In response to fans’ concerns, GFRIEND’s agency has released an official statement about Yuju‘s month-long absence.

At the time, some fans speculated that Yuju’s absence was due to working on “Cramming”, a collaboration with singer Yoon Jong Shin that dropped on November 9.
After the collab dropped, there was still no news of Yuju. Fans continued to worry and asked GFRIEND’s agency to release a statement about her whereabouts.
