Hyung Eun is reportedly departing the girl group BULLDOK. Meanwhile, netizens are more concerned about her comments about BTS' V.


Recently, Hyung Eun appeared on BJ Rose's Afreeca TV broadcast. During the show, a viewer asked a question about BTS and Hyung Eun commented, "I totally lost interest in them." She specifically talked about V and said, "He was dancing but he must've had athlete's foot because he was wearing slippers..."

Following the broadcast, netizens criticized Hyung Eun for her rudely talking about sunbae group BTS without using honorifics and claiming V had athlete's foot.


BJ Rose deleted the video in response to the criticism. Hyung Eun also uploaded an apology on Instagram but soon deleted all of her posts and turned her account to private. 


Shortly after the controversy, an exclusive report by Ilgan Sports revealed that BULLDOK plans to promote as a group of 4 without Hyung Eun from now. The reason is due to Hyung Eun's health issues.


Netizens commented, "Hyung Eun, please apologize properly before you leave the group. Your apology didn't seem sincere at all. You need to give proper feedback'', "She's sick.... Well, I hope you get better but you need to apologize to Tae Hyung before you go..."


Although Hyung Eun's departure from BULLDOK does not seem to have any relations to the controversy involving V, her departure is currently gaining greater attention due to her comments about BTS.

    wait I'm pretty sure hyung eun is the girl on the left... if so, then she wasn't even the one who said the stuff about V's foot. If you guys speak Korean she DID address without honorifics, but she DID say she's a really big fan of V and was in awe during their rehearsal. Like yeah who wouldn't be LOL

    As a die hard Army. It's not even the fact she said shit about V or BTS, it's the fact she's rude as fuck and is high up her own ass (full of herself and doesn't care what she says about others). You shouldn't say this about anyone UNLESS the person is known to be an asshole, has a bad rep, or has criminal acts. Tbh even then it's still not right. Like yeah you can think it because everyone thinks badly about someone, but don't say it on public tv or where you're a celeb and everyone will see it. It's stupid.

    She's being pretty stupid. Even if she don't like a certain group or don't care about them she should say she is a huge fan instead. I mean that's how it works you gotta fake it till u make it. Not out right say don't like them and tease a certain member. Maybe because she know she's dropping out of kpop due to health issue she felt she could be brave.

    I hate it when someone cant respect his or her senior.  Like she did.  I remember,  one member of popular group didnt respect and bow to his senior when that senior won over his senior in the same company. Oh, not only that boygroup member,  but another member of another group from the same company did it.  But then,  since both of them were coming from popular groups and one of the big 3, so their fans kept saying this and that.  Nah,  hyung eun,  before becoming a popular group's member,  dont ever dream to talk shit to ur senior.  Especially to a group that is now so freaking popular.  Even bigbang bowed to their juniors,  who are you to talk rude to your senior? Some juniors nowadays are so arrogant.  Just bcuz they sold millions albums,  they can be arrogant to their seniors?  I wonder if they still can be the popular ones in this year or next year or in their 10 years anniversary like bigbang or tvxq.

    We all know who you are talking about and there is 100% no need to bring them in. For one rapmonster and many other idols refer to their sunbaes without honorifics, so why you decided to bring down another group blows my mind 😒 just get over it

    It's because the ones RM didn't use honorofics are close friends with him and who did RM did not call sunbae anyway, I can't seem to remember.

    the thing about the foot is just the little problem here i leave here a better comment this in not my comment but from "anonymous004" I don't think people really understand why the fuss over this is all about because akp did miss some details (not bashing akp in anyway doe) but as a korean and reading the exact same post about this on korean websites the phrase "lost interest in them" (it's not even translated to what it actually means) is actually really rude to say even to your closest friend in korea // its basically a swear or a really rude insult and the fact that she is just a rookie and she doesn't even know bts properly (bts is like a reaaaaaaally respected senior group ) using no honourifics is just another way of rudely insulting someone in korea. I also read her apology note and it really wasn't sincere at all (she even added in a tad bit of sarcasm) but anyways in KOREAN culture you just cant get any ruder than that honestly but ye hope she gets well and apologise once more so she wont bring damage to herself and possibly her group.

    Athlete's foot is a fungal infection on the foot.

    As karmin2349 mentioned above, she was basically saying that V has athlete's foot (a fungal infection on the foot) because he always wears slippers. The thing is, if you're an army, you would know that V doesn't like wearing shoes. Bottom line: she disrespected BTS, a senior group, by saying that "she lost interest in them" and assumed that V has a fungal infection on his feet because he wears slippers while dancing lol

    So, it's pretty common for a person with athlete's foot to stop wearing regular shoes and wear only slippers - because the fungus grows better in shoes (they're closed spaces, dampish, and dark - perfect for fungus). In Korea, it's very uncommon for a person to wear slippers (even those adidas athletic sandals.. pretty much all sandals with one big strap.. are called slippers) out and about. It's actually considered embarrassing - like walking out of the house in pajamas. (it's been mentioned to me because as a foreigner here i was wearing "slippers" outside of my house.... either i was sick, a beggar or psycho all because of the shoes!) Anyway. Pointing out someone's slippers and then saying he prefers to wear them because he has to air out his feet....Rude. (if you want to see it in a drama, the athlete's foot shoes thing was in a japanese drama from last year... kaitou tantei yamaneko)

    This is what we call 'stupid people doing stupid actions' she isnt really wrong, but she isnt right as well.. like excuse me, she is old enough to know how the world works you know, what was she and her friend expecting after saying that? Everyone should know at this point that BTS Fangirls arent a joke.. you dont like bts? Keep that to yourself dude, saying it in front of cameras wont help you... And the foot thing was really extra..

