After a long and vaguely explained absence from her group, SM Entertainment has finally announced that forgotten f(x) member/urban legend Sulli will be leaving the group to pursue a career in acting.
Considering that SM didn’t even bother to refute rumors of Sulli’s departure from the group back in June, this isn’t exactly earth-shattering news.
One has to hand it to Sulli; if her plan was to hold out and basically force SM Entertainment to bend to her will, then she deserves all the Orson Welles gifs in the world.
“After negotiating with Sulli, who is currently taking a break, about her future activities, we have decided to respect her wishes, and she’ll be leaving f(x) and focusing on her acting.”
f(x) will continue to soldier on as a four member group of Luna, Krystal, Victoria and everyone’s favorite rapper Amber. Truthfully, I don’t think this is a huge loss for f(x) as it’s not like Sulli offered a ton to the group musically. Her colorful use of Chinese curse words will surely be missed though.
