The Korean fans are claiming that the group got unfair treatment from the MCs and that the content was nothing fresh, the topics inappropriate, and, most upsettingly, there was just not enough air time for the group who was there to promote their new album.
The group were on the show October 20 as featured guests on the show, which is aired on KBS 2TV, one of the major broadcasting networks in Korea.
Here are some of the complaints from Korean Shawols:
"They were on the show to promote the new album, but nobody paid attention to it. They played the song for 5 seconds when [SHINee] was entering....they edited the preview as if [SHINee] was going to get a lot of air time, but they failed. Please send them to 'Yoo Hee Yeol's Sketchbook.'"
"Why is it called 'Happy Together' when nobody's happy."
"I want to go to KBS and shout. These b*stards."
"When Onew was breaking the walnut, Taemin said, 'Don't get hurt,' and Jonghyun also said, 'Don't get hurt.' Please...He can break it, but he can still feel pain. Don't make him do it."
"Other guests: they get to wrap up their stories. SHINee: When they start talking, the MCs kinda skip over the end of the story and nobody get to hear how the story ends."
"Are they just pretty screen (slang for people who do nothing)? What are you doing with busy [SHINee]."
Did you guys watch the show? What are your thoughts?
