As an effort to repay the love and support they have received, we are currently looking into ways the two trainees can continue to pursue their dreams in both China and Korea. Taking into consideration that our agency headquarter is located in China, we understand it may be difficult to manage the trainees’ schedules and promotions in Korea. Hence we are discussing in details some ways we can transfer the management rights to FNC Entertainment. Again, we thank you for all the encouragement sent our trainees’ ways. Please continue to support their endeavors. Thank you.”
