Netizens accuse AOA’s Chanmi of glaring at member Choa during live broadcast

1

Netizens have uncovered a video broadcast, first uploaded on July 11th, of what they say appears to be AOA member Chanmi glaring at Choa during a live broadcast.

Netizens pointed out Chanmi towards the end of the video, who they say is seen glaring at Choa. All six members of AOA are seen the video, singing their recent comeback song “Short Hair”.

Three members each stand side-by-side with another three across from them in the room for Super Junior’s “Kiss the Radio.” Around the 3:09-3:15 mark, netizens point out that Chanmi is seen smirking at the floor, before possibly glaring briefly towards Choa’s direction as she was singing the chorus. Then, Chanmi continued to sing her part, in which she gets lost for a second or two and has to catch up to her part.

Netizens have still been commenting on the video, with perspectives ranging from defensive to blunt regarding Chanmi’s behavior. The majority have criticized Chanmi, while sticking up for Choa. Here are the translations from the various comments K-netizens have posted on the official YouTube channel of “KBS CoolFM”:

Choa sings the best, and the girl twice to the right of Choa [a.k.a. the one] with the blatant face expression and [who] looks like she has no manners sings the worst… The tall girl across Choa doesn’t really sing well too… The rest could be seen as on a good level in terms of idols~~ But what I see as a negative factor for the team, is that two of them are singing happily, while the facial expressions of the rest are basically rotten;;;; They’re a rookie group but they already have problems;;; They must be going crazy being unable to attack each other due to their self-doubt and criticism.”

“It’s not the radio [appearance] that you’re seeing, but they filmed it live during the morning so the camera had no focus.”

“That song is living thanks to Choa unnie.”

“Except for Choa, why are all the kids like that? Do they think they have the right to do so after winning 1st place?”

“Choa has enough talent to go solo, but [Chanmi] sure doesn’t know how to be grateful [and is] holding such an expression.”

“While singing, Choa unnie and Minah unnie look bright but why is everyone else like that… Does she have some grudge?”

“Why is that Chanmi glaring at Choa?? For sure, she is glaring at her top-and-bottom during the second half of the video kk this is pointless; out of AOA Choa has the most energy but a girl like that is the maknae kkk by doing that, she has no sense, your singing, body, and face are all not that great, or [why not] lose some weight, you alone are like oil in AOA T^T”

“Why is Chanmi targeting Choa like this kkkkkkkkkkkkkk Seolhyun [also] needs to practice some singing..”

“Seolhyun really kkkkk she must have gotten in with her face k why is she singing like that kkk and what’s with Chanmi glaring at Choa?? It’s a live radio broadcast but are you unable to control your face emotions? It’s not only just two but all of them are glancing at one another and glaring at each other kkk why are they like that.”

“Why is Chanmi like that?? Did something bad happen??”

“Choa is doing all the singing k you can’t even sing but why not try at least controlling your face expressions like Choa whatever may have happened, do you want to make it that obvious? What was Chanmi unable to achieve and be pissed like that, especially as the maknae;”

“Hey Chanmi kkkkkkkkkk why don’t you give up being a singer and lose some weight if you look [at her] like that who wouldn’t feel pissed you sure don’t have manners.”

“? Is Chanmi crazy she can’t sing and she steals Jimin’s part why are you bullshitting and glaring at Choa kkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk.”

I guess they're popular enough for netizens to try starting shit

I'm not a fan of AOA, so I've no idea who is who...but I guess netizens were just bored and had to make a new "scandal" up to entertain themselves! -.-

But I like the song. They've nice voices!
in_noctem 20th-Aug-2014 02:29 pm (UTC)
I honestly didn't see any supposed glaring...but what I got from this is that Choa seriously carries the group vocally. And does her tongue stick out when she reaches for the high notes or am I seeing things.

"and she steals Jimin’s part" LMAO WHAT this isn't the first time in the history of ever someone has covered for another member when they were missing.

Male idols can talk how they were beaten by his fellow member(s) and people just laugh it of with ''boys will be boys'' but if a female idols just give another member a little ''dirty'' look and suddenly she a huge bully...
milafanway 20th-Aug-2014 03:40 pm (UTC)
that shade though, CNBlue? Maybe? IDK too much male idols doing shit backstage and fangirls don't care because it's oppa, SMH!!
kjesta 20th-Aug-2014 04:42 pm (UTC)
All of this.
gray_fairy 20th-Aug-2014 06:57 pm (UTC)
Eh, if you're talking about CN Blue (because I don't remember any similar case atm), Jonghyun got a LOT of shit for slapping Jungshin 3 times and was called a bully by Korean netizens. In fact, I can't stand him since I knew that tbh.

I actually don't remember who it was I just know some male idols have said it :P
gray_fairy 20th-Aug-2014 07:54 pm (UTC)
I only remember CNB tbh, but I doubt if others did it too people didn't say anything. At least Lee Jonghyun got a lot of shit for his actions.
evilvalenstrife 20th-Aug-2014 07:24 pm (UTC)
Why is this being made into a gender issue?

gray_fairy 20th-Aug-2014 07:53 pm (UTC)
Isn't that a typical thing on Omona? It's always "male idols have it better" when it's obvious they get a lot of criticism too when they fuck up, but w/e. Just look at the Jang Geun Suk post from before and netizens' comments...
And if they're talking about CNB, you can see that Lee Jonghyun got a lot of (well deserved) shit for his actions.

