As a result, Lovelyz debuted without Ji Soo as she was temporarily withdrawn from the group and was admitted to the hospital to receive medical treatment for mental shock.
After Ji Soo and her agency submitted evidence at the Seoul Mapo Police Station, 2 individuals who spread the malicious rumours were finally arrested in May 2015 for the summary offense of defamation and slander. They were charged with a fine as well while Ji Soo has slowly regained her mental stability.
In the past few months, Ji Soo was spotted with the rest of the group members, sparking rumours that she will soon be making a return. At that time, Woollim Entertainment only responded by stating that “nothing has been determined” yet.
However, the agency has recently released a new teaser image via Lovelyz’s official Facebook page and a total of 8 girls can be seen in the picture. The faces of the girls are not visible, but this could only mean one thing – Seo Ji Soo is back!
