She’s gotta do what makes her happy, and tbh it’s starting to seem like leaving SM and having the freedom to create what she wants to create and having more support is the only way she’s going to get there.
I want f(x) to stay together forever, but the reality is that no groups last forever. I suspected she wasn’t happy for months now, and it’s all making sense.
SM just isn’t the place for her anymore. She deserves better, and while I do hope she can reach some kind of compromise or agreement with them, I won’t be surprised if she doesn’t.
Just continue to support her during this time. That’s pretty much all we can do while we wait.
don’t have time for you” Every year, I would stay at home for weeks
because nothing was “coming in.” Instead of waiting, for the past 5
years I’ve been writing my own songs, making my own albums, producing,
directing, and/or editing my videos, making concepts and styling,
writing proposals and presenting marketing plans, and even looking for
my own jobs, all so that I could do what I love for my fans. Even after 5
years, I’m given the same answer. They still tell me I’m not good
enough. What more do I have to do?
This hurts me very much and makes me really upset. YOU ARE good enough. Please, never let anyone bring you down. You deserve all the love and happiness in this world.
God I’m so annoyed on Amber’s behalf. After all she has gone through, after all those times she had to find courage, she gets told that she is not ENOUGH?
Honestly this is so irresponisble on SM’s behalf. Don’t debut a group if you’re not able to maintain them. “For the past 5 years”. That means that all of this shit started only a few years after their debut, when f(x) was still in the prime of their career.
During the last five years, SM has debuted TWO other groups, one being NCT with a shitton of members. I said it when they were debuting and I will say it again: IF YOU CAN’T MAINTAIN THE GROUPS THAT ARE STILL ACTIVE UNDER YOUR AGENCY THEN DON’T DEBUT NEW ONES.
Because “we don’t have time for you” is one of the shittiest arguments ever made. Amber said it herself: she wrote songs herself, proposed ideas for the marketing herself, made her own concepts and directed her own videos. She can literally promote herself and you STILL don’t have time? What more time is there to spend to her, she ALREADY DID everything.
And I can’t stand seeing Amber hurt. To me, Amber is such an important message. I said regularly during the years but Amber is the person who made me realize who I am and gave me the courage to change my clothes into the androgynous style I wanted to persue. She gave me the courage to cut my hair short. She made me more open-minded and she made me smile more times than I can count. She pulled me out of depression, she and f(x) were the reasons I wasn’t suicidal and to see her being hurt once more by the same company, it breaks my heart. It infuriates me.
Amber doesn’t deserve this, she doesn’t deserve to feel like she isn’t good enough. Amber deserves to be heard and to be taken seriously as a musician and as a person. Don’t give up Amber, MeU’s will always support you 💜
