Oh, No! Is It True That f(X) is Going To Disband?

f(X) is a four-member girl-group that debuted in 2009, under SM Entertainment. One of the group’s members, Sulli, left f(X) in 2015, leaving Victoria as the leader of the group, Amber as the rapper, Luna as the main vocal, and Krystal as the lead vocal. They debuted with a song called La Cha Ta in September, 2009.

Since their debut, f(X) has already released 4 albums, 1 video album in Japan, and 2 extended plays. As the hoobae, or junior group, for SHINee, Super Junior, and Girls Generation, f(X) has also collaborated with their sunbae, or senior, groups by releasing the song Lollipop, featuring SHINee in 2011, and were, themselves, featured in a song called Oops! that was released as part of Super Junior’s album in 2012.

f(X) has had plenty of hits, such as Hot Summer, Pinocchio, Rum Pum Pum, Electric Shock, etc. All the same, their latest comeback was almost 4 years ago. The song was called 4 Walls, and represents all four members, and it was released in 2015 on an album with the same title. After the album’s release, all members of the group got too busy with their own individual schedules, and couldn’t get back to the studio.

Victoria began acting in movies and dramas in China, and also recorded some songs that released in her home country in 2018. Amber started to release her first solo album in 2015, and also has her own YouTube channel. Luna was acting on stage in musical theatre, but she also did a solo comeback in 2018. The last member, Krystal, has been busy acting in dramas and filming for Commercial Films.

True or Not, f(x) is Going To Disband?

Because the group hasn’t been active in quite awhile, f(X) fans are worried about the group’s future. A lot of rumors spread that were being disbanded since they hadn’t had any activity as a group for nearly 4 years. But of course, MeU (fandom name of f(x)’s fans) are not going to believe it. They even said that SM Entertainment, the agency of f(X) isn’t the type of agency that will let their group disband.

There was also this post on Amber’s official Instagram account, which made fans speculate that it could be related to f(X) being on hiatus for such a long time. In the comment section, Luna posted a comment, saying ‘Koala (a nickname for Amber given by Luna), cheer up! You know I love you, right? We’re going to be okay~‘.

Then again, it’s not like all the f(X) members are having an argument that makes them unable to get along. It’s just their individual schedules haven’t matched each other, which makes it hard to prepare a comeback.

Even so, they still managed to keep in touch in spite of their busy schedules. In 2017, when Krystal was filming for a drama, Amber went to the shoot location and shows some support.

This photo was also posted on Krystal’s official Instagram account, saying ‘it’s 뚜덩이 not 두떵이’ on the caption, as she was correcting the written hangul in the big paper that Amber was holding.

Amber and Luna also frequently post selfies like these on their own official Instagram accounts. They look like real siblings.

It’s hard for Victoria to meet the girls since she has a lot of work in China. Even when their manager got married in 2017, all the members reunited on the wedding, except Victoria. It was too bad that the leader couldn’t be with the girls and their manager on his happy day.

The fact that they still keep in touch and support each other could mean that the group isn’t going to disband. Yet.

In 2017, Luna once said in an interview that it was so hard to let go of the group (to disband) since it has been over 8 years. Thus, they still wanted to keep it as perfect as possible even if it was going to be their last album. Krystal also said in 2018 interview, “I’ve never had any thought to leave f(X). Not even once.”

The group, which went into their ninth year in September of 2018, shared a thankful message to MeU.

A picture of Krystal, looking casual, holding a message that says, “Suddenly it’s 9 year anniversary 🙂 I’m so thankful and I love you, MeU that I can depend on!”

It’s so good to see them celebrate their 9-year anniversary, it seems like proof that the group is still alive and isn’t going to disband. Even though they didn’t celebrate it together, at least they still remember MeU, the ones who always support them and wait for them to comeback, whenever it will be.

Member’s Solo Activity

We talked about f(X) members being busy with their individual schedule. What are their individual schedules, anyway? Well, let’s take a look, from the oldest to the youngest, shall we?

