Jang Wonyoung (IVE) is at present the outstanding instance of a star affected by on-line malice.
As of the present second, Jang Wonyoung is a outstanding instance of a sufferer affected by the surplus of malicious feedback on-line. Following the saddening passing of the late Sulli and Goo Hara in 2019, a wave of denouncement of this “culture” passed off. Yet, it seems that malicious commenting is on the rise once again after three years and is heading towards Jang Wonyoung, with the video “eating strawberry with two hands.”
These behaviors on-line are problematic firstly as a result of the IVE member herself was solely an 18-year-old. At such a younger age, the idol has endured streams of rumors and malicious feedback on her SNS, most of which focused her “exaggerated” facial expressions on stage or broadcast.
As a public determine and knowledgeable singer, constructive criticism on related issues equivalent to singing and dancing might be useful to the idol herself. Yet, the continued downside is that these criticisms are largely ill-intended (they’re given not for the advantage of the singer.) With the earlier unlucky incidents in thoughts, the problem turns into far more alarming.
Previously, feedback have been solely bounded on portal websites. However, When the remark sections on portal websites closed down, the malice and its posters have moved to YouTube the place it may be unfold far and extensive. Generated by haters and blown up by “cyber-bullying” channels, the malice and rumors are being conveyed to quite a few website customers as if they’re actual and solely worsen over time.
Jang Wonyoung was talked about as a outstanding instance, however actually, different woman group members aren’t free from this ongoing follow. While companies are attempting to fight these wave of unwell intention and defend their artists with precise authorized measures, this “culture of malicious commenting” is just not simply erased. This reveals that particular person self-reflection on-line won’t work with out strict and functioning regulatory measures.
In the tip, an consumer should remember the fact that a easy, “mindless” joke to them might be a “don’t ask violence” to another person. And when the sufferer is a celeb determine, the violence will increase exponentially.
