Just yesterday, we reported that SISTAR’s Bora revealed how her fellow member Hyorin was a KARA fangirl. While this may not seem like an issue, Korean netizens reprimanded Bora for her usage of informal speech.
Through her Twitter, she had originally posted, “Hyorin is currently fangirling KARA~~^_^” She then corrected the post by writing “KARA-sunbaes“; the term ’sunbae’ is used to respect one’s seniors in the workplace.
So what happened that forced Bora to quickly change up the posts? Below is a written translation of the exchange (from most recent to oldest):
“[Bora] Ah it wasn’t because I didn’t think of them as my sunbaes… ㅠㅜ but it could have seemed that way. Sorry KARA sunbaes ㅠㅠ
RT @171_8cm: Even though they say it doesn’t exist anymore… they still are your sunbaes by a long time.
RT@sistarsistar: [Bora] Hyorin is currently fangirling KARA^^~~ http://yfrog.com/gyfkiij http://yfrog.com/h0blmftj“
A netizen who has saw this Twitter post commented, “It seems like Bora has manners and a good personality because she answered ‘Sorry KARA sunbaes’ right away.”
