In the midst of rumors going around about f(x) Victoria leaving SM Entertainment, Victoria put the noise to bed with an Instagram post on May 29, in which she’s flashing her SMTown ID Card, with the caption, “Heading into work for the first time in a while~”
This was followed on May 30 with an announcement of a Chinese workshop for Victoria, the same as what the agency put together for EXO‘s Lay.
According to Sina Entertainment, SM Entertainment strongly denied the rumors of Victoria leaving the agency, and said, “Victoria has never asked the company to cancel her contract, nor does she have plans to leave.”
SM continued, “In accordance with SM’s glocalization policy, we’ve decided on a flexible workshop system, and just as with EXO Lay, we will be moving forward with Chinese activities for Victoria with her own workshop.” They then clarified that the workshop is under SM, and that SM will maintain exclusive management rights to Victoria.
“We will do everything in our power to support and promote Victoria’s activities in China,” said SM.
