Birthday boy Heechul is pissed at sasaengs, taking a year off of Twitter

[Trans] @Heedictator: Don't follow me to the front of our house or the ward office. I thought maybe I'd become a little nicer after turning 30, but it seems like I can't. Because there's still a bit of post-accident trauma remaining, I'm scared of risking my life driving to escape (from sasaeng taxis) every single time. Even if I'm disappointed, and should know when to stop, because I have only one life to live, I can't just let it off. It's my fault, I lack an understanding heart. And (sasaeng taxi)
ahjussi's, please stop ripping off unknowing foreign fans, with smiles on your faces. Because living off kids like that while smiling makes you seem like a beggar. As a round-off to this tweet, I wish that there won't be anymore victims like this.

I will live quietly for the next 1 year without even tweeting. See you in a year's time. Thank you to the many people who wished me happy birthday.

-T/N: He doesn't mention that it's about sasaeng taxis, but you can infer from the context-

SMH at sasaengs and all their enablers.

I always got the feeling he didn't like Eeteuk and his constant catering to fans. Heechul has always been harsh with fans when needed and it is part of the reason why I like him.

It is a shame people can't leave him alone to the point where he wants to disappear.

"And (sasaeng taxi)

That is a huge problem in every country :(

lol I don't think he's just talking about ripping people off because of a language barrier. Sasaeng taxi drivers exchange numbers with sasaengs so that they can call them when they want to stalk idols. They make a lot of money responding to the sasaengs calls and speeding dangerously after idols. I've read blogs from fans studying abroad where if they make it obvious they're a kpop fan (waiting outside the sm building) sasaeng taxi drivers will approach them and tell them 'rumors' / say they know where x is and can bring them there.

But nowadays it seems like everyone knows about sasaengs so those fans should know what they're doing.

Yeah, that's probably one reason why they never followed each other on twitter...
