Eunhyuk gets flak for his latest joke on Strong Heart

eunhyuk
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?

4. [+85, -44] I'm a girl and his comment really turned me off. Does he not know how much pain IU is going through right now because of what happened? And he thinks to use it as laughing matter on a variety show? I feel sad for IU

5. [+82, -16] What a fu*king idiot, why is every member in Super Junior nothing but trash?

6. [+81, -22] IU did make a mistake but it's not right for Eunhyuk to come out on TV and laugh and joke about it like this

7. [+64, -9] When's he going to the army?

8. [+60, -7] So trashy... You really had nothing else to say other than that? You should've just kept your mouth shut, instead you turned yourself into trash... Wow, seriously..

9. [+60, -7] Utter trash

10. [+48, -3] He really doesn't get the situation, does he? He's nothing but a speck in IU's life because he could never amount to what IU had career wise before what happened. He talks as if IU was the one hanging on to him. It's pathetic that IU was even once with trash like him. At least IU has talent, Eunhyuk is old and can't even sing to save his life. Trash without a speck of respect for women.

Here is a translation of the original article from AKP. Thank you asnindie!

Eunhyuk had viewers as well as the other stars on set laughing as he subtly brought up his previous photo incident in a light-hearted way.

On ‘Strong Heart‘ that was aired on the 15th, baseball playe Lee Yong Kyu discussed the attention he received during the 2009 World Baseball Classic in the Korea-Japan match. Lee Yong Kyu was hit on the head by the ball thrown at him by the opposing team’s pitcher and the news made headlines left and right.

Eunhyuk commented, “From March 5th, 2009 to the 24th during the WBC, Lee Yong Kyu was searched more than 1,950,000 times on portal sites. It’s exponentially more than Lee Min Ho‘s, whose drama ‘Boys Over Flowers‘ was ranked #1 in terms of ratings during the time.

He then added, “My search ranking used to be 235th place… But now, it’s probably gone up a lot,” hinting at his photo incident in a subtle manner. The studio was brought to laughter as Eunhyuk good-naturedly joked about it, and MC Shin Dong Yup could not help but tease as he feigned innocence as he asked him to explain, commenting, ”Just why did it go up?” causing everyone to chuckle again.

She had to apologize though because she posted the photo. The same way if he had posted the photo, he would apologize. And obviously there is some negativity towards him to, as seen in the above comments. And there really has been no damage to her career, isn't she coming back? I don't know anything about IU but I think career wise she is fine.

The point of the scandal wasn't that she posted a picture, but the content. The fact that although she was fully clothed in bed with a half naked man caused the conflict. She received all the criticsm, the basic narrative in korea during the conflict was " IU is done". I remember my korean friend sending me the photo basically saying that her image was ruined bc most people were assuming that they had/are having sex. There was none of the same criticism given to eunhyuk even though he was the one half naked in the photo. The fact that IU had to apologize for causing him trouble when he choose to be half naked and consented the photo as well shows the unequal treatment. No matter if she comes back, this is a stain on her reputation, despite how her career is gonna be managed from now on, people will always remember this scandal it did damage to her image, and image is #1 to 1dols

I hope you continue to spread your wisdom across this post. Idec if this particular incident wasn't alluding to the photo scandal. Point is they've joked about this before and netizens still bashed IU and I think it's time he got a taste of what IU's had to go through.

The Oh Yeon Seo/Jang Woo mess has pretty much brought about the same kind of response. "Why is she still on tv/How dare she show her face on tv?" "Isn't she embarrassed?" Why is Jang Woo still on tv then? I'm not saying either one of them were at fault but I can't stand the double standards.

exactly, given that sexism is a primary ingredient in all this I'm shocked that being are acting as if the narratives attached to both their criticism are the same. It not that what he did was malicious, its that it was tacky and disrespectful to I.U.

no... Koreans bash lee jangwoo soooooo much more than oh yeon seo if u read the replies by Korean netizens...

I think he had his shirt off bc when her statement was released bc people
were like why does he need to nurse her to health with his shirt off, but I could be wrong. I have to go look at the photo my friend sent me again
xoshio 16th-Jan-2013 01:17 pm (UTC)
Maybe the people said that because it really does look like he isn't wearing a shirt?
The picture and the text "Eunhyuk is NOT naked but actually wearing a shirt, as can be seen from the photo above with the skin colours adjusted to green." makes it look like he actually was wearing a shirt but idk

Not that prove you wrong or anything like that. I totally agree with what you said
ceecile 16th-Jan-2013 02:11 pm (UTC)
Lmao no. That's Suju fans trying to say he's wearing some kind of nude shirt. They put it under photoshop filters or whatever to see the layers. I don't know how that shit works but it's just a shadow.
xoshio 16th-Jan-2013 05:10 pm (UTC)
of course they did.... I should have known lol
ceecile 16th-Jan-2013 05:23 pm (UTC)
Lol it's so obvious in the actual picture it's ridiculous.
xoshio 16th-Jan-2013 05:29 pm (UTC)
Knowing it's fake, I can totally see that the shirt-line-whatever doesn't go all the way
ceecile 16th-Jan-2013 05:36 pm (UTC)
There's just no way that's a shirt lol Why are they even trying to deny it


xoshio 16th-Jan-2013 05:57 pm (UTC)
Why would HIS fans try to deny anything lol
bolingi_aii 16th-Jan-2013 07:04 pm (UTC)
