Amber once again took to her Instagram to share a cryptic message that is likely directed at her agency SM Entertainment.
On Saturday, the f(x) member posted a photo of her arm tattoo alongside a lengthy caption written in English. Apparently, the message suggested how her current label has been treating her for the past five years.
Despite efforts in writing and producing her own music, Amber implied that SM Entertainment has continued to give her the same answer over the years - "We don't have time for you."
"Every year, I would stay at home for weeks because nothing was "coming in." They still tell me I'm not good enough. What more do I have to do?" Amber wrote as cited by Allkpop.
This is not the first time the idol has expressed her frustrations with the agency. On Mar. 14, the f(x) member has caused her fans to worry when she posted a black photo with an intriguing caption.
"I've given my everything. I tried to work things out. Whether it be the creative or business, I've been doing everything myself for years so I can keep myself afloat," she said as noted by Soompi.
Amber went on, "But in the end, I'm continuously neglected, hurt, and taken advantage of."
Since posting these updates, fans have been sending their words of encouragement to the f(x) member on Instagram. Most of them gave their two cents on the issue, while others just cheered Amber on.
"If you're being told not good enough by your boss, you either show more and go beyond good enough or keep working behind the scene till your contract is up and leave," a netizen said.
Another one wrote, "Amber should sign with another company, one that can promote her well and actually focus on her strengths rather than pull her back and keep her from doing what she loves to do."
What are your thoughts on this?
“We don’t have time for you” Every year, I would stay at home for weeks because nothing was “coming in.” Instead of waiting, for the past 5 years I’ve been writing my own songs, making my own albums, producing, directing, and/or editing my videos, making concepts and styling, writing proposals and presenting marketing plans, and even looking for my own jobs, all so that I could do what I love for my fans. Even after 5 years, I’m given the same answer. They still tell me I’m not good enough. What more do I have to do?
