1. [+580, -48] Who still likes this has-been????? ㅋ

2. [+554, -18] I remember my Japanese language teacher saying that Japanese fans are super loyal to the point where they will never leave or betray their favorite stars, even if they commit a crime like murder. So Yonsama will probably be with his Japanese fans till the day of his death.

3. [+414, -16] Yonsama really is powerful though... The Japanese didn't care an ounce about Korean stuff before but now Korean cuisine and stuff like kimchi has spread wide and far, and more people are interested in learning Korean. Yonsama's become a bit of a joke now to Koreans but his effect is still going strong because there wouldn't be Hallyu today without him.

4. [+20, -4] Can't believe Yonsama has built an entire life out of being that one character ㅋㅋㅋ

5. [+15, -7] Hul, he looks straight out of the seventies~ are the Japanese into retro stuff like him?

6. [+14, -5] He gives me such greasy vibes when he smiles;;

7. [+11, -0] Yeah, Japanese fans are no joke. Once they like you, they like you.

8. [+11, -2] I wonder what his life would be like if he never shot 'Winter Sonata'... I was a baby when that drama came out and yet people are still going crazy over Yonsama...

9. [+10, -3] Japan still likes him? But then again, I heard that Japanese grandmas don't recognize Arashi but they recognize Bae Yong Joon ㅋㅋ

10. [+7, -2] He may be a has-been to us but you can't ignore the influence he has on Japan
