Former K-pop idol Jiae (지애) recently surprised her followers by coming out as a bisexual.

The singer-turn-vlogger, who found fame as a member of the girl group WA$$UP back in 2013, took to her Instagram stories claiming that she’s into both genders.

In one of the photos she uploaded, she asked, “I love man and.. woman. Can you understand?” The 24-year-old posted another picture, claiming that she’s currently in a relationship, “I have a lovely girlfriend so…happy 😊!” Jiae declared.

International K-fans have flocked in the comments section to show their undying support towards the bombshell for coming out. However, it’s believed that the news about her has not been made public by any local news outlet at the time of writing (Monday, 13th January).

Therefore, many fans have been showing their concerns that Jiae will be heavily criticised by Korean netizens for her queerness, since the topic is highly considered as taboo among the conservative society.

For those who don’t know, Jiae made her official debut as a member of the now-defunct girl band back in 2013. The group disbanded last year, with their final album “Colour TV” being released back in April 2017.

Jiae also participated in KBS survival programme “The Unit” with fellow member Nari. However, she didn’t pass the audition stage. For those interested, check out some of their past songs here:

We believe it’s not easy to come out with such decision. All the best for Jiae’s relationship with her partner.