BC certain users turn EVERYTHING into a gender thing.
borapaipai 20th-Aug-2014 07:38 pm (UTC)
lol no, I doubt that if someone from a boyband beats another member people will laugh, I really doubt it, just look at that guy from Winner (I don't remember his name lol) supposedly he has beaten another guy when he was in high school or something and now a lot of people are calling him a bully, so I don't understand why are you trying to turn this into a gender issue tbh

gray_fairy 20th-Aug-2014 07:56 pm (UTC)
Yeah, that's Taehyun. Everyone's giving him a lot of shit and some people even pointed out he has that "bully aura".

Edited at 2014-08-20 08:18 pm (UTC)
borapaipai 20th-Aug-2014 08:37 pm (UTC)
Yeah, that's his name! haha and he isn't the only one, other idols have been criticized because they have a ''bully aura'' just as you said or because supposedly they were iljins in high school (*cof* Baekhyun *cof*)so this isn't a thing from what only girls are pointed out.

after watching the vid, i don't see where they got that from. it looked like she spaced out or something
bunica1990 20th-Aug-2014 03:07 pm (UTC)
Idk them, but to me Choa carries the group. My eyes always go to her during their performances.
aeries_amethyst 21st-Aug-2014 02:45 am (UTC)
IAWTC XD

Choa legit carries this group. She's the only relevant member to me in AOA ^-^
uguukawaii 20th-Aug-2014 03:11 pm (UTC)
"all six" there are either 7 or 8 members depending where tf they get six from

also um i mean ia that they could have been peppier if they were getting filmed, its true that only choa and mina are like entertaining to watch here but if chanmi is like a bitter bitxh that sort of gives her a personality and i fuck w her more now......
benihime99 20th-Aug-2014 05:06 pm (UTC)
there was only six of them that day
uguukawaii 20th-Aug-2014 05:08 pm (UTC)
yeah i know but it just seemed a weird way to put it lol
benihime99 20th-Aug-2014 05:09 pm (UTC)
the phrasing of the article is weird
it's not very fluid
hipployta 20th-Aug-2014 03:14 pm (UTC)
All I see is Choa and Jimin when they perform anyway
milafanway 20th-Aug-2014 03:35 pm (UTC)
Bullshit........like when knetizens said Choa had pushed Sunny -.-
NETIZENS:

seroquels 20th-Aug-2014 08:01 pm (UTC)
I forgot about that! lol knets have it out for AOA apparently.
benihime99 20th-Aug-2014 08:06 pm (UTC)
It wasn't AOA's Choa
That was Crayon pop's Choa
seroquels 20th-Aug-2014 08:12 pm (UTC)
See I really did forget all about that incident 😜
aneeleniffum 20th-Aug-2014 03:37 pm (UTC)

marsinblue 20th-Aug-2014 04:59 pm (UTC)
this is seriously reaching.

damn they all look like they'd rather be anywhere than there lol
jewelia13 NetizenBuzz comments!20th-Aug-2014 05:37 pm (UTC)
Yeah, this is much better than my post (which got rejected), lol. Anyways, the original Pann post has been deleted, so make of that what you will.

1. [+110, -20] If as a public figure you can't hide hide your emotions on broadcast, why bother becoming a singer? Chanmi-ya, why don't you go lose weight.

2. [+110, -18] Just checked the video on my phone. Really, why is Chanmi being like that ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ You can only be so stone faced

3. [+104, -22] Chanmi-ya, lose some weight. You're a girl group member, aren't you?

4. [+74, -0] Saw the video myself ㅋㅋ Don't blame this on witch hunting and seriously go watch the video for yourself... She's stone faced and it really shows that she can't hide her emotions in a public place ㅋㅋ

5. [+71, -2] There was also a corner where you answer Ryeowook's questions really fast and when Ryeowook asked Chanmi who the laziest member was, she picked Choa right away; what a jerk, go lose weight Chanmi

6. [+45, -1] Whether she got into a fight with Choa or not, she should know that it's a filmed radio show and managed her expressions accordingly ㅋㅋㅋㅋ

7. [+40, -2] Is Chanmi jealous of Choa? I don't know about the smirk but she definitely glared at her. Choa still works so hard and she's always smiling in other videos too. Either way, she's a great singer so I wish her the best~

8. [+39, -0] Saw the video and it totally looks like she's smirking and glaring at her. If she can't manage her expressions on a filmed radio show, then how much of a jerk is she off camera?

9. [+38, -0] She smirks at her so much ㅋㅋ even misses her part because of it ㅋㅋㅋ

10. [+29, -2] Checked it out and it really does look like she's glaring at her

What the HELL at the all the "go lose some weight" comments?!

gray_fairy 20th-Aug-2014 07:01 pm (UTC)
I don't see any "mean glare" at all. Netizens are reaching for the stars tbh.
ale_chan227 20th-Aug-2014 07:49 pm (UTC)
