Bidding Farewell Through Personal Handwritten Letter
Following the announcement of his leaving, Rowoon shared his farewell from the group through a handwritten letter.

While expressing his sincere apology to the fans, Rowoon also delivered his gratitude for the 7 years he spent promoting as a Kpop idol with SF9. And he asked his fans to continue supporting him as he focused on his work and new challenges.
“Hello, this is Rowoon.
I’ve been contemplating a lot about what to say. It feels strange since I haven’t talked like this in a while.
As I tried new works and challenged myself with new things, I became more comfortable. I truly wished I could clear up all the misunderstandings about me. But I felt that fans would see the real story. So, I focused on my work and sometimes hid how I felt. Even if I know many fans are supporting me, I still feel a bit nervous. Instead of setting things straight, I often just stayed quiet.
I sincerely apologize if I seemed like I didn’t care and upset anyone. If I acted differently, it was because I was hiding how I felt.
I’ve been doing my thing for seven years and am grateful for all the good times. Thinking about it now, I’m just really thankful, and it was all because of you.
I’m 27 this year and want to try something new. I’m brave enough to say it. Please watch over me as I try to do right by who I am at this age.”Rowoon.
