Han Sunhwa speaks up for the first time following departure from SECRET

Han Sunhwa left a message to fans following her official leave from girl group SECRET and TS Entertainment.

On September 26th, Sunhwa stated on her official Instagram, “A different, much careful greetings to you, Secret Time.” She first thanked her fans for their support over the past seven years as a member of SECRET.

She continues, “I am much regretful and somber as I have made a difficult decision. I will cherish the memories. I will devote all of my passion for the days to come,” concluding with, “I thank my TS Entertainment family, SECRET members, and fans for being with me throughout this journey.”

It was previously reported that Han Sunhwa’s contract with TS Entertainment will be ending on October 13th, and that she will be pursuing an acting career onward.

Meanwhile, SECRET will become a 3-member group without any additional members. Jeon Hyosung, Song Jieun, and Jung Hana have all renewed their contracts.

Read the full translation of her letter to fans down below:

To all the Secret Time fans and those who cheered for us….hello this is Han Sun Hwa. Unlike many other times I am very careful to say what I have to say to all of you today.
First for the last 7 years I have received more love than I can say as a member of SECRET and I am thankful to have laughed and cried with you all and I cannot express how happy I was.

Looking back I do not think I would have been able to accomplish half of what I have done alone at a time where I was so inexperienced. I received more love and attention than I would have ever imagined was possible

I am sad and a little disheartened having made such a difficult decision but I will cherish all the memories and use all the passion I have had in the past and move forward into the future.

As I prepare for a new journey I am sure I will seem lacking and awkward but I will continue on and work hard to pay you back for all the support you have shown me.

Thank you to all the TS family, my members and all the fans that have supported me I sincerely thank you
