Kara’s Han Seung Yeon Tells Anti-Fans Exactly How She Feels



Kara‘s Han Seung Yeon recently let anti-fans know that she’s had the last straw.

On December 24, she tweeted, “Netizens who hide in anonymity and claim to represent the masses, do you feel powerful and all-knowing just because you become part of this group?”

She went on, “After standing by and watching, I couldn’t help but say something because it’s just embarrassing to tolerate it any further. If you find something offensive, you don’t have to watch it. If you don’t like it, you can just let it be. Do you always have to express how you feel in order to be satisfied? Well thank you for letting me know.”

She ended her rant by saying, “Look here. You’re wasting your time when you try to ruin the mood of someone you truly dislike. I’m going to be spending my precious time with good people and working hard, so no need to worry about me. Just think about it. Who is the one that needs a reality check?”

Netizens who saw Han Seung Yeon’s tweet commented, “She’s right, lately anti-fans have truly crossed the line,” “Live up to higher standards. Enough with cursing people out,” and “Don’t worry too much anti-fans, they like it more when you give them attention.”

I'll never get sick of idols actually sticking up for themselves, and not taking crap they shouldn't have to.

i think the difference is, if she gets tweets from fans and wants to read them she has to go through all the negative ones as well. but those anti fans could easily avoid her tiwtter or everything because she is not spamming their feeds if they don't want it :/
I get what you mean but i think it's hard to try and ignore negative comments if there are so many...

This. They're also cowardly hiding themselves under annonymous messages, while she has to face them not hiding all the time. To me, what some antis do is just another type of cyber-bullying.

Exactly.

They don't have a fan club or fan mail? I don't think she's having deep meaningful long lasting conversations with fans on twitter. And there's no limit on the amount of people you could block. I mean I get what you're saying as well but if she wants to ignore it she could and still have a close relationship with her fans.

If you get inundated with hate everyday you're bound to see it. That's like saying all celebs can ignore negative comments. I think you are setting yourself up for a fall with having an open space for replies and I think people who constantly complain about it have a hand in what happens but as far as I know this is the first time. If it's really getting to her she should delete her twitter but critique is everywhere and yea it sucks so can you really fault someone for saying anything.

Well no one can ignore EVERY negative thing that's said about them so yeah. I'm not sure she's talking about simple criticisms, I imagine as and idol that went through training she can take those fairly well.

It seems she's complaining about the public voicing their opinion. She's a public figure. It's going to happen forever and always.

Why should she let herself be pushed off twitter or waste her time blocking dozens of antifans, because some people want to be jerks? I think that's how she was feeling when she said "After standing by and watching, I couldn’t help but say something because it’s just embarrassing to tolerate it any further. If she just keeps ignoring it, she feels like she's just taking the abuse, and letting it happen.

Honestly, I think she's smart enough to know that posting those messages isn't going to stop any anti-fans. It's more about her pride, and showing she's not afraid to speak up against them.

waste her time blocking dozens of antifans
Is that really a waste of time though?

I get that she's frustrated and venting and I never thought that her message was meant to actually CHANGE anything but if she can't take people voicing their feelings about her shes in the wrong line of work.

It's part of her very limited free time she could be spending doing something she actually enjoys, if people weren't being such jerks =/.

I understand what you're saying, and I definitely agree that to be a celebrity/artist, you need to have some strength against that stuff. The question is how much should they be expected to take? Hopefully her venting gave her some peace of mind to keep ignoring the antis at least!

The idol life is especially hyperbolic and overwhelming, I would surmise that she has to take a WHOLE lot.

I can't imagine that it'd take too long. And if it's that much of a problem her company should be in her corner and do something about it a la JYP and the Sohee twitter thing.
