Anchorman Jo Woo Jong apologizes for statement on INFINITE's looks


Article: Anchorman Jo Woo Jong apologizes for statement on INFINITE's looks, "I did not pull off the script properly"

Source:
Mydaily via Nate

During an interview with Sunggyu and L, he said, "We have two members from INFINITE here today. I think they came in order of looks, starting from the least handsome to the most."

Sunggyu handled it wittily by asking back, "You mean I'm the most, right?"

He later apologized, "The least handsome is of course me, I know... It was a part of the script but I don't think I pulled it off properly. I'm a fan who loves INFINITE myself so I apologize once again."

-

1. [+309, -46] Why is this controversial? ㅋㅋ INFINITE fangirls, you do realize that you acting like this just makes it harder for your group, right? ㅋㅋ

2. [+288, -15] Basically saying "It was in the script, stop hating me"

3. [+270, -37] What a fuss over nothing at all. Talk about an overreaction ㅋㅋㅋ

4. [+26, -13] I'm so sick of fangirls, I think even the INFINITE members would be sick of them too. Sunggyu handled it nicely but of course the fangirls are foaming at the mouth over anyone who so much as lays a finger on their oppas. Doesn't matter if their oppas do drugs or anything because they'll shield them to the ends of the earth meanwhile a female idol showing an inch of skin turns them into the nation's sl*ts ㅋㅋㅋ

5. [+25, -11] It's actually worse in the video, Park Eun Young's reaction especially. She doesn't realize that Sunggyu is forcing himself to laugh over the matter but she mocks him.

6. [+23, -14] Stupid fangirls obviously think this anchorwoman is some nobody because he's on a variety show and they can talk to him however they want. He's a Korean anchorwoman... who gives a sh*t about this nugu group like INFINITE compared to him? Fuc* off you stupid fans!

7. [+22, -10] Stupid fangirls can't even take a joke

8. [+19, -9] It's all a script, what's so controversial about it. Jo Woo Jong was not in the wrong at all.

9. [+17, -7] Not even a big deal

10. [+12, -15] Jo Woo Jong-ssi, I advise that you don't mess with the idols. Even North Korea would be scared of messing with South Korea just because of how scary the fans are.

  8. I think all of the commenters are overreacting too though... I mean, it's an understandable reason to be annoyed, and he apologised and that's it right?

    Infinite fangirls are gonna make the script writer square up and then they're gone start shouting "WORLDSTAR, WORLDSTAR."

    ReplyDelete
  14. He's scared lol. And i like the way sunggyu answered it, it's smart and funny~

    ReplyDelete
  15. didn't realize it was such a big deal? i guess knetz take it to another level

    ReplyDelete
  16. Jokes focused on looks need to stop too tbh.

    EXACTLY! So sick of people who thinks it's okay for these boys to strip but once the females own the stage with some skin, they call out on them so much!! And we're talking about fangirls! We should all stand up for girl power honestly! Okay rant out :)

    ReplyDelete
  18. think about it this way, would they introduce two girl group members as one that is the least good looking and one that is the most? it's rude

    ReplyDelete
  19. what do girls stripping have to do with people making jokes out of someone's look? check yourself

    ReplyDelete
  20. Sunggyu probs gives a ring to his cousin and she rings the anchorman hahahaha Bless Sunggyu and his sense of humour, i like the "my cousin works at kbs" skit so much in dugeun india hahahahhahahahha

    ReplyDelete
  21. alright but how does that relate to the article tho

    ReplyDelete
  22. what kind of boyfriend mocks his gf's looks...

    ReplyDelete
  23. what kind of boyfriend is that

    ReplyDelete
  24. if he did the same people who are here in the comments (on nb) calling out fangirls would be raging

    ReplyDelete
  25. That's one a hell of a messed up boyfriend

    ReplyDelete
  26. she needs to get rid of him

    ReplyDelete
  27. These type of jokes should be reserved for personal matters (like between friends)~~ these never work out in public matters because...well, for obvs reason lol

    ReplyDelete
  28. partynextdoor ♡May 17, 2015 at 4:13 AM

    Before making these kind jokes you should always think about this : "Is it kind? Is it true? Is it necessary?"

