Denise recently announced that she is officially leaving Secret Number.
Denise has been on hiatus from the group since September 2021 due to contract adjustments. As a result, she didn’t perform during the “Fire Saturday” era.
Many fans expected that Denise would eventually leave the group, and Denise confirmed that she left the group via her newly reopened Instagram account on February 4. She posted her message in English and Korean.
Hello, this is Denise.
I regret to inform you that as of February 1, 2022, my contract with Vine Entertainment has concluded. To those who have been waiting for answers during this time and are taken aback by this news, I would like to first sincerely apologize. By debuting as a member of Secret Number, I was able to make precious memories with both my members and our Lockeys. I am blessed to have been able to promote with such wonderful women, who I consider sisters, and to have received so much love and support during our past year together. I would like to thank the company and all those who cared for and supported me during that time. Although this is my final statement as a part of Secret Number, I wish nothing but the best for my members and ask that you continue to support them as well. Finally, I would like to thank all the Lockeys who have stuck with us during our journey together. Lockey love forever. Love always and thank you.
Your forever MMM,
Denise also opened her own YouTube account and posted a cover of DAY6‘s “You Were Beautiful” as a gift for her members and Lockeys.
Since Denise’s announcement, fans have shared words of support for her on Twitter.
