Jiyoon (ex-Weeekly) clarifies comments, says she meant the decisions were by her & IST Entertainment together

Following former Weeekly member Jiyoon starting up her own Twitter account and saying in a live broadcast that leaving the group was not her choice, she has now clarified her comments in a pair of Twitter posts. "I have something to say about the live broadcast I did on August the 4th. There are a few posts around the internet right now relaying what I said during the live, there are a few parts where I may have worded it too rashly+ https://t.co/fluLMzeJlf— ˚김앺디⦵ (@WeeeklyFD) August 7, 2022 my company. But it may have been misunderstood that it . I hope people can refrain spreading excessive speculations and criticism towards the company."— ˚김앺디⦵ (@WeeeklyFD) August 7, 2022 Jiyoon says that she maybe worded things rashly and things were misunderstood. While she did leave the group due to her health, she says she didn’t mean it wasn’t her decision, just that it wasn’t her decision alone and that it was done along with her company. Based on what she said in the previous live broadcast, it seems worth noting she’s still with IST Entertainment. —— The source of the Discord translation that sparked this internationally also spoke out on the issue. I wouldn't translate anything controversial if I wasn't 100% sure the translation is correct, but there were a few misunderstandings/assumptions that some people blew out of proportion from my translation. This was my fault, I shouldn't have translated it in the first place.— ˚김앺디⦵ (@WeeeklyFD) August 7, 2022 Many netizens are criticizing the company and making unsubstantiated assumptions now. I should've known the translations would leak out from the discord, I apologize.— ˚김앺디⦵ (@WeeeklyFD) August 7, 2022 Honestly don’t see the problem with translating it if the information relayed itself was correct and they say it was indeed. Fans are, of course, going to be defensive, but Jiyoon said what she did publicly and she knows that as well.
