The video post seemed innocent enough as the singer is smiling brightly next to a birthday cake, as she is about to blow out the candles.
Before she blew them out for her wishes, she yelled out, "Gong Yoo, I summon you!" which netizens found rather strange.
Netizens criticized her and wrote, "Starting with Lee Min Ho previously, it seems she's been mentioning all these top male actors."
"She has such a big dream."
"You should practice singing more, Bora, how can your singing be even worse than a random person off the street?"
"What a ditz. In these situations most people would call the actor by their character name, you just can't call a higher senior by their name so blatantly. Would she be ok if a younger junior blurted out her name without any honorifics? She needs to be more careful."
"An ugly duckling trying to get with Gong Yoo, how dare she..."
"You're not close enough in age with Gong Yoo to call him out like that."
"Who is she to summon our dear Gong Yoo."
It was innocent enough and there was no harmful intention, these netizens seem too much.
