On January 6, Shinji wrote on Instagram, "I'm not sure what to do! Please~ Stop leaving weird comments in private! Our Kim Daesang nim (Kim Jong Min) and Bbaek Gga are not bad people! If you continue doing so I'm going to screenshot it and upload it here. Please stop. Just hate on me please~ I can't stand it when you mess with my members. Please! It's a new year so can we welcome it happily and joyfully? Whatever the reason might be, just hate on only me."
This is not the first time Shinji expressed frustration and anger toward malicious commenters. Netizens are also hoping that unreasonable hate against the Koyote members comes to an end.
