안녕하세요. 강인입니다. 정말 오랜만에 여러분들께 소식을 전하네요. 좋지 않은 소식이라 마음이 무겁지만 고심 끝에 글을 올립니다. 저는 이제 오랜 시간 함께했던 ‘슈퍼주니어’란 이름을 놓으려 합니다. 항상 멤버들에게는 미안한 마음뿐이었습니다 하루라도 빨리 결심하는 것이 맞다고 항상 생각해왔지만 못난 저를 변함 없이 응원해 주시는 분들과 회사 식구들이 마음에 걸려 쉽사리 용기 내지 못했고 그 어떤것도 제가 혼자 결정해서는 안된다는 생각도 했습니다 하지만 제 문제로 인해 겪지 않아도 될 일들을 겪는 멤버들을 지켜보면서 더 이상 늦춰서는 안되겠다는 판단을 하게 되었습니다. 무엇보다 14년이란 오랜 시간 동안 언제나 과분한 사랑을 주신 E.L.F. 여러분들께 가장 죄송한 마음입니다. 많이 늦었지만 슈퍼주니어란 이름을 내려놓고 홀로 걷는 길에도 항상 미안함과 고마움을 가슴에 새기고 나아가겠습니다. 끝까지 저를 배려해 준 멤버들과 회사 식구분들께 정말 감사하다는 말씀 드리고 싶습니다. 언제나 슈퍼주니어가 승승장구하기를 응원하겠습니다. 감사합니다.

‘Hello, this is Kangin. I am greeting you all for the first time in a long time.
My heart feels heavy as it is not a positive news, but I am posting after a lot of consideration. I am now letting go the name of ‘Super Junior’ that has been with me for a long time. I always felt just apologetic to the members.
I always thought that it would be right for me to make the decision earlier than later, but the thought of people who support me unconditionally and our agency family troubled my heart, so i couldn’t not gather the courage easily. I thought that i couldn’t not make decision alone.
However, while watching the members who experience what they shouldn’t have due to my problems. I made the judgment that I cannot delay this further. More than anything, I feel most apologetic towards E.L.F who have always given overwhelming love for 14 years long. I am very late, but i will let go the name of ‘Super Junior and I will have sorry feelings and gratitude engraved in my heart as I continue on my own road.
I really want to express my gratitude to the members and agency family who were considerate towards me until the end. I will also cheering on the success of Super Junior.
