Several hours before the idol couple officially confirmed their breakup, Zico updated his Instagram with the link to his Soundcloud, uploading two instrumental versions of his song, "It Was Love". He also asked fans to sing their own renditions of "It Was Love" to the instrumentals, providing free downloads of them. Netizens claimed that the uploads were related to his recent breakup.

Many netizens found it disturbing that Zico seemed to be expressing his feelings with music right on the day of the news, and criticized him with comments like, "Lol he's so corny", "You're supposed to be sad after a breakup, not showing off your music on SNS", "He said the public relationship was overwhelming, but I guess not a public breakup", "He's a jerk til the very end..", "Grow up. Seolhyun was too good for you", etc.
When the couple's dating news first broke out, Zico was also criticized for his "unmanly" actions such as making Seolhyun run to his home, confirming the news by saying the two are close sunbae-hoobaes, etc.
It seems like Zico is targeted with criticism from the beginning to the end of their relationship. Do you think he deserves it?
