Sulli has left her legacy in the posthumous Netflix documentary Persona: Sulli. This is the last ever piece of work by the late artist and follows her story of identity, fame, and struggle.

The documentary comprises two parts: an opening play titled 4: Clean Island, and the documentary itself, titled Dear Jinri.

The first drama 4: Clean Island follows a pig named 4 on its voyage to the clean island, where everything is pure. However, in order to do so, it must confess to all of its misdeeds committed during its lifetime. Meanwhile, a young girl assumes the identity of the pig, and the adventure eventually becomes hers. Directed by Hwang Soo Ah, known for Why Did You Come to My House, and co-directed by Kim Ji Hye, the mind behind the drama Lost, this short film delves into her quest for a new life.

Dear Jinri talks about the multiple lives existing inside of her. This piece dives deeply into the minds of both the artist, Sulli, and the human, Choi Jinri.  Sulli was found dead in her home by her manager on October 14, 2019. Directed by Jung Yoon Seok, the award-winning director of Non-Fiction Diary at the 64th Berlin International Film Festival, the film sheds light on the personal reflections and concerns experienced by Sulli.

The two-part film premiered at the 28th Busan International Film Festival, creating a buzz with sold-out screenings upon ticket release.

Here are some viewer reactions to her posthumous Netflix series.

Clean Island. It was such a strange yet beautiful story. Sulli’s innate innocent look, intense gaze and powerful energy are just mesmerizing. Every time I watch it, I find new insights and hidden meanings. It’s not just for Sulli’s fans—everyone should definitely give it a watch.”

“I’m watching episode 2 of Persona: Sulli after episode 1, and my heart just feels like it’s breaking into a million pieces.

Someone should have just taken her out, given her a good meal, gotten her to the hospital for a checkup, wrapped her up in the softest blanket, and held her close for at least two hours instead of interviewing her…”
