1. [+2,966, -674] Freezia has admitted her fault and not only apologized but halted her promotions. Do people not think that they have gone too far? I don't understand why there's a need to go this far with criticizing her.. I feel so bad for her. The hate needs to stop.

2. [+1,140, -88] I have a feeling that Kang Yewon was the one pulling all the strings behind her but it left Song Jia out to dry when it came time to apologize and deal with the fall out. Kang Yewon needs to step up as CEO and take responsibility as well as apologize for all of this. I think all of this is too big of a consequence for such a young woman to take on all by herself, even if she did do wrong.

3. [+550, -139] Scammers need to pay the price of their crime. You let one slide and you basically have to let everyone slide.

4. [+229, -15] Freezia did not do anything right but I feel like people are definitely jumping on this opportunity to try and send someone out of this earth. What is there to be so upset over... She has halted her promos, enough is enough.

5. [+183, -28] She apologized and promised to reflect, people need to stop now. She's still young... we all have made mistakes in our lives.

6. [+149, -13] I honestly don't care whether she wears fakes or whatever. This was never something to be criticized this harshly over. However! She does deserve to be hated on more for calling kimchi 'pao cai'. You'd have to be seriously insane to do something like this.

7. [+125, -2] But you have to admit that celebrities are getting more brazen with their lies and scams on TV. They all claim to be sorry and apologize but only take three months for reflection, maybe six on the long end, and come straight back to selling their fake lives... rinse and repeat...

8. [+89, -5] The media also needs to stop writing articles about her. This has been enough. Putting out any further news is basically being an accomplice to crime now.

9. [+97, -14] Just make her answer one thing: is it kimchi or pao cai?

10. [+85, -8] She did commit wrongs but I don't think it's fair to exile her over this. There are so many celebrities who have faked worse like actual education credentials. Why the double standards?

11. [+84, -9] She's the one who chose to scam people into thinking she's a golden spoon. Why push the blame onto the people who exposed her lies?

12. [+67, -5] Enough is enough. Everyone is crossing the line. 

13. [+65, -3] People are only witch hunting her because they either were jealous of her, idolized her, or related to her and are mad about it. She was never some national athlete, why call her a national embarrassment? I wish people would uphold the same standards they hold celebrities to onto their own lives and just mind their own businesses. This whole thing could've just ended with some show offy girl gaining some fame and losing it after some embarrassment but people are crossing the line by standing her up on the town guillotine to suffer their emotional punishments. 

14. [+43, -13] I don't get the point of this witch hunt. It's not like what she did was some huge crime against our society. Everyone is really beating down on this young woman and enough is enough.

15. [+34, -4] She's still young, I wish people would stop. As the mother of a daughter of similar age, I'm worried for her. Will people only stop after she dies? You may not have guns or knives but your words are easily as effective. I'm sure she's reflecting now so just stop.

16. [+32, -5] Her family being doxxed was only a matter of time. But you have to wonder just how disappointed and upset people are by her scams that they're going this far with her. At the end of the day, she's the one who provided all of the ammo.

17. [+25, -0] Her pao cai scandal is the most problematic scandal but everyone is so focused on the fakes

18. [+25, -1] She never should've engaged with any comments claiming her dad was a dentist. She engaged with the comments like, "How'd you find out about my dad's profession?" so no wonder she's a laughing stock right now... And how did her father ever have the confidence to show his face on her vlogs? You can tell just by his manner of speech that he's never read a book in his life and yet she tried to pass him off as some dentist? Some golden spoon princess??

19. [+23, -3] Everyone keeps saying "she apologized" but she shut her mouth about the pao cai scandal, so where is the apology? I don't care about her fakes, I'm mad about her pao cai subtitle, and she has yet to mention a thing about it.

20. [+20, -1] I am against criticisms against her family. However, she made her money off of public attention so she needs to deal with public criticism as a package deal.

1. [+4,372, -365] Who cares if she waited for the payout, why is this worth hating on? I'd wait to quit until after I got paid too ㅡㅡ

2. [+1,741, -101] Well duh, of course she should wait to get paid. Do you all quit before getting your pay?

3. [+818, -231] Ah... she's daebak until the end... ㅡㅡ

4. [+148, -17] So when you all quit, you just leave before getting your pay? ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ Just reaching for anything to hate on her at this point

5. [+79, -4] Well isn't it common sense to wait to get paid before you quit? What kind of idiot quits before their pay? 

6. [+80, -11] She may have done wrong but she still deserves to put food on her table. I don't think it's fair to accuse her of things like this.

7. [+68, -9] Way too much attack on one person, something bad is going to happen... everyone needs to stop...

8. [+64, -10] Well she worked for that pay, she deserves to get it. It's not like all of you quit and don't expect your company to pay you for your work. It's really cruel to expect otherwise of her.

9. [+57, -11] When will this end? After she dies? Enough is enough... she already posted an apology. If you guys keep going after the apology, how do you expect her to breathe?

10. [+43, -7] But duh??? ㅋㅋㅋㅋ She may have done wrong but she still deserves to take what she's owed ㅋㅋㅋㅋ especially when her adsense payment is probably like 80 million won. You guys would pass that money up?? ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ What a ridiculous article