    ReplyDelete
  29. They're just joking but suddenly her boyfriend put joking about looks and my friend was crying like a crazy.

    ReplyDelete
  30. I assume they had earlier complained and that's why he's apologising? Or is he apologising in advance after realising how bad the line sounded?

    ReplyDelete
  31. Its cos the article was pretty pointless. It was just an honest mistake. But the commenter made a point, so here I am.

    ReplyDelete
  32. it's not because we're overreacting.. it is because we seriously find it wrong to rank someone's looks NO ONE HAS THE RIGHT TO DO THAT

    ReplyDelete
  33. Ofcourse inspirits cant even react when someone literally putting down sunggyu and make joke about his "ugly face". Ofcourse inspirits are stupid fangirl overreacting over "small matter". 3 years ago they keep saying sunggyu's album is a flop and failure and now its okay to mock his look. For fuck sake u people

    ReplyDelete
  34. I have no idea but I seriously didn't see a full-on fandom rebellion, maybe there were complaints on pann or something. Even if there were the fans are right because it's a rude "joke". But people are acting like the fans are boycotting the network or something

    ReplyDelete
  35. It was a comment based on what the commenter on the article. You should check YOURself. Huh.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Lmao. It's mostly just sunggyu fangirls than infinite fans as a whole

    ReplyDelete
  37. Talk about rough jokes ㅋㅋㅋ

    ReplyDelete
  38. and your comment still makes no sense because usually people calling girl idols sl*ts are not fangirls

    ReplyDelete
  39. I also think that this is not a big deal . As a fan of Infinite and sunggyu stan seeing the mc apologizes on sns make me feel bad . He is doing his job and he dont even hv any intention to mock sunggyu look . Sometimes , fans really going overboard . And its weird to see they can laughing off when sunggyu was treated the same way on weekly idol but got mad with this short interview

    ReplyDelete
  40. poking fun on looks is rude af. public knows the one whos the most handsome is L n tht automatically means tht he referred to sunggyu as the ugliest in infinite. glad tht sunggyu handle it well tho . the hell is wrong with the scriptwriter anyway tsk

    ReplyDelete
  41. gyu is my bias when the mc said that its really rude but gyu answer AND its enough he knows hes handsome and that's enough for me LOVE YOU GYUZIZI

  42. When u get famous don't expect butterflies and rainbows...haters gonna flock from every direction

    ReplyDelete
  43. Tell her to get a new boyfriend immediately.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Why I feel the commenter are mainly Infinite haters...

    ReplyDelete
  45. He isn't even ugly? What is it that's so wrong about Sung Gyu. His monolids? People are weird as fuck

    ReplyDelete
  46. I was about to be fan of infinite but i couldn't cuz of their rude fan they all over pann and they now equally rude like exo fan

    ReplyDelete
  47. He is not the most handsome any ways

    ReplyDelete
  48. really? I don't see any of them^^

    ReplyDelete
  49. Of course inspirits will react to call him like that but before judging but yourself into his place how would you react ,its not a big deal because sunggyu can handle it better than us :)♥♥♥

    ReplyDelete
  50. so we're rude for pointing out that it's rude to make fun of someone's looks? alrighty then

    ReplyDelete
  51. partynextdoor ♡May 17, 2015 at 4:30 AM

    This happens to me a lot, except the guy is not even my boyfriend. He is my friend's boyfriend. I have to put up with him making fun of me by pulling dumb jokes out of his ass and he's always hitting me like I didn't sign up for this smh

    ReplyDelete
  52. NOT FUNNY. HIM & WHOEVER WHO WROTE THE SCRIPT LOL. That's rude. Just careless words can hurt someone forever especially someone's self confidence.

    Poor Sunggyu his wittiness save them in that awkward moment tbh, God bless him..

    ReplyDelete
  53. ah yes so if me and my friend met someone and they said "oh look the pretty friend and the ugly friend are here" and if we here this more than once nope it's not rude at all and if we or people around us react then we're just soooo sensitive and hah!!!! joking about looks is so funny!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  54. Not even an inspirit but I think it's extremely rude to pick on someone's looks even if it's part of the script. It's something I've always disliked about Korean shows, the fact that they give themselves a free pass to nitpick on another person's possible insecurities.

