On Jan. 22, Dasom uploaded a photo on her Instagram showing a screenshot of a hateful private message she had received.
In the caption of the photo, Dasom wrote, "I can usually hold back, but saying that my parents are dead on my father's birthday is something I can't let go. I've held back for six years, but now things are very difficult. I feel like dying."
In the now-deleted photo, one person sent an explicit, hateful private message to Dasom, insulting her parents and telling Dasom, "I hope you get into a car crash and die."
In response to the brutally rude comment, Dasom did not hold back and expressed her thoughts to ther user.
"You have a pitiful life. You must be really hurting on the inside to send these kinds of messages. I'll pray for you and your miserable existence," she responded.
However, her response only fueled the anger of the anti-fan, who came back at her with a long paragraph insulting Dasom, her idol lifestyle, her parents, and more.
Though Dasom did not respond back, she opted to upload a screenshot of the conversation on Instagram with hundreds of fans and followers leaving supportive messages under the photo.
