EXO's Baekhyun Makes a Joke About Autistic Kids?

A lot of drama happened in the Hallyu8 forums yesterday, when Hallyu8 user ♡Meli made a post supposedly revealing that EXO-K's Baekhyun made a joke about autistic children.

The video apparently shows Baekhyun saying the phrase "Like an autistic kid" at 2:23.

EXO fans on twitter came out in droves, claiming to know fluent Korean and saying that Baekhyun said no such thing. However, another video was uploaded afterwards, which was titled the "censored version" and this didn't include Baekhyun's supposed offensive phrase. Does this mean he did say something offensive? There could be another reason why it was cut out, but it does seem suspicious.

To quote the person who made the translations originally [aka user Shithead]:

"For anyone that's curious just compare what this person is claiming to what I am. Try piecing together what Baekhyun is saying even though it may be hard if you don't understand Korean.

Deerhanoppar is claiming he said "Ja pae han got deul ah" or "Ja pae han ja deul ah" or "Ja pae han ae deul ah"
I'm claiming he said "Ja pye ah deul" and a muffled "ee yah" at the end, which means he called the members autistic kids."

The user Shithead also adds in a later comment that "Instiz is also a pretty fangirly site that mostly just copy pastes Bestiz posts.
Bestiz is bigger with more SNSD and Big Bang fangirls but also a ton of their antis, and pretty neutral to everyone else.
Every sane person hears it as autistic kid. There are no EXO stans arguing otherwise, they're just trying to drag Kim Yoo Jung down with them.

[OP note: Shithead then links to the site here]

There were 2 bigger posts before this but they got deleted."

[So is Baekhyun guilty? Idk I've always thought he seemed like the type to do something like this, but I don't speak Korean so I have no idea if what he's saying is offensive or not.]

mods, i think lj ate the last version of this post i submitted? If not, plz just ignore this one.../but hopefully everything should be working now >_<;;

Flawless Angel!Kris welcomes you to this messy EXO post!

the word for autistic in korean is extremely similar to the phrase to say "to be defeated." i seriously think this is a mistranslation...
dongsaeng 31st-Mar-2013 04:50 pm (UTC)
and seriously, coming from a username "shithead"? really...
aiedailglow 31st-Mar-2013 04:53 pm (UTC)
Well if it was true, a public apology should be made, and that he be educated that this shit is not okay. And not just because he's a public figure in a public domain.

And yet they do those kind of things to idols that are caught dating, which is like totally normal human behavior. Priorities tck tck tck

to be fair, it could be a colloquial thing like "that's retarded" but it seems like he said it right after they lost, and as it was said above:

"he word for autistic in korean is extremely similar to the phrase to say "to be defeated." i seriously think this is a mistranslation...

I think i'll wait till an apology comes out to believe it.
jrt131n 31st-Mar-2013 04:53 pm (UTC)
So what are people demanding be done? Have his tongue cut out?
gray_fairy 31st-Mar-2013 04:59 pm (UTC)
It could be a mistranslation but if it's not he should apologise indeed. That shit is not cute :/
consequences 31st-Mar-2013 05:01 pm (UTC)
saw this on tumblr a couple of days ago and

baek why
lovelycandygirl 31st-Mar-2013 05:02 pm (UTC)
I want a apology from him.
oniongulru 31st-Mar-2013 05:04 pm (UTC)
I can see no constructive discussion coming out from this "controvery". It's all too blurry to have a legit opinion and stance, so we'll just be going round in circles of uncertainty :/
lwr08xy 31st-Mar-2013 07:28 pm (UTC)
I agree

Insensitive idiot. He better apologize quick.
asnindie 31st-Mar-2013 05:08 pm (UTC)
I don't want to start anything because I like K but hasn't one of them said some serious douchey stuff to their fans before? I remember reading a few fan accounts of it.