    ReplyDelete
  55. I really dont see much rudeness than to judge a WHOLE fandom because they dont think like you do¿

    ReplyDelete
  56. Because they are ^^

    ReplyDelete
  57. From the beginning of time, lots of humor is based on insults. However, it takes skill, timing and the relationship between the individuals matters. The funny insults you may have with your brother are inappropriate with strangers.

    ReplyDelete
  58. That's subjective + that doesn't mean you get to mock his looks

    ReplyDelete
  59. im not saying OH GYU IS SO FUCKING HANDSOME KNETZ ARE BLIND whatsoever. The point is i just sicj of people mocking about his face instead of focusing on his beautiful voice. for example the first thing they mention on yoo hee yeol sketchbook is about his "look".

    ReplyDelete
  60. It's not okay mock ppl for his looks but most ppl are teased and given shit about it and they have to suck it up bc it's their job

    ReplyDelete
  61. yeah, they areㅠㅠ

    ReplyDelete
  62. that's very awful of him but three nights? that seems a little excessive

    ReplyDelete
  63. Idgi? Why are they even putting down people's looks like that. Its good that Sunggyu is chill about that but imagine if this happens to girl groups, im sure the comments made by the netizens would turn a 180 degrees for sure. Making a joke out of someone's looks is never cool i swear

    ReplyDelete
  64. so what was the order

    ReplyDelete
  65. HAHAHAHH FUCK just because sunggyu handled it nicely FOR THE CAMERA do you think he feels alright when HIS LOOKS ARE CONSTANTLY BEING PUT DOWN BY EVERYONE??????????

    ReplyDelete
  66. But oppa ain't ugly tho'. Lol People should be careful with their words always. Plus he looks cute in that broadcast and got to be with other artists and friends. <3

    ReplyDelete
  67. The closer people are, they more they use insult humor on each other, but of course it isn't appropriate with strangers.

    ReplyDelete
  68. have her mock at his newly single staus

    ReplyDelete
  69. As expected from an article coming from NATE duh!

    ReplyDelete
  70. well if INFINITE themselves handled it well, let's just leave it there and not escalate things

    ReplyDelete
  71. 10. [+12, -15] Jo Woo Jong-ssi, I advise that you don't mess with the
    idols. Even North Korea would be scared of messing with South Korea just
    because of how scary the fans are.


    i wanna upvote this comment. Really. i laughing so hard right now

    ReplyDelete
  72. Actually, no one can judge that for sure because 1) music is a universal form of art that everyone (unless One is the silent type) likes, but whether the said music fits everyone is subjective (just bc I like music doesn't mean I like Rap/R&B/Jazz, et cetera). Who we are personal fans of, will be unknown mostly bc we do not know each other's on personal levels. Just bc there are a section of comments with negative emotions conveyed- doesn't say whether it is all fangirls or fanboys or anti's (only on said personal discoveries that One Individual is a 'Spammer/Troll/Anti' type). When Hara got called out by Kyuhyun's ELF fangirls, they were indeed 1)mostly fangirls online commenting and 2) hating on Hara. A hater is a hater- whether boy or girl. Most Kpop fans are indeed girls. You could find like 10 (+more in certain continents/countries/provinces/cities) girls to a boy or up to 3 these days. Online- it seems more believable that a woman (female) would comment than that of a man (male) on any topic relative to Kpop.

  73. yay I'm happy you're not a fan yet :)

  74. Mocking someone's face in a country obsessed with looks, and he happens to be an idol, on television too. He should've known this was coming.

    ReplyDelete
  75. it doesn't matter if inspirits are overreacting or not it not okay to make fun of people look no matter what the situation it good that Sunggyu handled this

    ReplyDelete
  76. so we are rude for being done with putting up with shit about a member's looks WHO IS ALWAYS BEING CRITICIZED when he obviously looks very normal?

    ReplyDelete
  77. felt bad for the anchorman .... anchorman-nam don't listen to these childish fangirls don't let them put u down , their opinion doesn't matter s long as u think your handsome then u r

    ReplyDelete
  78. Can someone explain to me why INFINITE almost always gets shit from broadcast and interview people??
    And I don't think it has anything to do with the size of their company, especially now that they have a made a huge name for themselves.
    And why does their looks get mocked so much?
    I seriously don't get, sure they aren't the best looking people out there but shouldn't their nice, humorous and charmful personalities be worth more than looks??
    There's no such thing as world handsomest idol, or the prettiest idol or even the most charming idol.
    Ever idol is charming and talented in their own rights, and mocking people's looks, especially on TV, should never be something to be made fun off.
    ESPECIALLY in a country where there's such a high number of suicides and where looks are so important, people are made to post pictures of themselves on job application forms.

    ReplyDelete
  79. want until I come up to you and tell you how ugly you are. I wonder how you would react
    It's fucking disgusting to always mention someone's looks when the person is there to sing and bless everyone with their voice.
    Hoe many times did the boy himself have to put up with others bringing him down for his looks? As a fangirl I would get so annoyed so stfu
    On another note, Sunggyu is handsome so pls

    ReplyDelete
  80. There's so much news of Inifinite these days. More so than of BTS (don't know them, don't want to), Hyosung, Yewon & (creepy) Henry, Big Bang, chart manipulation and for goodness sake hairstyles (styles in general) that made "so and so" look "So OMG slap my hand and give it to a hungry fangirls/boy different".

    ReplyDelete
  81. well if you judge a group based on a what a couple of fans say then it's okay we don't need you in the fandom either.

    ReplyDelete
  82. felt kinda bad for anchorman when he said i m the least handsome ... it's not even his fault ... it's producer and the scriptwriters fault ...

    ReplyDelete
  83. "if he can't take hate he shouldn't be an idol"
    so all idols deserve hate????
    "infinite fans are rude"
    we're rude for pointing out that the anchorman's comment was completely unnecessary????
    "can't you take a joke"
    DON'T MAKE FUN OF LOOKS????

    ReplyDelete
  84. To be fair he was following the script. The hate should've been directed to the PD's.

    ReplyDelete
  85. To me ithink because they know infinite would replay with something humorous??infinite know how to answer to these comments really well :)

    ReplyDelete
  86. love your icon btw

    ReplyDelete
  87. Well the script was indeed rude, and Sunggyu handled it well like how he usually is. That doesn't make it not wrong for dping that on broadcast. Fans pointed it out so that it won't happen again, how is that overreacting? Plus he know it himself it was rude so he apologized. Some of the knetz comments are disgusting, mostly are so obvious from haters. And some of inetz comments too lol seriously people, you guys always said how knetz love to put down idols' looks and now you're saying this is an overreaction? So hypocrite.

    ReplyDelete
  88. Why do people actually think Sunggyu is ugly? I'm not a fan of Infinite, but I think he's really cute.

    ReplyDelete
  89. I know, but it's gotta be tiring to always be told you are ugly.
    It's sad really, I wonder what their parents think when the members are being called ugly or their looks get looked down on all the time.

    ReplyDelete
  90. u really can't compare girl group to a boy group ....

    girl appearance in Korea is no joke so when u dare to say stuff like that on tv your basically asking for death ...

    ReplyDelete
  91. its a different issue for people who has followed infinite over the years! literally all his career sunggyu's had comments like these.. i mean sure, it's a light joke one time, but imagine getting these "light jokes" all your career.
    also like yeah sure these "fangirls" are getting mad about this "non-issue", so wouldn't the commenters getting mad at these fangirls about this supposed "non-issue" be kind of hypocritical?
    also at comment #4, like man im a raging feminist but as much as people being rude to female idols is an issue that doesn't mean people shouldn't defend male idols as well. like we can do both right? also stop acting like fangirls are the only ones to be mean to female idols, if anything male commenters can be worse. not to mention fangirls are most likely middle schoolers, while netizens i imagine to be older.

    ReplyDelete
  95. Can't those people stop talking about "LOOK" instead of talent? I'm getting tired of all posts that always talk abt this idol is handsome blah blah and this idol is ugly blah blah blah. No surprise PS is mainstream in south korea cause their surrounding always too concern with LOOKs.

    ReplyDelete
  96. I love Jo Woo Jung and I believe he did not mean to say it. If he was merely following the script, is he to blame?

    ReplyDelete
  97. Can't wait for second season. Haikyuu is one of the best sport manga I've ever read.

    ReplyDelete
  98. Sounds like a typical kverialty joke that is getting old.

    ReplyDelete
  99. You are too much for comparing Inspirits as rude as exols

    ReplyDelete
  100. Im not an Infinite fan at all but this treatment towards fans is terrifying. Did the k-fans do something, or are they just angry bc they naturally dislike idols and their fans? Bc I personally understand the anger when people call an already insecure bias ugly, and that doesn't make me happy AT ALL. If it was scripted, I'd just put my anger on the writers instead. The situation would be different depending on who the matter was on, I promise lol

    ReplyDelete
  101. uhm, and Sunggyu did look uncomfortable when jo woo jong said it about the looks, so fans had the right to be upset (not highly overreact, tho).

    ReplyDelete
  102. can't wait for the training camp arc tbh

    ReplyDelete
  103. Not his monolids. Many people in Korea have monolids. They mock him because "his eyes are small".

    ReplyDelete
  104. if people singing w/ his looks, i bet wonbin hyung is the best singer in korea -sunggyu.

    ReplyDelete
  105. 6. [+23, -14] Stupid fangirls obviously think this anchorwoman is some nobody because he's on a variety show and they can talk to him however they want. He's a Korean anchorwoman... who gives a sh*t about this nugu group like INFINITE compared to him? Fuc* off you stupid fans!



    fuck off with the levels shit

    ReplyDelete
  106. 10. [+12, -15] Jo Woo Jong-ssi, I advise that you don't mess with the idols. Even North Korea would be scared of messing with South Korea just because of how scary the fans are.





    I laugh so hard.

    ReplyDelete
  107. Pretty sure Inspirits themselves joke about how ugly he is so..

    ReplyDelete
  108. this is why i love p!nk so much, her songs n her encouragement. fucking perfect. n stupid girl.

    ReplyDelete
  109. The annoying part for me was that this wasn't even during a variety where jokes would have been appropriate, the mc was doing an interview on the participants of Lee Seungchul's collab project song, of which Sunggyu and L took part. What did their looks even have to do with singing? It was a tasteless joke done at the wrong time.

    ReplyDelete
  110. And then Korean boys ask their girlfriends to get PS.

    Tell your friend to get a new boyfriend,or give her boyfriend a big slap on his face

    ReplyDelete
  111. lol, you liked ur own comment? haha

    ReplyDelete
  112. Wtf I didn't even anyone complaining....what is he apologizing for??? And those commenters are probably infinite haters......so many infinite haters in korea nowadays....don't look down on a group who come from a small company please

    ReplyDelete
  113. A nugu group that can hold some overseas solo concerts. What a joke. lol. Dont know their standard of nugu group or not.

    ReplyDelete
  114. It's another whole different situation in the comment section if they group he mocked is Bigbang

    ReplyDelete
  115. If you think they came in order of looks, starting from the least handsome to the most, the guests must be L and Dongwoo, not Sunggyu. You can tell that the MC is joking because they know Sunggyu is good at variety show.

    And dont need to look down your own look just because their fangirl bashed you, because I find the MC's handsome on that pic.

    ReplyDelete
  116. Ah i haven't got round to reading the manga but the anime made me cry like a baby i loved it;; Definitely can't wait for the second season!

    ReplyDelete
  117. I would just like to point out that amongst us international inspirits there are a lot of girl group fans who don't actually care about female idols showing skin, so amongst I-inspirits comment 4's end is kinda flawed when referring to us...

    ReplyDelete
  118. Meanwhile, I'm sick of these knets hating on the fangirls. I don't even think fangirls is the issue here. Obviously the script was a bit mean but Sunggyu handled it nicely. The members themselves have always ranked him last in terms of looks (as a joke) anyways so he's able to laugh it off.

