Being a phenomenal public figure, one must be ready to the fact that anyone may not approve what we do and the way we choose to represent ourselves. Former f(x) member, Sulli, recently receives massive backlashes from netizens that think she overly exposed herself in a way people think is inappropriate. Lucky for Sulli she has a lot of people to back her up, including “Train to Busan” actor Kim Ui Sung.
Kim Ui Sung has been one of the people who actively defend his fellow celebrities from internet meanies. On April 15, the actor shared his criticism towards haters in an interview with Maxim Korea. When asked about Sulli, who’s regularly criticized online for her sexy Instagram posts, Kim Ui Sung said that netizens’ criticism shouldn’t be accepted as if it was a moral guide. The actor even stated that the criticism from internet bullies is like the difference between common sense and stupidity, Soompi reported.
Kim Ui Sung believes that everyone, including public figure like Sulli, deserves to choose how they want to live their life. However, netizens responded to the interview by simply stressing their point that Sulli should have been able to handle her social media contents more wisely since she might have a big influence on under-aged children who look up to her.
Meanwhile, there are a lot of netizens that think people criticizing Sulli’s contents on social media are like a hypocrite since they’re praising Western celebrities like Selena Gomez or Kendall Jenner, who obviously dare to post even way sexier contents on their social media. Sulli, whom Vogue dubbed as the cutest celebrity in the world, haven’t really got netizens’ criticism into her mind. That particular attitude is what makes Kim Ui Sung adores her even more.
This is not the first time Kim Ui Sung calls out Sulli’s haters to leave the singer alone. Back in January, the actor took it to Twitter to state his compliment to Sulli. Kim Ui Sung wrote that Sulli is the coolest girl in the world because she doesn’t let people dictate her own life.
