Former Kara Member Kang Ji Young Leaves Handwritten Note as She Starts Fresh in London
With her contract with DSP Media officially over, Kang Ji Young departed from Kara, leaving a handwritten note for her fans.
On April 5, DSP Media announced that its contract with Kang Ji Young has come to an end. The agency stated that it will respect her wishes to go solo and will send her support and encouragement as Kang Ji Young starts a new journey on her own.
The agency also added that Kang Ji Young will study abroad in London for the time being. She left on April 5.
On April 6, Kang Ji Young uploaded a handwritten letter in both Korean and Japanese on her Instagram, sending her thanks to the fans who supported her in Kara.
“As you all know through the articles, I left for London on April 5. I was a bit scared because I was alone, so I came to London, where my friend lives, but after always being taken care of, after being with my members and staff, I’m realizing how special the people around me are now that I am alone,” wrote Kang Ji Young.
“Perhaps because I ran so far, so busily, I’m very happy during this time and spending it to the fullest. I hope to read more books, study English, travel a lot, and do many things I haven’t experienced before. I don’t know when it will be, but I’ll return when I am an improved and matured adult. Until that day comes, please don’t forget me and wait for me!”
She promised to keep fans up to date and apologized for causing much worry.
