Media conglomerate SME, the managing company for girl group Joie, confirmed Choi Eunji has left the group as well as the company earlier today.

Joie, founded with seven members in 2043, achieved mainstream success on a variety of promotions. Reports from within the group claim Choi was disagreeable and the other members requested that she be removed from the group. Neither Choi nor SME have responded to requests for more details on the reason for her departure.

Currently Joie is expected to continue to promote with only six members. Choi has not released any details on her future plans.
