Back in October, it was revealed that singer Park Jiyeon was negotiating a comeback as a solo artist with her Chinese agency while work with T-ARA was currently on hold as the members all have busy personal schedules.
Since then, Jiyeon did a live stream on social media and fans have been circulating the information about her comeback. They report that her company isn’t allowing her to let her promote on music shows and her album is limited to only 2000 copies that are available for purchase from a Chinese retailer. They have not promoted her new album at all.
Jiyeon’s company isn’t letting her promote on music shows and they made it so her album is limited to only 2000 copies from a chinese retailer, and there won’t be anymore until sometime in 2020. They also haven’t promoted her new mini at all and she’s sad and apologizing to fans https://t.co/zNFAnrrpmX
