After the controversial episode of MBC‘s Docuplex on the late Sulli aired, her friends took to Instagram and spoke up against Sulli’s mother who appeared in the documentary.

Both posts called out Sulli’s mother and brother for “using her” while she “battled the busy schedules and controversies alone.”

Another friend posted online that he only agreed to appear in the documentary because they promised it would highlight her life in a genuine way. But he was shocked that it took a different turn.

With all these posts from friends calling them out, Sulli’s brother took to social media to lash out at them for “chasing clout” through the documentaries.

But the next day, Sulli’s brother made an update on Instagram apologizing to the friends for lashing out.

I apologize for being one-sidedly violent towards my sister’s friends, using violent words and not acting violently in arguments, letting rumors that spread because of me get worse and having them point fingers at her friends.

⁠— Choi Gunhee

He apologized for his lack of thought in regards to his words and actions and promised to reflect on his actions.

It’s also been awhile since our family has been cut off contact with my sister. I’m sorry that her friends were accused due to my misunderstanding. I also apologize for using the attention my sister received from fans to do improper things. I am sorry that I continued these actions due to my lack of thought. Going forward, I will reflect on my actions.

⁠— Choi Gunhee

지난 시간동안 동생 친구분들에게 일방적으로 폭력적인 태도로 대한것, 많은 언쟁이 오가면서 폭력적인 언행과 불순한 태도를 보인 점, 저로인해 루머확산이 조장된 사실을 방관했던것, 동생친구들에게 내비췬점 죄송합니다 그리고 저희가족은 어느순간부터 동생과 연락을 끊어온지도 상당한시간이 흘렀었습니다 그리고 오해들로 친구들에게 누명아닌 누명을 씌우게끔 언행한점 죄송합니다 그리고 동생을 팬분들 대중에게 받아왔던 관심을 악용하여 음란,불순한 행동을 한 점 저의 불찰이고 짧은 생각으로 잘 못된 행동들을 지속해왔던 것에 대해 죄송하다는 말을 전하며 앞으로 반성하고 살겠습니다

Although the documentary’s purpose was to shed light on Suli’s life, it seems that it became a start-off point for many controversial responses. What do you think about the documentary? Why do you think Sulli’s brother suddenly apologized after lashing out.
