Lee Mi Joo officially embraces her new group following Lovelyz's disbandment.
Before Lovelyz split after years of performing as a group, its member Lee Mi Joo delivered a heartfelt message to her "family." She told Jessi during the rapper's Showterview that the girl group was home to her.
Though the members lived separately before the official breakup, the K-pop idol said it made her feel happy to be with them after a long time. However, her happiness did not last long as the group's agency announced that all members – except for Baby Soul – chose not to renew their contracts.
With the disbandment, Lee Mi Joo had to change her profile, and her new information shocked the fans.
