There’s a lot of things that I want to say, and I don’t know how to talk to you, but… I am sincerely sorry and grateful to you all for always being at our side and believing in us and being with us. Also, I love you. As a leader of the group. I will be even more determined and sincere so that Melody’s future will always be filled with happiness. I love you with all my heart.”
