Kim Ui Sung Defends Sulli Against Criticism Over Social Media Posts
Kim Ui Sung spoke up yet again about his friend Sulli’s ongoing social media controversy.
On April 15, Maxim Korea released their recent interview with the “Train To Busan” actor, where he shared his candid thoughts about Sulli and the hate she often receives from netizens online.
“[Netizens’ criticism] is the difference between common sense and stupidity,” he remarked. “There is nothing morally wrong with [her posts]. She is just trying to express herself in ways that she chooses, but right underneath that, there are people saying, ‘Don’t live your life this way’ or ‘It’s none of your business.’”
However, many netizens responded to the interview by saying that Sulli should handle her social media with more care. While social media is clearly someone’s personal space, many people feel that Sulli should think about the impact she makes on the young children and teenagers who look up to her.
This is not the first time Kim Ui Sung has gone public with his thoughts regarding Sulli’s social media presence. Back in January, the actor took to his personal Twitter account to defend the actress’s decision to upload controversial photos of herself to her Instagram account. The tweet reads, “Sulli’s the coolest person in the world for continuing to upload photos without any explanation.”
일일이 구차한 설명 따위 일체 달지 않고 계속 사진을 올리는 설리가 세상에서 제일 멋있다.
