Former Baby V.O.X members Kan Mi Youn and Shim Eun Jin, recently appeared as a guest on MBC’s Radio Star. They both opened up about their past experiences with anti-fans.
Kan Mi Youn talked about how in 1999 it was rumored that she was dating H.O.T member Moon Hee Joon and the negative effects that followed that dating scandal. She shared that she received death threats from H.O.T fans of pictures of herself where her eyes gouged out and letters filled with box cutter blades. The negative effects got so bad that at one point it even made it on the 9 o’clock news.
“There were some people who put in rusty knife blades in envelopes in a way that when you opened it up, you would get hurt. They even sent me boxed sets of these blades. I guess they wanted me to use it? We ended up using that in the office,” revealed Kan Mi Youn, “And then there was someone who wrote a letter in blood saying, ‘Let’s go to hell together. I’ll go with you so you won’t be lonely’.”
Shim Eun Jin also shared her anti-fan experiences and talked about how some people actually physically attacked her.
“They meant to hurt Mi Youn, but Mi Youn never got hurt. Instead the members around her always did,” said Shim Eun Jin, referring to the times raw eggs were thrown at the group or anti-fans pulling their managers’ hair.
“If they threw rocks or something, the other members always got hit, so I was so sorry afterwards,” said Kan Mi Youn.
Shim Eun Jin later revealed that Baby V.O.X’s male fans often times protected the group from the H.O.T fans.
