EXO. If you are a K-Pop fan, you know who they are. Unless you’ve been under a rock, you at least have heard the name.
The internet and social media sites like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Weibo are full of people who hide behind fake accounts on the internet, lurking behind their keyboards trying to bring them down by spreading malicious rumors and hate.
So not cool!
The problem is not just those fans, but also Chinese media outlets such as Sina, who are always trying to shake up the fandom by spreading rumors. Like the latest that say that Tao and / or Lay will be leaving the group.
True EXO-L’s believe in OT10 but sometimes we can’t help ourselves: we get shaken and fearful, especially when the news is coming from what we believe to be a “reliable” media outlet. However, the normally silent SM Entertainment eased our worries by saying that this news is nothing but a pure lie based on marketing. They went further by saying there is no need to question the loyalty the rest of the Chinese members by the fandom.
Then began the personal attack on Lay, this is where k-netizens made my blood boil.To be honest, I rarely pay any attention to them; but when I saw their most recent comments about Lay, I was so ashamed. If you are an EXO-L you should know Lay very well. That man is a living angel, he is not two-faced nor is he a betrayer. His activities in China are supported by the company and by the members. And let’s get serious here, who are we to judge him? We’re no one, we’re just fans, we don’t own him, we don’t control him and we don’t know him. I say good luck to Lay and support him fully.
If you are a Krishan fan and you are jealous because Lay got an opportunity, you need to remember they left. They abandoned not only the fans but also the rest of the group. Lay is loyal: he has stuck around and suffered, if the claims made are true, with the rest. If you think he didn’t deserve this, think again. I think you have only two real choice in this case: the first is get over it and the second is leave the fandom.
The hate continues from within the fandom thanks to a hashtag that has been trending on Twitter by so-called EXO fans, #EXOLWantsChanyeolDead. I can’t even believe that I’m having to write this out, it is so disgusting.
The reason the best anyone can tell, is some fans got insulted by Chanyeol‘s behavior on a radio show whenhe began to tease fellow members Kai and Suho. When EXO guested with SUKIRA with Super Junior‘s Ryeowook, the members played a game something similar to “Of Course” were if you can’t answer back ‘of course”, you lose.
When was Chanyeol’s turn he had to say something to Kai and make him lose the game so he said this: “Would you like to get your skin whiter?” That is where Kai couldn’t answer anything and he lost.
So this was his great sin? Saying something to win a game? Really now? For this you want him dead? Could he have chosen something else to say? Yes, but it was a game and he was supposed to make Kai lose by asking him something he couldn’t answer “of course” to.
If you know EXO, even a little bit you know that every member in EXO teases Kai for his skin color, but that is just a joke. One that even Kai does not appear to be that offended by. If you are one of those people who trended this, you obviously didn’t hear him say that he was actually envious of Kai’s skin color on Sunny’s FM Date. In fact he went so far as to say that he finds it his greatest advantage!
Remember it was also so called fans that sent Chanyeol a printed and bound copy of their fan fictions, so be careful before you pass judgment. Perhaps he was actually given that fanfic anthology and now he knows what his ‘fans’ think he gets up to in his free time. Let me tell you a thing or two about Chanyeol, he is the kindest, sweetest and the most amazing guy that can exist on this planet. I am sure that he doesn’t have an inch of hate in his whole giant body. I always remember all the members saying in the times when thing are the most difficult, he is the one who always tries to make them feel better and make them laugh. Chanyeol is a jokester and always smiling, so who are you to make his beautiful smile go away!
To show support to our Yeollie, EXO-L’s from all over the world started to trend #EXOLLovesChanyeol . I’m glad that so many in this fandom, which already gets so much hate for having immature and ridiculous fans, are finally stepping up and policing our own!
As if one stupid thing wasn’t enough, then people got angry at him when he said to his leader that if he went solo by any chance he would have zero chance of success. Sorry while I laugh in the corner at people’s ridiculous sensitivity. I watched the whole thing and Suho was laughing as well, so why some fans got little touchy with this I don’t really understand. I think you need to look up the definition of the word “game.”
If you are a hater, please keep your hate to yourself, don’t spread it on social media, don’t be stupid enough to even try to stain the image of any EXO members because there are millions EXO-L who will step up to make sure you not only are stopped but that people start to realize that we don’t want to be associated with that kind of behavior. This fandom and this group needs to support and love each other. We’re at a point that if we fail, it will be because we attacked each other until we collapsed from the inside. I am being honest with this article and I am not sorry. Because I love those 10 guys and I will defend them until the day I die.
