Younha has deactivated her Twitter account. The 28-year-old South Korean rock music singer/songwriter took the harsh step due to the hatred she received on social media.

Younha tweeted: "I'm going to say one final thing and end it. I can't do anything about those I treasured who turned on me, but don't think lightly of the feelings that I've poured out for you. What about my personality? My mental state? If you met me, you wouldn't be able to say a single thing. Delete the "former" Younha category and just disappear."

However, she is still active on Instagram. Further explaining her decision to leave the micro-blogging website, she wrote: "It's not about whose scars are bigger. Even if we have to go separate ways, let's leave with beautiful memories. I know that the show could end at any moment, including my own stage. Let's leave with good memories because our love was sincere. Let's walk step by step, hand in hand, into the future."
