Hello, this is EunjiImage and Translation source: @bg_hynn on Twitter https://twitter.com/bg_hynn/status/1626178786386669568?s=20
You may have been so upset to hear the news today, which
makes me feel bad and worry about you, my dear Fearless
I have no idea how to make you fully understand my heart for you
I’ve been so happy for the past 8 years, which is a long time, including the period when I was a trainee after joining Brave Entertainment. I am happy that I could spend most of my 20’s
with these precious members of mine and meet our fans I love so much
There have been a lot of ups and downs. However, I can finally say good-bye with a smile, wrapping
up the relationship with CEO Brave Brothers, who went through a lot for us, and company personnel, fortunately on good terms. It’s a kind of bummer and it somewhat makes me sad but that’s OK
I haven’t looked back once since I was given those precious stages and dream-like moments two years ago, when I thought the end was near. I’ve been so grateful for those moments I had and sometimes wondered if I deserved that much love from you and how I could pay that love back to you….
The only way we could give back your love was through good music and perforamce. And I feel
so bad that we could not fill your heart until the very last moment
However, I’m so glad that I got to meet you, my precious Fearless, and I do appreciate this relationshop we have
It was a beautiful and happy 8 years of my life that I will never forget, at this company
Fearless who loved, cared about and cheered for us on our side more than anyone else!
Those loud cheering voices and heartfelt words from you made me to come this far. When I felt
down and out, you were the only reason I could hold on
You may be upset and feel sad right now, however, we will never say ‘it’s over.’ So I wish this could
ease your sorrow a little bit better!
We are so sorry that we could’t show you more music and stages before. And we will try to find a way to make it possible, no matter how small it will be I’m a bit afraid of this new start, but I will make my way through with the stong heart of mine full of gratitude for your love
I will try to show you the new and different parts of me moving
forward. Please cheer me up a lot and give me your support
It’s been Eunji of Brave Girls
Yujeong on Instagram (https://www.instagram.com/p/CotlgYaP_ZK/):
I used to say hello with the things I though would make you laugh. But today, my heart is so broken and I’m very sorry to greet you with this news that may not do so
Today I’m leaving Brave Entertainment where I spent about 8 years. I could made my dream come true, for the first time, met the members I love, cried, laughed, got to know who and what I am, and finally, came to know the meaning of true love and friendship throughout those years. I really appreciate it.
This goodbye, after what we have achieved for the past two years, seems to be more painful and harder to bear, compared to the point when we thought about it for the first time two years ago just before the viral hit
As I had much of your love and expectations, I feel all the worse and come to wonder if I really
deserved them from you. Again, thank you so much
By the way, everyone!
Don’t you think there is no eternal farewell? I want to prove it with our members someday, for sure
I will continue to root for Brave Brothers, who went through a lot for us, and all the family members of Brave Entertainment as well
And please keep giving your suport and love to my dear Minyoung (1), Yujeong (2), Eunji (3) and Yuna(4), wherever they are and whatever they do
I will keep trying to make a better person out of myself, Nam Yu-jeong, who has much to improve
Again, I really want to thank every single one of you, including Fearless, who stood by Brave Girls and lifted us up. Thank you so so much. I really do appreciate itImage and Translation Source: @bg_hynn on Twitter https://twitter.com/bg_hynn/status/1626125172054061057?s=20
Most of all, I wish this news is not too painful for you
And also I wish I could see you again, right here, someday
Speculation around their contract renewal began on February 15th, when it was noticed by a fan that a Brave Girls song titled “Goodbye” was sent to KBS for broadcast review. It was then revealed in the statement on the 16th from Brave Entertainment that “Goodbye” would be released that same day as a digital single. “Goodbye” was released at 6PM KST and included the song and video titled “Goodbye : Epilogue Film” that consists of behind the scenes clips of the Brave Girls members, leading up to their goodbye.
