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.

What do you guys think?

Wow...are they seriously bashing him for what he said? I think it is good he is joking around about it because people were way too uptight about the whole situation. And plus, it's not like anything super bad even happened from the scandal, at least to me knowledge. Eunhyuk provides jokes and comedy to this show so obviously he will joke about it, plus all he did was say his ranking went up, not that big a deal at all.

Istg everything is taken way too seriously nowadays.

its more so the fact that even though he was half naked in the photo, I.U is the only that had to apologize for the scandal. Its "funny" for him to make jokes because he doesn't have to suffer the same damage to his image and his gender the way I.U has. This could have really damaged her career and for him to make a joke like this and diminish the situation ESP when he had to bear little consequences and no responsibility is tacky and inconsiderate.

praying people read this comment. chances are they won't.
shoopergirlzoey 16th-Jan-2013 03:52 am (UTC)
She had to apologize though because she posted the photo. The same way if he had posted the photo, he would apologize. And obviously there is some negativity towards him to, as seen in the above comments. And there really has been no damage to her career, isn't she coming back? I don't know anything about IU but I think career wise she is fine.

no responsibly? she uploaded the photo. besides he took more flack for it than she has in the broadcasts.

he was half naked?

if u read netizens buzz. u will realise the Korean netizens are so angry not because IU is in a relationship. but for portraying her character as so innocent. they felt v cheated by what she always say in the variety shows. like why did she have to say she did not date before and had never kiss anyone before etc.
they are angry at her for these lies she made ( maybe she was forced by the company to say those stuff idk.. )

that's why Iu have so much more hate towards her in this situation.

you speak the truth tbh. Poor IU :(

But with him starting to yap, IU is going to get a tiny bit more sympathizers. Clearly no one really wanted to remember the incident. He waited for everything to simmer down to starts bringing it up again. SME idols has foot in mouth syndrome like SME the company. The more they yap, the more idiotic they'll look.

I can't say much since I haven't watched the video (since some translated article isn't even exactly what actually happens in the show sometimes...the way journalist rephrases their sentences ~_~).
But I just want to say one thing. Eunhyuk does have to suffer the same damage to his image and it's not only for him, but the whole SJ.
I don't know if you do despise SJ as a whole or only a couple members, but the scandal does do some bad affect for Eunhyuk and the other members. Some members who are actually just fine have to experience the effect from the scandal just because they are in the same group of him. Everywhere they go, the scandal is brought in every article's comments. One of the possible reasons why IU is the one who's seen to receive more bad effect is because the public already didn't like SJ way before the scandal happened so hating on them isn't even a new thing to do LOL, while IU was so loved by them so the scandal really shocked them, especially with her image as the 'nation's little sister'.
Now, before you judge me wrong, I'd like to make it clear that even though I am ELF, I don't say this because I am okay that (if) Eunhyuk makes a joke about it. IMO that would be one of the stupidest things he ever did. He should have been more careful with what he says.
And I have always been a fan of IU and her music. I don't care if what people say is true or not about her because all I care is her music. I'll still buy her album if the songs are as fine as or even better than her 1집. IU writes her own songs and I appreciate her talent.

MTE. I seriously don't know that it was about IU until I read the translations of netizen's comments.
