IOI member, Pinky, is receiving backlash from some EXO fans over what she said during the group's 1st place win on the October 26 edition of 'Show Champion'.

During the girls emotional moment of winning their first No.1 award as an entire member group, the IOI members thanked and shouted out to their fans with various words of gratitude. Netizens noticed that in the midst of a bit of chaos, Pinky's voice can be heard shouting, "IOI, Let's Love! (IOI, sa-rang-ha-ja!)" Some EXO fans in Korea are upset that she is using the famous EXO chant, "EXO, Let's Love! (EXO, sa-rang-ha-ja!)," which the group has been using since their debut. 





On a popular online community board, the poster wrote that Pinky seemed too overwhelmed with emotion, and impulsively used the phrase without thinking. Some replies criticized the poster and EXO-L, calling them too sensitive, and saying that they do not own the phrase. After a while, the most voted up comment became the following: 





"...in fandom culture, it's common knowledge to not use other fandom's things. EXO uses the chant in public performances and on air when they receive awards before they get on stage. This isn't just us. Other fandoms have fought because of something like this. Isn't it expected that we will be angry about this? Is it right for a singer to use another group's chant?" 





Many fans are tweeting their thoughts with #EXO_letslove and expressing their desire to protect the phrase. One tweet says, "Please do not copy the chant...It means a lot to EXO and EXO-L's." Some are demanding an apology from IOI and their fans. The tweet below says, "I didn't know IOI fandom would still not apologize...It's so pathetic that they don't know right from wrong." 






What do you think? Do you think IOI fans should apologize for calling EXO-L's too sensitive after they became angry over Pinky's usage of the EXO chant?

The right words came from you. Non fans don't know about the phrase or its relation to you and your group. So why attack someone innocent?

We get it that u don't like how she used the word that u guys don't even f*cking own so stop replying to other people's comment about how "u love ioi but they shouldn't use the word" because we could all say to that ur not a real fan as u don't understand that she just said it out of excitement. So shup the hell up and don't even say that ur a ioi fan because ur really not.

And also Pinky is a Exo fan and an IOI fan would know this because a true ioi fan watches their variety show and in that variety show, her and the other ioi members even the ibi members was being a fangirl when they were watching exo on tv when they had a comeback.

Dear K Exo L, more than anything, this actually proves that Pinky is also an Exo L.

BTW, "Saranghaja" is actually a word that high school students says a lot back in the 2000's, which is why Suho used it, he was from that generation. So how is it that now only ExoL has the right to say it???

Give us a proof that Exo "LEGALLY" owns that saranghaja phrase and I'll kiss every Exo-L's (that says Pinky is wrong) ass.

First of all, I didn'generalize the fandom (if you've just read my comment). Next, Pinky said it out of joy and NOT as an INTRODUCTION nor FAREWELL GREETING. If the whole group said it, as you assumed they did but didn't (See there, you said, "but THEY really shouldn't use.."), then they were wrong. Lastly, we understand it's meaningful to you but we're not informed that you own the phrase. I hope next time you release copies of words owned by your group and your fandom so we won't have misunderstandings and problems here. Thank you too and have a good day! :)

I legit thought she slipped up and said something about EXO or w.e, but it's just some tedious situation.