    ReplyDelete
  119. well i've heard comments before that inspirits think he's ugly but handsome at the same time soo

    ReplyDelete
  120. I don't mind watching idols rank themselves by looks within their own group or close friends. But someone not close in real life making fun of their face is not fun watching.

    ReplyDelete
  121. why have you just put down dongwoo in the same way? I get that he's not necessarily your type but many people find him good looking, & as many people have already commented, it's not okay to make comments about people's looks like that

    ReplyDelete
  122. It's fucking rude to talk about someone's looks even if the person is open-mnided about it

    ReplyDelete
  123. I understand both sides. It's hurtful if people attack your faves especially on broadcast but fangirls don't defend their faves in a nice way. I'm sure fangirls insulted him and probably even made death threats.

    ReplyDelete
  124. I don't remember overeacting over this yet I have to read this mean comment addressed to me.


    but i have to state that it's ugly to make fun of someone's face. something that the netizen probably do everyday.

    ReplyDelete
  125. you must give it a try, it becomes more interesting And funny as usual.

    Not only his fans. I know fans from different fandoms that have the "I'm a fan therefore I'm allowed to insult them, make fun of them, etc." mentality and I find them really weird, they're the same people that are bashing others for making fun of their bias' looks.

    ReplyDelete
  127. Inspirits mainly defending tho. they rarely attack.
    but now there are so many people attacking infinite that inspirits be seen as rude when actually normally they are really calm and kind.

    ReplyDelete
  128. I know right! This is so wrong.
    SMH at those people in the comments trying to use "stupid fangirls" as a legitimate reason to justify mocking someone's appearance.... So fucked up. It's never okay to make fun of how someone looks, regardless of the script or any intended jokes. NEVER.

    ReplyDelete
  129. who cares if somebody's a nugu or not, calling people ugly to their faces is not nice.

    ReplyDelete
  130. i bet you haven't seen dongwoo in real life.

    ReplyDelete
  131. I was having fun for reading training camp arc, all the characters are so adorable even the rival too. XD

    ReplyDelete
  132. why must you bring dongwoo?

    ReplyDelete
  133. ikr, just because he was polite and didn't show that his feelings were hurt, it's ok to mock him for his appearance? Is it ok to mock anyone for their appearance, then? You don't see any of these people mocking an idol group's "visuals" who can't sing for their lack of singing ability, why is it ok to mock a singer for his face?

    I'm from another fandom but even I think it's rude as hell of him. This culture of focusing on image/looks only and excluding even talent, it's the ugliest thing of all.

    ReplyDelete
  134. It's lil bit rude if they're not close to each other..Imagine if hyung don who said that..ppl/inspirit will think it's funny. I learn from infinite, dissing each other means that they're close..many inspirit adapt it lol
    I think sunggyu aware that he's not 'typical' handsome and i think charms works more than typical looks

  135. "I'm sure fangirls insulted him and probably even made death threats."
    I'm sorry but have you seen Infinite fans doing that ? No, I don't think so. Most of the fans were complaining that it was rude and useless to say that, and that the person who wrotes the script certainly doesn't think twice before doing this. So please stop saying things when you don't even know. You're just creating stupid rumors.

  136. I'm not an Inspirit but sometimes I wonder if I am smoking the wrong thing or the knets are smoking the wrong thing.

    I personally think Sunggyu is cute and the small eyes make him look like a soulful teddy bear, but apparently being small eyed= automatically ugly in Korea.

  137. Is a bit rude when people do that tho

    ReplyDelete
  138. he apologised only after the fans bitched him out though. I'd be mad if they said something like this about my singers too (Beast).

  139. Aha, now Infinite are nugus?? Myeah... what can I say... if the anchorman said something like this about other very popular groups, they would've gone crazy. But because it is about Infinite isn't such a big deal. Why shouldn't it be? Is it normal to mock someone like this? To make him/her feel so uncomfortable, to make him/her lose his/her self esteem? I really hate this kind of stuff and their obsession with the way you look...

  140. Hopefully Sunggyu wasn't hurt by this ^^

  141. Infinite knows how to handle it because they are using to it. But it's not something people should be used to...

  142. I don't see any fangirl complainting but just a lot of persons complaining about fangirls... ?

  144. As an Inspirit for 3 years, since the end of 2014, critics and bad comments about our group are increasing and even I, who managed to stay quite when something bad happened, started to be angry. It's just to hard to handle it anymore. And I think the fact I'm a Sungjong fan only make it worse.

