One of the standout performers from last week's episode of SBS's audition program 'K-Pop Star 3', Kim Eun Joo, is in hot water after many netizens claimed that she had an unsavory past, according to a new report from Sports World.



According to an anonymous commenter who claimed to be Kim Eun Joo's classmate, she had been forced to transfer to another school the previous year after being part of a bullying clique and engaging in hitting fellow students and stealing money, among other allegations.


Her anti-cafe is home to over 3,800 netizens and many have spoken out demanding her removal from the program. SBS has yet to respond to these allegations, with the latest episode of 'K-Pop Star 3' passing without a mention.


Do you think she should remain on the program?

    starting an anti fan page with the intention of trying to ruin her career is bulling ... so what does that make them? So what if she did do all those things? people when adolescent can be cruel but not every child that bullies (and it's usually insecure/hurt people that bully) grow up to remain one. So I beat up a girl in my school once and i felt bad about it even now but did that mean i grew up to carry on like that no! If it was true i'm sure the victims would reveal their names. i'm sure they'd be a school record of complaints. but even so it's a separate issue. If she behaved like that as an adult in her chosen profession she won't last 5 minutes. I don't particularly like her but i don't believe two wrongs make a right so back off. ;

    3800 people? Don't they have other stuff to be doing or something... Also, are they stupid or something? There's no proof, so they're basically just making up crap and then hating on this random girl who got into an audition program. This is just like the Jennie Kim thing a while back; there was NO proof of her ever bullying anybody and because of a jealous rumor started by one girl who had Jennie sign her yearbook, she got so much hate from so many netizens around the world... Smh

    So let me get this straight...
    If I want to take down a celebrity, all I have to do is anonymously post acusations, make up BS pics and claim they are "proof" and get some other morons to make up fake names and do the same? ;
    Are you people seriously this stupid? I know it's not a cultural trait because I know far too many Koreans who actually are intelligent for that to be the case. I'm thinking that it's a conglomeration of really stupid people who have found a way to bully people they don't like by lying. ;
    It's sickening. Show your proof and file charges or STFU. ;
    Or you can keep going and become my entertainment. I'm hoping you keep going. I like taking bullies on and the bigger you are the better it is for me. ;

    Proof? We don't needs no stinkin proof in the court of public opinion. We says she guilty then she guity. I mean why else would someone who can't even name themselves make a claim that can't be refuted by the person accused if it wasn't true, right? ;
    All this "anti-cafe" shows me is that there are 3,800 judgemental morons who have not one clue what justice is. So they're going to "get" someone who hasn't even been proven a bully, by being bullies. ;
    I can't stand bullies, but I'm going to make DAMN sure that I know that someone IS one before I do anything. ;
    Someone needs to smack some sense into these morons. ;

    And what if this bully really learnt her lesson and has changed?

    You are essentially creating a group to hate a person who has changed for the better

    and that why there are hoes and scrubs on your tv. chris brown who hits women, rihanna who bullys a girl on instagram whos a fan of hers, justin bieber who starts fights and vandalises property in australia. hell america cant even stand up for themselves when the cops kill people not counting the blacks who go on a "riot" about mike brown when their real objective is to steal shit.

    and even if there only were black people stealing it's still racist because they weren't stealing because they're black, they're stealing because the opportunity arose.

    @intricate ? did i say black people steal crap because they are black? no. i said black people are stealing shit while making a fuss about mike brown as an excuse. i dont even know how to took it as racist. you know there is such thing as a protest while not vandalising property right? why the fuck would you break stores when normal people are working their ass off only to be broken down by people who are rioting. even mike browns parents said stop rioting yet it still persists so its just called looting while making the blame abouot mike brown. and next time look up the word racist before you make stupid remarks this is what racist means. a person who believes that a particular race is superior to another when did i say a particular race was better than the other?

    @K4LLS it shouldn't matter whether or not they are black, including that detail was racist and unnecessary.

    @K4LLS let me rephrase your unfortunate remark for you, instead of '... not counting the blacks who go on a "riot" about mike brown when their real objective is to steal shit. ' you could've said, '... not counting the people who go on a "riot" about mike brown when their real objective is to steal shit.'. Your mention of "blacks" serves no purpose other than highlighting a group of people based on the color of their skin.

    Including the word "blacks" was racist. But that doesn't mean you are a racist. It just means you said something that was racist.. it happens to the best of us, as we've been raised in a racist culture.

    @K4LLS specifying a group of people based on the color of their skin is racist, whether meant well or not.

    @K4LLS if you use the word as a descriptive term to, for example, identify a person based on appearance it's not racist, such as when you are looking for your friend and you have to describe what he looks like. If you use the word black to ascribe certain traits that have no relation to their appearance it's racist, such as your example of the Ferguson riots. Not all those who plundered were blacks, and certainly not all black rioters meant to steal. Which is what you implied (subconsciously). So yes, it's still racist.

    @K4LLS "the blacks who go on a "riot" about mike brown when their real objective is to steal shit. " They weren't only black people, they didn't just riot, and the objective was not to steal. However, some people (who weren't all black) took the opportunity to plunder, but they have nothing to do with the demonstration that was going on.

    @intricate completely support everything you've just tried to explain to that person. What they said was racist or at least can be taken that way even if they themselves aren't. to say blacks protest only to steal shit is implying all blacks are only interested in doing so. It was a mixture of people from different ethnic backgrounds that were protesting and some of those people (a minority) also from different ethnic back grounds decided to act like complete aholes and steal and cause criminal damage. to imply it was solely blacks is an ignorant comment. thank you for pointing that out :) I also disagree with the original comment however I an understand the point of what they were trying to say. We in the uk for example wouldn't start an anti fan cafe over something like this. (but that's a difference in culture) Though our media (the press) would make a big deal of it i'm sure. Bullying a bully makes you one of them. it's an extremely hypocritical thing to do. and those involved should be ashamed.

    Yeah, @Angelicizz, the thing is... a lot of people just don't realize some of the things they say are in fact racist. I'm not blaming @K4LLS for saying such things, I'm blaming our culture for making him fail to understand why it's racist. Although I am a little disappointed that he/she doesn't just admit what they said was racist.. I sometimes say racist things without realizing.. but if somebody tells me I did I at least can apologize for it. As for the anti-fan cafe.. I guess that's just a way to congregate with those of a similar mindset. I bet the actual anti sentiments aren't even that strong. But those people are simply united in their distaste for Kim Eun Joo. I'm sure it's mostly harmless (although you do have the extremist oddball here and there of course).
