1. [+963, -266] Preventing more spread of the virus is important... but this concert is such a waste of water, too. Everyone is suffering from droughts, I wish he'd find a wiser way to throw concerts like this.

2. [+320, -37] He's getting crap for spending 300 tons of water a day but people don't realize that waterparks spend 12,000 tons a day
- [+32] People who comment stuff like this don't even know how waterparks work. They filter their water and reuse it over and over again. Concerts like Psy's where you just spray it once and forget about it have no system in place to filter it and reuse it again. These two things are not comparable at all. One is single-use, one is recycling water.

3. [+338, -158] The entire world is drying out and suffering from droughts but Psy is out here wasting hundreds of tons of water while the grandmas and grandpas out there in the farm fields are crying tears over their drying crops.

4. [+44, -6] This is just not the time or place to be holding concerts like this. These concerts will be just as fun without all the water wastage.

5. [+25, -1] If you guys are going to give Psy crap for this, then shut down all the waterparks this summer too

1. [+281, -55] Why is he continuing with this crazy act?'

2. [+175, -43] Containing the spread is an issue but this is such a waste of water when we're already suffering from a lack of rain as it is

3. [+172, -76] This is so stupid to me. Why aren't the authorities going after pools and waterparks then?

4. [+118, -25] I just don't see the point in wasting so much water over a concert when farm lands are drying out. So many singers hold concerts just fine without using any water.

5. [+58, -25] Our crops are splitting down the middle because of the drought... and yet he's out here wasting it all

1. [+3,860, -104] Just hold the concerts on sonagi days

2. [+3,507, -265] Probably best not to do something that so many people are taking offense to

3. [+2,821, -111] The authorities should just tell him outright to stop holding these concerts ㅋ

4. [+376, -48] A concert that wastes hundreds of tons of water in a drought should not be allowed

5. [+373, -38] No more wet concerts like this starting next year. I'm not a strict water conserver myself but we're not a country that can afford to waste water like this

6. [+337, -8] The quarantine authorities have every right to make a warning like this. They're doing their jobs.

7. [+290, -17] Just don't do things that you aren't supposed to do

8. [+260, -19] Is there a reason to be spraying water like this? We are still suffering from a lot of cases, we should try and be more careful than this

9. [+254, -16] Our country is going to suffer from a severe water shortage in a few decades. He should at least be trying to cut back on these concerts for the sake of his descendants.

10. [+228, -14] Waterparks make money off of having water at their facilities. Psy can make money just fine with just his singing and not these water sprays. It's not a fair comparison. He should just listen to the people suffering from droughts and just stop the water spraying.
