1. [+1,641, -201] People were welcoming him back when he announced that he'd be returning to 'Weekly Idol' and then I remember a comment saying that his return is like his boss giving him some time off to rest for his illness but he was actually preparing to transfer to a new job the entire time...
2. [+1,356, -174] Feels like he's thrown 'Infinity Challenge' out ㅋㅋㅋㅋ
3. [+1,149, -158] Wouldn't have hurt to take his comeback slowly...
4. [+177, -23] He made it seem like he left 'Infinity Challenge' because he was sick so fans were all so worried and quietly waiting for him... but all we got were pictures of him going around on vacation and calling it 'treatment'. Fans were all waiting for 'Infinity Challenge' but he randomly announces that he's going to write a web movie and release a song with Defconn and IU ㅋㅋㅋㅋ
5. [+159, -17] The public wouldn't be so cold if his first return project was 'Infinity Challenge'. He's been on the show for over 10 years only to leave just like that without even a proper greeting. All he's doing now is working on music and picking and choosing comeback shows like 'Weekly Idol'.. of course the public isn't going to view that positively. It honestly does feel like he realizes 'Infinity Challenge' is on its last leg so he's only choosing to do shows where he's the main figure.
6. [+156, -17] The problem is that he's returning to everything but 'Infinity Challenge'... he claims it's because of the pressure but he feels no pressure writing for a movie with a 10 billion won investment?
7. [+119, -14] A lot of people would be supporting him if he made his first return to 'Infinity Challenge'.... he made the wrong decision here.
8. [+113, -21] Pretends to have a mental disorder when he wants a break ㅋㅋㅋㅋ panic disorder ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ since when did Korea allow stars with mental illnesses on TV anyway? ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ
9. [+112, -10] He could've just said he didn't want to do the show anymore. Instead he kept making up excuses saying he was too sick and now he's suddenly back all at once on variety shows, producing albums, and writing for a movie. No wonder the public is cold towards him.
10. [+101, -15] Claimed to have a panic disorder but went to vacation in Australia and do all the fun things he's wanted to do and now he's back to singing and writing a movie. What a freaking joke.
