The IU-Eunhyuk photo controversy is taking the K-pop fandom by storm. Netizens are rallying behind two blocs to either demand the truth behind IU’s relationship with Eunhyuk, or protect IU and Eunhyuk from malicious rumours.
The “I-Jinyo” (translation: We Demand the Truth from IU) bloc was formed to not only clarify IU’s relationship with Eunhyuk, but also seek explanations behind IU’s clothing in the photo and whether she is living together with Eunhyuk. IU was spotted in pajamas in the photo. There are currently six online communities, all with the same name “I-Jinyo” and all carry the same purpose.
On the other hand, netizens who stood to protect IU and Eunhyuk from baseless rumours are forming “I-MitSa” (People Who Believe in IU). Its creators stated, “We want to protect not only IU but also Super Junior’s Eunhyuk, who is also being harmed from this incidient.” Members of the cafe are actively refuting all rumours involving the two artists.
Creators of “I-MitSa” further stated that at the IU-Eunhyuk controversy draws to an end, they will either delete the cafe or rally for a different celebrity who is suffering from false rumours.
Earlier, IU’s agency Loen Entertainment has released a statement after the photo incident; on the contrary SM Entertainment refused to comment on that matter.
