Sulli’s f(x) bandmate Amber Liu, who left the K-pop girl group this year to focus on her solo career, announced on Twitter that she is putting her upcoming activities on hold.
As of this writing, the other f(x) members including Victoria, Luna, and Krystal have yet to issue a statement regarding Sulli’s sudden passing, but fans have left Instagram comments showing their support for the members.
It was also reported that f(x)’s labelmates Super Junior postponed the V Live broadcast for their “Time_Slip” comeback.
SM Entertainment, f(x)’s label, issued a statement sent to reporters where they said, “We are sorry to tell everyone the sorrowful and sad news. Sulli has left us.”