    This is getting more attention than it should because the 2 men asked them both to please stop making fun of V and BTS. That prompted them to not stop but to go at them harder. This could be any other group or individual and the reaction would have been the same. It's incredibly ill mannered and simply is not done.

    Lol, I love how all these I-fans keep saying,"It's Korean culture, and based on what she did, according to that culture, she's wrong."Excuse me, but, are you Korean, lol? I won't say if she was wrong or right since I don't know ANYTHING really about this culture or why this is wrong. I'm just going to say as a foreigner, I didn't see anything wrong with what she said. If this is something that actually is disrespectful in the Korean culture, and not just a shield netz are using to come after someone who they didn't like what she said, she definitely should apologize sincerely. And be more careful in the future.

    I get your point but even though you are not Korean, it's a well-known fact that they give a huge importance to respect... And if you are a huge Kpop fan, you would know that what she did (as a member of a rookie group) was very disrespectful to BTS (a very successful senior group).

    Hey, this is a comment from a Korean so you can understand more why this issue became really big (besides the fact that BTS has become really popular lately) Comment from anonymous 004: "I don't think people really understand why the fuss over this is all about because akp did miss some details (not bashing akp in anyway doe) but as a korean and reading the exact same post about this on korean websites the phrase "lost interest in them" (it's not even translated to what it actually means) is actually really rude to say even to your closest friend in korea // its basically a swear or a really rude insult and the fact that she is just a rookie and she doesn't even know bts properly (bts is like a reaaaaaaally respected senior group ) using no honourifics is just another way of rudely insulting someone in korea.

    Okay, that makes more sense then. People were getting so offended over something about athletes foot *eye roll*, but if what she said was actually translated in a way that did not show the disrepectful tone, then I can understand the backlash.

    of course the athletes foot was highly unnecessary too...it's unprofessional as someone who's in the same profession and rude as a human being to announce to the whole world that u saw a group of members practicing their ass off to their choreography and just because they wanted to wear slippers because it's more comfortable u get called for having a foot disease?

    I am being honest, I am offended of the 'athletes foot' too if I view myself being the person she is directing her words too, imagine this, she is a total stranger to you, doesn't know everything about you then goes on saying in a live camera that you have athletes foot just because you wear slippers? (V doesn't even wear ordinary slippers, it's gucci because he is a gucci lover) I am offended of her not using honorofics because I have a knowledge of korean culture and my country also have that similar tradition that we have words that indicates respect to seniors and those who are older than us, we are only permitted to say their name alone if we're so close, that's why I understand the anger of some fans, not only koreans have this kind of culture some other countries do too so you can't go around saying "Excuse are you korean?" because it may sound rude to others, as a person, I don't want some stranger to not respect me if I'm clearly older and a senior to her/him and I don't want her/him going around saying I have athletes foot just because I wear slippers right?

    Okay, you clearly admitted you are not Korean, so, it really does not matter how close your culture is to being Korean. And, why should it be rude if I say that to someone who CLEARLY is NOT Korean? If someone said that to me and I was making baseless accusations, then I'd just admit that I'm not Korean because I am NOT (I'm not saying what your saying is baseless even though I don't agree since I can understand why some fans would be upset with what she said even if she has the right to say it.). You're culture may or may NOT be reminiscent of their own. The Korean culture is not your own, and you being offended about someone pointing that out to you is more a reflection of you rather than that person. I personally wouldn't care if someone that I didn't know said that about me. That's why I didn't see it being that bad because people can say what they want as long as it is not a defamation of my character. As long as she did not say something that could truly hurt V or his career, I feel she has the right to say what she wants.

    Ok I understand, we have different opinions but she also needs to be careful since not all people are open-minded, but I ask you if you're being negative about me being offended, I am not Korean but I do have knowledge about their culture and I clearly said that what you commented may sound rude to others, I didn't say that you were rude lmao, I wasn't offended that you pointed out that I wasn't korean but I was sharing my opinion that's why I admitted that I was offended about the athlete's foot because she doesn't know V that much to say things like that, she has a right to say something but there is also a limit, she is being recorded too and being watched so she should've kept it inside her or said it in a nicer term, and because she IS korean she needs to follow her culture too right? I don't know but you seemed angry at me because I said such things, please read my comment again I wasn't attacking you ok in case you misunderstand and please asses what I'm implying , and I just read your comment saying it will not damage V or hurt him if she said V has an athlete foot, clearly there is a possibility that it will affect him, people will spread rumors about him having athlete's foot and media will discover neteizens will read about the articles and people's impression of V is that he has an athlete's foot so it may affect him

    Lmfao, I wasn't angry with you. I just found it kind of stupid that you are telling me not to say to people that they aren't Korean when they are NOT! I was just emphasizing. As I said before, she has a right to say what she said and it is not going to hurt V's career because by now he is well known enough in Korea to have a strong fanbase to watch out for him. Plus, having athlete's foot is not exactly a scandal, lol, and it has not been proven true. The only people who would try to use that against V are anti-fans, and they will do and say whatever they want anyway just to hurt BTS. I really don't know what we are arguing about at this point. I have said my peace, and so have you. I am not changing my opinion, and neither are you. So can we please just let this rest, lol. I completely understand everything you are saying. I just don't agree, and I'm not angry or offended on anything. And, I hope you aren't either. So, yeah.
