1. [+1,463, -448] Seeing this makes me sad... I nonetheless congratulate her for overcoming the mental pressure she must've been under and winning silver. Hopefully this is an opportunity for her to mature and grow.

2. [+1,439, -574] Congratulations nonetheless!!

3. [+1,410, -506] Despite it all, you worked hard

4. [+180, -52] She worked hard, she did, but she shouldn't be apologizing to the nation but to Noh Sun Young. I congratulate her but I recommend that she give a genuine apology to her own teammate first..

5. [+140, -57] Look at the best replies, it's pathetic that Koreans are forgiving the attacker... praising her just because she won a medal? This is why victims are too afraid to come forward ㅋㅋ I guess iljins in school can get away with anything as long as they earn good marks ㅋㅋㅋ

6. [+103, -60] Congratulate what!! She needs to learn some character before training her skills

7. [+100, -28] Should've at least said sorry to Noh Sun Young

8. [+84, -39] Wow... look at the change in reaction just because she won a medal

9. [+84, -35] She won a medal in the end... but I'm amazed at her mentality... to have won silver under all that stress.

10. [+54, -9] I feel bad for her on one hand since she won silver but will forever have the memory of it tainted by what she did, but on the other hand, I feel like she deserves the backlash that she got since she hurt someone else and that pain can't just be erased like that. None of this should've ever happened... she made too big of a mistake at too big of an event.

1. [+1,260, -380] Imagine being talented enough to win silver even after your mentality came crumbling down through all that... If only she was more careful, she'd be a hero right now... Instead, reality is saying sorry after winning a medal. Such a sad situation...... Hopefully she's matured through this all. She put on a great match.

2. [+1,014, -467] I hated her so much but seeing her kneel in a bow in front of the Korean flag makes my heart hurt

3. [+955, -396] First time in my life not feeling anything over an athlete who won us a medal ㅡㅡ

4. [+88, -16] What we can learn from the comments today: it doesn't matter if you bully people as long as you get a top rank, which just proves that it isn't the victim who gets to forgive the bully but the public

5. [+72, -10] If she really reflected over this, she should approach Sun Young first and hug her in a sign of apology instead of sitting so far apart and ignoring her.

6. [+68, -16] These shields are making me throw up... if your own family member was bullied, would you be able to forgive them just because they studied hard enough to get a top rank? That's really how this works?

7. [+65, -13] She's obviously talented, why did she act in such a way... she could be getting the hero treatment right now

8. [+50, -8] So a medal forgives everything?? ㅋㅋ She should not be forgiven by the public but by Noh Sun Young. Funny how she never apologizes to her even now.
