Remember the YouTuber who aired his thoughts on the real reason “Running Man” won’t be recruiting a new member to replace Lee Kwang Soo?
The Korean reporter, Lee Jin Ho, has been experiencing the wrath of fans of one of the members, Song Ji Hyo, over a statement he shared on his YouTube video.
In the video, Jin Ho touched on the backlash that both Yang Se Chan, and most notably, Jeon So Min have been facing ever since they joined the show. For those curious, the duo have been regular cast members of the popular variety show since April 2017.
As pointed out by him, die-hard fans of Ji Hyo were actually the ones responsible for a lot of hate that was directed towards So Min. This eventually drew the ire of the actress’ loyal supporters. He further revealed that at one point, the hate got so bad, even her family and friends were also subjected to hate comments and DM’s.
The YouTube clip has since gone viral, prompting the fans to bombard the video with numerous negative comments. A few netizens also thought that Lee Jin Ho might be working as a reporter for Garo Sero Institute. Others have also taken to Twitter to urge the public to report the video.
On the contrary, we can also see a few “Running Man” who clapped back at the trolls over their toxic behaviour. To quote one commentator, “If you don’t like that particular member, just watch another show. Why waste your life throwing hate and watching the show?”
The video in question is still available on YouTube, and has received up to 839 dislikes from the public at the time of writing (Thursday, 10th June). Watch it here:
