Netizen Buzz was started out of a desire to bridge the gap between what happens in K-Entertainment and why it had to happen. Unlike any other entertainment industry in the world, netizens (internet citizens) play a pivotal role in the decision making process of Korean entertainment companies, and their power and influence simply just cannot be ignored.
Keep in mind that the idiots and trolls you see in the comments section of sites like allkpop or Soompi exist worldwide.

네티즌 버즈 블로그에서 번역되는 댓글들이 한국 대중의 반응이라고 말한적은 단 한번도 없습니다. 극 소수의 네티즌들이 다는 댓글이라는 점은 해외 독자분들도 잘 알고 있는 사실이며 이 댓글과 반응들이 한국 연예계에 미치는 영향을 알고 싶어해 이 블로그가 탄생되었습니다. 악의적은 댓글은 인터넷 어디에나 존재한다는 사실도 잘 알고 있으며 이걸 곧이곧대로 "한국 대중의 반응"이라고 받아들이는 독자는 없습니다.
