On Feb. 2, Cube Entertainment released a statement confirming that Elkie has terminated her contract with the company.
"We would like to inform you that the exclusive contract with our artist Elkie has been terminated. With this termination, Elkie is now withdrawn from the group CLC," the company wrote. "This conclusion follows a mutual agreement between both parties. We extend our gratitude to the fans who had sent love for Elkie. Please wish Elkie the best in her future endeavors. Thank you."
In December, Elkie shared a letter written in English, Korean, and Chinese on Instagram. In it, she thanked CLC's fans, named Cheshire, for their support and shared her feelings about the future. "In the last 5 years, I had lots of precious moments and great experiences. I'm looking forward to putting some of this learning into practice," she wrote. "I would like to invite you to join me in this journey and I hope we can both gain strength from it."
We can't wait to see what the future has in store for you, Elkie!
