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.

that deeply rootded sexism isn't Hyuk's fault. he didn't invent it.

however, he definitely benefited from it since he's so free to even make comments and joke about it on variety shows.

so blame him for not having being forced a "pure and innocent" image? blame him for being born male and living in a country, working in an industry which is sexist? things that aren't in his control how can one blame?

he hasn't really made comments, it has been the mcs around him on variety shows addressing it in a light hearted way. not him. i seriously doubt he would have the kind of pull to go to the writers of these shows to say "oh please lets not go there." if Hyuk was the arrogant bastard everyone thinks he is, he would have said "yeah i did her." and trust me hyuk annoys me, and his "on screen" persona is a little too much...but this scandal...

this scandal the energy of hate exhibited are being put in the wrong place, if these netizens dislike the appropriations of entitlement in that society...that is what they should be fighting. but it is easier to hate on someone one doesn't like over the rooted issue that is staring them in the face.

yeah, society is the big bad here blah blah blah, but this is specifically talking about eunhyuk and how he's dealt with this since the dust has settled. if eunhyuk is being blamed for anything it's his lack of tact and the fact that as a male he can get away with making these sorts of 'jokes' (even if he's not directly saying it or is smiling and going along with the mcs) while iu has to protect that "pure and innocent" image by laying low with the media. how's that any fair to her when his reputation can still be intact and he can appear in public and is able to even be involved with such jokes about their whack scandal?

the extent at which you are bending backwards to absolve this dude any fault for this current situation is enough to make the fab 5 hand their olympic medal collections to you.

but i guess it must be nice as a celebrity to have a bunch of people you'll never meet defend your shitty actions no matter what.
