EXO’s Baekhyun called a ‘betrayer’ by fans on Inkigayo

By  | 

Baekhyun has been called a ‘betrayer’ by fans while fulfilling his hosting duties on SBS’s Inkigayo last Sunday.

It was the EXO member’s first public appearance after his agency confirmed his relationship with Girls’ Generation’s Taeyeon on June 19.

According to the Korea Herald, many fans chanted ‘betrayer’  while Baekhyun was recording for the music show.

Baekhyun remained calm despite the chants and proceeded with his job as MC.

Netizens commented, “Baekhyun looked a bit frozen”, “Baekhyun didn’t talk about Taeyeon”, “He looked tangled”, and more.

20140623001058_0Taeyeon has also been receiving backlash from the public after the announcement.

Many fans have left comments such as “I don’t trust Taeyeon anymore” and “I don’t like her anymore” on her Instagram photos.

The Girls’ Generation singer responded to the comments by apologising to fans and for not being more ‘careful’. She deleted her comments yesterday.

“You were really surprise and hurt because of me today, right?”

“I’m really sorry that I made you feel things you didn’t need to feel and the article happened because I wasn’t more careful,

“I’m really sorry I hurt you.” Taeyeon commented on a photo of an Oreo she posted.

Both Girls’ Generation and EXO fans have left hurtful comments on both of the idols’ social media pages after it was revealed the two had been dating for four months.

Taeyeon, who has been apologetic over the news report, did her best to sympathise with fans.

“I think that you will be feeling great disappointment, anger, hate, frustration and emptiness and other emotions,”

“I can accept all of that and I want to apologise.

“I don’t know if it’s just me thinking this but it means that you liked me that much, and supported me and works that much for me.”

    Calling your idol a betrayer is pretty immature and stupid. Honestly, you don’t see American idols’ fans calling them betrayers when they happen to get a girlfriend. They can’t help falling in love and I’m pretty sure that they aren’t the happiest of people at the moment when they have fans that are turning against them.

    Honestly, you shouldn’t just judge the korean fans, because there are some things that the Korean fans do that the international ones can’t. Sure, the idols have lives, deserve to love, and date. It’s because Korean fans spend their entire LIVES dedicated to their groups. The Korean fans put time, money, and effort to create fanchants, posters, and merchandise for their idols. They wholly trust and have complete faith in their idols, and even though they can get carried away (the saesangs), they truly care and worry for their idols. When Kris left, the fanbase started falling apart. Fans started taking sides. Now that Baekhyun is dating Taeyeon when he explicitly said he wasn’t dating until 35, a lot of fans were shocked, because he betrayed their trust. It also wasn’t the right time to announce that they were dating because it caused an even bigger rift in the fanbase. It might just be a publicity stunt, to get people’s mind off of Kris, or to ruin his success in China. I don’t think that you should just tell other fans/former fans to piss off for what they feel.

    Their fans are judging them for dating, including you! Baekhyun is not ruining Exo, but the fans are. They hate on the two idols saying things like “Im not your fan anymore” just because they experienced love.

    Betrayer?? guys were just a fan not there mother/girlfriends… just let them do whatever they want..

  18. yo momma jokes are funny

    June 26, 2014 at 1:34 am

    Reality check, we never had a chance with either of them. They are entertainers/idols, not your personal friend. And even if they are someone important, you don’t do that kind of shady shit to them.

    Okay look Idk if everyone’s still sad that Kris left or because of this or because of both, but come on ppl be a little more machure. You guys call yrselves fans but fans support theyre idol no matter what and honestly I think theyre a cute couple and as long as my exo babies are happy im happy. Im pretty sure if you all were in Taeyeon position youd want the hateful comments to stop too

    Betrayer?! Seriously! Are those fans stupid or what???
    Baekhyun isn’t yours! They are idols, idols are human too, they not your prisoners! Just let them for god sake!

    It’s not PROTECTING its CONTROLLING. And besides I think Taeyeon and Baekhyun are not being STUPID, I think fans like you are the STUPID ones, no the correct term would be IDIOTIC and IMMATURE. And ‘NO ONE IS JUDGING THEM FOR DATING’? Are you saying that saying that he is ruining EXO is not JUDGING?

    June 25, 2014 at 7:07 pm

    Honestly, ‘OUR’ Idols are humans too like us, despite the faces they show on the screen or stage they can also ACTUALLY FEEL the same emotions we feel everyday they are not PUPPETS that we CONTROL!

    They’re bunch of people who wants to fulfill their dreams JUST LIKE US. Why can’t you people just accept the fact that they’re together and support their relationship?

    Just like the others who was happy or just accepted it, and believe me I love them as much as you guys do, I admit it I was sad and disappointed but I accepted it, it took a while but i never said hateful words to my idols just because they’re together but I guess no matter how many times people would remind these BASHERS that these people are also humans, there is only three words that can describe them and that is IDIOTIC IMMATURE BRATS. I’m sorry for the straight forward description but it’s true…

    If you call yourself a real fan of SNSD, and Exo, then act like one. Just because they are idols, it doesn’t make them any less then a human. Hello people, they have feelings, they can fall in love they can chose if they want everyone all up on their bussiness or not. So what Baekhyun and Taeyeon hid their relationship if they told everyone right away, there would still be pathetic haters. Fan girls would start talking mad shit its still the same sooner or later. Why won’t we all stfu, and stop the hate. One second your their number one fan and main support another your bashing cause they found love. Hypocrites. Go learn some loyalty something us human don’t have, and that’s sad. Real fans wouldn’t turn their back on the idol they support. You’re not being real that’s just fake. So keep calm and stop hating, cause no matter how much you hate Baekhyun or anyother idols for have a fandom for aint gonna be yours. Have a good day, and enjoy. Peace out.

    Some of these so called “fans” just need to grow up, and stop thinking they’re victims of the whole situation. In the end, the only people who’s hurt are not them but actually Taeyeon and Baekhyun, and yet they chose to accept the hurtful comments that people have said to them. Why can’t people just put themselves in their shoes? Not only is it hard to date secretly when you’re in the public eye, but when you’re out, their relationship will be under everyone’s eyes and criticism. So dang, they get criticized just for wanting to have a little bit of normalcy and love in their life. I think it’s good that their relationship is out so hopefully in the future it’s more acceptablr among such “fans”.

    And who are you to judge those sasaeng fans? “Go die somewhere”? You are just as immature. Exo doesn’t want people reacting like this no matter what side they’re on. Do baekhyun a real favor and Calm down.

    that is not right to call him that just because he is in love with someone. Not him or Kris who stay true to themselves.

    June 25, 2014 at 12:34 am

    No one is freaking hating them for falling in love. Why are international fans so stupid? Don’t know the real issue, still want to talk. Look at the time all these occurred? When exo came back. Suho and the other members worked so damn hard for 2 people to ruin it.

    June 24, 2014 at 11:19 pm

    I mean come on guys.

    Are they serious? Those people who call themselves ‘fans’.. This is not what real fans should should do.. As if stalking them all around isn’t enough? Putting surveillance cameras in their hotel rooms? Baekhyun did nothing wrong, why are they calling him a ‘traitor’? All he did was date the person he loves. Is that wrong? If that is wrong then what about those people who claim to be a real fan but just cause mental and physical distress to EXO? What they’re doing is 100 times worse. Look at BEAST’S fandom, their fans booked out a whole movie theatre just for their comeback, even showering them with love by making banners and posters and buying their CDs and supporting them. That is what a real fan is. I’m not trying to compare fandoms but seriously, those girls claiming that they love EXO is talking crap.. If they truly love them, why do all that shit?
