Sulli’s legal name was Choi Jin-ri. She began her singing career in 2009 as a member of the girl band f(x) and also acted in numerous television dramas and movies. She was known for her feminist voice and outspokenness that was rare among female entertainers in deeply conservative South Korea. She recently appeared in a TV show and spoke out against online backlash she received over her lifestyle.
