Former 2NE1 member Minzy did not let her previous affiliation as a YG idol deter her from praising the abilities of f(x) member Luna, although some critics bristled at the supportive gesture.

"Check this out this girl @hermosavidaluna she is born with amazing talents," wrote Minzy on Instagram, refering to the handle of Luna and also posting a promotional image of Luna's new album Free Somebody.

While Luna fans thanked Minzy for getting behind their favorite idol, some expressed disappointment that Minzy shows more support to non-YG artists than her previous labelmates.

"Funny how you never seemed to show any support to your former company's artists releases. Goes to show that you really planned to leave after all," said one commenter, referring to Minzy's decision not to renew her contract with YG Entertainment which led to her recent departure from 2NE1.

Other fans though rushed to Minzy's defense, saying: "She has no obligation to post about 2NE1 anymore. Just because she is moving on and finding her happiness doesn't mean she isn't grateful for her time in 2NE1. She already wrote he letter of appreciation with 2ne1 before she left. Time for fans to move on."

Free Somebody is Luna's first solo album, and it contains six songs, including the same-named title track. SM Entertainment described the title track as "an electronic pop dance song with the lyrics about wanting to help the others free themselves and find their true selves by freely pursuing the dreams in their hearts."

The "Free Somebody" music video was released on May 30 and has so far accumulated more than 1 million views. The track can be listened and downloaded on iTunes & Apple Music, Spotify, and Google Play Music.

SM Entertainment has been on a roll with recent solo album releases for their veteran idols, including Girls' Generation's Tiffany, SHINee's Jonghyun and now Luna.

How do you feel about Minzy's show of support for Luna?
