Chuu has been reportedly kicked out of the k-pop girl group LOONA.
Following several stories and fan speculation regarding Chuu’s impending departure from the girl group, Blockberry Creative, the label of LOONA, officially stated on November 25 that Chuu is no longer a member. The label claims that Chuu was expelled from the group as a result of her alleged “abuse of authority,” which included her alleged use of derogatory language toward employees.
Blockberry Creative said, “We’re announcing our artist Chuu has been expelled from LOONA as of November 25, 2022. There were many stories about Chuu, but the company and members of LOONA did not say anything for a time to prevent problems concerning the development of the team and fans. Because of LOONA’s affection for the team and consideration of the fans, they tried their best to show good performances and content rather than telling the truth.”
The label added, “We recently investigated Chuu’s abuse of power, including abusive language toward our staff. The company’s head is currently apologizing and comforting staff. We decided to take responsibility and remove Chuu from LOONA. We sincerely apologize to the fans who’ve loved and supported LOONA until now and ask for your forgiveness that the 12 members couldn’t stay together until the end. We and LOONA will do our best to make sure nothing like this happens in the future.”
Late last month, it was revealed that Chuu established her own one-man agency, leading to rumours that she would be quitting LOONA.
Chuu (Hangul: 츄) was the tenth revealed member of LOONA and a member of its third sub-unit, LOONA / yyxy. She debuted on December 14, 2017 as a member and subsequently released her solo single album Chuu on December 28, 2017. Chuu also starred in the web drama Dating Class along with Gyuri of fromis_9 and Seoham from KNK.
