Sunmi is so precious and I absolutely adore …

Sunmi is so precious and I absolutely adore her but the one little thing she did that made me love her is when she posted a picture on her insta of a scene from an Indian movie called three idiots. I know it probably sounds stupid but I feel like as a south Asian fan, everyone overlooks us, it’s always about east Asia and the west, anything in between is completely ignored. so the simple act of her sharing that made me ridiculously happy

I’m so happy for Sunmi. I’ve been her fan basi…

I’m so happy for Sunmi. I’ve been her fan basically since i was aware of her existence and i know she’s been struggling to gain and maintain a healthy looking weight and she finally is gaining! She’s obviously very happy as well and proud and so am I. I saw some nasty knets saying that the 8 kg weight gain was from her getting a boob job which is just ridiculous! Her chest hasn’t changed recently but I have been clearly seeing the weight in her legs and face so i hope she doesn’t let that foolish comments get to her!

If y’all wanna be gross and drop sunmi because she clarified she didn’t come out then THEN LEAVE. Sunmi LITERALLY SAID GAY RIGHTS and has embraced the community and as an ally has done so much more than wear a t-shirt or listen to a gay song she’s vocalized her support and that’s still a very brave thing for a kpop star to do.

She’s made it clear she didn’t come out so either she’s straight and we need to respect that or she’s not ready to come out WHICH WE STILL NEED TO RESPECT. Because being lgbt as a high profile korean celebrity is a huge risk in itself and unfortunately jeopardizes her domestic career. We love our LGBT ally queen sunmi end of story
