SM announced today that Sulli will be taking a break from the entertainment industry due to her poor physical health and the mental effects of the malicious rumours and comments about her.
There’s no official confirmation what rumours have affected Sulli but she has suffered comments regarding her lazyness/attitude, as well as comments about her weight/physical appearance and some serious backlash from the incident where Choiza’s wallet was found with her picture in it.
As a consequence of Sulli’s break F(x) have ceased promotions for ‘red light’ immediately however are still due to appear at SMTown as a four piece.
You can check out some netizen comments at Netizen Buzz.
So, in my opinion Sulli hasn’t seemed entusiastic in a long while so maybe a break is a the right thing for her right now, she has been in the entertainment industry for a long time.
I’m not sure the sense to calling the rest of F(x)’s promotions though. They already had the stage edited to perform without Sulli and, without meaning to sound harsh to Sulli, I hadn’t really noticed her missing from this particular song.
That being said, who knows what is going on that we don’t know about and it may just be that with their ongoing lawsuit with Kris SM are making sure they don’t misstep and give the other side any ammunition.
What do you think of the story? Is Sulli entitled to her break? Should she be affected by netizen comments? Was cancelling the promotions the right thing to do?
