We're living in an age where pretty much anything that we say can potentially offend or trigger anyone.
But it seems that some K-Pop idols live in their own world and aren't afraid to say anything. From vulgarity to downright racist remarks, there have been some controversial statements that K-Pop idols have actually said in the past.
You can check them out below!
The Girls' Generation member isn't just famous for being in one of the most popular K-Pop girl groups in the world. She is also famous for saying US R&B artist Alicia Keys is "pretty for a black person".
HwaYoung (Former BOYS24 Member)
We don't really know what K-Pop idols actually think about their fans, but we certainly hope that they aren't like HwaYoung, who stated that it is annoying to meet the large number of fans at hi-touch events because they are annoying and have bad breath. He has also said that meeting all those fans makes him want to throw up. The story you just read explains why he is now a former member of BOYS24.
Kim JaeJoong (JYJ)
Probably the only justifiable controversial statement. JaeJoong once vented out to a sasaeng fan for harassing him, but the only problem was he used the word f*** so many times it's actually hard to keep count.
Below is the audio clip.
YeRi (Red Velvet)
YeRi once said that it was an honor to meet North Korean dictator Kim JongUn, who is responsible for the death of millions of North Koreans. She was heavily criticized by academics in South Korea for saying it was an honor meeting a criminal.
