      They always has been my pillar of support ever since I was young. I was always a loner in school---without any close friends and all and because of them I didn't fall into depression( because of many tough times).They have made a huge difference in my life. Although this comment is not much, I would like thank them sincerely from the bottom of my heart. And I really hope that everyone will continue to support them though Jessica left the group. Please have your faith in the group again for I highly doubt that they will disappoint you. It's fine if you dislike the group, but please don't hate them. They have gone through a 8 year long road of bumps and I will really appreciate it if you all support them. Good luck for your comeback , unnies !

      Yours sincerely,

      Kate( sone)
