Super Junior Member Kangin Announces He Is Leaving the Group After 14 Years

Super Junior member Kangin is leaving the group.

The 34-year-old South Korean boy band member made the announcement on his Instagram on Thursday (July 11).

“Hello. This is Kangin. It’s really been a long time since I’ve delivered news to you all. My heart is heavy as the news I have is not good news, but after a long debate, I am writing to you. As of this moment, I plan to let go of the name ‘Super Junior‘, a name I had for a very long time,” he wrote.

“I’ve always felt nothing but feelings of apology toward my members. I’ve always felt that I needed to come to this decision as soon as possible, but due to the kind hearts of those who cheer me on unchangingly as well as my label’s staff despite my faults, I was not able to summon the courage, and I also felt that I was not in a situation where I could decide anything blindly on my own. However, due to my own problems, I had to watch my members suffer misfortunes that they should not have had to face, and I’ve come to the decision that I cannot delay it any longer. More than anything, I am full of apology toward E.L.F for the overflowing love that you always sent me for the past 14 years. This may be too late, but even as I let go of the name ‘Super Junior‘ and begin walking on my own, I will always remember these feelings of gratitude and apology.”

“I want to sincerely say thank you to my members and my label’s staff for respecting me until the end. I will cheer for the success of Super Junior forever. Thank you,” he added. (English translation via Soompi.)

Kangin was a member of Super Junior since 2005, and was on hiatus since 2017 following allegations of an alleged intoxicated assault.
