Well. Ppl are not sure about the source of the interview the Korean media reported and I'd give Sunye the benefit of the doubt but she has said questionable things before...

Prior to Wonder Girls’ comeback earlier this month, JYP Entertainmentannounced that Sunye and Sohee had officially withdrawn from the band. Sunye is said to be focusing more on her family, while Sohee will be working on other projects. Nevertheless, both the former members have been incredibly supportive of the group during their comeback. Member Yeeun recently said on “Yoo Hee Yeol’s Sketchbook” that Sunye had even come to the music video filming for “I Feel You” with her daughter.
On August 8, Super Junior‘s Donghae posted a shot of himself, fellow member Kangin, and Sunye and her daughter backstage at “Music Core.” He writes as the caption, “Sunye, who was so fun when we were doing activities together and is so kind, and her lovely daughter. ^^ You have to be healthy and happy in the future too ^^”
Super Junior’s Leeteuk also uploaded a photo of himself with Sunye and her daughter, as well as members Donghae, Kangin, Heechul, and Eunhyuk. He writes, “.. So good to see your face!^^ I hope that you will live happily and that your baby will grow up healthy!!!!.. Fighting, Wonder Girls!!!.. Fighting, Super Junior!!..”
Sohee was also spotted at “Music Core” and some photos of her standing in line to get some food have been circulating online. Yeeun confirmed that this was indeed Sohee by posting one of them on her Instagram with the caption, “They’re really long, right? ㅋㅋ Sohee who’s buying ice cream <33 It was delicious <33.”
Hopefully we keep seeing more updates about Sohee and Sunye in the future!
