Harisu opened up about dealing with the negativity and malicious comments.
Korea's first transgender star, Harisu, recently made her comeback as a singer in 6 years. Prior to her comeback, Harisu made headlines for various issues including her divorce and was targeted with malicious comments.
Regarding the difficult time, Harisu said, "I'm indifferent about the malicious comments and rumors that have existed ever since my debut. Of course, I get mad and upset but I think I just need to accept them."
However, Harisu shared it's hard to see her family suffer from the malicious posts. She said, "Watching my family and peers stressed out and having a hard time because of me was the hardest thing for me. What stressed me the most wasn't the attention on me but the pain my family had to endure."
She emphasized, "Please get rid of the prejudice." Harisu added, "Of course, I'm not a normal person so I'm not refuting that, but I just hope the harsh curse words and rumors that bother me would stop. I just want to be perceived as a non-overwhelming celebrity."
