The drama 'Star in the Universe' starring EXO's Suho is under fire for using derogatory terms and throwing shade at fangirls. 


'Star in the Universe' depicts the love story of a top star and a fan. On the pre-released clip of episode 12, the controversial conversation among the agency CEO, manager, and singer Joyna is shown.

The conversation is as follows:


Singer Joyna: Did she go buy the drinks or is she making them?  


CEO: Treat (referring to a fan as a source of treat and presents) hurry up~ Hey, are you dating the treat..? (asking Suho)


Manager: What.. How can a person date an ATM?


CEO: Right? 


Singer Joyna: He played hard to get but it seems like he as low standards. But I mean, she must've been easy to get since she's a fangirl. She's dumb and she gives all without holding back. She'll also sleep with you if you ask.




Many netizens and fans are disturbed by how the drama referred to fans as a 'treat' and 'ATM'. Furthermore, the way it portrayed fangirls as an easy partner for sexual activities is causing anger.  


This is not the first time 'Star in the Universe' is under fire for mistreatment of fans. Back in November, the producer of the drama apologized for making fans work without getting any payment, believing their chance to see Suho is a reward itself.


What are your thoughts on how fans are depicted on 'Star in the Universe'?

    What was said in this scene might have hurt the fans but it's not like it's totally false. It's quite accurate in some case to be honest.

    Buying cds and concert tickets and merch is totally normal but what's with buying luxury goods for them?

    Actually, she is not a fan at the end. She just lost her memory when she died and became grim reaper. And this singer-girl said about sleeping with fan-girl not because it's fan-girl but because she wanted to offend this singer (he didnt want to sing with this singer-girl before).

    Dont know why people started discuss fan gifts. Girl just went to buy coffe. When she returned, she dropped coffe and ran away. Singer deleted all what he recorded for this CEO with this rude singer-girl and ran after fan-girl. Just watch this drama before leaving comments. It's on vlive with subtitles. It's small webdrama, romantic dramedy (dead girl is trying to save the singer from death). Because it really stupid to say something just from short teaser.
