Sulli had over five million followers on Instagram and was first involved in scandal in 2016 after showing her nipples online. This caused uproar in the traditionally conservative South Korea. 

The ‘no bra’ scandal resurfaced last month when her breasts were shown accidentally during a live Instagram stream. 

Sulli had been a member of the popular K-pop band F(x) but left in 2015 to focus on her acting and solo singing career.
