Following the death of former f(x)’s Sulli, many Korean celebrities took to social media to express their love and at the same time spoke against cyberbullying. One of them was her group member, Victoria Song who not only voiced out her thoughts against online hate but also confronted malicious commenters on different social media platforms.
Song debuted as an artist in 2009 as part of f(x) together with Kystal, Amber, Luna, and Sulli who passed away recently. The 32-year-old celebrity took to her Weibo account to confront cyberbullies directly. Weibo is one of the leading social media platforms used in China.
Her message started with a question asking since when did social media posts become a ruler of life. She then mentioned that public platforms are to be used for sharing one’s life moments with the world. They shouldn’t be used to judge others’ relationships, emotions, morality or mental state.
She also used the line “only the wearer knows where the shoe pinches” which is to prove that no one knows the internal hardships a person is undergoing except that person alone. The Chinese celeb requested netizens should stop speculating and spreading rumors.
In addition, she said that if one has time to make up stories, that person should do something meaningful instead. She added that people live only once so better not waste your time. She ended her message by saying that everyone’s life is unique and nobody should dictate one how to live it and that some words are better left unspoken.- Advertisement -
If there was anything good that came with the sudden passing of Sulli, it’s the fact that many South Korean celebrities who were once quiet and hesitant to voice their opinions are now speaking up. They’ve become more open about their frustrations and struggles in life.
Upon the news of Sulli’s passing, Victoria Song stopped all her scheduled activities and joined family and friends of the late star during her funeral which was reportedly held on Thursday through a private ceremony. She was in the middle of filming her latest soon to be released Chinese drama.
