SM Entertainment has released an initial statement after Sulli‘s withdrawal from f(x) was reported by the Korean media just moments ago.
On June 25th, SM Entertainment spoke to Sports Donga and stated, “We’ve come across the article about Sulli. We’re checking things and will release a statement after getting things in order.”
The first reports regarding Sulli’s withdrawal from the girl group and turning to focus on her acting while still under SME was released just hours ago. Sulli debuted as a child actress in 2005 before making her idol debut as part of f(x) in 2009.
With the supposed withdrawal by Sulli, it was then reported that the remaining members – Victoria, Luna, Krystal, and Amber – would continue their comeback preparations without her. Their comeback is aimed for September.
