I was thinking about working hard this 2014, but on the first day of the New Year, news articles regarding my relationship suddenly came pouring out. I’m the first member to go public, so I felt really apologetic towards the others. I felt bad because the other eight girls would be put in uncomfortable positions trying to answer questions about me. I thought I was burdening them.
