She will not be taking a full break from her career however, as she promises to continue with her official blog and radio program while abroad as long as she is able to do so.

She says in her blog post,

“I’ve explored the ways of expressions. I’ve loved that time and it’s still the same. That’s why I started thinking about my own life and growth, learning about the size and extent of the world every day. Then I was filled with a thought, ‘I want to see and know about things more and more!’ So I have decided to go to England for about a year. I will learn the language, feel the British stage plays directly, and meet a lot people. Thorough a life in a different world, I will do my best to come back as a new myself in the spring of 2021."
