SEOUL, June 23 (Yonhap) -- Choa, lead singer of K-pop group AOA, on Friday denied a news report that she was leaving the team to get married.

Choa announced on her Instagram late Thursday that she was leaving her team, citing long-term insomnia and depression as the reasons. A local news organization also reported that Choa recently made a romantic trip to Japan with a 30-something South Korean businessman.

"I'm not pregnant, nor did I have an abortion or am leaving the group to get married," Choa said in her latest Instagram post.

"The decision to leave the group was made after long and hard deliberation. I wish this isn't discussed as being in connection with another matter," the 28-year-old further explained.

Included in Choa's latest post was a picture of her with her two sisters, apparently in Japan.

"The news report suggested that just the two of us went on a trip, but it was the first overseas vacation between us three sisters."

Choa though admitted that the person involved in her dating rumor was a huge supporting figure to her as of late.

"If it develops into a good relationship, I will honestly admit to it and date the person since being in a romantic relationship isn't a bad thing."

AOA's management agency FNC Entertainment said that the Choa's departure will be decided after sufficient consultations between both sides. The company said it will respect Choa's opinion as much as possible.
