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.

I don't know for sure because I haven't been paying attention but I think the comments from the netizens make it pretty clear that IU has gotten a lot of hate for the picture in Korea while Eunhyuk hasn't. IA with the last part of your comment though and that IU is definitely not done.

i wouldn't go by just what the netizen's say since we know the majority make a mountain out of a pinprick. by the look of those comments, i sense Hyuk has gotten a lot of hate. she went into hiding while he had to appear on the shows he was contracted for, and in doing so the MC's and other guests were the ones who picked on him. he hasn't said one word about it.

many of the fans who are "hating" IU is because she damaged her "goody two shoes" image as Korea's little sister.

personally i say, get it gurl.

IA but I don't think you can compare the hate the two have gotten. The slut shaming and double standards have definitely made things harder on IU since this whole thing started.

you can't compare the two (although come on, looking just at omona when you look into the tag Hyuk, the hate is deeply rooted). but Hyuk didn't make the Korean entertainment industry sexist. and he hasn't said boo about the incident, it is others around him who usually have brought it out. besides she went into hiding right after, that was her and her companies choice. her company has handled a lot of this wrong.

IU hasn't gone into "hiding" persay, either. She's still mcing Inkigayo and Quiz show and going out and doing events. She's probably more active than Eunhyuk, even.

Furthermore, nobody's really "insulting" Eunhyuk like they are IU. Sure you get a couple radical ahjusshi's angry that he defiled their angel but if anything the brunt of the mainstream criticisms are centered around IU, who is much more relevant. She would never be able to get away with mentioning, let alone joke about the scandal. Also, it's not the first time he's made a joke about the scandal without outright mentioning it, which is in poor taste when you consider how hard her company is trying to move on with her new comeback. He pretended to be burdened to win in a problems-battle with Kwanghee on that one variety show, too.
