Hello, My Day. I am sincerely grateful for all of you who have been together with DAY6 and I. For the past six years, I have been really happy and made memories that will last forever in my heart.
I’ve had a lot of thoughts and put in a lot of work, but I am still lacking in too many areas for me to stay where I am now.
After discussions with the agency, I am sorry to tell you that I have arrived at the decision to take a break from DAY6 activities for now. I will cherish the memories of sweating and running together, crying and rejoicing together, from the past six years, and return having grown!
This has been DAY6’s Jae. Thank you.
We look forward to seeing what new chapters Jae will unfold as an artist going forward!
