The tutor even added that they were proud to see the former NMIXX member and her friend, who was revealed to be Fifty Fifty’s Saena, accomplish great things. The tutor wrote (as per translation via Koreaboo):
“And should we start by congratulating your friend, who will be carrying the baton and starting her new life as an idol? Seeing the miracles that you both have accomplished makes me think of you guys often… Now that I think of it, I realize the person that should be thankful is me. Thank you for the cool memories we made together. I love my babies! I will also do my best, ^^”
