Eunhyuk gets flak for his latest joke on Strong Heart

Another guest on Strong Heart was talking about his search ranking for some event in 2009 and Eunhyuk chimed in to add, "My rank was #235 at the time. Although now, I'm sure it's gotten up much more." The MCs asked, "I wonder why?"

1. [+639, -80] Do you not have a brain? Think before you speak;

2. [+565, -68] What an idiot

3. [+560, -80] You trash, you really have nothing other to use for the show than that?

More under the cutCollapse )

for all the elf here...

what else does happen to Eunhyuk, individually, in the last month that will make his name (not suju) goes up in rank..

I would like to give him a benefit of doubt, but we know this is not the case. He refer to his recent scandal with IU, and it's faaar too soon to make a light joke about something that could destroy IU career forever. He just have a loose mouth, and he should not sacrifice other just to make a joke..
toshi830 16th-Jan-2013 04:19 am (UTC)
that he's sexy, free, and single, and ready to bingo?

I'll see myself out...
purekpopology 16th-Jan-2013 04:08 am (UTC)
I agree that the joke was in poor taste considering the negative effect it's had on IU's reputation.

I wouldn't of thought he was talking about IU when he mentioned it. Just in general that he'd gained more interest popularity. Although considering Super Junior members are for the most part shit stains I guess he was making light of the situation.

aifurikuri 16th-Jan-2013 04:09 am (UTC)
are they going out?
were they ever going out?
was there even anything happening in that photo?
i just wonder...
obviousgirl 16th-Jan-2013 05:41 am (UTC)

lol he sucks. i met him at his cafe and he said i had "hip hop style." i was wearing a peacoat and jeans. i guess my being black was enough to make me hip hop.

Why exactly SHOULDN'T Eunhyuk get away from this scandal without a dent to his image, hmm? Did he post that incriminating photo on his Twitter? Did his company give out a press release that, while COULD be true, rather infuriated the Korean public/netizens more because 'visiting the sick'? Really?!

Did he ever deny his adoration for IU and mislead his fans in any way into thinking otherwise? The fact that the only ones really shocked about them dating was IU's fans while Korean ELF were just 'oh crap, why did it have to be revealed this way >.<' says a lot.

Yes it's questionable that he acknowledges the scandal in such a way, but if your private affairs are revealed to the public in that manner without your control nor consent, wouldn't you be mad too? He's never insulted IU and has always been supportive of her in the past, even before she became 'nation's little sister' and was this little girl with a guitar singing acoustic versions of popular hits. I can't help but raise my eyebrows at people saying that IU did nothing wrong and is undeserving of hate, yet they dish it out at Eunhyuk when he's also trying to move on from the scandal as well.
stephantasm 16th-Jan-2013 04:21 am (UTC)
...People think that it's tacky to joke about something that the other party is still feeling the impact of. She got the brunt of the hate from ELF and her own creepy fans and some other ppl in the general public. Just like almost every other hetero sex scandal, the girl gets the brunt of the vitriol while ppl love to joke about the dude having sex. Bill Clinton can joke about his scandal while we haven't seen Monica in years and the way her name was dragged, I'm sure she can't joke about something that basically ruined her life. I'm not saying this ruined IU's life but her "pure" image was tarnished while no one expects "purity" from even 15 year old dude, none the less a damn-near 30 year old.
realme21 16th-Jan-2013 04:21 am (UTC)
Did he even mention it though? People always ASSUME THINGS.
We all do. It's a bad habit.

This tacky bitch.
jasmineakaiumi 16th-Jan-2013 04:22 am (UTC)
My close friend's producer boyfriend said she uploaded it to get revenge since he cheated on her with Suzy haha idk
chikage_chan 16th-Jan-2013 04:40 am (UTC)
Now that's some good gossip! Why can't we get more of these for the Omona blind items posts? lol XD

But if there's any truth to it, cheating on your gf with her best friend is such a messed up thing to do, imo...
deeinanutshell 16th-Jan-2013 04:22 am (UTC)
Finally netizen see the light.
I swear Hyuk's entire existence is defined by "desperate".
bolingi_aii 16th-Jan-2013 04:25 am (UTC)
and now Trash :)
bolingi_aii 16th-Jan-2013 04:28 am (UTC)
I don't see how people are trying to act as if I.U and Eunhyuk received the same level of criticism and treatment for this scandal. The fact that he's even allowed to makes jokes and allude to the scandal in a flippant manner when I.U has pretty gone into hiding shows how much more she was affected. Lets not try and pretend that him being a male and her being a female is the number reason for the unequal treatment. How cute that his ranking went up because of this and I.U's image was damaged. If youre not bearing full or equal responsibility not make slick comments.
flumes 16th-Jan-2013 04:32 am (UTC)
lol sexism doesnt exist or something
flumes 16th-Jan-2013 04:32 am (UTC)

unicornios 16th-Jan-2013 04:44 am (UTC)
Oh Hyuk, just shut the fuck up bro.
b1gay4 16th-Jan-2013 05:09 am (UTC)
and 99% of the rest of suju
dreaminginside 16th-Jan-2013 04:59 am (UTC)
I think everyone needs a few calming breaths here

Also there should be some drinking game for every time a netizen uses 'trash'
boba_holic 16th-Jan-2013 05:02 am (UTC)
Eh, it's kind of hard to make a judgement without seeing the video, but nonetheless he should refrain from any IU jokes considering how much crap she's gotten :/ I feel so bad for the girl.
sergel02 16th-Jan-2013 05:03 am (UTC)
At first I was confused about the hate from those netizens, and then I kept reading and remembered IU. While i think the whole thing is stupid and silly, it was in poor taste imo to talk about the scandal. Both got flack for it, but I think IU certainly got more, or at least her's is more damning. Joking can diminish the magnitude of something, but in this case the one most affected should have made the joke (i.e. IU), and it's too soon for her probably. If you want something to go away, probably best to not talk about it (tho being honest would have been appreciated probably).

