Crayon Pop may be the hottest artist of the summer, but it looks like their IlBe controversy has yet to leave them completely.


The internet shopping mall 'Auction' recently recruited the girls to be the face of the site, but after the girls released their CF, the site has been experiencing a mass exodus of users.


The girls, after using various phrases used on the controversial site, and after their CEO pretty much admitted he was a registered member, have been called 'Ilbe-yon-pop'. After Crayon Pop released their CF, a torrent of complaints flooded the customer service board. The term 'Leaving Auction' started taking the top spots for search terms on portals, and a movement to stop using the site started up.

The movement spread over to Twitter, with users commenting, "As soon as I heard, I left. I don't want to use my money for a company who decides to use idols who are controversial because of Ilbe", and "I was watching cable TV and felt disappointed because Auction CFs with Crayon Pop kept coming up. They're noisy people with no tact... I'm leaving Auction".




Another netizen displayed a screenshot of a reply they'd received from Auction after complaining. The reply read, "First, we are very thankful for your concerns for Auction. We chose Crayon Pop as Auction's models because we wanted to relay our fresh and groundbreaking service and product to our customers, and we wanted to try that groundbreaking tendency for our mobile app, as well. We already know that they have a negative image because of their recent IlBe controversy, but please understand that we have taken their optimistic image to communicate with their fans with better music and performance."


Auction stated, "The mail that the customer center sent is not Auction's official stance. We picked them purely out of a marketing point of view because they became a hot issue this summer, and their dance and performance were creative. We will be taking into account the customers' various opinions on this matter."

First thing is first, read the link this is about the "controversy"

http://www.allkpop.com/article/2013/06/crayon-pop-and-ceo-deny-being-affiliated-with-online-community-ilbe-after-controversial-tweets

Secondly, Most Netizens not just K-Netizens tend to be the trash of the internet and look to start a flame war over the most retarded shit. To me the girl's of Crayon Pop are being targeted by a bunch of people over a phrase that was uttered in the wrong context and shit is hitting the fan much like that of Hyosung's "controversy", it is unfortunate really that most of humanity has devolved into a bunch of classless neanderthal ingrates that only get joy out spreading hate on people. Crayon Pop has garnered an abnormal amount of flak for something so minute but so over-analyzed. Nobody takes anything with a "grain of salt" anymore and are really quick to jump on the whole you just offended me band-wagon.

In my eyes, Crayon Pop did no wrong, The CEO of Chrome Entertainment is also in no wrong, I'd have done the same thing that he has done and you'd be damn sure that I would stick up for the girls.

There is far too much butt-hurt in this world and humanity for the most part still needs to learn how to chill.

For all the people wondering, basically there's a korean site called "Ilbe" (which means something close to "junky" or "trashy") and apparently it's really shady or something. Right after Bar Bar Bar came out, their CEO basically admitted he had an active account on Ilbe so now everyone's getting their panties in a wad about it and blaming it on Crayon Pop. And since people have remembered it all of a sudden and Crayon Pop is the new ambassador of this site, it caused many to leave.
You're welcome.

Can people at least TRY to understand what it's all about before commenting. Don't tell me you're all too stupid to understand that when the CEO of a company does something wrong, THE WHOLE COMPANY will suffer from it?

people are idiots. the ceo already explained that he has accounts on most big korean sites to gather information about what is written about his adepts.

Koreans seem to get butthurt abt just about anything when it comes to kpop

I wonder how much of it is about the bad things on the website, and how much of it is about certain netizens trying to punish people that may disagree with them.

Everyone absolutely needs to chill out and realize that the girls absolutely wouldn't really mean the things that they have said most recently.  It's not like they're hating on anyone or anything like that

I can't believe there is controvery over the Ilbe thing. After reading about it, I don't feel like they did anything wrong. People who don't like Crayon Pop are blowing it out of proportion.
