    Here's How Twitter Is Remembering K-Pop Star And Actor Sulli

    "A brave and strong woman who lived her authentic life in a judgmental society."

    Earlier today, SM Entertainment confirmed that Choi Jin-ri, the K-pop star, actor, and former f(x) member better known as Sulli, has died at the age of 25. In light of this tragic event, here are some outpourings of love and positivity from her fans and admirers:


    will always remember you (March 29, 1994 – October 14, 2019) #Sulli 💖

    Sulli was an ambassador for Estée Lauder, and in December 2018 she held a pop-up shop in collaboration with the brand, showcasing a personal photo album titled "SULLI - Love, Myself" and much more.


    I will never forget the way she fought for our equality and openly talked about feminism even with the continuous hate she got from it. Love you Sulli 💓 #Sulli

    Despite the critique and cyberbullying she often encountered, Sulli frequently posted photos without a bra on and voiced her opinions about the no-bra movement. She also openly talked about her struggles at length on variety shows like Night of Hate Comments, as well as her own show, Jinri Market, and co-penned a song about dissociative disorder called "Goblin" this past June, which was also her long-awaited solo debut.


    a brave and strong woman who lived her authentic life in a judgmental society. there were many cries for help and most fell on deaf ears. mental health is a serious issue and it’s heartbreaking that she couldn’t fight her demons. rest well and find peace Sulli

    y'all feel free to use these if you like Sulli was always bright and outspoken. I don't like mourning in darkness so I decided the brightest white and a peach would do.

    I grew up with watching Sulli’s drama “To The Beautiful You”, and I was so in love with it and cried endlessly. Now she’s gone at such a young age, and I never fee so devastated to know the passing of an idol who has taken up such a huge burden on her back. RIP, Sulli 😔💔

    Her last onscreen role before her passing was on Hotel Del Luna, which is a drama about a fantastical hotel that serves wandering ghosts who have unfinished business with their previous lives and helps them cross over into the afterlife.


    May you rest in peace. #Sulli I hope Hotel del Luna was a genuine place for souls to rest.

    She was in talks to star in the next installment of Netflix's Persona, following fellow K-pop starlet IU — who is pictured on the left and played the lead in Hotel Del Luna.

    Many K-pop stars — including her former groupmate Amber Liu and labelmate Super Junior — and labels alike have postponed or put their releases, teasers, recordings, and events on hold in light of the news.
