Vixx's Leo Chastises Fans for Bad Behavior

Leo posted on Twitter after an incident at the broadcast station for Music Bank yesterday.

I was conflicted over this but I figured that I can’t just let it pass, so I’m leaving a message here. Although it’s not easy, thank you to our fans who came to cheer us on on such a cold day! However the mood was spoiled today so I’m writing this. Entering the waiting room at the broadcast station is a violation of rules, and VIXX does not want our fans to be disadvantaged. Secretly coming into our waiting room, taking pictures, and hiding when our faces meet, is that the true appearance of a fan? Because of your personal greed, the broadcast station is angry and we don’t even know if it’ll be disadvantageous to our fans in the next week! Our company officials have already given warnings several times, and we also have had these incidents happen several times. Although everyone has their different methods to cheer whomever on, isn’t it bad that because of a few people that we have to avoid everyone? Everyone came a long way with the same thoughts in mind to cheer us on, but why do they have to become disadvantaged because of a few people who couldn’t follow the rules? If the people who secretly came into our waiting room are reading this, please don’t do that again! I don’t like it.

카페에 이 글을 쓰지 않는 이유는 그 공간에서는 팬여러분과 좋은 이야기들과 두고두고 나누고 싶은 마음만 나누고 싶습니다.몇명때문에 더 많은 팬분들이 얼굴 찌푸리는건 싫으니까요.이해해주셨으면 합니다.

The reason why I didn’t write this in the fancafe is because that is a place where I want to share happy stories for a long time. I don’t like seeing our fans frown because of a few people. I hope you understand.

퇴근길에도 몇명때문에 사고날뻔했죠.. 그래서 카미팅도 하려다 못하구ㅠ RT @Nneul__96:@CHA_NNNNN 누군지도…왜그랫는지도 모르겟지만….그냥…같은 팬으로 미안해요ㅠㅠ 오늘 퇴근때도…사람많고….위험하기도하고..그랫는데…

On our way out there was also almost an accident because of a few people.. So we couldn’t do a car meetingㅠ RT @Nneul__96: @CHA_NNNNN Who would… I don’t know why any would do that but….just…I’m sorry as a fanㅠㅠ There were a lot of people…on your way out too…it was also…really dangerous..

지친하루였지만;; 그래도 오늘도 빅스무대를 보러 와주시고 본방사수해주시고 라됴도 들어주시고 힘나는 응원 감사합니닭!!!@.@!!!!! 한발짝 한발짝씩 나아가는 모습으로 보답할게용~~^^ 모두 엔나잇!!! エンナイト‼(^-^)/

Although it was a tiring day;; Even so thank you to everyone to everyone who came to watch VIXX’s performance, watched the live broadcast, and even listened to our radio appearance!!!@.@!!!!! I’ll repay you step by step~~^^ Everyone N night!!! N night‼(^-^)/

I'm glad he said something about it. That kind of behavior is not okay. Idols need to start standing up and telling their fans that crossing the line isn't okay, and that they won't put up with it. How the hell did fans even get into their waiting room though, isn't there supposed to be security or something? wtf.

Leo is awesome, that's all I have to say.
kelseyum 9th-Feb-2013 04:28 am (UTC)
lmao amazing leo. i'm really proud of him for this, not just for the fact he stood up for the band, but for the way he wrote this. he didn't come across as rude and unappreciative, and made it seem like he was just looking out for the other fans (which im sure is still true, but he was probably only writing this because he was pissed)

some fans are just psycho. like why do you think it's okay to sneak into your oppas dressing room? or house? or wherever? that doesn't make them like you lol

wow im surprised LEO wrote this, like N or ravi maybe but my bb is so quiet it kinda surprised me. its a good surprise though, because im glad he spoke up in order to protect the other fans that are not doing this shit and to tell the ones that are to stop. this is dumb and if they've been told not to do it they need to learn how to stop.
b1gay4 9th-Feb-2013 08:26 pm (UTC)
hes rlly quiett in front of cameras but on vixx tv when he wasnt aware they were rolling he talked some :-)
aleexnews 9th-Feb-2013 09:04 pm (UTC)
what episode cause i watched them all and unless they tried to force him he barely spoke lol
b1gay4 9th-Feb-2013 09:19 pm (UTC)
oops sorry i looked at the videos again it's not vixx tv but vixx diary! ((the first one omf i???))

