Sunye Hopes People Will Not Rely On Medicine For Mental Illness, Mourns Loss of Sulli

Sunye hopes people will have the courage to share their pain with others.

Former Wonder Girls member Sunye posted a message on her Instagram in hopes to help others who are going through a hard time.

Her post included a photo of white flowers and a message that read,


A friend who was good enough just the way she was, shining and beautiful, has left behind a sad footprint. My heart aches at the reality that I was not able to do anything…it is saddening to think that there are many people who are enduring the same pain…especially those who are in the entertainment industry. Although there is nothing that I can do to help…I hope that those in pain will have the courage to share the pain as I will always be open to listen. Psychotropic drugs are never an emergency exit for the pain. Please do not think that there is no other choice…we will continue to remember this sad footprint that has been left behind.

그냥 존재만으로도 충분했고, 빛나고,아름다웠던 한 친구가 슬픈발자국을 남기고갔습니다… 바라보고만 있을 수 밖에 없다는 사실에 가슴이 먹먹합니다.. 지금 이 시간에도 똑같이 그 아픔을 견디고 있을 많은 분들.. 특히 연예계 후배님들이 분명 있을 것이라는 생각에 너무나 미안한 마음뿐입니다.. 해줄 수있는 일이 없지만..그 아픔을 나눠줄 용기를 조금이라도 내준다면 언제든지 “들어주고”싶은 마음입니다.. 향정신적 약물은 결코 비상구가 아닙니다. 선택이 없다고 생각하지 마시길 바랍니다.. 우리에게 남겨진 이 슬픈 발자국을 기억하고 또 기억하겠습니다.
