According to media outlet reports on July 31, MBC will produce a documentary remembering the life of the late idol singer/actress Sulli.
In addition to recalling the late Sulli‘s life and career, the documentary will feature interviews by the late Sulli‘s family members, as well as her SM Entertainment co-workers and acquaintances.

Choi Jin Ri (March 29, 1994 – October 13 or 14, 2019), better known by her stage name Sulli, was a South Korean actress, singer, and model. The late Sulli first debuted in the entertainment industry in 2005 as a child actress. Sulli was recognized as a prominent figure in Korean popular culture for her outspoken persona, becoming the most Googled person in South Korea in 2017, ahead of the current President of South Korea Moon Jae In.

Sulli had stirred up controversy among her fans, drawing criticism for her career choices that, in retrospect, often seemed overly harsh. In 2014, she announced she would be stepping away from f(x), permanently leaving the group the following year. In response, f(x) listeners criticized her on social media, even as she spoke about suffering from the mental toll of stardom. “Even when I said I was exhausted, no one listened to me,” Sulli said on a 2018 episode of her reality program, Jinri Market. “I felt all alone in the world.“
Sulli also courted online controversy by speaking out against wearing bras, kissing a friend on the lips, and dating fellow K-pop star Choiza, who was 14 years her senior. Following Sulli‘s death, experts claimed that the cyberbullying she was subjected to may have contributed to her untimely passing.
As MBC will produce a documentary remembering the life of the late idol singer/actress Sulli, netizens expect the documentary will be made respectfully.
