To all my wonderful and caring fans, thank you from the bottom of my heart for the birthday wishes. I will never forget those who have waited for my return and I will try my hardest to make those of you proud and hope that we will be able to spend more time together. I love you all and thank you once again.^^
Kibum-ah I’ll always support you!! I sincerely hope you will be happier in a good place~ I hope the time we were together as Super Junior will last as good memories for a long time..^^
You’ve suffered. In the near future when we all gather, come (join us). I will give you birthday punches.
*Birthday punches are a playful way of hitting a friend who is having birthday.
Kim Kibum, originally a member of Super Junior, made an unexpected announcement less than an hour ago on his Instagram account. He uploaded a picture of himself and captioned it, “2015 august 18th. Finished with S.M. ent. Lets begin my new life…!! 그동안 함께했던 SM 감사합니다.” The Korean translates to “For the time we were together, SM, thank you.”
Kim Kibum was originally a member of the SM Entertainment boy group Super Junior, but has not promoted with the band for six years. He has instead pursued an acting career in China and Korea, being on an indefinite hiatus from the idol group.
Back in July, member Eunhyuk had said on a variety show that Super Junior would welcome back Kim Kibum anytime, but now it seems Kim Kibum’s return is unlikely with this announcement.
There has been no official statement from SM Entertainment. We will keep you updated.
SM Entertainment confirms that Kim Kibum’s contract with the agency has ended. It also asked for the public’s continued support for Kim Kibum.
2015 august 18th. Finished with S.M. ent. Lets begin my new life…!! For the time we were together, SM, thank you.
*Photo with Kibum was taken 5 years ago
Super Junior‘s Heechul has taken a look back at the past by sharing a picture taken with his fellow groupmate, Kibum.
On October 12, the idol uploaded the photo on his Instagram along with the message, “Wow, it’s a photo from 11 years ago. I was 21 years old, Kibum was 17. This was taken when we were trainees.”
“We are so handsome that even my lips hurt while saying so. Our parents must have danced happily after giving birth to us. Parents! Thank you! My face! I love you,” Heechul added, staying true to his charming and witty personality.
In the picture, the two members are looking cool but friendly as they pose for the camera. For many ELFs, the nostalgic photo has brought back memories of Super Junior’s early days, and some fans have expressed their curiosity over the whereabouts of Kibum.
