Bad news for MeUs out there; apparently f(x) member Krystal (크리스탈) recently shared that she “has less interest in singing and dancing anymore” – implying that she is giving up her career as an idol.
In an interview with Urbanlike magazine, she explained her decision on leaving the idol world, “I have spent a lot of time thinking about what side of myself that I should show as a solo entertainer. I like a lot of things so I wasn’t sure what I should do. I don’t want to sing or dance anymore because I’ve already shown that while being a part of f(x)”.
Apparently the 25-year-old bombshell’s shocking statement in the interview strengthens speculations that all of her fellow members will go their separate ways, after a decade since their official debut.
Krystal debuted with f(x) back in September 2009, alongside fellow members Victoria, Amber, Luna and Sulli, under SM Entertainment with their single “LA chA TA”. Since then, they have released 4 studio albums and 2 extended plays (EP). The quintet ensemble are known for songs like “Hot Summer”, “Electric Shock” and “Red Light”.
Member Sulli departed from the group in August 2015 before they released their last album “4 Walls” in October 2015. Since then, they’ve been going on an indefinite hiatus. Their last scheduled activity together was during SMTOWN concert in August this year, with Krystal, alongside fellow members Luna and Amber, performed their biggest hits.
Whatever their decision is, we wish Krystal and fellow f(x) members all the best for their future endeavours!
