…the matter quickly stirred up a dialogue. Koreans had been upset on behalf of the employees as they felt that the joke crossed the road.
- “I know that he didn’t have malicious intent. I hope he can be more careful in the future…”
- “It doesn’t seem like he’s power tripping, but I think I know why celebrities catch the celebrity disease… It’s right for the manager to do this for him if he’s in the middle of a live stream, but if this becomes taken for granted and he doesn’t know how to be grateful, then he’s gotten arrogant.”
- “It’s not the problem of if he asked them to bring it over or if they just brought it over anyway, but it’s that their relationship has subtle nuances of a hierarchy no matter how close they are, so it’s just so unlikeable that he’s basically beating around the bush to say that if I ask them to bring something over, they’ll do it. If, at your workplace, your superior says something like oh, I want to drink orange juice, then everyone will be on their toes. It’s only right for him to have asked politely. There’s no need for him to have shown this in front of the fans.”
- “Huh, you think this is cute and funny? It’s just so impolite.”
- “It’s a joke played by a gab (the one with more power) to an eul (subjugated)… If this happened to me too, I don’t think I could say anything good.”
- “Did he start to think like this since he has so many people around him who take care of him? But anyway, it doesn’t mean that all idols are like him in the video.”
- “If he just said thank you…”
- “If there was more of a nuance where he said thank you for bringing it over, things wouldn’t have gotten to this point…”
- “If he wanted juice, he should’ve respectfully asked, no matter how close they are.”
- “Seems like this is what they call celebrity disease. As an office worker, I feel so bad.”
While some followers argue that he appears to be near his employees, others really feel that there’s nonetheless a line that can not be crossed. With social hierarchy and power-tripping changing into a large concern in Korean society and the idol business, many really feel he ought to have been cautious. Cre.Ker Entertainment has not spoken on the topic.
