She added that f(x) is not only making a piece of music together. However, being in a group gave her a sense of sisterhood with the other associates. Also, they have stated that they will continue their bond.
The group reunited in August and had performed at the SM Town series of concerts in Tokyo, without the original member’s Victoria, and Suili. Now after the departure of Amber, fans are wondering if the group will continue. However, it’s unclear if Amber’s departure would mean a departure from f(x) too.

Amber will always be remembered as a female idol, for her subversion of K-Pop’s strict beauty standards.
