The Night of Hate Comments (Korean: 악플의 밤), also called The Night of Vicious Comments, is a South Korean variety program on JTBC2 which first aired on June 21, 2019. The show's four hosts, Shin Dong-yup, Kim Sook, Kim Jong-min and Sulli welcome a celebrity guest each week to discuss their reactions to hateful comments, malicious rumors, and cyberbullying they have encountered online. JTBC called it a new show "to help the stars become stronger psychologically". The show also brings up proper internet manners and etiquette.
The show's producing director is Lee Na-ra who produced another JTBC variety show, LAN Cable Life. Along with three hosts in their 40's, it was the first long-term hosting role for 25-year-old Sulli and her return to TV work after a number of years.
First episode with hosts
On the first episode there was no guest and the four hosts read and discussed their own SNS comments, setting the show's tone. Sometimes they agreed or disagreed with the commenters. During Sulli's turn, she responded cheerfully to the mean spirited comments. She agreed with a commenter that said her biggest success is her social presence on SNS and that she is an attention seeker. She disagreed with a commenter who said she looked like a "druggie" because of her large dilated pupils, saying that she has done nothing illegal, but had studied drug behavior during method acting. And she denied going braless to seek attention, saying that for her it was more comfortable, as well as natural and beautiful. She said she sees bras as an accessory that she sometimes wears, and she had continued to go braless after it became a controversy, to help make the prejudice disappear. Discussing past malicious comments she had received, Sulli said she had started to sue, but the commenter, a student at a prestigiuos college, had sent a long letter of apology, and she had forgiven them. However, she said she would not do the same again.
