f(x) Krystal's fans are upset by the way KBS's 'Happy Together 3' compared the idol star to rock singer Kim Kyung Ho.

On the October 27 episode, Kim Kyung Ho appeared on the show as one of the guests, and one of the topics of the talk was his great resemblance to Krystal. This comparison wasn't a new issue to fans, since it has already been roaming the web for a few years. At times, Krystal's anti-fans made fun of her resemblance to the rock singer, saying that she was masculine.  







Krystal's fans are already upset that this comparison was brought up on a show from a major broadcast network, but matters got worse as 'Happy Together 3' played a game, called 'Finding Kim Kyung Ho & Krystal' where the cast members and guests tried to figure out who was who by looking at their photos. 





Many fans found the comments made during the game rude and offensive. For example, in the first photo, Jun Hyun Moo said, "That's not Krystal. She wouldn't wear something like that", while another stated, "That person is a fashion terrorist." However, most of the guests had guessed wrong, and the figure in the photo was actually Krystal.





As the level of the game increased, everyone moved closer to the screen to get a better view of the photos. For the third and last photo, the 'Happy Together 3' members and guests argued about the correct answer, once again making "offensive" comments such as, "That person looks old", "That's definitely an old face", etc. However, it was Krystal in the picture again. 










Fans claim that the game, which consisted of making comparisons as well as comments about their looks in general, was extremely rude. Jun Hyun Moo has been subject to the most criticism for "offensive" comments he made toward the idol.

    I'm so glad that the Krystal BJ incident did become a scandal. She is an adult.
