The announcement came in the news of Sulli’s sudden death by suicide. The agency said, “We want to express our deepest condolences and pray for the repose of the departed.”
On October 11th, IU announced her comeback with her fifth mini-album ‘Love Poem‘. However, because of her friend’s tragic death, she decided to stop the pre-release of her comeback album contents.
IU is also set to embark on her ‘Love, Poem’ Asian concert tour. It hasn’t been clarified if this will be also affected.
The two have been friends for a long time. In August this year, Sulli made her appearance as a special guest in tvN’s “Hotel del Luna”, where IU is the main lead actress, boasting their close friendship. They also worked together as music broadcast MCs. -HallyuLife.com
