Thank you for always supporting me and SunSaeSu!
SURPRISE! Vega β is reviving!
I told you we'd come back! And you all doubted me =3=;;
I'm really happy ... I have no words.
I really loved Vega β, and the disbandment really shocked all of us and really saddened me.
But now, we're coming back! Guys, we're come back!
We'll be stronger than ever!
Although I feel a bit uncomfortable with the addition of new members, I guess I can get used to it ;;
I'm really excited to come back as Vega β! Look forward to our redebut!
