I know I shouldn’t, and I know I’ve already said–twice!–that I wouldn’t post any more about this, but I couldn’t resist looking at Netizen Buzz’ more–recent translations of K-netz’ Zico/Seolhyun hate, and they’re hilarious.
They’re definitely something that can be safely ignored–as expected, the hate is becoming more and more fringe-y and disconnected from reality, which means that it’s the same people it always is, and that they will be every bit as effective as they always are.
But again, the comments are just hysterically funny!
In general, I’m amused at people’s objections to the fact that Seolhyun went to Zico’s apartment. Like, oh my God, why would she do that?
Zico’s apartment. Roommates: 0
AOA’s dorm. Roommates: 6, not counting managers
You figure it out.
As for specific comments, here’s a good one:
The thing that was stupid about Zico was that his attempt at trying to survive this scandal by leaving Seolhyun out to dry just improved Seolhyun’s image whereas his own image is trashed now ㅋㅋㅋ
Um, yeah. Well, in all sincerity, I do hope that the haters will latch onto Zico and leave Seolhyun alone, because she’s a normal idol and more vulnerable to this kind of thing than he is. Honestly, though, I think the haters are more into trashing everyone, because they are terrible people.
But acting like this could seriously damage Zico? Ah-ha-ha-ha-ha!
Is his label going to drop him? Oh, fuck NO.
Do his female fans care? Not really–a few apparently were upset to discover that he’s not actually going to marry them, but again, he hasn’t marketed himself that way, so that’s a minority. And they certainly don’t care about yet another stupid fucking netizen hate campaign–I mean, seriously, I’ve pretty much lost count at this point.
But I will NEVER FORGET!
Do his male fans care? Let’s try to look at this from the heterosexual male perspective: Average-looking guy bags super-hot chick.
OK, I had to stop to laugh for a bit. Unless they were planning to marry Seolhyun, men are NOT going to have a problem with this.
Let’s put it this way: Do you ever wonder why the guys in porn usually look pretty average (aside from their dicks), while the women usually look pretty…extraordinary? Do you ever wonder why nerdy guys in comic books always bag Miss Universe?
Or let’s do the flip side: Do you ever wonder why women in romance novels are typically such zeros? Or why the heroines in K-Dramas are usually poor and not very accomplished, while the two guys fighting to marry them are both fabulously wealthy with incredible careers, and handsome as fuck on top of it?
Yeah–the average Korean guy on the street is pumping his fist for Zico. Why? Because he is living the average person’s fantasy.
Let’s put it this way: If you really want to meet a Korean guy in real life and Dynamic Duo comes to you city, go there. There will be tons of Korean guys, and they all love Choiza to death–you know, ugly, old Choiza who is dating pretty, young Sulli (gasp!) who is SO far out of his league it’s just unbelievable!!!!
Why? Because for guys, Choiza and now Zico are living the fucking dream.
Will this hate campaign even hurt Zico’s feelings?
At this point I think his coping strategies are pretty solid.
Funny comment #2:
I remember Seolhyun was crying during her history scandal but that was just an act and then she went to go hang out at Zico’s house
This is maybe even more awesome than the previous comment, because according to FNC’s statement, the primary reason Zico and Seolhyun’s relationship moved forward and she quit saying no is because of all the horrible hate she was getting for her history screw-up.
And Zico was just the guy to help her out and help her put it in perspective, because there is a very dedicated cadre of haters who have been trying to take him down for years, and he has only gotten more popular!
So, yeah, miserable hater, the toxic environment you have created and fostered in the K-Pop scene helped bring these two lovers together. Ironic, isn’t it? It’s almost like, if you have the right mentality, you can make a lotus blossom in a puddle of shit, isn’t it?
Oooh…life lesson…which I’m sure will be ignored, because oh my God these people.
