South Korean actress/singer Yeeun has opened up about Wonder Girls's disbandment. The girl group, which debuted under JYP Entertainment officially disbanded on January 26.

During a press conference for MBC Every1's variety program Cross Country, the 27-year-old artist talked about the group's disbandment. She said: "Although they are calling it a disbandment, it's actually more like a period of time during which we are each focusing on individual activities."

"We're like a family so we're always supportive and encouraging of each other. I think we're each taking time to make personal improvements. I hope our fans will continue to love and support us. I feel very apologetic towards our fans and am always very thankful for them. I will work hard to constantly improve," she continued.

The girl group was formed in 2007, and made with their debut with the single, Irony. They quickly became famous with the singles Nobody and So Hot. Wonder Girls had made their much-anticipated comeback in July with Why So Lonely.

Meanwhile, Yeeun also talked about her experience working on Cross Country. She said: "Although this [press conference] is my first official activity since the disbandment, filming for the show began in November of 2016. Since I like both vacations and music, I decided to film with an open heart and mind. I met many good friends and colleagues through this program so it was a meaningful experience for me."
