This is just so tragic…
K-Pop star Sulli, a former member of the band f(x) was found dead in her house yesterday (14 October). Her manager found her dead after not answering calls since last Sunday.
Sulli, whose real name is Choi Jin-ri debuted as a member of the girl band f(x) at just the age of 15 after being successful in auditioning for the band by SM Entertainment. She was in the band until 2015, where she focused on her acting career. Besides being in acting, she has also written songs.
In recent years, Sulli was plagued with a lot of controversies, receiving extremely negative comments from netizens due to her opinions, which was incompatible to Korean society.
Most shockingly, the South Korean police are not ruling out suicide in her death. The way that she was found implied that she ended her life. However, the police are investigating all possibilities before concluding the cause of death.
News of her passing has shocked fans and netizens worldwide. They were mainly shocked, as it came in out of the blue, and she looked all right the day before her death.

If there’s 1 thing that we learn from the Sulli incident it’s that we need to realize that at the end of the day, idols are human beings and have feelings exactly like us. Think before you send hate comments. Don’t say anything you wouldn’t want to be said about you or your fave.

RIP Sulli. I hope all of us can think about the possible consequences before we speak because the truth is words do hurt and at the end of the day, apologies won’t heal what has been done.
