Tia's contract finally ends, announces she has left Chocolat

Tia shocked her followers today after she announced her departure from girl group, Chocolat.

On February 7th, Tia updated her personal Instagram account with a personal statement about her departure.

Although the group has not made a return to the local music scene for a quite time, many were still astonished of her leave.

Here was what she said:

Hello, everyone,
I first wanted to thank all of my fans for the love and support you have given throughout the years. Due to my contract coming to an end, I will no longer be able to work as Chocolat Tia. I do plan to continue pursuing my music and am continuously working on my own projects. Please anticipate my comeback and I ask that you all support my future activities. Thank you again and I love you all.

-Former Chocolat member Tia

The statement and mention of the group’s contract expiring immediately led to further speculations that the group may disband. It was considered that Tia made her debut with the group as the main dancer and vocalist of the group back in 2011.

Chocolat has not promoted as a group since “Black Tinkerbell” back in 2013.

SBS series "God's Gift" to be remade by ABC

U.S. channel ABC will broadcast a remake of a Korean murder mystery series starting in June, the original drama's distributor said Wednesday.

"Somewhere Between" would be the first American series based on a Korean format, according to SBS TV. The network has unusually given a straight-to-series order for 10 episodes of the series apparently based on its president's positive reviews of the original drama, SBS TV said.

The 2014 SBS series "God's Gift" tells the story of a mother who goes back in time to bring her murdered child back to life. It starred Lee Bo-young, Jo Seung-woo, Kim Tae-woo and Kim Yoo-bin.

The American remake will be written by Stephen Tolkin of "Legend of the Seeker" and "Brothers & Sisters," who will serve as executive director along with Ivan Fecan and Joseph Broido. Actress Paula Patton, best known for "Mission Impossible - Ghost Protocol" and "Deja Vu," has been set as lead. The series will begin shooting in Vancouver, Canada, in March.

I feel like 90% of my drama/movie posts are about remakes lol.
