Important announcement from ONE★STAR
Thank you very much for supporting ONE★STAR for a long time.
At this time, after the concert that is going to be held in June, our guitarist Hie is going to retire from the band for personal reasons.
Since the start of ONE★STAR we have been active as a five-member group, but even after considering the future of ONE★STAR, Hie himself came to the decision that activity would be difficult.
With regards to this we would like to deeply apologize to the fans and everyone involved for causing troubles and a lot of confusion.
Moreover, we wish for everyone to watch over the future ONE★STAR as well as Hie warmly.
All the members including Hie are working hard until his last live, so we would like to kindly ask the fans to support us.
Please, from now on as well, treat ONE★STAR well.