  145. Even my mother was angry when I told her what happened to Sunggyu

    Hmm... It's still rude. :/ always these 'jokes'... /sigh

    ReplyDelete
  147. well even though it's not really directly but it's obvious means 'ugly'... whether someone is a nugu or not but judging someone looks in negative way even though is scripted or not is kinda rude..

  148. Infinite fangirls are weird

    ReplyDelete
  149. all fangirls are weird

    ReplyDelete
  150. you don't need to see him irl to tell he's ugly

    ReplyDelete
  151. because idols are generally about image, not talent

    ReplyDelete
  152. I'm glad this was made into a big deal. I'm not much of a fan (just of Dongwoo) but I can't stand when celebrities' looks are mentioned so blatantly. It makes things awkward and I can't help but feel for them.

    ReplyDelete
  153. I never understood that. When I first got into kpop and saw all these fans insulting these groups, I was so confused as to whether they actually hated them because some of the stuff they say do not sound like terms of endearment and rather more like a straight up insult.

    ReplyDelete
  154. So what if she's an anchorwoman? Does making a joke of someone's face acceptable?

    ReplyDelete
  155. No we dont!!
    Your just everywhere trying to pick a fight¿¿ are you that desperate for attention poor you really :(

    ReplyDelete
  156. "he" is an anchorman. and i totally agree with your point.

    ReplyDelete
  157. Idk, the Inspirits I've met were either totally cool or totally obsessed. The obsessed ones are weird, making issues from nothing.

    ReplyDelete
  158. I think korean when they hate someone the say to them "nugu" , i know what it means but that what i think..

    ReplyDelete
  159. ouch, ur ugly words reflect the heart!

    ReplyDelete
  160. yeah, i am usually calm too, even when there's L scandal I manage to keep calm.
    I think it's only right if we defend them in the right manner to avoid us be seen as rude.
    but the hard thing is even when i manage to do that, hater will still scream 'you're rude!'
    who's who?

  161. Nate nets have always been so shitty, imagine they themselves being called ugly on national tv i want to know how they'll handle it lmao

  162. Idol or not. Achorman or not. It is rude to make a remark of somebody's appearance regardless.

  163. Honestly I think that his eyes are what gives him more beautiful look. Although I'm not inspirit I love him and I think he's the most pure and innocent idol.

  167. infinite fans are so annoying, first they accuse secret of sajaegi because their bias drop in rank, then they accuse t-ara of manipulating votes because their bias losing big and now they hating on some poor dude for a little joke he made on their bias lmao

    ReplyDelete
  168. i hope everyone who says we're overreacting and it's not a big deal gets put next to suzy/sulli or t.o.p/kang dongwon. i wanna know how they'd feel being told the most and least handsome/beautiful is here.

    ReplyDelete
  169. I didn't watch this yet but the mention of Park Eun Young is enough to make me cringe.. she's always seem unpleasant to me..

    ReplyDelete
  170. to people who say it's okay to joke about things like that, try being called ugly to your face. even though the person say it just as a joke and you managed to laugh it off, it still hurts and haunts your self esteem for a long time.

    it's rude and unnecessary. i don't even see inspirits bashing the anchor, just complaining and saying that he's rude, which is not wrong. they're not the problem.

  171. infinite fandom is by far the worst kpop fandom....they overreact and act like assholes to other girl group fandoms

    i don't see the big deal IF he's talking about order of looks in a group. naturally there would be most n least handsome/pretty ranking in groups like it or not, agree or not. it's not like he call them representative of handsome and ugly idol of South Korea n comparing with other groups, or did he? if so, then he's being rude, but talking bout ranking inside the group itself, seem like a very typical 'joke' in the ent industry regardless of how harsh it seems to be. eh...next time just don't pull any 'jokes' with big names. stay serious n all business. you can probly make such joke with ZE:A. not sure bout how their fans handle it, but they're such good sport with it, to even rank their own handsomeness from most to least, though i imagine Kwanghee n Taeheon would end up having a brawl again on the show itself to fight who gets the last rank n then proclaim they hate each other or they don't know each other or sth. lol.

