On September 17, Sulli held a live broadcast to interact with her fans while enjoying a night out with one of her friends at a pub. Sulli and her friend were seen enjoying a good time, until a man approached Sulli claiming that he was a big fan of hers. Sulli's smile instantly disappeared, and she continued to stare at the man while her friend tried to laugh out the whole situation. Thanks to her friend, Sulli managed to smile again and continued her live broadcast in a cheerful mood. However, the fan came to their table again and said, 'Sulli, Can you please say this (to the camera)?' Frightened by the man's sudden and disrespectful request, Sulli immediately hid her face with her arms. Sulli's friend refused the man's request and asked Sulli if she wanted to end the live broadcast. Still shivering, Sulli nodded to end the broadcast; and the whole situation sparked concerns among her fans. Fans commented, 'How dare you being so outrageously rude to her!', 'Is he out of his mind?', 'I feel so sorry for Sulli... I would've also been terrified if I were her.', and more.

[SBS Star] Divorce Lawyer Predicts Koo Hye Sun & Ahn Jae Hyeon Won't Be able to Divorce
A divorce lawyer was questioned about how likely it was for actor Ahn Jae Hyeon to win the divorce case against his wife actress Koo Hye Sun. On September 10 episode of SBS 'Han Bam', the program interviewed divorce lawyer Kim Min-sung regarding Koo Hye Sun and Ahn Jae Hyeon's divorce case. During the interview, the lawyer said, 'At the end, one of them will be revealed to have been lying.' He continued, 'Koo Hye Sun continued to speak up and claimed that she had proof. If Ahn Jae Hyeon's faults are proven, the divorce will be stopped as Koo Hye Sun is hoping for.' Then the lawyer predicted that the court will likely put fault on her for the separation if Koo Hye Sun is lying. He said, 'If Ahn Jae Hyeon's faults aren't proven, the court will probably focus on whether Koo Hye Sun really wanted to continue on their relationship as a married couple. If that happens, the divorce will most likely be granted.' Back on September 5, Ahn Jae Hyeon's legal representative stated that the actor filed a divorce lawsuit against Koo Hye Sun.
