Kim Kibum originally debuted with Super Junior in 2005, however in 2006 the member expressed his interest in focusing on acting and has been on hiatus from the group ever since. According to a report by My Daily, fellow member Eunhyuk expressed that Super Junior would welcome Kibum back at any time. Though now Kibum is unlikely to return, it seems the remaining members of Super Junior still give him their support.

Member Ryeowook shared a message to his personal Twitter."I will always support you Kibum! I hope you"ll be happier in a good place," he tweeted. "We sincerely wish that being in Super Junior will leave good memories."

While the members seem to support Kibum, Korean netizens seem to have mixed responses to the member"s official departure from SM Entertainment. "You fool, you probably would"ve made more money if you stuck with Super Junior all along," one user commented as translated by Netizenbuzz.
