Stories saying that Jang Moonbok is only getting troll votes is FAKE NEWS

People have been going around slandering Jang Moonbok fans recently, trying to say that all of them are doing it in revenge for one member or another being voted into IOI or they’re all trolling because Jang Moonbok is “ugly” or “untalented” or “weird”. And while there are undoubtedly trolls involved in this, there’s also many people who are simply drawn to his story, his ability to turn a potentially traumatizing incident into gold, and quite frankly he’s just well known because of that audition.

Once again, listen to Bumdidlyumptious spit truth.

I’m in the same boat. I didn’t watch ‘Produce 101‘ — even though I should since I don’t get a lot of references (didn’t watch ‘SIXTEEN‘ either) — and I joke about him a lot, but I’m serious when I say I’m gonna vote for Jang Moonbok. Ever since his iconic audition back in 2010 on ‘Superstar K,’ he’s provided me with entertainment in one form or another, and this is my chance to repay that.

Dude deserves that much.

As I’ve highlighted, he’s never shied away from making fun of himself, and he’s been nothing but self-aware on shows like ‘God Of Music‘ (both seasons). Hell, he does it in his own introduction from ‘Produce 101’.

Of course, I like weird, and Outsider and 2Tak tell it.

He even got a commercial deal from LG

…and appeared on ‘Saturday Night Live Korea‘.

What’s not to like?

Then of course there was his debut single last year, “Hip Hop President,” which basically told the story of why people support him now.

I thought I could become a superstar, but I met ridicule,
With my appearance, the whole world pointed fingers at me,
In this empty room, I just stayed in and complained,
I was just a middle-school grader who liked to rap,
I was too young to understand the situation,
Wherever I was going, it felt like I was walking in a desert,
I was just made a funny dropout on the show, I felt like I lost everything,
How naive was I, that even though I was being laughed at,
I endured it by just laughing,
I couldn’t do anything, so I waited silently for a few years,
Still, some cheered me on and waited,
The time of being unable to speak, I hate it,
I won’t be the one to make jokes anymore,
I will rightly show my sincerity.

Ring ring, the phone goes off,
The other kids’ cruel words cut through my ears,
Check check, making fun of the son,
Making the mother cry,
A trembling voice everyday due to anger and desolation,
I know more than anyone that I’m lacking even if you don’t say it,
But achieving a dream is like breathing to me,
So I can’t let go of the mic check.

No top class, I’m just a Korean,
Even if no one knows who that extraterrestrial rap six years ago was for,
Watch me now carefully, I’m still rapping today,
Can you hear me?
My friends tell me, “Are you really going to do it?”
Although I heard abusive words, what I want is exactly this,
I tried hard every day, stayed up night after night,
Left my home to make all the arrows headed towards me go away,
And the moment I stood on the stage again,
The fear from that day plagued me,
But my excitement and passion kept me moving,
I won today, even if anyone blocks my way now,
I’ll keep on walking even if I become a failure,
I want to break away from the time of being unable to speak,
And leave the life of being a joke, let’s go to El Dorado.

Ring ring, the phone goes off,
The other kids’ cruel words cut through my ears,
Check check, making fun of the son,
Making the mother cry,
A trembling voice everyday due to anger and desolation,
I know more than anyone that I’m lacking even if you don’t say it,
But achieving a dream is like breathing to me,
So I can’t let go of the mic check.

Jang Moonbok, also known as Hip Hop President,
Everyone laughs at me, but I’ll laugh and let it pass,
I have to find what I have to do,
Even if I hear abusive words, I will find music.

“He doesn’t have talent or anything.”
I get humiliated and ignored, that’s all okay,
I just can’t bear the sight of my only mother’s tears,
I can’t be a bad son, so I’ll choose to sing my songs,
While others were walking a flower path and receiving love,
I rolled in from the mud,
I never thought winning would be easy,
But I will hold out without giving up,
Until the flower blooms.

Nothing more hip-hop than that.

Anyway, here he is dancing to BLACKPINK‘s “Whistle“…

…and Red Velvet‘s “Russian Roulette“…

…and he also did Piko Taro‘s “PPAP“.

Seo Ji Soo of Lovelyz? Yeah, she’s on team Jang Moonbok.

Why wouldn’t she be? If anybody knows the struggles of wading through bullshit, it’s her.

Then on a personal level, he likes baseball, soccer, and sports.

GOAT

So what I’m saying is, there’s a lot of legit reasons people are supporting him, mainly because he’s funny, has shown a self-awareness, and he basically made lemonade from lemons. Also, the fact of the matter is that his infamous audition made him more famous than everybody else on this show, so he’s a known commodity to begin with. Nobody’s gonna get as much support as he is just out of some dumbass bitter virgins mad about IOI.

So once again, vote for Jang Moonbok.
