Is Sulli really ditching f(x)? Last week, reports from various media outlets suggested that Sulli is planning to make her leave from f(x) to focus on her acting career. This fuels the long-running rumor about Sulli's departure which stemmed from her sudden hiatus from group activities last year.
SM Entertainment denied the reports in a statement on Thursday, saying that the allegations are groundless and based on unverified information. However, the agency made a rather alarming revelation as they said "Sulli's departure from f(x) has not yet been decided," which leaves room for speculations that perhaps Sulli and SM Entertainment are indeed working things out regarding her exit. Both camps are supposedly still discussing matters, according to K-Pop Herald.
The initial reports claimed that Sulli is planning to foster her acting career. She's starred in drama series since 2005, and have worked her way up to the movie department with popular flicks such as "The Pirates" and "Fashion King".
The agency also added that they are planning a comeback for f(x) in September, and rumor has it that the group will resume with just four members. Following their "Red Light" promotions, Victoria, Amber, Krystal, and Luna were mostly immersed in solo activities for the most of 2014-2015. Sulli, on the other hand, made her only public appearance in 2014 during the "Fashion King" promotions.
Sulli's recent status with f(x) and SM Entertainment have always been in question. While some state that her absence from the group was due to health rumors, some pointed at her confirmed relationship with Dynamic Duo's Choiza as one of the reasons for her falling out of the group.
