[MHN Jeeyoung Shin reporter] The Arks’ Euna Kim has announced her marriage and retirement at the same time!
On May 24th, Euna Kim posted her announcement of marriage and retirement on her Instagram. Showing her bright smile, she wrote in a caption:
"Hello, this is Euna Kim. It's been a while since the last time I wrote like this.
I couldn't even fathom I could write a post like this while I was in Korea. First, I'd like to thank all the people who have been supporting me from my audition program days to The Ark, Unpretty Rapstar3, and KHAN days. I was just an ordinary student who didn't even dream of becoming a singer so I learned a lot through various experiences in Korea, laughing and crying through the journey.
I was able to go through rough times thanks to my supportive colleagues and fans. Some of you might not aware but I came back to the U.S. in the summer of 2019. Due to internal circumstances of the label, I wasn't able to promote as a member of KHAN and I needed to start fresh. I have been doing well after coming back to my usual ordinary life, thanks to my friends and family.
Then another blessing came to me. I met someone who I can love and grow with for the rest of my life. I am just grateful to have someone, who genuinely has so much to learn from, in my humble life. There is much room for improvement but we promised each other to become a positive influence on others who are around us by showing support for each other. I think we are going to get married this year.
I am also sorry for my fans and supporters because you won't be able to see me as an idol. I don't know when I'll sing again but I'll make sure to live my life to the fullest as a person Kim Euna as well.
Thank you for loving and supporting a singer named Euna Kim. I'm sincerely praying for you to have every day full of blessings."
Meanwhile, Euna Kim is a Korean American singer and rapper, where she appeared as a contestant on the South Korean survival reality shows Superstar K3, Unpretty Rapstar 3, and The Unit.
Congratulations and best wishes to Euna Kim!
