans sharing their best wishes and anticipating what the future holds for the idol following the announcement.
