In an exclusive interview for "Girls Planet 999," Yujin broke into tears when she talked about her group, CLC, who has been on hiatus for almost a year now.
CLC Yujin disclosed, "I gave it all to CLC. The company said the team was dismissed."
"I worked so hard during the time. I want to keep singing and show my charm to the public," she added.
Yujin went on to say that the company (CUBE Entertainment) said that CLC won't be doing team activities anymore.
While Yujin didn't directly say that CLC has disbanded, many viewers speculated that is the real case of the girl group.
Following the broadcast of "Girls Planet 999" Episode 2, many fans took to Twitter to share what CLC Yujin revealed in the show, with the keyword "CLC DISBAND" trending on the platform.
While many fans are shocked about the news, some fans claimed that "dismissed" and "disbanded" are different words, signifying that they don't believe it.
Other fans also mentioned what former CLC Elkie said when she submitted a request to terminate her exclusive contract with CUBE Entertainment in December 2020.
In the letter Elkie sent to CUBE through a law firm, it was stated that apart from failing to pay her, another reason why she wants to terminate her contract is that the company is no longer providing support for CLC's activities after the label's structural changes.