aleexnews 9th-Feb-2013 10:23 pm (UTC)
oh yeah i haven't gotten to watch this yet, i only saw some cuts of it so far. sobs i fckn love this flawless human
kanbinayume 9th-Feb-2013 04:35 am (UTC)
Leo may have a hard time talking in front of people, but he's really eloquent and I'm glad that he addressed this behavior. Fans need to understand that there are boundaries that they cannot pass, and if they're not going to listen to the management or security, they should at least have enough respect to listen to their idols
swhyeon1991 9th-Feb-2013 09:03 am (UTC)
IA, he's really eloquent it surprises me.
b1gay4 9th-Feb-2013 08:27 pm (UTC)
ia his voice when he talks is reeeeeally soft spoken so maybe thats why?
kanbinayume 10th-Feb-2013 04:31 am (UTC)
he's super shy and I think he just doesn't feel comfortable. he really is soft spoken. I wish he'd talk more tbh, I love his comebacks
scarletapples 9th-Feb-2013 04:35 am (UTC)
I really don't understand why some fans would do this kind of thing; "Oppa will surely love me if I sneak into their dressing room!!!" (or any other place really) Ugh, just no. I don't think you're a fan at that point...That's almost like sasaeng level right there.

Good on Leo for saying this. I'm really glad he brought it up and how he said it!
lysblack 9th-Feb-2013 04:42 am (UTC)
good for him and his group, really, more groups should do this and cut the bullshitery from the get go.
chikage_chan 9th-Feb-2013 05:01 am (UTC)
I don't care much about VIXX, but I really like this guy now.
crypticbluerose 9th-Feb-2013 05:17 am (UTC)
Taekwoon is so considerate. I really respect him for making this post as an attempt to regulate fans actions, you don’t see that a lot from idols they usually just leave it up to the management. I think it makes more of an impact to fans if it comes straight from the artist.
supplanter 9th-Feb-2013 08:02 am (UTC)
In his message he does say their company already issued warnings and were ignored, so I guess he felt he should take it into his own hands since leaving it to management already wasn't working. I hope they back off and this goes well for them.

missnothings 9th-Feb-2013 08:05 am (UTC)
tbh I had the same thoughts about Leo. But after I watched more videos I realized just how shy he is, and how he doesn't know how to express himself well, so he just stays quiet. And then I think his personality in contrast with his crazy hyper over the top members just made him look even more sullen, lol. But I appreciate Leo for who he is, the soft spoken, gentle, kind hearted guy he is. I've read some really sweet fan reports of him at fansignings, so I couldn't dislike him any more after reading those.
swhyeon1991 9th-Feb-2013 09:11 am (UTC)
Mte lol he was even barely in VIXX TV.. And aside from stage performances he looked like just nhft or didn't like the spotlight he received even on some fanmeeting/fansign iirc. I was like well if you don't like it why are you being an idol even?? Lol it annoyed me so much but not to the point he ruined everything tho.
gray_fairy 9th-Feb-2013 11:53 am (UTC)
I used to hate him in vixx diary too because I found him extremely cold and I hated how he seemed annoyed most of the time but after knowing him more I realize that he's actually sweet.
b1gay4 9th-Feb-2013 08:32 pm (UTC)
same. when vixx came out with rock ur body tho, i went from anti to rlly curious, then on tlist this girl was a really big fan of him and i was only an N fan, so i started watching leo vids and the i got to vids of him actuallly talking and??? wow
22by7 9th-Feb-2013 05:51 am (UTC)
more idols should feel comfortable saying stuff like this, and i like that the message is extremely direct but also not condescending. well-played, leo.
keithfan_sra 9th-Feb-2013 05:55 am (UTC)
Good for him speaking out like this. *nodding* I hope this helps the problem tho, and doesn't make it worse. Hopefully the fans causing problems get the message and back off.
song_jihyuk 9th-Feb-2013 06:40 am (UTC)
u go leo !
hellicoptajuuce 9th-Feb-2013 06:50 am (UTC)
why are the broadcasters giving them shit though, they should be giving it to the creepers tbh and GO LEO! bb is quiet but when he speaks he says some important shit.

