Sulli's fan memorial confirmed by SM Entertainment after tragic death

A memorial where fans can pay tribute to the late K-pop star Sulli has been announced.

The former f(x) member was found dead at her home in Seongnam yesterday, with police working on the assumption that she took her own life.

Now, Sulli’s agency SM Entertainment has confirmed that the 25-year-old’s family wants fans to be able to pay their respects.

A statement from SM read: ‘This is SM Entertainment. Sulli has left our side. We are struck with grief to deliver such sad news to fans.

‘Following the wishes of Sulli’s family, we have prepared a place where the fans who have always cheered Sulli on and sent her their endless love and support can bid her farewell with a warm greeting, at the address below.’

The memorial will be held at Funeral Hall 7 on ground floor level 1 of Shinchon Severance Hospital, with SM adding: ‘From October 15 (4 PM – 9 PM) and October 16 (12 PM – 9 PM), fans can pay their condolences.

‘Once again, we express our deepest grief regarding the news.’

SM also stated that Sulli’s funeral will be private, and the location would not be revealed.

The agency had previously spoken out hours after Sulli’s body was discovered by her manager.

Their statement read: ‘We apologise for conveying such sad and unfortunate news. Sulli has left our side.

‘We cannot believe the situation now and we are just filled with grief.

‘For her family who is grieving after the sudden news of her passing, we earnestly request that you refrain from writing speculative articles or spreading rumours. We express our deep condolences.’

Sulli was best known for her time in f(x), who she debuted with in 2009 before leaving on hiatus in 2014.

The Electric Shock singer was struggling with the abuse she received from trolls online, and left the band for good the following year.

Sulli made her solo debut in June 2019 with the single album Goblin.

The K-pop industry has reacted with grief at Sulli’s passing, with acts including Amber Liu, SuperM and Super Junior cancelling events out of respect.
