KPop idols are only humans like Korean Pop fans. They make mistakes, and being in the spotlight is nearly impossible for them to hide when it happens.
Sometimes, these KPop idols deserve criticism of what they have done. But in the other time, they have no control over it. Still, whether with sensible reason or not, fans won’t let things go and hate Kpop idols.
Here is the list of 10 Kpop idols who get more hate in the Korean Pop industry (whether they deserve or not), and the reasons (whether sensible or not).
1. Blackpink Jennie
Because of the so-called “bad attitude,” scandals, and “lazy dancing” controversy, Blackpink Jennie becomes one of the most criticized idols. Fans think that YG Entertainment was showing favoritism to her by giving better clothes and more promotions. It’s over years ago, but fans wouldn’t let these things go.
2. Red Velvet Yeri
Yeri has been hated since she was added as one member of Red Velvet. Fans criticized her as lazy and uncoordinated on stage. Some even call her attention seeker for crying at Jonghyun’s funeral and having many famous friends.
3. Momoland Nancy
Back in her early teens, Nancy made a joke of bulimia, an eating disorder. Hopefully, as she gets older, she has learned the lesson, and fans can forgive her.
4. (G)I-DLE Soyeon
People hated Soyeon because of a controversial topic. People accused her of cultural appropriation in (G)I-DLE’s music.
5. BTS Jungkook, BTS V, and BTS Jimin
These three youngest members of BTS get more hate than the rest of the BTS members. The reason? It’s still unclear.
6. ASTRO Eunwoo
Astro is good looking and attractive. That is why he gets hate from KPop fans. Such an insensible reason, isn’t it?
7. EXO Kai
Well, well, Kai has had dating scandals, including with f(X) Krystal and Blackpink Jennie. It might be the reason why some people hate EXO Kai.
8. TWICE Tzuyu
Being the visual of TWICE, not having the best vocals, and lack of emotion on stage are the reasons people hate Tzuyu. It’s not her fault that she is good looking.
Fans think that Sakura got favoritism while on Produce 48. She was criticized for having too much screen-time compared to the other girls.
10. Kang Daniel
People hate Kang Daniel for dating Jihyo and being the most famous member in Wanna One. But, it has been a year. People really need to move on. In fact, Kang Daniel is now having his own reality show and still popular after his two-months hiatus.
Her scandal with Super Junior Eunhyuk makes people dislike her. Moreover, after BTS Jungkook described her as his ideal type, people arouse more hate on IU.
12. Mamamoo Hwasa
People hate Hwasa for being hot and sexy, yet at the same time, people call her fat and ugly. It is just because she doesn’t look like Korean beauty standards. For instance, her skin is darker, and she’s not as skinny as other female KPop idols.
13. Super Junior Choi Siwon
The scandal was in 2017 that Siwon’s family dog bit a neighbor, who then died from an infection. This issue resulted in huge debate in South Korea about safety around pet animals in crowded cities like Seoul. But, hey, it happened like three years ago. Why don’t people just let it go?
