It seems like just yesterday that I debuted as a member of After School as a new recruit, but it’s already been 8 years. Since then, the members who were in high school have become college students, and my front seat has changed. During my promotions, the word ‘graduation’ felt foreign to me, but now it’s my turn. Time goes so fast. Even though I can no longer be After School’s UEE, I will never forget that I am a graduate of After School, where ever I may be. I would like to thank everyone in the Pledis family, and am thankful and apologetic toward the [After School] members. I will become a UEE who is always bright and who does everything with joy.” -UEE
