Park Yoon Hwa expressed, “I guess I can no longer be a part of T-Max’s new album. I know that my fans understand my personal reasons, and know that I have been called to become a man of my nation. I have to say goodbye quickly so that I can settle my personal matters as well.
“I worked very hard over these past few years, and there is so much more I haven’t shown you all yet, which is why I feel I have to say goodbye in this way. I hope you all understand me, because I was going through some agonizing time in thought before I came to this decision. Even though I won’t be able to move on with my T-Max partners, I told them all my support and love.”.
