The K-Pop fandom and Sunmi’s fans in particular are wondering if the singer didn’t just come out of the closet! The star showed obvious support towards the LGBTQ+ community without going into great detail about her own sexuality however, which is why social media is debating the topic!
Sunmi made many very happy when she declared that ‘I have many different sides of me…like dorky and LGBT queen!’
A lot of people have been celebrating Pride month and the 27-year-old Korean idol just joined the list!
At the time she made this statement, the star was on stage at her Amsterdam stop, part of her world tour and her audience cheered loudly.
She went on to say: ‘And a bright side of me and a dark side of me, yeah. There are sides of me I know very well, like I just said. And sometimes there are times when I don’t know myself well. So sometimes I wonder other things about me.’
Later on during the show, Sunmi yelled ‘Happy Pride!’ and even wrapped herself in a rainbow flag she’d received from a fan.

As you can imagine, her words caused a stir online.
Here are a few of the reactions from fans: ‘WAIT DID SUNMI REALLY COME OUT OMG OMG.’ / ‘WAIT DID SUNMI COME OUT??? IM REALLY CONFUSED ON WHAT SHE JUST SAID.’
No matter what she may have meant by that, most online users were just super happy and proud she acknowledged the community since South Korea is still fighting for equal rights for LGBTQ members at the moment.
I’m fucking shaking- Sunmi-
Whether she came out or not this is still HUGE and I am so freaking happy I can’t even process this ✨😭

‘I’m so proud of sunmi i literally felt shivers down my spine, my god. she’s helping A LOT the Korean lgbt community, i hope she knows she did an amazing thing for herself and for all the people who’ll feel encouraged to come out and live happily,’ another gushed.
