Another day, another bad news received by MeUs (f(x) stans) out there.
Just weeks after f(x) member Krystal hinted of quitting from being an idol, it was announced that fellow member Amber (엠버) (刘逸云) has decided to leave their home label SM Entertainment.
The 27-year-old took to her personal Instagram account to announce the surprising news. She posted a heartfelt letter written by her in both Korean and English language. The letter’s read as followed (via Soompi):
“Hey everyone, I would like to announce my contract with SM Entertainment has ended today, and I have decided to part ways with the company. From the bottom of my heart, I’d like to thank everyone who believed in me and have been patient with me all these years. I can’t wait to show you what’s in store in this next chapter of my career. Again and always, thank you!! Love, peace, and Boba –Llama.”
Amber joined SM Entertainment back in 2008 after she passed the company’s global audition. She then debuted with f(x) in September 2009. Just this past month, Amber and her fellow members – Luna and Krystal reunited and performed together as a trio for the first time in 4 years.
In case if you’ve missed f(x), here is a compilation of their past hit songs. Check the full clip below (Video by MBCKpop):
It’s clear that the artist wants to move into a different direction than her label. It’ll be interesting to what she’s planning to cook up. We wish Amber all the best in her future career!
