Shinhwa's Dongwan Opened up about His Previous Comments on Sulli's Death, Criticizes 'The Night of Hate Comments'


Back in October, when we lost Sulli, Shinhwa's Dongwan expressed concerns over celebrities' psychological health on his Instagram. (For details, read Former SM Artist, Shinhwa's Dongwan Blames 'Large Entertainment Companies' for Artists' Mental Health) Dongwan commented on how young artists are required to present smiles 24/7 when they are deprived of rest, nutrition and energy.

On November 20th, KBS released previews on the November 24th episode of 'Feast on the Road' (literal translation). Dongwan appeared as a guest and talked about his previous Instagram post he shared right after Sulli's death.

Dongwan opened up, "Through media, I saw her. Even from that distance, I was worried because she was going through harsh times and was blamed so much. Through an acquaintance, I contacted her and asked if she needs any consulting. I told her, 'I know people who could help you.'"

Dongwan said, "Recently, I saw her on media and thought to myself that she found her own way of coping with issues. I was glad to think, 'Yes that is one way. She will be okay now.'"


It was not long after that Dongwan heard Sulli's death news.

Dongwan also criticized the show 'The Night of Hate Comments." He said, "I was really mad about the show she starred in. I think the show was produced based on the Youtube video clips where Hollywood celebrities read out malicious comments and fight back." Dongwan continued, "However, in Korea, it's impossible for a celebrity to pick on someone or even say something mean on radios or TV programs."

He also said, "In such culture, it was so cruel to see celebrities come up on the show and talk about what they were hurt about, and to see their reactions." Dongwan even quoted, "The show seemed like a 'human zoo' to me."

Dongwan criticized how Korean media and the public sees such celebrities as products. It was probably based on his own experience as an artist for more than a decade. It's hurtful to witness a bright young mind losing hope because of hatred. It's now really the time to look back and think about online hatred and unwanted consequences we no longer want.

Dongwan said that he didn't like his silicone phone case on the radio and someone spotted him at iPhone store on the 20th. He probably changed the case he got for his birthday.
