Fans wars are, unfortunately, a permanent addition to K-Pop. There are fan clubs that get along very well, and then there are those that are constantly fighting. Our K-Pop idols know about it very well and 2PM‘s Taecyeon is one of the latest artists to try to stop the useless fights.
Taecyeon noticed that there is something serious going on between Hottests and Angels (Teen Top fans) and tweeted, “Whether you are a Hottest or a Angel, let’s stop~ As your oppas are important to you, our fans are important to us~ In the time you insult each other and tear at each other, look at oppas faces once more and think of yourself as buddah, and let it pass~ Life is too short even when you look at pretty things, right?”
핫티든 엔젤이든 고만하자~ 각자 오빠들 중요하듯이 우리한테도 팬들 중요하니까~ 서로 흉보고 헐뜯는 시간에 오빠 얼굴을 한번더보고 내가 보살이다 생각하면서 지나가자~ 아름다운것만보는것으로도 인생은 짧잖니?

What made Taecyeon need to speak up is the reaction of some Angels and Hottests to Jun.K‘s previous tweets where he talked about chart manipulation. Even though the tweet was quickly deleted, some fans took it as an attack on Teen Top who won over 2PM on “Music Bank” that day. Nothing has been confirmed, and neither of the sides has proof, but it was enough to make the fans start attacking each other and make Taecyeon angry enough to tweet about it.
2PM is one of the few groups that have spoken to their fans about their behavior before, during the Jay Park departure, so it’s almost no surprise that Taecyeon would speak up. What do you think? Do you think that the fans are out of hand? Do you think fan wars are justified? Let us know in the comments!
