Rowoon has shared his candid thoughts on his departure from the K-pop group SF9, where he has been a member for the past seven years, in a heartfelt handwritten letter.

On September 18th, Rowoon addressed his departure from SF9 through a handwritten letter posted on the group’s official fan community. He wrote, “I’m mustering the courage to take on something new.”

Previously, FNC Entertainment had announced, “Although all the members have renewed their contracts, SF9 plans to take another leap forward as an 8-member group, with Rowoon choosing to depart to focus on personal activities, including acting.”

Rowoon expressed, “There were also moments of frustration, where I was unable to clarify every little misunderstanding one by one. I believed that someday, my sincerity would get through, so I dedicated myself to the immediate tasks at hand.” He also stated, “Of course, I understand that I may receive as much criticisms as I’ve received interest and support, but I suppose I’m a bit soft. Depending on the situation, one needs the courage to confront and dispel misunderstandings when they arise, but in the past, I was always busy concealing.”

He extended his apologies to fans who might have been hurt by the sudden news of his departure, saying, “To those fans who felt hurt and disappointed by my complacent attitude, I am genuinely sorry.” He added, “If you sensed a change in me and found it unfamiliar, you must have also definitely felt upset that I hid away. I sincerely apologize.”

Furthermore, he expressed his determination to embark on a new journey in the field of acting, stating, “Please stand by me as 27-year-old Kim Seok Woo (Rowoon’s real name) takes on a life for which he can take full responsibility. I will remain true to the person everyone remembers.”
