Hello this is Sungmin.
Due to several situation, I’m here to greet you guys after a long time.
Firstly, I’m sorry for worrying the fans.
There has been talks that weren’t nice these days because of me and because these are things that I cannot judge and take action on my own.. I’m sorry for giving such a late reply. Because of that, I’ve always felt sad and sorry about it.
Looking back from the process of preparing for my marriage, from a position as an idol who has grown from the love from many fans for over 10 years, it seems like I’ve disregard the fact that I should not (have handled it) in a general way.
To the fans that felt hurt because I didn’t manage to give more careful consideration and a truthful position at the time when it is needed, and the people who felt betrayed from the baseless misunderstanding and rumors which grew bigger like a snowball, I feel that there should have been a more active communication (between us).
Even though they are activities that I’ve wanted to do with the members that I’ve anticipated so much everyday while I was in the army, with the heart of earnestly hoping that this important album for Super Junior will do well, I’ve decided not to participate in the activities this time.
As a member of Super Junior, I want Super Junior to receive love for a long time. In order for that, with the current situation of my ongoing controversy, I think it is the right decision to think of Super Junior first and I think that me not participating in the album this time is for the sake of the team’s path. It is an important comeback for everyone this time round so I don’t want to make it as situation that because of me, our ELF will not be to support us with all their hearts.
Sorry to the fans who gave me love and supported me but I think I need to have more time and work harder.
ELF, I hope that you will support Super Junior’s comeback this time round with all your hearts and please continue to watch us.
