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.

Thank you! I will add it to the post.

The article and the MCs are both pushing it to make it seem it is about IU when it probably could not have been. And even if it was, he said nothing malicious at all.

so it's AKP who gave their own 'hint' to the joke?

The other way I've understand the joke it's probably because Eunhyuk wasn't as popular as now compared to the 2009. But idk suju so my opinion is nothing hmm

yeah that's what it looks like to me...
asnindie Re: Article in question16th-Jan-2013 04:10 am (UTC)
Wait no. He said his rankings must have gone up recently, AKP didn't say that...
burger Re: Article in question16th-Jan-2013 04:11 am (UTC)
Yeah I know he said that but AKP are the ones who said he was subtly giving a nod to that scandal, he didn't say it explicitly, that's all!

asnindie Re: Article in question16th-Jan-2013 04:15 am (UTC)
But why else would his rankings go up. Don't get me wrong, I'm not bashing him, imo the problems isn't him, it's the shows in general. but he did joke about it, what else is talking about.
burger Re: Article in question16th-Jan-2013 04:18 am (UTC)
oh no I mean I have no idea, I was just saying that he didn't come straight out and say it lol, I thought initially he had. I agree the shows need to seriously cut down on this sort of stuff, though. I know a lot of it is scripted but they do throw some stuff at idols (definitely not just Hyuk ofc) and you can tell they feel really awkward and had no idea it was going to be brought up. adding that to my list of reasons why I'd rather die than be one
luvey Re: Article in question16th-Jan-2013 04:16 am (UTC)
the article 1. is akp which we know loves to stir up stuff and 2. it is the writer of the article who is making the insinuation that he "subtly" brought up the IU thing.

asnindie Re: Article in question16th-Jan-2013 04:19 am (UTC)
Yeah but what else is he alluding to, I mean c'mon we don't exactly need Sherlock on the job here now.
luvey Re: Article in question16th-Jan-2013 04:26 am (UTC)
you want to be sherlock cause it is the easiest thing to allude to in most minds. question, haven't you ever said something, that was rather innocent but depending on who you were around was taken another way? my point is, this could go either way. many including AKP, who love a good scandal, and many Omonaites want to take it and make a bigger deal cause it allows them to express their hate. hate is an easy emotion to express.
bolingi_aii Re: Article in question16th-Jan-2013 04:38 am (UTC)
I hate eunhyuk and I don't need a scandal to express that. What he did here was simply tacky and disrespectful given the fact that I.U is bearing most of the negative criticism and commentary. Suju is not that popular and neither is eunhyuk popular enough individually without having done a single thing interesting in the past months or weeks BESIDES the scandal with I.U to have a rise in searches. Search in naver right now and guaranteed his name will be attached to I.U's and scandal. Thats what he's alluding to and you don't need rocket science to figure it out, he was making a sly comment and it was unnecessary.
luvey Re: Article in question16th-Jan-2013 05:02 am (UTC)
since the scandal he has had his first solo photo shoot and was involved in a lot of the year end shows. so sorry but there are reasons why his search may have gone up without the IU scandal.

either way, the hate IU is getting isn't about him, it's about Korean's Entertainment Industry's sexism. he hasn't said boo about IU since this happened, only those surrounding him have.
bolingi_aii Re: Article in question16th-Jan-2013 05:08 am (UTC)
lol that would imply that suju and eunhyuk are popular enoiugh to drum up note worthy attention for something they do every few months. If this were the case he would comments like this more often. Eunhyuk isnt that popular and neither is suju. They dont garner that much attention outside their fanbase and or in kpop circles.

No one said it is, the neitzens are specifically saying that the fact that I.U is gonna receive more hate than him ( SEXISM) he is getting off with barely a slap and the wrist and because of that privilege he shouldnt be making flippant remarks. Its tacky and unnecessary. Simple as that.
