K-Pop Idols Accused Of Holding Back Their Group Members

IU – [BEHIND] ‘Blueming’ M/V Sketch Film

Twitter

In an environment where team effort is crucial for success, it’s important that individuals put their team as whole first before themselves for the greater good. This means being careful with one’s actions as not to indirectly bring trouble, communicating effectively, and basically just thinking about what is best for everyone and not for one’s self.

But sometimes, it’s not even about that at all. There have also been cases where netizens were being critical just because they didn’t like some idols. Such cases have proved to be toxic and hurt the idols in many ways.

You can check them out below.

 

Lee JaeJun

During the survival program MIXNINE, JaeJun was heavily criticized by viewers of the show for his stubbornness. He seemed enthusiastic initially as he stepped up and showed interest in trying out for difficult parts for performances. The only problem was that not all his team mates agreed that he was able to execute it properly. Despite what the team thought, he continued to insist that he could take on main parts. In the end, his team ended up losing a hefty amount of points during the evaluation round. Netizens have literally bombarded him with comments that he should stop being the weak link and harming his team’s efforts.

RM

Yes, even world superstar RM has gone through this ordeal as well. During BTS’s earlier days, South Korean netizens felt that RM wasn’t as attractive as the other members and hurled hurtful comments to him and told him to leave as they felt he was holding them back.

Park Bom

Many South Korean netizens accused Park Bom of being the reason for 2NE1’s disbandment as they feel her drug incident was a catalyst for the girl group’s gradual downfall. YG Entertainment CEO Yang HyunSuk cited the status of Park Bom’s mental health status as one reason that 2NE1 couldn’t continue together as a group back in 2014. While 2NE1 fans don’t necessarily think it was Park Bom, from a non-fan’s perspective, it definitely seemed so.

E’Dawn

After it was revealed that the Pentagon member was dating HyunA, many South Korean fans were in uproar, not because he was dating her but because he lied about it initially by saying he never dated. While Western fans seemed to sympathize with him, the majority of South Korean fans felt betrayed and protested against him. Some people who were watching the whole thing go down online stated that Pentagon was a group that had to go through a much more difficult process to see the success they have today, and E’Dawn’s actions weren’t helping but destroying those efforts.

YeRi

The Red Velvet member made news headlines in South Korea when netizens began criticizing her for not putting effort in trying to get the group’s choreography together in sync. Once it was proven that she was able to dance in sync, instead of complimenting her, netizens attacked her again and stated that she was intentionally slacking off and damaged the efforts of Red Velvet as a whole.

Stop harassing E’dawn. My boy has his own life and is allowed to do whatever he wants. Its human rights. Stop thinking that Hyuna or E’dawn belongs to you and don’t tell me you’ve never lied before. If we can lie and date whoever the f**k we want, why can’t kpop idols. Dont get me started about Yeri. First you say she’s out of sync. Okay she practised. Then you said she’s purposely slacking after she got in sync. Do you know why she is out of sync? Because she cant practice properly. Why? Because she is bombarded with hate… Read more »

Do people realize that Red Velvet wouldn’t be the same without Yeri and Namjoon is BTS’s leader. Don’t get me started about that fact people think E’dawn is holding back his group. People are so stupid.

RM is literally the brains behind most of BTS’ creative direction. And I can’tbe the only one who got into Pentagon for E’Dawn
