BOYS24 Hwayoung's Fans Make Him "Want to Puke"

BOYS24 member Hwayoung is at the center of massive controversy after a leaked audio clip has him berating fans.
In the leaked audio, Hwayoung talks about how he hates being called “oppa” by fans. While the initial statement could be considered rude but harmless, he goes on to mercilessly attack fans and describes how he hates hi-touch events that occur after concerts.
BOYS24 was created to be the successors to girl group I.O.I and debuted through their own male version of CJ E&M‘s reality show, Produce 101.The group was separated into four units by CJ E&M with Hwayoung being placed in the “Sky” unit.
Hwayoung was first a trainee at SM Entertainment, though he left the company soon afterward.
Since the clip was leaked, BOYS24 has made an official statement through their agency, CJ E&M about the group. The statement reveals that Hwayoung will not be attending the groups next event on Friday, February 10th.
"I like being called oppa, not when I hear it from fans though, I fucking hate that.
Ya, Fuck. It’s so annoying when we do the Hi-Touch.
You know, the Hi-Touch? Like when you hold hands and greet fans after the concert is over.
Everyday I go through like 700~800 people and I feel like I’m going to puke.
Their fucking breath smells like shit.
— Hwayoung"
Listen to the audio clip in full below:

Read what CJ E&M had to say about the issue below:
"This is a note of apology from CJ E&M / LIVEWORKS COMPANY to the people who love BOYS24.
First, we sincerely apologize to everyone who was shocked and dismayed because of the news from the Internet last night.
Especially, we really do apologize to the fans who have loved and supported ‘BOYS24’ and its concert at ‘BOYS24 Hall’ since the <BOYS24> premiered last year.
All the while, we recognized the problem of Hwayoung and his privacy issue and we worried that this would heavily tarnish the image of BOYS24. So, we have repeatedly warned him and have tried to give him a chance to redeem himself.
But despite it all, Hwayoung, as written on the various social media outlets and Internet message board today, brought fans to grief and made them disappointed again.
Therefore, we understood the gravity of the situation and held an emergency meeting. And discussions about him and his issue are in progress.
We will state our official position on the issue next week, and I beg to inform you that Hwayoung will not appear on ‘BOYS24 LIVE Concert’ from Friday, February 10th.
Lastly, to all those who have believed in and supported BOYS24, we apologize again from the bottom of our heart for this problem. Thank you.
— CJ E&M"

today is not a good day to be a hwayoung

i mean, most idols probably have these thoughts, and ngl i would think the same. aint nobody want to high-5 hundreds of random people that maybe havent even washed their hands before. but just keep it to yourself dude and dont spill it to your friends (or ex-gf, apparently shes the one who leaked it)
lazmy 9th-Feb-2017 05:37 am (UTC)
idk why they keep letting hi touch events happen when ~conveniently~ the group always ends up with a sick member afterwards

@fans wash ya grubby hands and scrub ya tongue

"I like being called oppa, not when I hear it from fans though, I fucking hate that."
was he unaware of what being an idol entailed or
jasmineakaiumi 9th-Feb-2017 06:41 am (UTC)
lmao ikr like idols are literally products for fans so idk what he was expecting...?
can't have your cake and eat it too like...
glossycream 9th-Feb-2017 04:42 am (UTC)
bruh sure accidentally smelling other people's breath is nasty and he's human after all but tbh his success in the game depends on those people who he called out for having bad breaths
bob_dabuilda 9th-Feb-2017 04:43 am (UTC)

I feel bad that his ex girlfriend leaked the footage because that was a personal conversation. But dude you got into Kpop. Oh well weren't we all douchey at 21? And I'm sure celebs have these thoughts at times and even voice them to close ones.

Now his career is done. Too bad.
pippopippo 9th-Feb-2017 04:44 am (UTC)
does he really have 700-800 fans? 🤔
sodapab 9th-Feb-2017 04:49 am (UTC)
LOL mte. but I don't know anything about this group tbh.

Hwayoung, huh?
Please tell me it's not that one fabulous dancer from their initial MV; I like him.

Btw, Is LJ/Omono not working properly for you on mobile?
boxcuttergirl 9th-Feb-2017 07:02 am (UTC)
if you mean the pirouette guy, thats hongin
jrt131n 9th-Feb-2017 04:51 am (UTC)
I'm just trying to understand why he decided to become an idol then? Like its not like people don't know what goes into being an idol....that shit is apart of the job bruh....
aqqueous 9th-Feb-2017 04:53 am (UTC)
what she said what rude but lets be real who actually goes to a high touch with their breath smelling like sour milk? I would drown myself in Listerine if i had a chance to see my fave
goshipgurl 9th-Feb-2017 04:59 am (UTC)
sasaengs that havent showered in weeks bc they were too busy stalking oppa
jinkiestabi 9th-Feb-2017 04:54 am (UTC)
Legit all idols don't care for hi-touches and fan-meetings. I would hate it, too if I were an idol. Hell, even as a fan, I'd pass on the hi-touches and fan=meetings unless I'm for SURE leaving with the digits or somebody coming to the hotel.

