Following the confirmation that former f(x) member Sulli is dating brand director Kim Min Jun, netizens are setting social media afire with their reactions to the new relationship. Unfortunately, not everyone is happy about the news.
According to a report by All Kpop, netizens have been very vocal about their dissatisfaction over Sulli’s new relationship, especially since she just broke off her almost three-year relationship with rapper Choiza in early March. Many of the fans voiced concern that she may be growing too dependent on having a boyfriend.
Some of the commenters have not been very kind about their words and accused Sulli of cheating on Choiza with Kim Min Jun. It has earlier been reported that Kim Min Jun has been friends with Sulli and Choiza for a while so netizens were puzzled about how quickly Sulli moved on with the brand director who is involved in the promotion of hip-hop crew 360 Sounds on top of other business interests.
“Isn’t he Choiza’s friend?”, “Did she break up with Choiza because of him?” were some of the questions posted by netizens on the thread. Some reports have claimed that the pair has been seeing each other for two months now but it should be noted that this remains unconfirmed as SM Entertainment only issued a statement about the relationship the other day.
Meanwhile, some netizens remarked on Kim Min Jun’s striking resemblance to Choiza and said that he is just Sulli’s type. However, neither Sulli nor Kim Min Jun have responded to the comments and instead chosen to lie low amid the attention.
According to Popcrush, SM Entertainment confirmed the relationship of Sulli and Kim Min Jun and explained that they developed a romantic interest in each other recently. The label appealed for the public to respect the couple’s privacy since Kim Min Jun is not a celebrity.
