After sending the picture and her support online, the post was caught by netizens. It was welcomed with good reception and was highly praised by the online community due to Sunmi’s act of kindness. Some even called Sunmi an “Ideal Sunbae” after seeing her post.

Here are some comments from the online community:

“Sunmi is so sweet…. seriously, she’s your ideal sunbae…ㅠㅠ Sunmi has already peaked multiple times and even during SWF, she asked the crew not to film her. Seeing this really shows how kind her personality is and how she wants others to succeed”

“Sunmi is seriously cool… I’m sure she’s being careful because of how known her face is but she’s still acting based on her values ㅠㅠ”

“You can see how much Sunmi cares for her hoobaes when you see how much her hoobaes like her.. people definitely have their reputation on check in the industry but this is good to see”

“Sunmi is also f**king kind and daebak but I wonder how well Chuu treats the people around her on a regular basis. Freaking amazing.”

Meanwhile, some also expressed their thoughts on BlockBerry’s unrestrained send-off where “power abuse” was instilled as main context. They stated the label should’ve been less harsh in their phrasing, while sending off Chuu with more dignity at her side.

“I found it so funny when I saw the articles about Chuu’s power tripㅋㅋㅋㅋ I couldn’t believe it one bit. Why are they doing this? Sigh.. they should send off a hard working kid like her with more dignity”

“I don’t understand why they decided to make up something like this for an idol that was driven by taxis to her own events because they wouldn’t allocate staff to her like…. who is chuu supposed to power trip on?”

Sunmi & Chuu’s Precious Hoobae-Sunbae Relationship – A Friendship Worth Keeping

Sunmi and Chuu are known for their sincere interaction with each other. Fans are familiar with their chemistry, as they have witnessed their friendship develop over the course of Mnet’s program “Running Girls.”

The program featured idols Sunmi, Hani, YooA, Chungha and Chuu.

During that time, one key moment in the show was memorable for the viewers, where Sunmi voiced out excessive traits in every idol life. The caring sunbae then turned to Chuu, mentioning that the former LOONA member had “excessive kindness.”


“Without the word ‘excessive,’ they are all good traits. But the ‘excessive’ part often makes us get hurt. If you’re too kind to others, you might get hurt. That’s what worries me the most.

It begins like, ‘I can give in, I can sacrifice this or that. But when time goes by you get used to it and you start doing it without realizing. In the end, you’re the one who gets hurt and it hurts so much.”