Won't call him trash or other names though. Doesn't really solve much now does it? Person has to be pretty low for me to call them that, but that's me.

boba_holic 16th-Jan-2013 05:08 am (UTC)
Mhmm, ia with this comment. I feel like more of the anger should be directed at society as a whole for making IU go through so much shit, rather than Eunhyuk's tacky little joke.
b1gay4 16th-Jan-2013 05:08 am (UTC)
why is anyone surprised when evr1 knows suju is a bunch of assholes -2 of them
izabera 16th-Jan-2013 12:12 pm (UTC)
meh, it's Shindong, Leeteuk and Eunhyuk who are the real assholes
Yesung and Siwon are borderline cases

the others are OK, even Kangin can be considered redeemed after going to the army
af_fx_tion 16th-Jan-2013 05:15 am (UTC)
~*~*~yay for male privilege~*~*~ where Eunhyuk can joke about the photo while IU has been practically MIA ever since the scandal broke out.

stay classy, eunhyuk.
bolingi_aii 16th-Jan-2013 05:18 am (UTC)
exactly! like how are these fans ignoring this every telling reaction.

I see a lot of comments about how Eunhyuk gets to go on with his life scot-free while IU is still hiding from the public. She's still on TV like Inkigayo every week like nothing happened. What would happen if IU took Eunhyuk's approach and also made a joke out of it? Of course there is male previlege still, but Loen didn't even try defying the norm by admitting the incident and tried to sweep up the issue under the carpet. It's 2013 - maybe she'll still be slut-shamed, and that we can frown on, but she certainly won't be another Baek Ji Young.
itsprincess 16th-Jan-2013 05:33 am (UTC)
it depends on the way he said it tbh. he could have meant it just bluntly as in its been 4 years so his search rank has gone up.
but omg everyone was so fucking disappointed when this scandal died quickly and now eunhyuk may or may not have made a referenced to it and everyone's like omg eunhyuk stop talking about it.
asnindie 16th-Jan-2013 05:37 am (UTC)
I wonder if they're dating, if my GF was going through such a rotten time, the last thing I'd do is laugh about her misfortune on tv.
mad_nux 16th-Jan-2013 05:37 am (UTC)
/facepalm hyuk,bad bad joke. also smh at [male] mcs that were bringing up the scandal from other episodes

men and their doesn't matter had sex attitude...
strawberr1es 16th-Jan-2013 05:45 am (UTC)
Okay so at first I was like "how did they even know he meant that..." but the more that I think about it, let's be real, he hasn't done anything of note recently by himself so okay.

It actually really pisses me off now because all these girls are running to his side like "oh its just a joke" and I even saw someone mention something like "at least he came back to work".

ARE YOU KIDDING ME? Obviously he could come back to work immediately he works for the fucking sm machine and being a male and who he is, he got a little hate for it, whatever, nothing big even happened to him that could be anywhere near comparable to the backlash IU received. If I remember correctly, he went to a variety recording like the next day or something. Meanwhile people were uploading photos of IU's records literally cut with scissors and she hasn't even tweeted anything since this happend.

On purpose (the tweet/picture) or not or WHATEVER he is seriously a giant douchebag for sitting there and making jokes about it and it's just really in poor taste.
t_koilanri 16th-Jan-2013 05:48 am (UTC)
Tbh people who don't live in Korea/speak Korean and still act like they know e v e r y t h i n g should stop saying dumb stuff. Because, firstly, Korea was never like 'IU is done'. She got shit for it, he did as well. And then Korea just stopped caring because half of Korea already knew they had dated since Korean fans are very aware of their idol's private lives details. They just don't share them with anyone else.
Secondly, I am pretty sure he did mean the IU thing when he talked about his search rankings but lol, did you also know that every single thing on Korean variety shows is scripted? Like when Kang Ho Dong and Boom made fun of Eunhyuk on Star King on the next day after the scandal and all ELF went hysterical about it. Go blame the writers for bringing it up because I really doubt he would do it himself.
And thirdly, I don't understand how people can say that the whole thing is Eunhyuk's fault. What did he do exactly. Slept with SK's little sister? I bet he's not the only one. Was (half)naked in the picture? Not that she looks like she is against it. She screwed up (or maybe it was done on purpose indeed) and she had to apologize. This is how things are supposed to work.
bolingi_aii 16th-Jan-2013 06:01 am (UTC)
I think you're missing the point. Also thats a comment my Korean friend made to me when he was telling me about the scandal. I doubt you read every comment so how would you really know?

no one is blaming him or saying its his fault idk even know where some of you are getting that from. There is so much projecting from you eunhyuk defenders damn.Also no one cares about them dating. Its moreso the fact that he has the privilege to make flippant comments and she doesnt. Its rooted in sexism and the obsession with infantilizing female idols, especially those that are a bit younger. And I'm sure SM has enough sway to halt certain content from being discussed. Also the argument about IU releasing this on purpose is so beyond ridiculous. The blame game is getting cuter and cuter everyday.
