Former FIESTAR member Cheska has shared that she has stopped making music following the emotional toll and stress it has caused her.

On May 29 KST, Cheska posted on Instagram in response to fans’ questions about when she’ll be releasing future music.

“I am no longer going to be making music due to the stress,” she explained. “Music has destroyed my confidence and happiness. I had fun and learned a lot from it but I noticed that it was killing me slowly. Thank you so much for those who have supported me through my ups and downs from 2012 till my last single ‘Aura.’”
