So we all know that the latest program 'Queendom' which features K-Pop idol girl groups that have already debuted is another survival program that everyone is looking forward to.

The show recently started airing and one episode in particular had a scene where Park Bom at first didn't know who Oh My Girl were. Oh My Girl members were seen squealing when they saw Park Bom and approached her. But Park Bom had to ask which group they were from.

Was It Right Or Wrong Of Park Bom To Not Have Recognized Oh My Girl On 'Queendom'? Netizens Divided

"Hello"

 

Was It Right Or Wrong Of Park Bom To Not Have Recognized Oh My Girl On 'Queendom'? Netizens Divided

"Who...which group are you from?"

So naturally, this probably didn't sit too well with Oh My Girl fans and certain viewers.

On one side, we have people saying that Park Bom was blatantly rude and that it was probably a disappointment to some people and Oh My Girl members.

And on the other side, we have people saying that Park Bom has been away from the K-Pop scene for a while and probably didn't keep up with the girl groups that were appearing left and right. After all, the K-Pop scene actually does have a plethora of girl groups, over three hundred, and for someone who has been away for some time, it might have been hard for her to keep up.

What do you think about the situation?

See this is why the younger groups would normally introduce themselves to seniors first with a greeting. I think in high society etiquette one is supposed to first introduce the person of lower rank, so that the person of higher rank can get away with not having heard of someone less famous than them, without sounding ignorant? On one hand, Bom could have phrased her question less awkwardly. On the other hand, she was nervous, and they could have foreseen this and introduced themselves first. Everyone was awkward! Just like... regular people who are not idols! Gasp, it's almost like… Read more »

I mean it might have been hard for her to recognise who the individual members were, and Oh My Girl only really started gaining popularity in 2017. The members did mention themselves in the episode that their songs aren't really well known, their most popular song is the fifth season which only came out this year so it's understandable that Park Bom is not completely familiar with them, she has had a lot of time away from the industry, and she likely didn't even know who would be competing on the show.

She also said it when omg were walking out, she might not have wanted to be awkward so asking who they were is polite because she's like trying to get to know who they are idk.

The problem is the people that keep judging park bom for not recognizing the Oh My Girl, even me i didnt know them but of course I dont have a right. Park bom has been in industry for almost a decade now, so please just stop the jugdement for her. Peace out!

Cmon give Bom some rest. There's a lot of girl groups now and you'll really wonder who's who especially when they almost have same faces and looks. I didnt even now Oh my Girl before this year. Even now I'm still confused between Lovelyz and Oh My girl if I dont see Seunghee, Yooa And Kei in their groups, I'll never be able to differentiate. People need to get their chill. Atleast bom asked who they were. Its more embarassing if she called them for another group.

it’s crazy how people are like “it’s okay if park bom doesn’t recognize them bc she’s older”. imagine the situation being flipped and omg were the ones who didn’t know bom. netizens and die hard fans would bash on them so hard. as for park bom, it weird how she doesn’t know them that well when they [Oh My Girl] were active the same time as them. short, but enough for new groups to come into 2ne1’s dressing room and give them a CD

First- no they weren't active at the same time. OMG debuted 2015 while 2NE1 was already on indefinite hiatus
Second- BOM was in the middle of being attacked from all sides (media, netizens, some rookies who dissed her) for being a "druggie" & "drug dealer"

I've heard no one say "it's okay because she's a senior" (tbh if that were the case it'd still be true. She's not just any senior but 1/4 of one of the most influential groups in KPOP). People give her a pass because they know the above mentioned first and second points.

Honestly, don’t bash her for this, Park Bom has been active since 2006, and was born before that, it’s like if a rookie doesn’t know an older group. It’s ok. Park Bom has know many groups and it’s hard to remember. I don’t think it’s a problem if she knows who they are now.
