K-Pop Idols Who Reacted To Hate Comments
Being a part of the entertainment industry is not an easy thing to do. Just like the amount of love and support they receive, stars also receive a lot of bad comments from haters too. There are many various ways to deal with the haters. Some agencies even go as far as taking legal action if their artist receives malicious comments. There are also artists who reply to the hate comments if they find them really annoying.
In this article, Channel-Korea will provide you with a feature of some idols who have reacted to hate comments. Check it out!
During a Vlive, there was a person who seemed to have left some bad comments in the comment section. The person said that Shuhua of (G)I-DLE is ugly. It’s the same person who called her fellow group member Soojin ugly too, during Soojin’s Vlive. Shuhua told the person to go and not watch the Vlive because they are ruining the atmosphere. Shuhua said, “It’s okay for me but… I won’t take it personally but other people can get hurt instead. Does it make any sense?” Her fellow member, Miyeon came in and joined the Vlive and she told her about the hate comments that she received.

LOVELYZ’s Baby Soul & Ji-Ae
In 2019, while Lovelyz‘s Baby Soul and Ji-ae were doing a live stream, some malicious comments were posted in the comment section. When they read the comments, they replied back. Ji-ae said, “If you don’t like it, get out!” responding to the comments. Baby Soul also added, “There’s no reason to look at something you don’t like.” Ji-ae said that typing like that (bad comments) is a stupid thing that only hurts your fingers.

In December 2019, Gugudan’s Kim Sejeong got some malicious comments during a live stream. During the Vlive on Gugudan’s official channel, Sejeong happened to read a comment that said, “You look like a puppet K-Pop idol, who dances and sings for making money.” Sejeong calmly replied: “What’s wrong with dancing and singing to make money? People need to make money. However, I’m good, right? Cool and beautiful. I’m proud of myself.” She continued, “Don’t you think it’s cool to make money by dancing and singing coolly and beautifully?”
Her fellow member also got some malicious comments when doing a Vlive. This time, it came from Sejeong’s akgae. The hateful remarks stated, “Stop blocking Kim Se Jung’s way and get lost,” “I’m only waiting for Kim Se Jung’s solo,” “All of you b****es f*** off and let SeJeong debut on her own!” etc. The members did their best to ignore the malicious comments but their faces revealed that they were having a hard time doing so.
During a Vlive, Jackson got some malicious comments. He was talking about JB and Jinyoung’s JJ Project as well as his upcoming solo song. He also saw the comments when talking about it. But then, haters started leaving comments in Chinese saying that Jackson should leave GOT7 and return to China.
Jackson replied to the comment in Chinese by saying, “When I do some things, a lot of people like it, but also a lot of people don’t like it. Hate comments just make me stronger. To all the people who don’t like me: I’m going to work harder and become stronger. Every time you write hate comments, I work harder. Thank you.” He also said in Korean that he’s going to work harder and succeed. “I’m just going to work hard as GOT7’s Jackson, and succeed as GOT7’s Jackson. A person’s mouth is their own, and you can’t stop what they say. So I don’t really have anything to say against that. I just have to keep working hard as GOT7’s Jackson. I’ll work hard and succeed.”

During the Vlive with Young-jae and Jin-young, Jackson received a comment that said, “When Jackson speaks in Korean, he still sounds ching.” Ching here refers to Ching Cong which signifies an onomatopoeic mimicry representing Asian otherness. As we know, Jackson was born in Hong Kong, China.
