Singer-turned-actress Sulli has revealed that she suffers from panic disorder and social phobia. She said she had suffered from panic disorder since she was young.
“Even close people left me. I was hurt by them and felt there was nobody who understands me, which made me fall apart,” she says in a teaser video for her upcoming reality show Jinri Store. The video, which she uploaded on Instagram, has now been taken down.

It is uncommon for a celebrity to reveal mental health problems, with most stars reluctant to speak about their mental issues.
Jinri Store is a reality show, in which Sulli will be CEO of a pop-up store.
Sulli, 24, made her debut as a child actress in 2005 and as a member of K-pop idol group f(x) in 2009 with the album “LA chA TA”. In 2015, she left the group to forge an acting career.
