Oh wow this sounds pretty scary. I saw a line distibrution video that was a recent version of Rough without Yuju and I figured it was a performance she missed out due to any injury or being sick. But almost a month and their company not saying why is pretty disturbing

No, and I'm worried :( I'm sure it's just for something like a surprise solo debut (which would be great!) but like. there were better ways to go about this, Source

That wording is ominous as hell. If it's for something like a solo it's kinda messed up to worry fans like this.

Oh wow, they are being very ominous here oO

wow, way to... barely assuage fears. like i'm glad that we've eliminated the worst possible scenario but that still leaves... major medical problems? leaving the group? god i hope not

(btw i watched one of those trashy "kpop news" videos about this on yt and they mentioned a prediction from a popular "kpop prophecy" twitter about a popular member of a girl group leaving... can i just say i have no idea why ppl put faith in that stuff when it's so easy to fake)
sra_interesante 21st-Nov-2018 01:15 am (UTC)
well, its true ... this account is famous for predicting random things like nugu groups first win and ost release dates lol

i hope its not true tho because neither of predicted members leaving have happened yet

myrrhcat 21st-Nov-2018 02:14 am (UTC)
prediction accs like this usually just tweet stuff en masse and then delete/disregard anything that didn't come true, so they get things right by chance... I wouldn't put any faith in it unless they have a ton of connections in the industry lol

there's a better way to word that lmao damn

I've seen people talk about an abortion and Idk if it's stans taking things too far, or these rumors are coming from somewhere. I also heard they're preparing her for a solo but would they give her a month off just for that?!!!! idk.

I hate how they’re handling this and dragging it out. Some buddies have been speculating about possible solo activities but I don’t get why Source would have to make such a weird sounding statement if that was the case? Idk.

All they have to say is that she is taking a break for personal reasons. Y’all don’t need a specific reason as it is no ones business and boundaries and all that (if this is just a case of her taking time off for herself or something). The wording is weird and not gonna help anything, and saying “we will reveal the reason later” sounds like this gonna be some mess they weren’t prepared for.

Man, I just hope she's well.

didn't she just participate in a solo song with Yoon Jong Shin for a solo song? Why is everyone freaking out? They have all been super tired lately from both Korea and Japan activities. Also, they always do Season's Greeting (which they just posted a youtube video for last week) so they are all probably preparing for that and I bet she's doing some solo stuff for the concert. Fans should calm down.
pseudo_shigure 20th-Nov-2018 03:38 pm (UTC)
wow. i came here thinking the comments would be 'it's gonna be a solo release' but y'all sounds so scary here
myrrhcat 20th-Nov-2018 10:41 pm (UTC)
i just can't imagine why she'd have to miss out on so many group activities to prepare a solo debut? i can't think of any other idol who's done that, although admittedly i'm no encyclopedia of knowledge

I hate their wording, it's so weird
I hope it's a solo debut, that would be dope. But she could also be taking a break, which is totally fine and could have been better announced...
mandm13 20th-Nov-2018 09:50 pm (UTC)
I had no idea about this, but I agree with the rest of the comments posted here, acting so misterious saying they will reveal the reason for her absence soon doesn't sound very well... Hope it's good news

'there is no issues with the safety of member Yuju' like what sort of statement is that