Anyway very insensitive of him, id' say he should apologise tbh. Who says stuff like this, I've never even heard normal people stuff like this>_>
bunica1990 31st-Mar-2013 05:22 pm (UTC)
Chanyeol said something about SNSD's looks (I think it was around the black ocean era). There was a post about it on omona. As to something said to their fans, I really have no idea. Links?
daisychains555 31st-Mar-2013 05:09 pm (UTC)
Whether he said it or not, it looks like Kyungsoo didn't find it too funny (either that or he was zoning out like always). If he did say it, I hope he apologizes and learns from his mistakes.
sisterjune 1st-Apr-2013 05:16 pm (UTC)
kyungsoo is forever sending shadey looks at baekyeol and sehun. its p funny tbh. altho i think he does actually like chanyeol, but he has no time for stupidity. prob why he sticks to suho and kai the most haha. (sehun isnt stupid so much as he is a huge brat lol)
asnindie 31st-Mar-2013 05:10 pm (UTC)
The worst part of this mess was probably the "My best friend's autistic and I'm okay with this." These types of comments are really unneeded and plain stupid.
pepper 31st-Mar-2013 05:32 pm (UTC)
B-b-but oppa!!11 :,(
erika_sawajiri 31st-Mar-2013 05:12 pm (UTC)
didn't ivy club upload another version of the video with that part censored/muted out? i don't think they would've done that if it was nothing
aiedailglow 31st-Mar-2013 05:28 pm (UTC)
yes they uploaded the cut version
staaan 31st-Mar-2013 05:13 pm (UTC)
finally @ this post omg

i'm so disappointed, he used to be my bias in exo but i hate brats who throw these words around like it's nothing.
fantaesticbaby 31st-Mar-2013 05:15 pm (UTC)
ikr I'm sorry it's so late, I am so useless with LJ it took me ages to get this post right OTL
hurtmybones 31st-Mar-2013 05:16 pm (UTC)
let's not with the mistranslation/taeyeon 2.0 thing plz. and he better be apologizing for that
gee 31st-Mar-2013 05:18 pm (UTC)
He can eat dirt until the rocks chip all his teeth out. Fuck people who say things like this.
falling_empress 31st-Mar-2013 10:28 pm (UTC)
A+ comment tbh
plantbottle 31st-Mar-2013 05:22 pm (UTC)
It could be a mistranslation. But if he did say that, then that's really disappointing. I'm not going let that cement my entire opinion on him, since he seems like such a fun/honest kid, but...yikes.
prek_drugz 31st-Mar-2013 05:22 pm (UTC)
someone outta slap his rude ass self
and why is there laughing after he said it??????????
exo i wanna keep liking u but this ain't cute
bunica1990 31st-Mar-2013 05:25 pm (UTC)
I am so disappointed in him and I hope he apologizes. By the looks of it, Kai and Sehun were laughing at it too.

OT: That Kris gif is beautiful, OP!

fantaesticbaby 31st-Mar-2013 05:51 pm (UTC)
isn't it just? 8D
I have wanted to use it on a post for ages but never really had the opportunity until now lol.
Here's hoping that Kris remains a decent person and doesn't mess up :x (although he seems to be the most genuinely nice member of exo imo, so i don't think he will)
pepper 31st-Mar-2013 05:28 pm (UTC)
Every single day, K keeps proving just how immature and stupid they're compared to M.

M > K all the way.
hipployta 31st-Mar-2013 06:05 pm (UTC)
I'm not saying anything about EXO-Men vs EXO-Kids...but my avatar speaks for me.

They are kids though...so it happens
miuratenshi 31st-Mar-2013 05:28 pm (UTC)
I was waiting for this to be posted.
bunica1990 31st-Mar-2013 05:29 pm (UTC)
miuratenshi 31st-Mar-2013 05:40 pm (UTC)
Also I don't think it was a mistranslation if the video was taken down and edited.
age_ofconsent 31st-Mar-2013 05:54 pm (UTC)
Since it was edited I'm inclined to believe it's true. I'm not really surprised either. Too bad, I used to really like him as well.
jrt131n 31st-Mar-2013 05:57 pm (UTC)
When things like this happens and people demand apologizes I always find them to be so forced...when they apologizes for the slip of the tongue or getting caught doing something they're not suppose too, I always find that apology isn't always from the heart, but because they want everyone to get off their backs.

If he is going to apologizes he needs to understand and know why this upset people.
higuma_otoshi 1st-Apr-2013 03:47 am (UTC)
I want him to spend a day with some autistic kids and witness first-hand the struggles they go through.

But then again, he might find it hilarious.
