Chuu Will not be Participating in LOONA’s First World Tour


After 4 years since their hit debut with smash single HI High’, LOONA is finally going on their first world tour LOONATHEWORLD’. But for fans, this has been a kind of sad news as BlockBerry Creative, the company which LOONA is signed under, announced this week that member Chuu will NOT be embarking on this world tour alongside her 11 other members.

From LOONA’s official fan-page it was stated that the reason behind this devastating revelation is because of Chuu’s conflicting schedules and activities for this year. The official statement said ‘’due to scheduled activities that have been fixed in advance throughout the rest of the year, LOONA’s Chuu will not be participating in the 2022 LOONA 1st world tour. We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your patience and support’’

Fans are distraught over this news, with some speculating the reasons behind this sudden axe from the line-up. One main theory is that this has something to do with the lawsuit Chuu had previously filed against her own company with wishes for the court to suspend her contract with BlockBerry Creative.

If such a thing happened, then Chuu, who’s off-stage name is Kim Jiwoo, would no longer be able to be known by her group moniker as just a month before she filed her lawsuit, the company had filed a trademark on the stage name LOONA Chuu’.

Of course, this is only hearsay, and nothing is confirmed, and we must trust in the official statement that Chuu just has conflicting schedules, but the prospect of the company being at odds with the face of the group is deeply saddening and fans only wish to see a triumphant return for Chuu with her other members soon.

Though she will be greatly missed, I’m sure the other members will find a way to include Chuu in their performances, if only to comfort fans with some semblance of a presence from the group's starlit darling.

Nevertheless, we know this tour will be magnificent due to the hard work and passion of the members and the crew they work with. Look forward to LOONATHEWORLD, which commences on the 2nd of August in Los Angeles.
