AceShowbiz - K-Pop fans were shocked after it was reported that singer and actress Sulli was found dead in an apparent suicide at her home in Sujeong-gu, Seongnam in the Gyeonggi province of South Korea on Monday, October 14. Yonhap, the site which first reported the news, alleged that the star's manager was the one who found her lifeless.
It was said that Sulli passed away on the second floor of her house. The time of death was reportedly to be around 3:21 P.M. KST.
Another media outlet claimed that the manager last contacted the former member of Korean girlgroup f(x) the previous night at 6:30 P.M. but he couldn't get a hold of her since, prompting him to drop by her home at around 4:30 P.M. KST. "The last time I talked with Sulli was the night before around 6:30 P.M. (KST). I haven't heard from her since then so I came over to her house and found her dead," the manager allegedly commented to the police.
Following the shocking news, Sulli's rep had just released a statement in which it was stated that her family is on the way to her place. Her agency, SM Entertainment, is also currently trying to confirm the truth of the rumors and if she's alive or not.
"I have heard the rumors and reports, and I am hoping that it is not true. It is also a frustrating situation for us as well, as we cannot reach them," said a representative for SM Entertainment.
Born on March 29, 1994, Sulli debuted as 1/5 member of SM Entertainment's f(x) in 2009 alongside Krystal, Victoria, Luna and Amber. She left the group in 2015 to focus on her acting career though she remained to be under the agency. She then resumed her career as a singer after a three-year hiatus with a feature on Dean's 2018 single "Dayfly". In June, Sulli made her solo debut with her single album titled "Goblin".
