Sulli Candidly Responds To Malicious Comments About Not Wearing A Bra, Accusations Of Drug Use&more

On the June 21 premiere of the show “Night of Hate Comments” (literal title), Sulli read out some online comments about her and candidly replied.

In response to a comment that called her an attention seeker, Sulli said, “Aren’t we all attention seekers?” and joked, “Please give me attention.”

Sulli also replied to a comment that said it seemed like she uses drugs, since her pupils looked dilated. Sulli said, “There are even people who’ve uploaded comparisons of photos of my pupils next to photos of the pupils of people who really do drugs.”

She went on to say, “I did a film called ‘Real,’ and there was a scene that portrayed drug use. I did a lot of research then and watched five films a day about drugs. So my friends would say, ‘Are you Heath Ledger or something?’ I told them, ‘Can’t I do method acting too? I’m doing this because I want to do a good job.'”

Sulli also said, “I could take out a strand of my hair right now.” The MCs pointed out that she’d dyed her hair and eyebrows, so Sulli laughed and said, “Then I’d do it with my leg hair. I didn’t shave my leg hair.”

She clarified, “I don’t do anything illegal.” She said, “I act freely within the limits of the law.”

Sulli has also frequently been the subject of malicious comments about how she sometimes uploads photos in which she’s not wearing a bra. In response to one of these comments, she said, “I think this is about the freedom of the individual. Bras aren’t good for your health. They have a wire. They’re not good for your digestive organs, and I have issues with my digestion. Since it’s more comfortable not to, I don’t wear them. I think that it’s free and beautiful.”

She went on to say that she thinks of bras as accessories. She said, “They suit some clothing, and if there’s a piece of clothing that doesn’t look good with a bra, then I don’t wear one.” She surprised the others when she said, “I’m not wearing that accessory right now.”

When asked why she continues to upload photos of herself without bras on social media, she replied, “When I first posted a ‘no bra’ photo, there was a lot of talk about it. I was scared and could have hidden, but the reason I didn’t is that I want to change peoples’ prejudices about that. Part of me also wanted to say ‘This isn’t that big of a deal.'”

“I’ve heard that lately there are more people who go out without bras on,” said Sulli.

Sulli also talked about a time when she had filed a criminal complaint against someone who wrote a malicious comment about her. However, she found out that the person was going to a famous university and was the same age as her. She said, “If I wasn’t lenient with a student who goes to such a good university, they’d become an ex-convict. They’d have issues when they try to find a job later on.”

“I received a long letter from the malicious commenter,” she said. “They said they were sorry and they hadn’t known it would become such a large issue. They said they’d taken their stress out on me.”

She said that she felt bad about turning someone her own age into an “ex-convict” and decided to be lenient. “However, if I file a complaint again, I won’t be lenient,” she said.

[Netizen reactions]Article: 'Night of Hate Comments' Sulli opens up about 'no bra controversy', "Simply because it's comfortable"

1. [+819, -64] ㅎㅎ I agree that it's comfortable.. but.. I'm not brave enough so I still wear mine. I applaud her ability to not care about how others view her and just do what she feels like freely..

2. [+627, -98] She's free to wear what she wants so it's funny to me that this is considered controversial at all

3. [+549, -169] It is comfortable... but it's not like the rest of us go around taking pictures without a bra on

4. [+47, -13] Not sure why this is something she should be getting hate for

5. [+39, -19] You're free to not wear a bra or panties but you shouldn't go around accusing people of eye r*ping you

6. [+31, -4] As a woman, even I understand that when Sulli is talking about "eye r*pe", she doesn't mean when someone simply looks at her. It's when someone harasses you with their eyes or even verbally.. I think people are taking her words at face value.

7. [+22, -8] Please don't hate on her too much. She may be clueless but she's never caused a scandal.

8. [+22, -12] It's wrong to hate her for choosing to wear what she feels comfortable in but she can't control it if other people choose to look ㅎㅎ

9. [+18, -6] She's never once been in a controversy for simply not wearing a bra. It's because she always took pictures of herself without a bra on that it earned attention. Then she called it "eye r*pe", which is how it got to this point. She's trying to act like an innocent victim in all of this like the hate she's getting is unwarranted.

10. [+11, -4] Sigh. Duh, we know that it's comfortable. But imagine if a male celebrity showed up in leggings without any underwear or a long shirt, is that considered acceptable too??? Why do people always say it's accepted in foreign cultures when it's not in ours ㅋㅋㅋㅋ that argument just makes you look dumb.

Article: 'Night of Hate Comments' Sulli responds to 'drugged out eyes' comment, "I don't do criminal activities"

Source: SpoTV News via Nate

1. [+602, -27] Yeah, that's good, just don't commit any crimes

2. [+540, -107] Park Yoochun "I have never done any drugs"

3. [+316, -133] Her hair color doesn't match her at all

4. [+45, -15] So many celebrities have denied crimes that they ended up committing anyway. Everyone on TV is so different from who they claim to be.

5. [+43, -8] What druggie would be on TV saying "yes, I in fact do do drugs" ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ did you guys not see Park Yoochun? ㅋㅋㅋ

6. [+33, -6] It's really unfair that you're all treating every celebrity like druggies just because Park Yoochun lied

7. [+23, -5] I think this show is dangerous... forcing her to read all that, what if she feels depressed at home later?

