Chuu spoke out after her former agency, BlockBerry Creative, removed her from LOONA.
On November 25, BlockBerry Creative announced Chuu's departure from LOONA, citing "violent language and misuse of power" against a staff member as the reason. On November 28, the agency issued an additional statement clarifying that their initial announcement was not intended to be an exposé and that it was "the rights of Chuu herself and the staff who was harmed to provide the truth or evidence of this."
Chuu took to her personal Instagram account on the evening of November 28 to speak out for the first time since her dismissal from LOONA. Her statement is as follows:
Hello, this is Chuu.
Thank you so much for your concern and comfort.
As | have not received any contact regarding this series of situations or know anything
about them, I’m currently grasping the situation, but what I’m sure of is that | haven't
done anything that would be shameful to my fans. In the future, as my position is
decided, | will share another statement.
Thank you so much for your concern and for trusting in me.
Earlier that day, on November 28, it was also reported that nine LOONA members (HeeJin, HaSeul, YeoJin, Kim Lip, JinSoul, Choerry, Yves, Go Won, and Olivia Hye) had filed injunctions requesting that the validity of their exclusive contracts with BlockBerryCreative be suspended. Since then, the agency has denied the reports.