They should load their bags up with weights or superglue dem handles so the creepers can't get dat shit.
supplanter 9th-Feb-2013 07:57 am (UTC)
I don't think it said that, I think he said "they were angry and may not permit Vixx fans to come in next time" (because probably they don't know which ones were responsible anyway?)
missnothings 9th-Feb-2013 08:08 am (UTC)
Yeah I think it was more the fans would be punished for the actions of a select few, and I think that probably means their fans wouldn't be allowed into the station for music shows, etc., which would affect Vixx too as they wouldn't get the support from their fans, but I don't think they themselves got in trouble, because they didn't do anything wrong. It's the broadcast station's fault for having lax security so much to the point where fans can sneak in to the waiting room area.
taecmyheart 9th-Feb-2013 07:06 am (UTC)
oh good i was scared that my translation might not get the tone across, but seeing these comments, i think they did. phew.

i'm glad that more people are starting to see that he's not just some one-dimensional "cold" guy. he's so sincere in everything he does, and he's really trying his best to open up to fans, with the other members embarrassing helping out once in a while. ^^
supplanter 9th-Feb-2013 08:00 am (UTC)
I think it's a pretty good, direct translation! I have a good impression of his maturity and consideration. One thing though, I think instead of "personal greed" you might just want to use "selfishness"....
reelrecnizereel 9th-Feb-2013 07:26 am (UTC)
Yes Leo you are a gem people new to vixx should know that your significance is not to be determined by your lack of words while on cam!! Do not sleep on this guy!
21banged 9th-Feb-2013 08:16 am (UTC)
He's so shy when the cameras are on it's so qt <3
the_erotomanic 9th-Feb-2013 07:57 am (UTC)
leo bb so flawless.
21banged 9th-Feb-2013 08:14 am (UTC)
ugh Leo is flawless, he's riding up my bias list too damn fast.

But ty for calling them out bby, more idols need to start doing this before stans become batshit crazy sasaengs :\
turtles_tszx 9th-Feb-2013 10:10 am (UTC)
Good for you, i can't help liking them more and more if they continue being like this. It's better to address their fans before they got big and out of hand.
gray_fairy 9th-Feb-2013 11:54 am (UTC)
Some fans are so obnoxious.
purring_feline 9th-Feb-2013 12:39 pm (UTC)
It's always nice to see idols calling out fans' improper behavior, to have a rookie do it is x10 better.
Also, music shows have the right to ban fandoms from entering and the stigma that follows is gonna linger. I think that's what he means by "disadvantageous".
fabledlamb 9th-Feb-2013 04:29 pm (UTC)
Exactly, nobody wants to be the group known for their creepy stalker fans.

And I think it's really important for groups to have their fans around when they're recording their music show performances. VIXX are starting to get really loud fanchants now and that must be both encouraging for the group and a sign of their popularity for the viewers. It would be awfully quiet now if their fans weren't aloud into the studio anymore :(
asnindie 9th-Feb-2013 03:56 pm (UTC)
Tell it how it is Leo. Fans are so delusional.
purekpopology 9th-Feb-2013 06:42 pm (UTC)
I really like the way he wrote this, and of course I'm glad he wrote it at all.
ruddens 9th-Feb-2013 07:41 pm (UTC)
he is so wonderful. i love it when idols do this.
his is very eloquent and polite; it's the perfect amount of "i love you guys so much but please stop misbehaving", he's really a sweetheart!

thank u bb
edanz_castle 9th-Feb-2013 11:49 pm (UTC)
Claps for Leo. I'm glad he spoke out...for VIXX and his fans sake!
xzombiexzombiex 10th-Feb-2013 12:18 am (UTC)
Good for him! It's nice seeing idols speak out to their fans like this.
weerainbow 10th-Feb-2013 12:50 am (UTC)
Artists who are willing to call out their fans on things they are doing wrong always demand extra respect from me. I'm glad to see this kind of thing. I know not everyone listens but at least he's trying to make it clear how much he dislikes and disapproves of the actions and perhaps it will make those fans think twice in future.
falling_empress 10th-Feb-2013 12:52 am (UTC)
too bad those kind of fans don't give a fuck...
engraved_16 10th-Feb-2013 01:45 pm (UTC)
omg leo you precious and flawless thing ;~;

im proud that he's able to stand up and saying something about it, which half surprises me and half doesnt because usually he's very quiet and keeps to himself but at the same time you can really see that he's very serious about his career/job and im glad he's looking out for everyone.

The way he worded this too, was done really well :)
candycrush808 10th-Jul-2013 08:21 am (UTC)
I'm glad Leo spoke up. I don't want VIXX to walk on eggshells around their fans like some groups do. I also hope speaking out early on will keep the immature or obsessive Starlights in check.