8. [+19, -9] When have you ever seen a druggie admit it???

9. [+18, -6] I don't support shows like this. I can't imagine reading hate comments would be good for your mental health.

10. [+17, -0] I refuse to be fooled by celebrity images anymore

she looks good with the new hair but netizens need to let her live already
neongoldtooth 21st-Jun-2019 10:24 pm (UTC)
I don’t remember her making the eye r*** comment, but fuck it weirds me out that she even has to say shit about wearing a bra. If she doesn’t want to wear a bra that’s her own business. Idk I like the idea about talking about the ridiculous hate comments she gets but also the fact that she has to explain herself about her own body and the choices she makes just bums me out.

during one of her insta lives in which she went drinking with friends she received a lot of gross and sexual comments because she wasn't wearing a bra and she called them "eye rape". i understand if people feel like it trivializes rape and shouldn't be used lightly (i agree) but the way knetz are essentially blaming the all sexual harassment directed at her on her not wearing a bra is so..
lizanka23 22nd-Jun-2019 12:47 am (UTC)
i can kind of get where she's coming from since those comments even though are just written and digital can feel very violating and degrading
saemcrh 22nd-Jun-2019 04:41 am (UTC)
It's not rape, she's disgusting for saying that and it's a disservice to victims of rape.
lizanka23 22nd-Jun-2019 07:05 pm (UTC)
I didn’t say she was justified in saying that. I was just saying I understood where she was coming from
lizanka23 22nd-Jun-2019 12:52 am (UTC)
yeah i don't like how they are asking her about why she keeps posting photos of her with no bra on. it just sounds victim blamey. it's her personal account and she's not harming anyone anyway. she should just be able to say it's my body and i can do whatever i want with it
scionofawhisper 21st-Jun-2019 11:35 pm (UTC)
"I don’t wear them. I think that it’s free and beautiful." Aw.. She gets so much hate, I don't know how she deals and doesn't turn super bitter tbh.

People who do something outside of what's normal always get so much hate, until it becomes the norm and then history will make the other people look silly, haha.

She's a no-bra pioneer in Korea.

She looks sooo good with that hair, omg. o.o
myrrhcat 22nd-Jun-2019 12:37 am (UTC)
I love her expression in that first pic, sassy khaleesi vibes
lizanka23 22nd-Jun-2019 12:57 am (UTC)
i don't like how it's a group of MCs all grilling her together to explain her choices. are comment is spot on about attention. a big reason people have social media accounts is for attention especially if you're a celebrity. people don't become celebrities to be low-key chill people. also her friends sound condescending tbh. everyone praises ledger as a genius actor so why can't she also prepare intensely for her role? and of course the bra conversation is awkward. society is the problem for sexualizing women's bodies so much that women have to hide in bras but she is forced to justify her not wearing one *rolls eyes*

also echoing the comment above about her facial expressions. love the smirks. also love the styling. she looks her age here unlike when she was in f(x)

I’m really starting to love her, I can’t wait to hear her music!

Her comments in defense of Rotta will forever disgust me, but if the girl doesn't want to wear a bra she shouldn't have to. If her nipples offend you so much unfollow her.
lil_poisonfrog 22nd-Jun-2019 02:10 am (UTC)
Oooh yikes I forgot about that
kyulkyung 22nd-Jun-2019 02:37 am (UTC)
she didn't so much defend rotta as the pictures he took of her. she definitely deserves flack for working with him back in the day but she hasn't in years and i like to think she's grown and realizes how much of a creep he was with all the shit that came to light last year.
kimbafierce 22nd-Jun-2019 03:20 am (UTC)
I doubt his reputation was squeaky clean bts, and that the people who worked with him found out he was a repulsive creep after it all came out like the rest of us. Pieces of shit usually stink, especially to those working with them. I hope she's grown and that she knows better now, but until I get any kind of indication that she did my opinion of her will remain unfavorable.
lil_poisonfrog 22nd-Jun-2019 02:19 am (UTC)
I like how she's frank about wanting attention. It's so annoying how ppl criticize celebs for that, it's literally their job to bring attention to themselves. Any celeb who claims to hate attention or fame is a fucking liar. You never see those people take their millions and leave the industry to try and live a private life.

Anyway, she was smart for having a controversial IG bc idk if she'd still be as relevant rn without it.
evilcoc0nut 22nd-Jun-2019 02:46 am (UTC)
I agree with her. Bras are stupid and the wire ones are legit painful.
pseudo_shigure 22nd-Jun-2019 05:12 am (UTC)
hmm the comments are p. sensible, or at least less worse than i thought it'd be, except for 1-2 that don't get too many up-votes anyway. but i agree with those two who said this show may not be good for their mental health.
timetobegin 22nd-Jun-2019 07:07 am (UTC)
The Heath Ledger comment.... fuck off.

She's said and done some sketchy things in the recent past but she also seems to be living a rather non-traditional female life in SK which is in many ways a good thing I think???
lightframes 24th-Jun-2019 03:22 am (UTC)
She's right about bras - they really aren't comfortable sometimes and sometimes it's easier to go without one.
