Lia pens note for fans
In a post on Instagram, as reported by Soompi, Lia expressed, “Greetings, MIDZY. I’m sure the news today might have taken you by surprise. I know how much MIDZY cares about me, even when I’m just slightly under the weather. I was concerned that you’d feel saddened and disheartened upon hearing the news. However, I also find strength in the fact that MIDZY knows and believes in me more than anyone else. Your unwavering support gives me the courage to face this, knowing that you will understand and patiently await my return.”
“It has been six years since I embarked on this incredible journey alongside the companions I met through our common dream. I have traversed through time and distance, arriving at this point, all thanks to the unwavering support of my fellow members and our beloved MIDZY fans. Along the way, we’ve encountered numerous challenges and experiences, each leaving its mark on our memories and sprinkling us with countless moments of joy. While these times were undoubtedly precious, I’ve come to the realization that amidst the hustle and bustle, I’ve been slowly losing sight of myself.”
Lia has requested a break.
“I am endlessly thankful to MIDZY, more than anyone else, and my sole desire is to reciprocate your love and joy. To achieve this, I realized the importance of taking some time for self-care and self-love. As I often express, my heartfelt wish is for MIDZY to find happiness.
