Thank you.

Rowoon also posted a handwritten letter on the fan cafe, revealing his thoughts. He said,

Hello, it’s Rowoon. I had a lot of thoughts about what word to start with.
To be honest, it’s a bit scary to write again after a long time. I’ve been challenging myself and being stricter with myself as I engage in activities and try new things, and I think I’ve become a little more accustomed to it.
There were times when I couldn’t solve big and small misunderstandings one by one, and there were days when I focused on what I had to do right away, thinking that someday my sincerity would be conveyed.
I understand that there can be hate as much as attention and support, but I think I may be a little sensitive.  Sometimes, when misunderstandings arise, there is a need for courage to stand up and say it’s not true, but in the past, I always hid. If there are fans who have been hurt and felt upset by my careless attitude, I am truly sorry.
If you felt unfamiliar with me in a different way, it’s probably because I hid myself. I sincerely apologize for that.
I have been grateful for every precious memory and activity over the past 7 years.
As I look back on my life and write this, I am filled with gratitude. This is also thanks to all of you. I will be 27 this year and I want to try new challenges.
I was really unsure of how to talk and where to start, but I want to gather the courage to convey that I want to take on new challenges.
Please watch over Kim Seok Woo, who will be 27, so that he can live a life he can take responsibility for. I will be the same person you remember.
I sincerely thank all of you. I would be grateful if you could watch over me with a loving gaze.

Rowoon debuted as an idol with SF9 in 2016. Since 2017, he has expanded his career as an actor, appearing in various dramas.

SF9 will continue their activities in the music industry without Rowoon. Many people express their regret about the absence of the popular member but also show their support for Rowoon’s dreams.
