LOEN SPEAKS

With the recent surfacing of a photo showing IU and Eunhyuk together that was accidentally revealed through IU’s Twitter, fans and netizens alike had been awaiting an official statement from the artists’ respective agencies.

It seems Loen Entertainment is the first to break their silence as they have just released an official statement on the issue:



Hello. This is Loen Entertainment.

This is an official statement regarding the picture that was revealed early this morning through IU’s Twitter.

First, we bow our heads and sincerely apologize for causing concern to all the representatives and all the fans of IU and Super Junior.

The revealed photo was from this summer when IU was very sick and Eunhyuk had come to visit her at her home, and was taken then when they sat on the sofa together; it was revealed to the outside due to IU’s mistake through her related photo uploading service while IU was making a mention on Twitter.

IU is sincerely sorry for bringing harm to her sunbae Eunhyuk due to her error.

Lastly, IU and Eunhyuk are close sunbae-hoobae who have been close since IU’s debut, Eunhyuk is close to the point that he has even dined with IU’s mother. We ask that you do not exaggerate or make assumptions about IU and Eunhyuk’s relationship due to this incident.

We will return to greet you as a more matured agency after having learned from this incident. We apologize once again.

We are sorry.

Loen Entertainment

This is slightly off topic, but I'm wondering how many of these idols actually like their fans. I mean, I think they appreciate that the fans care so much about them but don't you think after a certain point, idols would get sick of them for trying to control their lives and dismissing the fact that idols are also humans?

I'm just thinking about this because fans always mention their favorite idols and post creepy stuff, like "oppa I want you to have my babies" or something like that and I'm sure the idols read a lot of, if not most, of the mentions they receive. Even the fans who aren't to the sasaeng level act like this. I don't know, I'm just convinced that a lot of idols are putting on a facade so that they don't appear ungrateful.

Yeah. And then after some time those rookies also face the same crazy fans and feel suffocated by them.

Some idols do seem genuine about their appreciation though. I wonder how they can tolerate it all.

I feel like there would be stages. At debut, everything would be so new and exciting and they would be just love all the attention. A year or two down the road I feel like that's when they would realize how cray cray their fans can be and might get angry or frustrated because of the lack of space. By the time they've been around for several years, they'll just accept it as a fact of life. Though with occasional blow ups. Case and point, Heechul quitting twitter because the sasaengs were getting on his nerves.

This might sound really harsh but I feel idols/their companies have no one to blame but themselves for their fans thinking they can control their lives.

Feeling that you are doing something wrong and have to apologize because you're in a relationship is just feeding the crazy.

I'm not really talking about this particular situation. Just the idea of having seemingly "normal" fans stalk you in the airport or flash cameras in your face or tweet creepy things to you or going out of their way to make sure their favorite idols receive their presents, etc. I don't know if I'm making myself clear but just the 'everyday things' that fans do to show how much they love these idols. It's so suffocating.

I understand that they are celebrities and they should expect some restrictions on their freedom, but I also think fans are insane in thinking that they have the right to approach their idols at any time and invade their privacy. If I were an idol, I'd be pretty damn pissed that fans don't understand basic human rights.

Anyway I think I'm kind of straying from what I originally was talking about, but yeah. Haha. I just think idols are people too and am curious to know whether they like their fans as much as they claim. Because it's difficult to truly appreciate your fans if they act like a bunch of crazies.
