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?

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.

What do you guys think?

If anything it is the MCs insinuating that it can be because of IU, not Eunhyuk. He said the last time he checked was /2009/ so obviously now in 2013 he is saying it could have gone up. That is all he said but the MCs are twisting things.

hyuk could mean about anything else but IU, tbh. it's the MC who directed it towards the thinking of IU had to cause this.
luvey 16th-Jan-2013 03:58 am (UTC)
it has always been the MCs who bring up the IU thing. he always kept quiet.
shoopergirlzoey 16th-Jan-2013 04:02 am (UTC)
mte but since he is Eunhyuk and more importantly a member of SuJu bashing has to be done
anconeous 16th-Jan-2013 04:17 am (UTC)
THIS. It's always been the MC's implying or throwing some subtle jokes here and there and he barely even responds.
yunhalove 16th-Jan-2013 03:08 pm (UTC)
He brought it up that one time on that variety show battle with Kwanghee.
carmine_pink 16th-Jan-2013 04:01 am (UTC)
This. Idk for sure cause I haven't watched the episode, but Shin Dong Yup did this a few times when Eunhyuk didn't even say a word.
khaus414 16th-Jan-2013 04:04 am (UTC)
this too. the MC's were the one that even asked for an explanation, but i think in general, both sides, not just Eunhyuk's should have addressed this more publicly? Everyone involved needs to be able to move past it and get on with their careers. She's not done here and neither is he so. :\

Eunhyuk was laughing about it with a sly smile when he said it and everyone started laughing along WITH HIM and then the MCs asked "exactly why did it go up?". he knew he was subtly bringing up the IU incident and thats why he laughed, theres obvs nothing else that has happened to him to make him go up on search ranks other than that IU scandal.

and he didnt say it in a serious way just stating that it could have gone up, its obvious what he was getting at u dont need to be a genius to get that but u do need common sense which a lot of ELFs lack so lol im not surprised ur all oppa didnt mean it in here
asnindie 16th-Jan-2013 04:09 am (UTC)
I'm surprised people are saying the MC's brought it up, when he mentioned the rankings and him going up on them recently.
shoopergirlzoey 16th-Jan-2013 04:09 am (UTC)
I'm 100% not an oppa didn't mean it person, let's get that out of the way. Yes I'm an ELF but that shouldn't even matter because I have sideeyed SuJu for things, ok?

Only reason why I disagree with the netizens here is because he has stayed quiet about this whole situation ever since it happened, it is always the MCs or whatever prompting it out of him if it was mentioned. The one time he decides to speak up he has to get bashed for it? And just based of this, I can see he is getting it bad to just as IU did.

And how can there be nothing to make his ranking go up? Since 2009 he has done A LOT, done so many shows, won awards, etc. There have been many factors that have resulted for his ranking to go up, not just this scandal.
aleexnews 16th-Jan-2013 04:24 am (UTC)
no he has not stayed quiet, he also subtly brought it up on Come To Play last month when he said something like "lately its been hard" or w/e, clearly insinuating the IU scandal yet again.

and lol no, the guy never gets it as bad as the girl u need to understand that right now. thats pure bullshit, she definitely has had it harder. girls always do, and especially because this is Korea we are talking about. And this one netizen said it the best:

The double standards are hilarious. IU or anyone around her has never once mentioned the scandal since it happened, but Eunhyuk and his show hosts are joking about it on TV. This is the reality of our country. A male and female will get into a scandal with very different results. Everyone around the male will ask how it was or if he liked it and laugh it off, but for the female, she has to endure awkward silences, gossips, rumors, people talking behind her back and calling her a slut. Such a bitter reality, isn't it? They both had consenting sex and they both enjoyed it, so why treat them differently?

has he released a solo? won an award for his solo? had a lead role in a drama? girl none of those things are what he was talking about, its obvious your ranking has to go up or down in 4 years but he has done nothing out of the ordinary that you can say had netizens talking for a while like the IU scandal did, that stupid smile on his face says it all if u dont wanna sound like an oppa they didnt mean it fan then open ur eyes
bolingi_aii 16th-Jan-2013 04:14 am (UTC)
hahaha I cant when some people trying to say " he could be talking about something else" ....like since when was he popular or had done anything interesting in the last few years besides be a member of suju? The scandal is the ding ding ding obvious answer, people are trying to hard to act obtuse.
aleexnews 16th-Jan-2013 04:29 am (UTC)
seriously wtf has he done out of the ordinary promotions SUJU does? absolutely nothing. clearly when a kpop fan thinks of Eunhyuk they think IU dating scandal right away, it was the only thing that has made him relevant recently. but some fucking ELFs are being ridiculous right now with their excuses
bolingi_aii 16th-Jan-2013 04:34 am (UTC)
exactly, if anyone tried to punch in his name in Naver right now it'd be attached to"I.U". Suju has been doing nothing special and is no longer popular so people really need to stop because it's embarrassing to assume suju or eunhyuk individually is all of a sudden mysteriously popular when there hasnt been a single thing written about them besides the same ole tired ass comeback articles and photobooks and just admit what he said was tacky and disrespectful given how I.U is and will continue to be treated.
djlancerock 16th-Jan-2013 05:54 am (UTC)
let's face it 2009 was suju's most interesting year anyway so lol
imyoona 16th-Jan-2013 08:21 am (UTC)
they are oppa didn't meaning it so hard rn.
