25-year-old K-Pop star Sulli was just found dead in her own home. Now, police are saying this is looking like Sulli has sadly taken her own life.
Sulli’s manager tried to call her several times over this past weekend, but could not get in touch with her.
On Monday, her manager went over to where she lived in Seongnam, which is a little south of the capital.

At 3:20 in the afternoon, her manager discovered her unresponsive in her apartment. She did live alone, and police have said they do not suspect any foul play. They did reveal they found a note.
More details have not been made available at this time, but we do know Sulli was pretty extensively cyberbullied on social media, and the police are speculating that was the cause of her death.
Sulli had been quite outspoken about cyberbullying and she struggled with depression.
She also was an advocate for women’s rights, and she received a lot of online backlash for taking that stance, given that South Korea is still pretty conservative.

Sulli shot to fame in 2009 as part of the girl group f(x). In 2014, she left the group and stopped her career, citing cyberbullying as her decision to do so.
Sulli then focused on her acting career and was very active on social media. She even went live on Instagram not long ago where she cried and talked about needing help.
It’s absolutely heartbreaking that this star never got the help she needed, and that she took her own life because of online trolls and hate.
Remember to be kind out there on the internet, because every mean thing you say online does have real-world consequences.
