Tributes for Sulli
Sulli had talent and music journalist Taylor Glasby labeled her as a free spirit. She said:
“She was one of the idols who decided to live her life in the way she wanted to and that didn’t always sit well with the general public,”
“For idols, everything is about appearance, everything is quite monitored and she just didn’t [monitor her content]. She was herself”.
“She clapped back and she wouldn’t take people’s narrow-mindedness.”
Furthermore, Taylor also praised the band f(x):
“They were one of the girl groups that didn’t fit in, they did their own thing. And their music was more hard-hitting. Besides, it was innovative and complex, and it helped cement an entire sub-genre within K-pop – girl crush.
“When she left, her legacy became being outspoken. It became taking control of her own image. I admired her spirit to do so despite the constant negativity that was directed at her by some less open minded citizens.”
Also, Amber Liu, her former bandmate tweeted:
“Due to recent events i’ll be putting on hold my upcoming activities. Sorry everyone. Thank you for your thoughts.”
