AOA's Seolhyun and Jimin criticized for supposed lack of historical knowledge

Seolhyun, Jimin

Viewers are responding in disbelief to AOA Seolhyun and Jimin's supposed lack of historical knowledge.

On the recent airing of 'Channel AOA', the two members were asked to fill in names corresponding to portraits of various historical figures. The first line lists Lee Soon Shin, Shin Saimdang, Kim Gu, Ahn Joong Geun, and Abraham Lincoln. Out of five figures, Seolhyun and Jimin only managed to get Shin Saimdang and Kim Gu correct. 

Seolhyun and Jimin were also searching their smartphones for the answers and continued to struggle even after the producer provided a hint. The two continued guessing by providing unrelated names, such as Kim Du Han. In the end, Seolhyun found the answers after minutes of research on her smartphone. 

Viewers commented in shock, "Come on. They must be acting. How can you not know Ahn Joong Geun," "How can these kids represent Korea. Their agencies should teach them Korean history before they teach them other languages," "I admit that I'm stupid, but if you're Korean, you must know Ahn Joong Geun. This one is just too much. Please go study." 

Do you think Seolhyun and Jimin need to hit the books? Maybe they knew the names, but not the faces? What are your thoughts?
