Bella of Elris mocks Wanna One Lai Guanlin's accent.

source: jisungyoons, nudongs

Imagine having the gall to come for a 15 year old , multilingual foreigner's accent, yikes.

ughhhh i seriously hate stuff like this. it's completely unnecessary and so nearsighted. guanlin can literally speak 3 languages and is the maknae of a group he had to go through months of stress to get into?? like, where do you get off on this. what benefit is there. do you feel proud of yourself for making such a "funny" joke.

for a moment I thought we were talking about a western sub-celebrity like a disney actress type of thing until I understood it was a kpop girl group that I just never heard of.

the worst thing is to think about the chances of someone correcting her? the girl will think nothing is wrong because her members laugh, the radio host laughed, "it's just a joke, come on".

ugh making fun of accents, speech impediments, etc. is the laziest form of humor. Even if it's "all in good fun", just having it pointed out can be a huge source of insecurity for someone who just wants to learn a language. It's not cute

MTE esp to your last part.We saw on the show how insecure Guanlin is about his pronunciation.and how hard he worked to improve it (rapping with the pencil in his mouth, saying he won't order jokbal because he's afraid of mispronouncing it).

i'm not here for this AT ALL. i really dislike it when people try to be funny about someone accent/prounciation. it's rude and shouldn't even happen. it's especially angering when it comes from a person who just speaks one language. like WHO IS YOU HMM???

bitch who?
boxcuttergirl 17th-Jul-2017 09:49 am (UTC)

not only is this ugly but she's dumb as shit lol, coming for a wanna one member when they're huge right now and her own group is trying to gain traction
myrrhcat 17th-Jul-2017 11:39 am (UTC)
i'm glad they made an apology, hopefully she actually reflected on her actions and they're not just putting out an empty apology to save face.
i was excited for this group and i feel like they have a lot of potential but :/

side note, does guanlin have a fandom internationally? i don't follow boy groups but i feel like i've seen stans for almost every other wanna one member except him. i mean obviously he has fans in korea who voted for him

If he has an accent it probably means he is bilingual or maybe he can speak even more (I'm sorry I don't know anything about either of them).

Never heard of her group but they can stay nugu.

Edit: whoops missed OP's note he is multilingual as expected. That was shallow af of her.

This comment section is already better than when Ikon made fun of Momo's accent

For all the training idols do you'd think by now they'd include some sort of cultural sensitivity training and education etc, jesus

lonelymoon 17th-Jul-2017 03:50 pm (UTC)
What career?
kimbafierce 17th-Jul-2017 05:04 pm (UTC)
I'm just pissed that she apologized (as she should) while that ikon dude did not. So pissed!
lazmy 17th-Jul-2017 09:00 pm (UTC)
