BTOB's Eunkwang showed how thoughtful he was.


He had a 'V' app broadcast with his fans where he talked about how frustrated he was at how a webtoon's plot was progressing. A few of his fans who agreed used the term 'the plot is giving me cancer', as it's a popular phrase in Korean to express frustration. Eunkwang saw the comments and said, "Please try to avoid the phrase 'it gives me cancer'. People say that all the time, but it's a really bad phrase."

SEE ALSO: BTOB sing 'Beneath the Sky' on 'Immortal Song'


He explained, "So many people suffer from cancer. Let's think of those people and try to refrain ourselves from using it. We can use better terms. It's better to say things like 'It's frustrating', or 'It makes me angry'. We have to start using better terms to fix things bit by bit."




How considerate of Eunkwang!

Seo Eunkwang can't make me do SHIT. Now perhaps if he could get Song Mino to ask me to stop saying it I might consider it. I'd think about it for a looooooooooong time. Of course it would also depend on whether his shirt is on or off when he asks.

UKihyun Tuesday, December 20, 2016

On second thought, even hot shirtless Mino can't make me do anything. As soon as he put his shirt back on I'd go back to saying it. Eunkwang would have to ask Byun Baekhyun Sunbaenim to ask me to do it. That's the ONLY way I'd do it and actually stick to it.

Hellotreasure UKihyun Tuesday, December 20, 2016

No he doesn't need to ask Shirtless Mino or Byun Baekhyun to come to tell you to stop using the word, it's YOU that needs to be a big more sensitive when joking around with serious issues like this, but if you don't understand, it's okay. You're only five and a half years old, what the hell are you going to understand? 🙃🙃🙃

UKihyun Tuesday, December 20, 2016

I just realized, Eunkwang does have one secret weapon that would work against me. It's called Sungjae. I'd lick a floor for Yook Sungjae

pink_oracle UKihyun Tuesday, December 20, 2016

So you only act with morality or empathy when it suits your libido? Good luck to your parents when they get old and need your help.

UKihyun pink_oracle Tuesday, December 20, 2016

My love for Yook Sungjae is beyond his hotness. Its some undefinable thing. I dont get it. but when i just look at him I know. IKNOW. I would do whatever he said to do. I'd do it.

pink_oracle UKihyun Tuesday, December 20, 2016

You'd steal for him? Kill for him??

UKihyun pink_oracle Tuesday, December 20, 2016

yep. yep. yep. i'd be sitting in jail explaining to my cell mate like "well sungjae said...."

pink_oracle UKihyun Tuesday, December 20, 2016

You're either super sarcastic, or a dumb cunt.

UKihyun pink_oracle Tuesday, December 20, 2016

Cant I be both? Quit limiting me!

pink_oracle UKihyun Tuesday, December 20, 2016

No, sarcastic people are intelligent, it takes intelligence to be sarcastic. You can't be both. But what you can be is a sarcastic cunt, if you had your heart set on it.

UKihyun pink_oracle Tuesday, December 20, 2016

Wrong, I was born super intelligent AND a sarcastic cunt. So like I said, stop fucking limiting me m8. And tell Sungjae to call me. Let's hope he'll be a good influence

pink_oracle UKihyun Tuesday, December 20, 2016

I told him, he said he appreciates your fandom but he doesn't swing that way. And please download Genie.

UKihyun pink_oracle Tuesday, December 20, 2016

apparently you mess around with sungjae clones because the real sungjae would never turn down a taste of this. thats what i get for sending a flunky to do a queen's job. lol

UKihyun pink_oracle Tuesday, December 20, 2016

what does a bitch have to do to get a skilled flunky around here?

YifansBalls UKihyun Wednesday, December 21, 2016

Speaking as someone who actually HAS cancer. You're a jerk.

UKihyun YifansBalls Wednesday, December 21, 2016

Even you can't tell me what to say lol

UKihyun YifansBalls Wednesday, December 21, 2016

I'm sorry, did you think i would cry? feel guilty? apologize? fuck that. so many people have serious and life threatening illnesses, and you don't get a monopoly on sympathy. you dont get a special vocabulary card either

YifansBalls UKihyun Wednesday, December 21, 2016

Was I asking for sympathy? It was merely my observation. And besides, I stand corrected. You turn out to be much worse than a jerk. Seriously tho, who fucking hurt yo so bad that you turn out to be like this? As a person who has suffered through chemo, I find the term offensive and those who use it to be a bunch of inconsiderate fools. Maybe you won't have sympathy for me a mere unknown person on the net. I hope you learn to have some if you ever see a loved one or god forbid yourself to ever suffer from this disease. Not that I am praying for you nor your family to ever suffer from this god awful illness. I don't want sympathy. Fuck that, I get enough of that from family and friends. And I hate it. Coz it feels like people treat me different. What I want you to know is that this term is offensive. ESPECIALLY to those that actually suffer from cancer. It doesn;t matter who tells you not to use it, Mino or even Jesus. IT IS OFFENSIVE. Sorry for writing a lot. You thought I wanted sympathy but here I am feeling sympathy for you instead for being bitter enough to use an illness that has made people lose their loved ones or has made them unable to do stuff they have always dreamed off as a joke.

UKihyun YifansBalls Wednesday, December 21, 2016

Did you think i would read that? I didnt. Let me tell you something: all day long other people are asking to accomodate them. But when I need accommodation who does it? No one. So all you bitches are on your own, from now on. There are a lot of people online and in the world and in the kpop community who would LOVE to slather you in sympathy. GO find them.

