BlackSwan Hyeme update: friend's interview + DR statement

follow-up to this post

surprised that DR even put out a statement considering their track record but yeah...not here for DR painting themselves as angels who only put her in BlackSwan as a way for her to end her idol career ~gracefully. she was added against her will (a fact) just so they could market the group with the 'Goodbye Rania' gimmick (my conjecture). but let it be clear that Hyeme was not kicked out because of this scandal, her original 5-year contract expiry was 7 Nov and she apparently agreed to complete this promotion cycle before leaving but then this happened, so she just left on the original date.

also, shameless plug: please share some positive words about Hyeme with #ThankYouHyeme and join my Maxim mag giveaway here!
