K-pop fans took to an online community forum recently to talk about the photographs posted by an infamous fan site known as Naejangtang (내장탕).
For those wondering, Naejangtang (meaning intestinal soup) has been active since 2015. They’re widely known for taking and sharing unfiltered, candid images of K-pop idols.
As seen in the images above, idols from several groups including MONSTA X, CLC, Momoland, VIXX and even Hyuna have been victimised by this blogger. On the contrary, there were also some who commented that despite the “rawness”, a few idols like Astro’s Cha Eunwoo and Taeyong from NCT still looked stunning.
Feel free to read some the comments shared by K-netizens here:
- “OMG, Cha Eunwoo and Taeyong certainly survived these people.”
- “They are the only ones who escaped this blogger’s atrocities…”
- “Everybody’s a victim, except for Cha Eunwoo and Taeyong”
- “I don’t appreciate how these photos were usually taken when the idols were squinting because of the sun.”
- “They are all pretty and good-looking, these photos just don’t do justice.”
- “Purposely selecting the weird ones? Tsk,”
- “LOL, they are under the name ‘realistic’ but trust me they all look good in real life.”
- “Taeyong looks like a doll.”
- “I find Eunkwang so cute tho!”
- “This post has failed because of Cha Eunwoo.”
- “They say Naejangtang wasn’t doing this on purpose! They really didn’t know how to edit, that’s what they claimed.”
- “Word has it that Naejangtang got better at editing.”
In the comments section, a netizen also shared a link to a different post containing some better quality pictures taken by the aforesaid fan site admin. Some of the idols featured include members of Weki Meki, Pentagon, Golden Child, BTS, and more. Check out some of our faves here:
We really like how these photos show various sides of these artistes that we’ve never seen previously. What about you guys?