UKihyun Wednesday, December 21, 2016

*asking me to accommodate

UKihyun Wednesday, December 21, 2016

I've learned in life that anyone too happy to tell you their sob stories is the very type of user who wants the world to accommodate them and then when its your turn those hoes can't be found. So take your game elsewhere. Im onto it already and I'm bored.

Hellotreasure YifansBalls Wednesday, December 21, 2016

Pls don't feed the troll. She will never understand what you say to her, she's 5 and a half years old. Just don't sweat it.

UKihyun Hellotreasure Wednesday, December 21, 2016

At least YOU know not to expect to get things from me that you dont deserve. So it turns out you're actually not as stupid as I fucking thought

Hellotreasure UKihyun Wednesday, December 21, 2016

Yeah, yeah, yeah, whatever *rolls eyes* I have better things to do with my life than to argue with a five and a half year old so goodbye, have a nice life

UKihyun Hellotreasure Wednesday, December 21, 2016

That's good. I like that about you. Knowing when you're barking up the wrong tree is a very important skill in life.

pink_oracle UKihyun Wednesday, December 21, 2016

You've gone too far, dial it back a bit yeah no point sending people off the edge.

UKihyun pink_oracle Friday, March 3, 2017

Yes there is totally a point. it's called laughter

Hellotreasure UKihyun Saturday, March 4, 2017

Totally irrelevant here, but we both have the same biases in Monsta X lmao

sheillalaa Tuesday, December 20, 2016

That's my Boy... I'm proud of himAnd for you guys who said he's attention seeker. He bring that topic not out of nowhere. He talking about Webtoon that recently he reads and he said the comment section is also crazy then he remember that so many people use that phrase. And that's not good thing to express something.... :):)

Hellotreasure Monday, December 19, 2016

You know what annoys me a lot? WHEN boys in my class come up to me and start telling me that I'm "bullying" them because I told them to fuck off or some stupid shit like that. I mean why the hell would you throw bullying like a joke?? It's not funny because I used to get left out of things and get bullied when I was younger. So please let us NOT use the word "bully", "bullied" and "bullying" as a joke because there are people who have (almost) committed suicide because of bullying. Thanks for reading this long ass comment (if you actually bothered to read this XD) and have a nice day.

pink_oracle Monday, December 19, 2016

And can we please stop saying 'triggered' like it's a fun phrase. It's not fun being the victim of rape I'm sure.

Hellotreasure pink_oracle Monday, December 19, 2016

I will never understand why people use that word tbh...

pink_oracle Hellotreasure Monday, December 19, 2016

I guess to some people any excuse to be 'rebellious' is cool.

Hellotreasure pink_oracle Tuesday, December 20, 2016

Yeah and I saw memes and vines using it and I was like 'WTF? Why would you use that word?'. Oh well, I guess I don't understand people these days 🙃🙃

ThreeDelivery Monday, December 19, 2016

I've never been a fan of that phrase either

17caratarohas Monday, December 19, 2016

EVERY TIME MY FRIENDS SAY IT and every time they say hang yourself or kill yourself or your gay or this is gay as a joke it annoys me soo much cuz one cancer is not funny its serious two do you really want someone to hang themselves do u know how scary that is it's suicide and three what is wrong being gay and why is that used offensively the fact that there is a phobia for it as well makes me angry and im straight and christian but i dont think it's wrong we are all humans and when was a rule created that we cant fall in love with the same sex. GOSH PPL HOW WOULD U FEEL IF SOMEONE SAID THAT TO U AND U DID HAVE CANCER OR U DO HAVE DEPRESSION AND WANT TO HARM YOURSELF OR YOU DO LIKE THE SAME GENDER THINK ABOUT IT it hurts:) sorry for the rant

17caratarohas Monday, December 19, 2016

....um not the smiley face take out the smiley face

EmBTSLover 17caratarohas Monday, December 19, 2016

Good way of putting it. I completely agree!

PurplenightJenks 17caratarohas Friday, April 7, 2017

I agree. Although, the word "gay" can also mean happy as well not just for homosexuality. But if they're using it in the terms of being a homo, then it's annoying. What ever they ever done to them? Nothing. because our sexuality doesn't affect other people's lives. People should be happy.

YifansBalls Monday, December 19, 2016

I am 23 and have Stage 3 Hodgkin's Lymphoma. I've gone through 5 cycles of Chemo and am now undergoing Radiotherapy. It has been a difficult 6 months for me so fuck you if you find this phrase funny.

jayymeeeeps YifansBalls Tuesday, December 20, 2016

please stay strong!! i will be rooting for you

Hellotreasure YifansBalls Tuesday, December 20, 2016

Stay strong!

YifansBalls jayymeeeeps Wednesday, December 21, 2016

Thank you! I am expected to complete my Radiotherapy next month. Pray for my recovery :)

YifansBalls Hellotreasure Wednesday, December 21, 2016

Thank you! I will try my very best! :)

jayymeeeeps YifansBalls Wednesday, December 21, 2016

i will, God bless you!

Tzuyu_4yu Monday, December 19, 2016

I used to say this all of the time (I've stopped though). Does that make me a bad person? T_T

17caratarohas Tzuyu_4yu Monday, December 19, 2016

as long as you know now and don't continue it or use it badly it's okay

Tzuyu_4yu Monday, December 19, 2016

There's an actual difference though between something being frustrating or "cancerous". Sure they could use terms like 'sickening', but how will Eungkwang be able to explain that to twelve year olds (it's mainly them who use the phrase anyway)?

Tzuyu_4yu Monday, December 19, 2016

He's just now asking this? Wow. Some people just aren't living in 2016, I guess.
