In the wise words of Taylor Swift, “And the haters gonna hate, hate, hate, hate, hate”.
EXO (엑소) member Park Chanyeol (박찬열) posted a long letter on his Instagram on Wednesday (15th June) to tell off his “haters”.
It’s uncertain what kind of hate he has been receiving lately, but it’s pretty obvious that he is not happy with some of the comments that netizens have left on his social media page. We think that fans are unhappy because the young idol followed and liked Taeyeon’s Instagram lately.
Read Chanyeol’s full letter below (translation):
“There were many people who wanted to hear my songs so I sang them diligently and uploaded my work. To those who said that this is a ‘Lovestagram’ (a term used by Koreans when a couple shares similar posts at the same time, fans are referring to Taeyeon) and whatnot, just how messed up are you to only think that way.
I’m just living doing what I want to do so if you can’t stand that then don’t visit my Instagram.
While I’m at it, in regards to following Taeyeon, people said she appeared in a clip so I wanted to see for myself but I pressed ‘like’ by accident. I thought it might look weird if I just liked it so that’s why I followed her. Then you all kept complaining, so I unfollowed her afterwards. Also, I didn’t go to the Seoul Jazz Festival with her; I just met her there.
I took down ‘Melody for You’ because I wasn’t satisfied with it and intended to re-upload it later. I don’t have a private account so (haters) please stop confusing my fans with all these rumours.
(To the haters) Don’t visit my Instagram anymore. I don’t care whether social media is a waste of your life or whatever because it’s my own way of happily and enjoyably communicating with people.”
Sometimes, K-Pop fans and netizens just need to learn how to chill because celebrities are humans too.
