And Then There was..... NONE

And Then There was….. NONE

Well Well Well, if it isn’t another Gen 2 group, DEAD AT ITS OWN HANDS. Perhaps more significant than just a KPop group breaking, I mean f(x) was never THAT big of a group compare to others, is f(x) reflecting the messy political state that Asia has gotten itself into. Even more, it probably paints the best picture that sometimes group chemistry “on live” are different from group chemistry “offline”.

Now who’s f(x)? Well simply it’s one of the bigger KPop group of the late 2000s and mid 2010s. I actually have a page for them under KPop biographies that will probably be completed around winter break, I am SURE OF THAT. F(x) stands testament to US ASIANS LOVE FOR MATH, well that’s what I would like to think because I have no idea why F(x) is name F(x) (I think it does have something to do with math). Anyways they are one of the more “diversify” groups having 5 members, or 4 depends on how you look at it.

1) Victoria
2) Krystal
3) Luna
4) Amber
5) Sulli

Although yes they are all asians, Amber is from Taiwan (she was born in the US), Victoria is from China, Krystal is from america, and the rest are korean. They have been active for well over a decade and actually a week ago was their 10th Anniversary, in which funnily SM did nothing going as far as to reject MeU (f(fandoms)) from displaying ads even though they paid for it (dedicated fans with lots of cash it looks like). They are not really well known because after Red Velvet debuted in 2014 to cover up scandals in SNSD and F(Sulli) leaving, the f(x) kettle was pushed to the back burner and absolutely turned pitch black. Most members went and pursued solo work such as: Victoria who became a semi superstar in China, Amber who went back and forth from the US and Korea to release songs and do collabs, Krystal who starred in cult hit dramas but never found that one hit and now is traveling, Sulli who well uh…. acts and just release a song, and finally Luna who has a flop solo career with none of her releases ever gaining that much attention. Luna is probably the saddest tale in all of KPop. You think your BTS members are talented in vocals and dance? Nah Luna is consistently considered the BEST Kpop vocalist (well we are not counting boy groups vocals. Still Jungkook can’t beat her). You think TWICE, and Blackpink are talented vocalist, hell no even SNSD can’t beat Luna in vocals. Yet Luna became the least known member of f(x) simply because she was consider its ugliest and her flop solo career sees albums that barely/never stratched 1000 DIGITAL album sales (apparently if your song is listen to like 18 times that consider “1 sale”). There was hype for an f(x) reunion when 3 of the members came back for a performance at SM annual concert back in August but alas that never bear fruit since Amber decided to leave SM on f(x)’s 10 anniversary. WOW AMBER BREAKING UP WITH “F(X)” ON HER BIRTHDAY. That’s pretty savage, I hope I never feel that feeling if I am ever lucky enough to land a girlfriend (DAB). This was follow soon after by Victoria who said she was leaving too (and I will get into this unsavy Song Qian in a short minute) and now Luna has declared her leave. That only leaves Krystal (Sulli departed years ago), whose vocals are not nearly strong enough to carry a group by herself. Krystal also said that a while back that she will never perform again unless other members were with her so that’s basically means she’s out.

(Amber says GOOD DAY!)

This has probably been long brewing to be honest, since F(x) team chemistry is not that strong, maybe due to their leader and her wildin outspoken political point of views. Victoria is a $@$!# to F(x). All the members of F(x) essentially posted how much they miss “F(x)” on its 10th anniversary. Now if the members “fake missing f(x)” or not, the fact of the matter remains that Victoria did NOT post anything. Instead on F(x)’s 10th anniversary, she posted a video on Weibo that basically celebrated her 10 year anniversary in the entertainment industry…..

without ever mentioning F(x) once. Not only that for all their bonding on screen, it is clear that F(x)’s Victoria don’t give two fucks about her group, basically not making an appearance in August at SM concert claiming that “she’s busy” and never really did anything with the group ever since she return to China to do stuff. Even Sulli who left a long time ago, seems to at least be on close terms with everyone.

Victoria is also intensely nationalistic, identify as a chinese citizen probably first and fore-most. She was one of the idols that actually voice support for China landing some of its police in Hong Kong to take care of the protestors and not only that, one of the rarer idols that actually voice support for Hong Kong police. Maybe because it is due to her politics rampage that actually makes her not care at all about her group the instant she has a “decent” solo career somewhere else. Whatever Victoria show on screen, how she cares for her group, obviously does not and maybe that’s the biggest reasons why there are a couple of songs just feature 3 members of the group instead of 4.

It is kind of sad that even Asian Entertainmnet Industry, is plague with political problems. RIP To Algebra, you will be missed.
