Lee Hae In posted a message on her Instagram account on the morning of July 2, along with a new profile picture with a pure vibe. She wrote:

“Hello, I’m Hae In. I’m here today because I have a news to tell you!
It’s just that I’ve been working with the The Groove Company.
I’m working on my project to debut in the second half of this year!
I always thank my family for being with me till the very end of my long wait.
Lastly, to the fans who waited for me more than anyone else, I love you.
I’d like to say thank you more than anyone else.
I’ll always be a Hae In who doesn’t forget her earnestness.
Please look forward to it!”

Lee Hae In competed in ‘Produce 101‘ Season 1 in 2016 and worked in the project group I.B.I. The following year, she appeared on ‘Idol School’ and tried again on a survival program, but failed to make her debut. Since then, as ‘Idol School’ has been embroiled in a controversy over its result manipulation, Lee Hae In has expressed her position and was empathized by the public.
