Dal Shabet’s Woohee Talks About “The Unit” Experience And Assures Fans That Group Hasn’t Disbanded

In a recent interview, Dal Shabet’s Woohee shared her experiences on “The Unit” and reassured fans that the group is still together.

Four-member girl group Dal Shabet debuted in 2011 with “Supa Dupa Diva” and released many loved songs, such as “Bling Bling,” “Hit U,” and “Joker.” In December of 2017, Serri, Ah Young, and Subin left Happyface Entertainment, and Woohee, who joined the group one year after the three of them, is currently the only member left at the agency.

Despite that fact, Woohee said, “The members are in different agencies, but Dal Shabet hasn’t disbanded. Sometimes, we fight and swear, but we never break up. We have a good relationship like we’re really sisters. We’re going to come out with a new song to make it up to our supportive fans. We’re making a lot of effort in our respective positions to reunite as Dal Shabet. For the time being, all of our members are going to do their best in their responsibilities.”

Then she added, “It’s unfortunate that we’re not able to do group activities right now. We don’t even want to use the expression that we’re being foolish because all of us haven’t given up yet. Aren’t our senior idols like H.O.T and SECHSKIES showing us examples? We will definitely show a good side of us to the fans.”

During the interview, Woohee also talked about appearing in the idol rebooting show “The Unit.” She said, “At first, I hesitated about appearing on ‘The Unit.’ I was in a complex situation because of the problem with Dal Shabet’s contract. More than anything, we weren’t a group that wasn’t popular, so I felt that if I went on the show, then our group would appear as if it was doomed. I thought it would be fortunate if I did well, but I was afraid that I wouldn’t do well. I was very worried because if my appearance in the ‘The Unit’ ended up with nothing, then I would’ve ruined Dal Shabet’s end.”

Woohee revealed that the reason she was able to make up her mind to go on “The Unit” was because of Matilda’s Haena, who also appeared on the show. Woohee shared, “Haena was also hesitating about appearing on ‘The Unit.’ I told her the situation I was in, and she told me to think about what I wanted to do and to only think about the desire to sing and stand on stage.”

Woohee, who was known for crying a lot during “The Unit,” talked about why she burst into tears at the compliment given by Urban Zakapa’s Jo Hyun Ah. She shared that it was during the time when the other Dal Shabet members had gone to different agencies. She said, “I felt as if I was southbound. Even the fans said we were ‘effectively disbanded,’ and I became upset and depressed that I wouldn’t be able to see my fans anymore.”

During those hard times of low self-confidence, the ones who gave her courage were Laboum’s ZN and Euna Kim who were on the same team as her. Woohee said, “The two of them kept joking with me because I was depressed. Thanks to that, at one point, I realized that I shouldn’t feel this way. I thought it was arrogant of me to feel burdened. If I had come on this show, I shouldn’t have felt burdened. I thought I had a long way to go, and I was able to pull myself together. I could feel Jo Hyun Ah realizing how I felt and comforting me. I was very grateful.”

When asked how she will remember “The Unit,” she said, “I received many things from ‘The Unit.’ I met friends who are walking on the same path as me and became enlightened. I think the memory of being 28 years old will remain as a unforgettable chapter in my life. I’m very grateful to my supporters, mentors, and colleagues, and because of them, I was happy.”

Woohee came in seventh place in “The Unit” finale and will soon be debuting with the nine-member final project girl group.

Dal Shabet’s Subin, Serri, And Ah Young Write Letters To Fans About Leaving Happyface Entertainment

Dal Shabet members Subin, Serri, and Ah Young uploaded handwritten letters for their fans following the announcement that the three members would be leaving Happyface Entertainment.

On December 14, it was revealed that the three Dal Shabet members would be leaving Happyface Entertainment after seven years. On the following day, the members each posted a handwritten letter on their personal Instagram accounts.

Subin addressed her letter to Darling, their official fan club, and wrote, “I debuted in high school and now I’m an adult. It is not enough to say thank you to the Dal Shabet sisters and Happyface family members. I spent the last seven years relying, improving, learning, and sharing a lot with you and I owe you all so much.”

She emphasized that this was not the end of Dal Shabet and asked fans to look forward to her future activities. Subin ended the letter telling fans to be careful not to catch a cold and that she sincerely loves them.

Dal Shabet’s leader Serri also posted a letter. Serri started, “My heart is heavy every time I have to write a handwritten letter. Now, I want to carefully talk about not our end but a new beginning. My contract with Happyface Entertainment ended in October.”

She mentioned the ups and downs in the past and expressed some doubt over whether or not she did a good job as the role of the group’s leader. Above all, she thanked fans for their support that helped her get through her difficulties and stated it was a difficult decision for the three members to move on from their agency.

Serri concluded, “Just because our contract is over, it doesn’t mean Dal Shabet is forever leaving your side. I can’t promise you when we will stand before you, but I want to say someday the four members will be on stage as Dal Shabet and smile with you.”

Ah Young explained to fans that their decision to part ways with Happyface Entertainment was not easy and a decision made after lots of contemplation and discussions. She wrote, “I’m cautious that my letter will come off as a final goodbye for Dal Shabet. It will be hard to show you a Dal Shabet that has always been together like now, but I will work hard on my personal promotions and will always join Dal Shabet when given the chance.”

She also thanked the CEO and staff of Happyface Entertainment as well as the fans for giving her strength. Ah Young concluded, “I will work hard to repay you for your love. Please look forward to it.”

We wish the best of luck to Subin, Serri, and Ah Young on their future endeavors!
