ChoA made her first public appearance after leaving AOA at a fan signing event.
Late last month, FNC Entertainment announced that ChoA made the decision to leave AOA.
“Hello, this is FNC Entertainment.

Shortly after, ChoA marked the beginning of her solo activities by attending her first ever solo fan signing event.
The event was hosted by Ellesse, an Italian sportswear brand that ChoA signed an exclusive modeling contract with.
She appeared to be smiling and happy as she interacted with her fans during their turn.
When one fan serenaded her with Kim Jong Seo’s “Beautiful Restriction”, ChoA reportedly began crying.
The event continued shortly after, and she was back to her usual self.
