At the recent press conference for the web drama “Oppa Is Missing” (tentative title), in which 9MUSES’ Hyemi is starring alongside Teen Top’s Changjo, Hyemi revealed how thankful and sorry she is to 9MUSES fans.
Hyemi said, regarding the frequent member changes in her group, “I’m always so sorry to 9MUSES fans. Honestly, fans don’t have to go through all of these things, but sticking with us, they do. I’m really sorry, but at the same time I’m so thankful that they’ve stayed with us through everything, and I’m determined to do right by them.”
“Oppa Is Missing” is about a mystery woman, Yoo Ri Ae (Hyemi), who seeks out a detective (Changjo) to help her find her missing brother. The drama will be airing every day on Naver TV Cast from January 11 through January 16.

1. [+3,018, -25] Still can't believe Hyemi's the only original member left in the group..
2. [+2,224, -75] I miss the 9 member days ㅠㅠㅠㅠ but it seems to be true that the members left because of their lack of popularity ㅠㅠㅠ makes me sad
3. [+1,019, -38] She's so nice ㅠㅠ I'll always support you girls!!!
4. [+929, -40] They've never won #1.....
5. [+194, -4] I misread the title and thought Hyemi was leaving too for a second..
6. [+194, -11] Nine Muses could've made it bigger if their agency knew what they were doing..
7. [+135, -4] I've loved every single Nine Muses song and outfit concept.. ㅜ They probably would've won #1 by now if they picked better comeback timings and their agency did their job..
8. [+122, -1] Their agency is to blame for their lack of popularity. Marketing is so important, just look at Girlfriend... even if they're from a small agency, their marketing team knows what they're doing and it's what really divides success and failure
9. [+125, -8] They have so many good songs that aren't trendy and sound good even when you listen to them today ㅠㅠ I listen to them on my drives ㅠㅠ nothing we can do about the member leaves but to wish them the best pursuing what they want ㅠㅠ
10. [+81, -8] Nine Muses was over the second Sera left. She was the ace of the group.
11. [+60, -3] If Nine Muses had been under SM or YG, the agency would've invested enough money in them for them to have already won #1 ㅋㅋ
12. [+47, -1] The members are even good at dancing and singing live... They would've been top already if they had enough media play during their 'Dolls', 'Glue', or 'Wild' promos. Pretty faces, great bodies, awesome talent... such a shame
13. [+31, -1] I always found it odd how they're the prettiest faces with the best bodies out of all the girl groups and yet they never made it
14. [+32, -2] Would've been better if they held on to Sera and pushed Minha into acting. Minha had so much potential.
15. [+20, -1] I still don't know any of the members other than Kyungri... their agency needs to really step it up with the marketing.

if SE did their job right, 2013 would've been their legendary year. But im still glad they keep throwing money into 9muses even though they consistently flop! (also lol at the nine muscial chairs tag)
