[Update] Chanyeol's screencap proved to be photoshopped but scandal develops into a witch hunt

Another Pann post was discovered where a fan explained that the screencap was photoshopped because the colors were off (the commenter's name should be blue and there should be an arrow next to his reply, it should look like this). 

Unfortunately, the other two pann posts have already been ranked at the top all day and are nearing almost a thousand comments. More on that after the translation:

Pann [+57, -23] 6,268 views: Park Chanyeol is not the one that bashed Soshi ㅋㅋㅋ Why all of a sudden now?

Why is that mini-homepage cap randomly coming up now? It's not Park Chanyeol. I don't know who uploaded it but I think the fans who are believing it right away as well as the people hating on him are contributing to the problem. Saying that it's right and believing it to be true is only contributing to the distortion of the truth.

That cap has been around since before EXO's debut. There as a virtual group named Sonyun Chunji at the time and there were a lot of rumors surrounding them, this being one of them. It was all revealed to be a rumor then. I don't know why Park Chanyeol is being wrapped up into this mess now. The rumors about Sonyun Chunji involved the boys supposedly going around saying all of the other groups were just experiments for their debut, playing with their nintendos at a TVXQ concert, and the SNSD bashing. There was a fancafe that exposed it all to be fake so you can find it all there ㅋㅋㅋ. 

There's no proof that he really did it and all you did was believe something someone spread with malicious intentions and jump in on the hate. What's so different from what you're hating him now for? It's as if you were waiting for the opportunity to hate on him without even checking whether it was true. Hate on him only after you have the facts. 

It should be suspicious just from the fact that the cap doesn't show any other part of his mini-homepage.

1. [+24, -4] It is a rumor. The commenter's name in the post should be blue and there's no arrow next to his reply. It's photoshopped. It was already revealed before EXO's debut.

2. [+15, -0] Please spread this ㅋㅋㅋ The OP is telling the truth

3. [+13, -0] The thing about SM idols is that whenever a new group's about to debut, people make up all sorts of rumors saying they bashed so and so, they copied so and so, they dated so and so. They end up getting hated on by every SM fandom. But then time passes and everyone's like, 'Hey, they're not bad', and then 'We're the friendly SM Line' I'm pretty sure this is what's happening to EXO ㅋㅋㅋ Just truck through it, SHINee went through this too


EXO fans will have to work a lot harder to spread that because compare that to the hell being raised in the first pann (139,369 views and 1,040 comments) and the second pann (71,355 views and 300 comments), it's not anywhere near the rankings with almost zero possibility of it being viewed by anyone else. The pann was only released a couple hours after the first two panns so it's had all day to catch up, which it hasn't. 

The first pann's being spammed with people demanding that he be kicked out of EXO. For more perspective, here are the translations of every comment on the most recent page in the second pann:

"I'm an EXO fan as well and I really believe EXO needs to apologize for this;;;;"

"I heard he already apologized at a fancafe made when he was a trainee."

"The only way for this to go away is if he apologizes to SNSD otherwise this is going to follow him around for the rest of his career. Why is he apologizing to his fancafe members, what did he do to them? He needs to do it directly to the people he hurt."

"This isn't something you can shield. Even if it was said during his trainees, he needs to apologize for it."

"I don't understand people saying he can swear if he wants since he was a trainee at the time."

"I used to care about EXO because SNSD mentioned them so often but it looks like they were just bashing them behind their backs. What a disappointment."

"I'm a hardcore SM fan but I can't shield this. Stupid fangirls that are sitting around shielding this, you make me laugh."

"I love Chanyeol but this makes me hate him, seriously."

"I was worried about this never resurfacing so I'm glad it's back. It's also ridiculous fans are shielding this. He's no different than Soyeon and Yoon Eun Hye."

"I feel so bad for SNSD."

So it's developed into a huge, raging witch hunt. 


this is hilarious because i'm currently studying Arthur Miller's The Crucible and that was all about witch-hunting

Had to read and watch it during English my 9th garde year. I would have confessed so hard. I would not be hanged over some BS like that.
fantaesticbaby 25th-Jan-2013 09:11 pm (UTC)
I don't really know what to believe any more... but I'm still not a massive fan of Chanyeol.
yesungholic 25th-Jan-2013 09:15 pm (UTC)
Still asking: who cares if it was him or not? if it was him, he was 15, he was a hormonal kid who lived on impulse and hormnes and probably wrote that post just to get laid. if it wasn't, people have to get a life because they could use their free time doing idk...get a job, have a dating life...-_-

Just truck through it, SHINee went through this too

Repeating this in my head like a mantra because sometimes being in this fandom is tiring

Userpic makes this comment beautiful. XD

How is that proof enough it's fake? Maybe that's the way cyworld looked back in 2008? Kind of like how YouTube changes every year...
burger 25th-Jan-2013 09:16 pm (UTC)
lmao I thought the same but didn't wanna say it bc idk much about cyworld
prettyminstrel 25th-Jan-2013 09:17 pm (UTC)
damn. let's just move on, everyone
sashays27 25th-Jan-2013 09:18 pm (UTC)
I feel sorry for exo because the damaged is alr done.
I realise a lot of people (not just K netizens, even the netizens here) just prefer to hate on or dislike rather than believing this..

I dont even think as many would click into this article than the original scandal article.

It's not 'proven' though

However tbh I'm not going to hate a kid who said this at 15. It was stupid and low but idt his career should be ruined bc of it.
hellodee16 25th-Jan-2013 09:55 pm (UTC)
nobody here actually wishes for his career to be ruined because of this
heck most here don't actually hate him, just indifferent or dgaf
they're just calling out how stupid it was to post something like that knowing he'll be in the same company with the girls. that's it.
supplanter 25th-Jan-2013 09:19 pm (UTC)
I don't really care, but if this really seems like a big deal and SM wants to protect their investment (11 other guys wrapped up in this!) they should just have SNSD make a statement or something. Although then I guess ppl will be "look at SM forcing SNSD to make nice with this asshole" or whatever....
miwa201 25th-Jan-2013 09:20 pm (UTC)
Actually, I read that it still is him. You can see that blue arrow if you're friends with the person whose cyworld you're seeing. So the only thing that proves is that whoever screencapped that was not Chanyeol's friend.
I did read that he apologized after he got in SM though.
miliy96 25th-Jan-2013 09:20 pm (UTC)

The Crucible is so much fun for me
rosetta16 25th-Jan-2013 09:22 pm (UTC)
Now the ones that were bashing and asking him for an apology should apologies

and if he did, it was 5 years ago he was inmature and he had probably already apologies to the girls

rosetta16 25th-Jan-2013 09:29 pm (UTC)
by the way 5 years ago I was a SNSD anti, now I love them, people change (and mature and stop being jealous of how flawless they r, wae so flawless ;A; ♥♥♥♥ )
frantastic 25th-Jan-2013 09:23 pm (UTC)
this girl on tumblr says it's real and it's a well known thing among k-fans.

lol idk anymore.
honeyfunnybunny 25th-Jan-2013 09:29 pm (UTC)
It would make sense why sones were so against him being there at the romantic fantasy then. They know so much we don't after all xD
keyllastic 25th-Jan-2013 09:24 pm (UTC)
It was like 5 years ago. Tasteless, stupid, etc etc but let's all just move on... Besides, if it was real, without netizens bringing it up I doubt he would even remember writing stuff like that. I hardly remember what I blogged about a week ago, talk about a few years.
biased opinion: exo gets enough hate already, give them a rest.
