Super Junior at airport on their way to Jeddah, SA. This was them at the time Kangin posted on instagram that he has decided to leave Super Junior (but still remains under their label and company).
I might post something longer after but for now I can’t think about this without crying my eyes out because I want so much good for him. Seeing the members hug at the airport after reading his instagram post broke me further.
Thank you Kangin for being our “appa bear”, our soft giant, our hoarse sub vocal and for being apart of the family that is Super Junior. We will miss you. We will always love you. Thank you.
kyuhyun: kangin-hyung, how do I get revenge on those who’ve wronged me?
kangin: the best revenge is letting go and living well.
kyuhyun: hey heechul-hyung, how do I get revenge——
[EP. 1] What Happened to Mirae? with Super Junior’s Kangin
A story of a college student named Han Mi Rae who meets a guy named Dong Joon on the last day of her trip to Japan. The drama airs at 5PM KST on EdgeDrama youtube channel.
Hitmaker was a 3 episode show that included Kangin and Jung Joon Young in its cast. The cast did not know who else was going to be on the show with them until the day of filming. The show had a temporary group chat with its cast members. The group chat included Kangin and Jung Joon Young. The group chat was deleted 3 years ago after the show ended.
The rumours were created by knetz and an unprofessional journalist after learning that the initials of some of the group chat members on JJY’s phones were the same as the cast of Hitmaker. However, the “Kim” in JJY’s chatroom is now revealed to be singer Roy Kim, a very close friend of JJY.
ELF asked SM Entertainment for clarification on this matter to put an end to the false rumours that continued to be spread. Label SJ issued a statement after questioning Kangin. Kangin explained that he had a temporary group chatroom with the cast of Hitmaker, which included Jung Joon Young as one of the members. No hidden cameras were filmed or shared in this chat.
On March 28, it was reported that another chatroom with Jung Joon Young included two other singers and a model, who were rumored to be cast members of the JTBC show “Hitmaker.”
The April 2 episode of “Night of Real Entertainment” mentioned these names to be Kangin, Jeong Jinwoon, and Lee Chul Woo.
In response, Label SJ shared the following statement about Kangin:
“Hello, this is Label SJ’s statement regarding Kangin.
It is true that he was temporarily in a chatroom with Jung Joon Young when starring in a variety show with him. The program was three years ago, so the chatroom no longer exists. Although he cannot remember what other cast members posted or had conversations about, Kangin says that he himself did not film or share illegal hidden camera footage at all. He has not been contacted by an [investigative] agency in regards to this, but if a request for cooperation is made, he will actively cooperate.”
