South Korean artist Hyunyoung has opened up about Rainbow's disbandment. In October 2016, Entertainment agency DSP Media had confirmed the band's split through an official statement.
The South Korean girl group was launched in 2009 by DSP Media. The group consisted of seven members including Woori, Seungah, Jaekyung, Noeul, Jisook and Hyunyoung.
During an interview, the 25-year-old dished about Rainbow's disbandment. She said: "It's not a disbandment. I look at it as a temporary suspension. The word disbandment is so sad. Although our contract expired, the members still contact each other often. Though we can't meet as often as before, our chat room is still very energetic. Not much has changed between us after our contract expired, because we're like family. If any of the members are doing well, we all congratulate them. We still have a good relationship."
She added: "There are a lot of regrets. I was thinking over these regrets one day and I watched our old performances online. When I saw those, I remembered how happy I was then and I started to miss it already. I was a little sad thinking, 'When will I be able to stand on the same stage as members like these again?'"
Adding on, Hyunyoung talked about her future plans. She said: "I've moved agencies and we're in talks about various things. I'm getting ready to work in the future. I also moved houses as well. I'm thinking of going into acting so I'm learning how to act. I also exercise and study Chinese."
