Pop Star, Sulli, Dead At The Age Of 25

The former girl group member had made her return to music this year

Sulli, a South Korean actress and former member of the Ok-pop idol group f (x), was discovered useless right now at dwelling within the South Korean metropolis of Seongnam.

Sulli's legal name was Choi Jin-ri. Police are continuing to investigate Sulli's cause of death and are "working under the assumption that she may have taken her own life, according to Variety". News reports on Monday said Sulli was found dead at her home south of Seoul.

Her candour on mental-health issues was another anomaly in the Korean entertainment world. Some entertainers have committed suicide due to depression aggravated by malicious online comments. She chose to focus on her acting career in 2015 and later relaunched her singing career as a solo artist.

"More than the constant hate she has received, let's remember Sulli more for the things she fought for".

Continuing to find success both as a solo performer and an actress, she was also open about the pressures fame can bring.

But she was forced to retire four years ago after suffering horrific online abuse. "Sulli's death shouldn't be reported as a suicide but murder", one fan tweeted, adding that the pop star "was attacked constantly" and "there's only so much a person can take".

Previously in one interview, Sulli opened up about her panic disorder and social phobia, saying in a teaser for her reality show Jinri Store past year: She had been experiencing social phobia and panic disorder. "I asked around a lot for advice".

"I didn't feel like I had anyone on my side or anyone who could understand me".

Details of death: Died at her home in Seongnam, South Korea of suspected suicide at the age of 25.
