Sooyoung boyfriend, Jung Kyung Ho, recently made the decision to follow his girlfriend on Instagram, and that led to a bunch of backlash from K-SONES for whatever fucking reason.
One commenter says, “Listen. I can’t believe this. If you like your girlfriend so much, then be a little considerate. Are you aware of the fact that Sooyoung is an idol? I don’t understand what you’re doing, when she is keeping quiet. Fans only want to see Sooyoung, so when other people start getting involved, they really hate it. You couldn’t bear to keep your mouth shut even before the [dating] news came out, and now you’re just doing whatever. Think a little bit about what ramifications your actions have and who bears the burden of them. You’re so frustrating.”
Another commenter ironically says, “I really don’t curse and criticize people dating idols like all those crazy fans, and I think it’s quite embarrassing to do so, but I have to say something to you.” The commenter goes on to say how Jung Kyung Ho is so inconsiderate and that he must think so little of Sooyoung’s fans, etc.
The list of similar comments goes on and on: “Following Sooyoung isn’t respectful to Sooyoung’s fans,” “We really don’t like you,” “You’re so selfish,” “Do you not care because you’re not famous?”
A fan calling a dude “so frustrating” for following his girlfriend on social media has to be up there on the scales of irony, right? It’s like these people have no mirrors or something.
Also, this is another nice reminder that for as passionate and unhinged as international SONES can be, they absolutely pale in comparison to Korean SONES, who would likely start World War III for the group if they wanted.
