Former Rania member Yumin shared a heartfelt post about her departure from the girl group and her upcoming wedding to former ToppDogg member P-Goon.

On July 17, Yumin uploaded a photo from her wedding pictorial with P-Goon on Instagram, along with her thoughts on her newly announced engagement.

Her post reads as follows:

“Hello. This is Yumin.

“I first want to apologize for the fact that the notice of my departure [from Rania] was publicized before I released an official statement, as well as the fact that I surprised the people around me when they found out about the wedding through news articles before I informed them.

“I’ve always been surprising the people around me. A kid who had only worked part-time jobs suddenly said she wanted to become a model and started promotions. After receiving a lot of love as a model, I was able to gain the new experience of being in a girl group as a new member of Rania. However, even though I should have shown you better things through my continuous efforts, I hit a wall due to my insufficient skills, and I decided to leave [the group].

“We dated for four seasons [one year] with marriage in mind, and now, after combining our hearts and promising to be together for the rest of our lives, we will get married in August.

“In a way, I think it may not have been easy for me to announce the news because I wasn’t confident according to my standards of success. However, we plan to cheer each other on even more in the future and spend the rest of our lives together as true partners.

“Thank you to everyone who congratulated us and took an interest despite the sudden news.”

안녕하세요 유민입니다. 먼저 공식 입장 발표 전에 탈퇴 공지가 올라온 점, 그 후 결혼 소식 또한 제가 알리기 전 기사로 접하게 되어 주변 분들께 혼란을 드린 점 진심으로 죄송하단 말씀 전합니다. 저는 여태 늘 주변을 놀랬켰었습니다 알바만 하던 아이가 갑자기 모델이 된다며 활동을 시작했고 그렇게 모델로서 과분한 사랑을 받다가 라니아라는 새 멤버로 활동하며, 걸그룹이라는 새로운 경험을 할 수 있었습니다. 하지만 늘 노력으로 앞서 보여드려야 했었으나, 부족한 실력에 제 스스로의 벽에 부딪혀 이겨내지 못하였고, 그렇게 탈퇴를 결정하게 되었습니다. 저희는 결혼을 전제로 만남을 가지며 함께 사계절을 지내다 이제는 뜻을 합쳐 평생을 함께하기로 약속하여 8월에 결혼식을 올리게 되었습니다. 어쩌면 스스로가 떳떳하지 못하다 여기는 성공의 기준으로 쉽사리 알리지 못했기도 했던 것 같습니다. 하지만 앞으로 서로의 길을 더 응원하며 둘도 없는 동반자가 되어 평생을 함께하려 합니다. 갑작스러운 소식에도 축하와 관심 주신 모든 분들께 감사를 전합니다.
