Since Han Seon Hwa’s departure from Secret in 2016 to pursue an acting career, speculation of discord has surrounded the group. While Song Ji-eun, Jung Hyo Seong, and Jung Ha-na have maintained contact and frequently meet, Han Seon Hwa’s absence from these private gatherings has not gone unnoticed.

Even during significant events, such as their 14th debut anniversary last October, Han Seon Hwa’s absence was evident. Jung Hyo Seong posted photos celebrating the milestone with Song Ji-eun and Jung Ha-na, sans Han Seon Hwa, further fueling rumors of tension within the group.

Secret debuted in 2009 with their digital single “I Want You Back,” quickly gaining popularity. However, the dynamics changed in 2016 when Han Seon Hwa left to focus on acting. By 2021, the remaining members had parted ways with their agency, TS Entertainment, marking the end of their active presence in the K-pop industry.

Fans are once again buzzing with theories and speculations about the group’s internal relationships. “It’s sad to see Han Seon Hwa not included,” one fan commented. “I hope they can resolve whatever differences they have,” another added.

Meanwhile, Girl group SECRET has made a powerful comeback with their 3rd mini album, “Poison,” transforming from a cute image to a femme fatale style. Despite a year-long hiatus, they feel happier and more upgraded as a group.

They addressed comparisons with rival group SISTAR, attributing it to their similar group sizes but emphasizing their differences and the motivation rivalry brings.

On recent girl group bullying rumors, SECRET acknowledged fights among members but stressed the importance of cooperation and noted that their practice of sharing a room helps resolve conflicts quickly. SECRET’s new album features a ‘sexy spy’ concept, showcasing a bold new image. They expressed gratitude for their fans’ support and hard work on their new project.
