Following the news of f(x)‘s Amber leaving SM Entertainment just several days ago, Victoria has also decided to leave the company after the group’s 10 year anniversary.
She revealed her decision on her personal Weibo account, stating that she will be moving on to a new journey.
In a blink of an eye, it’s been 10 years. On September 5, 2009, I stood on the stage and made my official debut. I already understood at that time that hard work will always pay off, luck is also important, but chance favors the prepared mind. I only hoped that I could hold onto every chance, leaving no regrets. And now it’s the 10th anniversary, it’s an ending point, and also a starting point.
I’m thankful for everything with S.M for these past 10 years, from now on we will go on in a new way. This is a new start, starting afresh, I’m still me, I will continue to be myself, never forget how I started, and go forward bravely. I will work hard to be a better me, be firm in what I believe in, and will not let my mind be changed easily!
She also thanked all of her her fans for their love, and promised to work hard in the next 10 years too.
Cherish every opportunity! You should cherish everything around you, really, everything! So, thank you for all of your hard work and bravery, which has helped me get everything I have now. Thank you to my family and friends. I am grateful for everyone who has showed me love and I love you all too. I am grateful for all the trust and support I received. I hope I did not fail to live up to your expectations of me, and I will do my best in the future. So, are you ready to stay with me for the next 10 years?
Victoria also released a short video clip through her Victoria Studio, celebrating her 10 year anniversary.
Victoria spent 12 years with SM Entertainment after being scouted in 2007 in Beijing, China. During f(x)’s hiatus, Victoria promoted heavily in China, building her acting career with successful roles in Moonshine and Valentine and Being Lonely.
