Soojin, a former member of (G)I-DLE, who left the group due to school violence allegations, has opened an Instagram account.
In her first post, the former female idol published a single photo without any special captions. In the photo, she can be seen wearing a matching white hat and shirt while putting on a pair of sunglasses, looking hip and doll-like at the same time.
Fans who saw the photo show their excitement, leaving comments such as, “Soojin, I missed you”, “Is this really Soojin?”, “I missed you a lot”, and so on. However, some netizens expressed reactions like, “Is she going to resume activities now?”, “Is she going back to being an entertainer?”, and “She seems like an ordinary person now.”
Previously, in 2021, rumors of Soojin being a school bully arose through an online community. At the time, her agency denied the allegations and announced that they would be taking legal actions.
However, during that period, actress Seo Shin Ae seemed to have indirectly implied about being a victim of Soojin. Regarding this, Soojin responded by stating, “I have never had any conversation with Seo Shin Ae during our school days”.
Ultimately, after 6 months of controversy, Soojin departed from (G)I-DLE so as to protect the group’s image. Since then, there has been continued interest among netizens about Soojin’s current situation.