  173. What? Not big deal??? Are you sure??? Even as a normal person I got hurt when my parent's friend say my sister is prettier than me in front of my face... yeah i was smiling like a fool but i still its hurt my feel as a human!!

    ReplyDelete
  174. and you're non fan so you're not blinded by love? lol
    i guess you care too much

    ReplyDelete
  175. its because he doesnt fit the beauty standard, apparently youre not allowed to find someone handsome if they dont fit it

  176. Uh ? Girl groups ? Wtf

    10. [+12, -15] Jo Woo Jong-ssi, I advise that you don't mess with the idols. Even North Korea would be scared of messing with South Korea just because of how scary the fans are.

    Is it necessary to mention everyone's looks everywhere? It sounds like a very subjective matter like looks says all about a person. It's hitting my nerve - actors are supposed to act, singers are supposed to sing and entertainers are supposed to create pleasant mood in shows, that's what should matter - talent and skills. Of course it helps for someone to look nice - NICE, like they pay attention to their attire, haircut etc. Not that higher cheekbones, V-line and similar nonsense ever made someone a better artist. I'm tired of all the times someone is called a god/goddess when their popularity comes solely from looks and even their own fans clearly say they're aware their bias can't do his/her job well. "But he's so handsome/she's so pretty" - that solves it all. Or does it?
    I won't say names, it's a general observation. I don't even say an overall average but "good looking" person can't have fans. What I mean is this celebrity is in no way a better person than anyone else just because a bunch of people decide to give them divine titles.
    Just a while ago I read a discussion about people being enraged when it came to putting their photos to resume when applying for a job. Just the thought made them feel uncomfortable. Yet many are ready to discriminate artists according to their looks. Why would this case differ from when someone wants to be an accountant?


    I don't think this MC meant it badly, he probably wanted to be funny and it didn't work out.

    ReplyDelete
  183. having confidence and humour is the only way to strive in this world. yeah its rude, but what can we do.
    I realised that by having that confident aura and being able to laugh off any comments made me more stronger. That made me start to really not care, just not as acting, but in reality. I dont feel offended at all too

    ReplyDelete
  184. Other girl groups fans I think you are mistaken them for exo ls. They go on witch hunts when it cones to girl groups

    ReplyDelete
  185. Sunggyu always gets the ugly comments along with Dongwoo. Ita not right and I'm glad sunggyu handled it well but you can see on his face that it hurts him. Knetizen are dumb. How would you feel if someone called you ugly to your face?

    ReplyDelete
  186. I don't get it why would they blamed the fans instead i mean the script is obviously rude like????? And we protect gyu because we know him well. People have been comparing him and putting him down so much just because he's a nice person??? Do you think he'll show it to the public if he's feeling uncomfortable like that? No, instead he'll be professional and just laugh it off. That's not ok

    ReplyDelete
  187. are you me?? omfg
    i have this one friend who like to make joke about my face but i tried to dgaf just laugh it off even tho its actually hurt. but what makes me frustrated is this girl is the most unconfident person ever. well, yes she's basically kinda fat and i'm average (almost skinny). she's so unconfident with her body and keep ranting how she fed up with her own body. i once make a joke of it bcs i'm just too full for her rant and she was mad, like literally mad. and then i threw back the words she jokes about me like "but you but she keep deny-ing that i was wrong smh i seriously this kind of person -_-

    ReplyDelete
  188. Yeah, I know, that's why I said the commenters were overreacting... the whole issue is basically rounded up and then they go calling us fangirls stupid and dissing infinite. I mean, no matter how much more they like the anchorman, in the end sunggyu was the victim, why are they getting riled up over that anchorman apologising? I mean, if sunggyu had demanded an apology or filed a lawsuit or something large scale like that, those comments might appear, but for an appropriate apology like this why are that anchorman's fans acting like this...

    And if it hasn't been clarified already, I'm actually a huge huge inspirit and sunggyu is actually my bias too ehehehe~~~
