“Hello, we’re DR Music.
First of all, we’d like to thank Lumina for always supporting BLACKSWAN
Young Heun and Judy, who have been members of BLACKSWAN since their debut, are graduating from BLACKSWAN today.
Since it’s such a heart breaking decision, it is difficult for all the staff of DR Music to deliver such a message to you.
We had several discussions with Young Heun and Judy about the future over the past few months, but Young Heun and Judy decided to take a different path to fulfill their new dreams, and we also decided to respect their moves.
They debuted as BLACKSWAN in 2020 and have been working diligently from the beginning until now for the past two years, and now they are returning as Koh Young Heun and Kim Da Hye.
BLACKSWAN has been operating by introduction and graduation system from the initial planning stage. That’s how Gabi and Sriya from the first generation of Cygnus Project recently joined the group. We are happy to continue presenting various talented people from the globe to you through these projects.
BLACKSWAN will be participating schedules with four existing members for a while.
Since it’s an important issue, we sincerely apologize for the delay in updating to make a careful decision and for causing concern to the fans. Lastly, please support the BLACKSWAN members and Young Heun and Judy who graduated.
Youngheun and Judy had been with BLACKSWAN since their debut 2020 album release “Goodbye Rania“.