Fans can be loud and annoying, they say rude shit and pass it off as fake concern or weird that makes you feel awkward, and they don't understand boundaries, so being that close to somebody when they're breath is hot is unpleasant. Duhhhhhh. But YOU don't say that you fucking smarty pants. And you especially don't say it when you haven't even made yourself relevant yet. Lol.

I hate my boss, but I wouldn't tell him that right before asking him to be reference. Come on, now. Pick your battles, boo.
goshipgurl 9th-Feb-2017 05:01 am (UTC)
kpop fanmeetings arent even that great tbh, you say hi, get a sign and thats it. you cant even ask them questions or talk to them bc manager oppa will push you to the next one as soon as they finished signing your paper.
bri_and_red 9th-Feb-2017 04:57 am (UTC)

I wasn't aware Boys24 already happened(?)...not that I would have watched it anyways...were they the people covering all of those boy group songs a while ago?

Honestly, if he doesn't like being an idol now he should probably quit before actually becoming known and getting fans
lazmy 9th-Feb-2017 05:29 am (UTC)
he wont have to worry about fans soon so he and his nose will be free
springsky 9th-Feb-2017 05:05 am (UTC)
are you one of their ten fans? if so, are you offended? does your breath stink? did oppa mean it???
this is making me laugh way too hard rn

i tried to watch this show bc I loved produce 101 but it was sooooooo boring
cosmopudin 9th-Feb-2017 05:07 am (UTC)
lol who?
boxcuttergirl 9th-Feb-2017 07:03 am (UTC)
ot but i love your icon <3
pineapple_soda 9th-Feb-2017 05:09 am (UTC)
this mess had me so confused with other t-ara stuff and i'm like how is hwayoung on boys24?
kaypukis 9th-Feb-2017 05:12 am (UTC)
ugh, why would you be an idol then?
if you don't want to do high five then raise that to your company or just never be an idol.

but this comment just enough to bring fans back to reality.
your forever smiling idol is basically not all smiling inside lol
baeby_bloo_skys 9th-Feb-2017 05:17 am (UTC)
when i first saw this the caption was something like he doesn't like to be touched by fans, so i was like bruh i get it bc inappropriate touching/groping is a big problem in kpop. then i actually heard what he said and now i'm just like ???? did you miss the memo how did you think your life was going to be? did you think fans were going to support you silently and from afar?
rosiemotleymind 9th-Feb-2017 05:19 am (UTC)
I'm a huge germaphobe when it comes to touching people so I wouldn't want to do that as an idol but I would understand it's part of the job. And just carry some hand sanitizer or something. But damn at his realness lmao! Honestly im sure idols have these thoughts every damn day and I don't blame them. Especially when you know you should be grateful but that a lot of them are actually batshit crazy and you have to deal with it with a smile on your face.
callherblondie 9th-Feb-2017 02:08 pm (UTC)
If I was an idol I would legit be terrified of my fans (given that I even had any lmao). It would feel like a hostage situation.
lazmy 9th-Feb-2017 05:28 am (UTC)
as one of the founding members of the clammy dead fish hands club i think hi touches are dumb but YOOOOO as an idol it should be standard procedure to never trust anyone enough to tell them how you really feel unless they're in the same situation as you

Come through messy 2017!
annayism 9th-Feb-2017 05:32 am (UTC)
lol if he's already over idol life as a nugu then he might as well quit. run 4 ur life while u can boy
today's lesson: don't name your child hwayoung
pseudo_shigure 9th-Feb-2017 05:38 am (UTC)
is he the one that initially want to leave?
mmmalvina 9th-Feb-2017 05:42 am (UTC)
i say drag him. no sympathy for unthankful celebrities who like shitting on the very people who made them happen (although no idea who this particular guy is lol)
jazzygyu 9th-Feb-2017 05:51 am (UTC)
Right. I'm sure there are idols who don't like doing hi touches but I think his comment went too far. He's not talking about stalker fans here he's talking about fans who bought multiple copies of his album so they can get a chance to meet him at scheduled event. "I Iike being called oppa but not by fans" I'm sorry but he sounds ungrateful.
jeit91 9th-Feb-2017 05:47 am (UTC)
700-800 fans

donaldjdrumpf 9th-Feb-2017 05:51 am (UTC)
Boys24 fill stadiums!
donaldjdrumpf 9th-Feb-2017 05:53 am (UTC)
LOL Brush your teeth/tongue you gross ass fans!

Honestly if someone with bad breath approaches me when I debut with NamTae, I will straight up slap them. And no consequences btw, diplomatic immunity bitches.
saemcrh 9th-Feb-2017 09:16 am (UTC)
Hopefully that happens and you get impeached.