Victoria

f(X)’s leader is currently doing promotions in China. She also debuted as an actress in a Taiwanese drama called When Love Walked In in 2012, and started acting for Chinese television in 2015, in a drama called Beautiful Secret. She also starred in a movie called My New Sassy Girl, a sequel for the popular Korean movie called My Sassy Girl, with the Korean actor Cha Tae-hyun.

Along with acting, she also made some appearances in Chinese reality shows like Up Idol, Hot Blood Dance Crew and The Next Top Bang. She became part of the jury in The Next Top Bang, along with Kris, the former member of EXO. Tao, her former junior in SM Entertainment, just like Kris, was also partnered with her in recent photoshoots. As if that weren’t enough, in 2018, she made a solo debut in China by releasing a song called Roof on Fire.

Amber

Amber released some single albums while f(X) has been inactive. The songs are White Noise and Countdown, and were released in 2018. She’s also been busy with her solo debut in United States. She made a solo comeback with the song Lower, along with Luna, as their agency project, SM Station on YouTube in the early part of 2018.

Talking about YouTube, Amber also had her own personal YouTube Channel called What The Pineapple, where she shared good content with her fans. She’s also been known to share her thoughts on various topics on her channel, as well.

Luna

Just like Amber, Luna has also released solo albums while f(X) is inactive. She was part of a collaboration, by featuring in the comeback song of JYP soloist Bernard Park, also known as Nak-joon, Still, in July, 2018.

She’s also done some live performances as well, such as Rebecca, Rudolf, and Autant en emporte le vent (Gone with The Wind). One of her projects was called The Last Kiss, where she starred along with Leo of VIXX. She once said in an interview that as she got more roles in musicals, she became more and more insecure.

She also said that she was struggling between gaining some weight, which is desirable for a musical actress, or to maintain her slim figure, since she’s an idol, after all.

Krystal

Krystal has been pursuing her acting career by starring in a number of dramas since f(X)’s latest comeback in 2015. She’s played as Lee Bo-na in the SBS drama called The Heirs. In 2016, she made an appearance in a popular drama called The Legend of Blue Sea, in

Episode 1. She also starred in a drama called The Bride of The Water God, as the second lead female character, the water goddess Moo-ra. After that finished, she starred in Prison Playbook from 2017 until early in 2018, where she played Ji-ho, the ex-girlfriend of Je-hyuk (portrayed by Park Hae-soo).

In September 2018, her next project, an OCN drama called The Player, was released. She played the female lead, with the actor Song Seung-heon as the male lead.

Let’s take a look at how the members are doing by seeing pictures of them on social media. So glad that four of them have their own Instagram accounts. If you haven’t followed them yet, go follow them, quickly!

When Will They Comeback?

Since f(X) doesn’t sound like they’re going to disband, you must have this question in mind: when will SM Entertainment give them a comeback? To be honest, it’s still a mystery when f(X) might make a comeback. The members are explicitly saying that they won’t be disbanded, but as of yet, there hasn’t been any news for an upcoming f(X)’s comeback. You can see that all the members continue to be busy with individual pursuits..

But still, it’s not like they don’t want to comeback. In an interview, Krystal apologized to fans since they haven’t made a comeback for more than three years. Amber also replied to one hater’s comment on her Instagram saying that she truly feels sorry, and explaining why they’re not making a comeback yet.

allkpop.com

Luna once hinted to fans that she will come back to f(X) later, on  VLive, saying “Solo comeback after two years, soon f(X)’s comeback too.”

entertain.naver.com

She made that remark in April, 2018, let’s just hope that what she said was true. As Amber said, making a comeback isn’t an easy thing to arrange, so maybe they need to take some time to come back with a really big hit song. Even though we have to wait for a long time, we will always support f(X) no matter what! Also, let’s support them with their individual careers.

Psst, here’s a bonus picture of the four of them together that will make you miss them more! Amber posted this picture on their 9th anniversary. Amber is missing the girls, and so are we! Let’s just hope that we don’t have to wait too long for their comeback.
