Alleged Super Junior member, Kim Kibum, has announced his departure from the group as well as SM Entertainment with an instagram post.
For the 10 years that Super Junior has been around, Kim Kibum has dodged in and out of relevance. Kim Kibum IS and WAS a mystery wrapped in an enigma and slapped with a big ol’ confusing bow. I never, and still don’t understand, what his role in the group was, and why it was so difficult for him to make the transition from idol to actor when half his agency has successfully done so. Especially since he
left went on hiatus from the group to focus on acting, immediately following the massive success of their song “Sorry Sorry,” when the group, and his, stock was at an all time high.
He was someone who never really spoke up or out, who no one ever really talked about or asked about, and now the tie, that I’m not sure was ever really there, has finally been cut, and there’s no explanation.
Even though I am still incredibly confused, and slightly mad at how everything has played out, whatever this new life is, I wish you good luck with it, Kibum.
