f(x) is always one
Furthermore, Luna revealed that she still considers herself an f(x) member, even if she is no longer with SM Entertainment.

Some have suggested that this is a similar situation to Girls’ Generation, where Tiffany, Seohyun, and Sooyoung are no longer under SM Entertainment, but still consider themselves members.
F(x) has previously stated that for them, f(x) symbolizes the sisterhood they share.
The members have consistently expressed their friendship, with Krystal and Amber even surprising Luna at her first solo concert this year.
Even when she ended her contract with SM Entertainment, Luna still celebrated f(x)’s tenth anniversary with a special cake.
In the meantime, the members are making their own decisions for their solo careers.
Luna is currently acting in the musical Mamma Mia! and has told fans that she plans on focusing on more activities for this year.
She has stated that she plans on releasing her self-composed song “Please Comfort Me” and potentially a new album as well.
Krystal is set to act in her first lead role in Shouts Of A Father. Amber and Victoria are also set to release their solo albums soon.
Fans can be sure to look forward to more musical projects from the f(x) members.
