Former f(x) member Sulli has uploaded an intriguing Instagram image of her showing the backside of a miniature of a naked woman that provoked cyber bullies and reignited the dying embers of a free-for-all online comment battle.

For weeks, the 22-year-old had seen a barrage of hate and malicious comments on her Instagram. The most recent battle took place last week when images of herself wearing only a slip and lolling in a bedroom turned her Instagram into an online colosseum.

The new post uploaded on Wednesday drew more Instagram users than last week's, pulling more than 390,000 likes and 2,800 comments in just 24 hours. Some criticized Sulli as an immature person who has thoughtlessly uploaded controversial images 

An Instagrammer "kmj11011234" pointed out, "I think you have done a good job in drawing all these people to your Instagram. I think you crave for attention. You need help." Another user "gogoup_" said: "It would be better to us if Sulli uploads her nude picture rather than a naked miniature."

Unlike a previous fuss, the new post had more users standing up for the singer. "ioio_iou" roared, "It's only a picture of a miniature! Just leave her alone!"

The singer has been under a constant online attack over Instagram pictures which reminded some fans of the image of a cute and sexy teenage girls. She has often launched counterattacks with provocative images and videos.

Sulli's pert reaction is rare as a celebrity in South Korea's entertainment circle. Many celebrities go low-profile, sometimes ending up making apologies even if they didn't do anything bad.
