Black Swan‘s Hyeme recently faced controversy less than a month after her debut for allegedly taking money from a male fan and going MIA.

While the male fan made claims that Hyeme scammed her, Hyeme refuted the accusations saying she simply ran away out of fear because he continued to make sexual requests in return.

Regardless, Hyeme ultimately left the group just one month after her debut, and she expressed her regret in a handwritten letter.

I sincerely apologize to fans who were disappointed by the unfortunate incident.

Not only did she apologize to fans, but she apologized to her fellow members as well.

I joined the group, which debuted at a difficult time, and I hoped to be of help to the other members, but they ended up getting hurt because of me instead, and that makes my heart feel heavy.

Hyeme shared that she’ll be returning to being an average civilian and cheer on the other members from a distance.

As a result of my contract termination, I’ll be returning to my life as a normal civilian, but I’ll be cheering on the other members from afar.
