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.

honestly, after reading the comments on netizenbuzz i wonder why kids even want to be idols these days. i know netizen comments aren't indicative of skorea as a whole but still, why would they want to put themselves through harsh training, and then under the even harsher public spotlight, considering most of them probably won't make it to snsd-level relevance? surely young trainees have access to the internet and know what's in store for them once they debut.

because they have a dreammmmmmmmmm

nah but some of them also from low income families, and this is their chance to upgrade their living standard and if they're good at being pretty/singing/dancing, why not?

I guess you never really know how hard it will hit you emotionally till you actually get there? Or maybe they do know and just don't mind (or think they won't mind) paying the price, for the love of performing, fame, $$, career, etc.? Even if you're pretty realistic about your chances of debuting/shelf-life/potential relevance (after all, you see idols fading into obscurity left and right), you might think it's worth a shot anyway given the success stories.

yeah, but right now korea is so saturated with kpop, the success stories are few and far between. i'd maybe understand if it was 2008-2009 and kpop was doing pretty well (maybe all the kids debuting now decided they wanted to be idols then, that's why they're so many), but right now it just doesn't seem worth it anymore.
