However, there was talk about a one-person agency being formed.. I have never thought about a one-person agency and it's not true at all. I'm informing you because I thought you might be confused. I will let you know when my new agency has been confirmed. Please have a happy day! Hwaiting!"

The 18-year-old actress also successfully completed her high school qualification examination. As noted by Soompi, she wrote on her official fan cafe, "I passed my high school qualification exam! This isn't a big deal, but I'm letting my fans know because they were concerned about my busy schedules before the exam. I was really worried [about this whole process], but so many people gave me courage. Thank you."
