Thank you for your thoughts.
Sulli's real name was Choi Jin-Ri, and she gained first attention as a child actress after starring in SBS drama, Ballad of Seodong. In 2009, she debuted as a member of the f(x) group but left it in 2015 to focus on her acting career.
Sulli was known for her outspoken comments. While promoting f (x)'s third studio album — Red Light, Sulli reportedly had a rough time due to being mentally and physically exhausted from all the negative and malicious comments that she heard about her personal life.
Not only this, in 2017, she was accused of drug use on social media due to her dilated pupils in her film, Real. If this was not enough, then Sulli announced in July this year that she is advocating for the no bra movement. Her decision for not wearing a bra and exposing her assets on social media accounts met with heavy criticism from her millions of fans.
"Bras have wires; they are not good for health. Not wearing one is comfortable. That is something beautiful and natural. For me, a bra is like an accessory. Some outfits go with it, and others do not. That's why I sometimes do not wear a bra, " Sulli was reported to have said in the past.
