Although most comments on the star’s social media accounts seem positive and supportive, it seems that some of her followers are unhappy with her coming out and have been trolling her girlfriend.
According to Kpop site Soompi, which translated her Instagram story from Korean, she wrote: “If the posting of speculative written content and videos continue, I will be taking legal measures.
“I am in a loving [relationship] and since it’s not wrong, I confidently did come out [as bisexual], but I didn’t do it so that I could stand out. What kind of person lightly makes the decision to come out like that?”
She continued: “People think differently and can hate same-sex relationships. Yes, you can hate it. Those are individual values and I’m not trying to force [anyone] to understand or like homosexuality.
“I am also not begging for [anyone] to like or notice me. I didn’t think that I would receive this much attention. I just didn’t want to hide the fact that I am dating and in love just like everyone else.
“I don’t want my people to get hurt, and it’s my duty to protect them. I will also take legal measures to protect my people. Please stop.”
The singer released her debut single Mini Radio in June this year.
