I don’t think today was meant to be a slow and peaceful day. Yesterday was too good to be true so it’s only right that today be full of angst to go along with the joy. It’s like a high school soap opera in the kpop world. Starting with Taeyeon saying how she feels about her solo debut on M! Countdown. Quite naturally she was nervous about performing solo when asked but then there’s this thing with netizens accusing her of plastic surgery. And then with the announcement that IU is dating singer-songwriter Chang Ki Ha, more problems arose. Now you guys should know by now that I hate, absolutely hate, talking about dating. It’s gossip and frankly not my business. But for today I break my rules a bit because of what model Jung Doo Ri said on her twitter.
But what did she say? (source: koreaboo)
“IU, stop acting like this. Are you crazy.”
“You’re a woman with a top-rated face in Korean society, so why? First Sulli, now you… Did your powerful uncle fans put a corset on you. You’ve been caught, you’re out.”
Ok what? I’m not sure she really honestly thought people would get as upset as they did. But the backlash was pretty massive with fans of IU and EXO coming out the woodwork. (And of course there were f(x) fans in the mix.) It was so bad she actually had to release an apology! It was pretty long winded but basically she said in short, “I didn’t think it was that serious!”
“I love beautiful girls like IU. I can’t help it. Because of that my emotions tend to come out by my mouth a lot but in order to become that kind of beautiful girl (ㅆㅅㅌㅊ), I wish you would date pretty and young guys like you. Of course, arguing about someone else’s relationship is funny but isn’t Twitter originally space for private conversations? Ah to the EXO fandom, I’m sorry. I don’t know Uaena’s (IU fandom) that well but when I looked at pictures, since they appeared to be such good looking, young, and fresh men, I went ahead and ended up using my mouth to express [such] emotions. I hadn’t known that would be a disturbance among the fandoms.”
“Anyway, wanting to see a beautiful girl X beautiful boy celebrity couple was my honest feelings. Before going around, pointing out who I antagonised or did whatever. Ah, and everyone knows that the use of the word ㅆㅅㅌㅊ is a mirroring right? ^^ To be honest, I also think of IU as a great and beautiful musician of Korea.”
I’m not sure everybody got the apology because they are still kinda going back and forth on her twitter. This might take a while to simmer down.
After all that drama, let’s end with something pleasant. Kyuhyun is getting ready for a comeback! He released the cutest teaser video for “A Million Pieces” and it has f(x)’s Amber in it!
