'Sulli's Law' gains more attention as politicians prepare to present the law battling malicious comments before the National Assembly


'Sulli's Law' is gaining growing attention as politicians prepare to present the law before the National Assembly in early December. 

The law will focus on reducing the number of malicious comments online and anticipation for its results is growing as fans demand that a change occur. 

Although the exact language of the law is not yet available, much discussion is being held regarding the high ideas but difficult execution that must take place in order to effectively institute change without being unconstitutional. The New Alternative Party in Korea is specifically focused on bringing justice after Sulli's passing, accusing malicious commenters of "social murder".

What are your thoughts on this matter?

Nope, this law won't help nor change anything. The issue aren't (solely) malicious comments, but how mental health in general is handled there. As long as Korea doesn't treat mental health right (i.e. supporting people that suffer from depression instead of acting like depression doesn't exist and overall changing their attitude towards it), there will always be suicides.

I really hoped that people would learn from SHINee's Jonghyun's death, but I guess I expected too much.

SULLI's Law introduction- it's high time it's over-due in South Korea! Sulli passing-on is undeniably spurred by 'death by text'. Let's hope there won't be anymore - neither of celebrity nor ordinary pple! 'Without Prejudice' re-posting an online news report below some may be already in the know:

The death of a Filipino-American Boston College student who took his own life after being subjected to repeated psychological, verbal and physical abuse by his girlfriend highlights a need to re-examine laws and attitudes towards social media and gender-based bullying, experts say.In a case that has grabbed headlines in both Asia and America, the South Korean national In-young You, 21, has been indicted by prosecutors in the United States on an involuntary manslaughter.

In America, the case has been seized upon as the country’s second so-called “death by text” case, compared by some to that of high school student Conrad Roy III, whose long-distance girlfriend Michelle Carter was sentenced to 15 months in prison for encouraging him to take his own life. That case prompted the introduction of a bill calling for a “Conrad’s Law”, which would punish those guilty of “suicide coercion” with up to five years in prison.
