The controversy surrounding AOA's lack of knowledge on general Korean history is still hanging onto the girls' coattails, refusing to let go.

AOA, who were criticized for not knowing a key historical figure named An Jung-geun from the Korean Independence movement, had come under fire for their limited knowledge on and making light of Korean history. 

An online post pointed out that the terms 'Martyr An Jung-geun' and 'An Jung-geun' were banned in the chat room during AOA's showcase which was broadcasted live via 'V'. The post shared screen captures from the chat room showing the error message that popped up when 'An Jung-geun' was typed in. The error message read, "Your message contains restricted phrases. Please try again after making a revision."

Netizens who came across his post suspected that FNC had deliberately banned those terms from being used by anyone during AOA's showcase. 

The top comments on this article were mixed, reading, "If only they had bothered to look even the slightest bit embarrassed. If only they had said just once how sorry they are. If only they hadn't laughed like idiots and said 'ginttokkang'.." "I don't know about anything else but their agency is [AOA's] true anti-fan tsk tsk.." "I just feel bad for all of you who fall for these kinds of articles. You trash bitches and bastards," "Do they really need to know An Jung-geun the terrorist?" "That big-faced [FNC] CEO is total trash," and more.

I'm not completely sure but could it be because anti's were posting vulgur things while mentioning An JungGeun for example: "You ***** how could you not know An JungGeun" and after a certain point the server just thought his name was also a curse because it kept trying to block out the real curses? Or is it really the FNC ceo who banned it? I mean it's through the V app can he even band words he's just one CEO

"If only they had said just once how sorry they are."IDK about other parts but this part lol, they already said sorry wth??I know how big this scandal is. Stupidity is their own fault, but I'm more enraged by how sloppy FNC's handling this sh*t.And to be honest, personally I don't feel too betrayed. After all there's no academic requirement to be an idol. I already expected stuff like this to happen, especially with ppl with limited talent like them. I like Seolhyun but not for her talent (coz she haz none).

ถ้า someone come to parody your family.  You're  angry  and upset.  But when they  were unintentional  and  apologized. Your  should be kind and forgiving.  Your  mind will become  more precious.  Society  is more livable. And your country  will be respected by the whole world.  Let  not the hatred to threaten mind Koreans. I wish your country is full of fun and smile. 😂

The people that attempted to use the banned words were the anti's and now they are just pissy cause their attempts at saying hurtful things about that controversy flew back in their faces.

Exactly! The antis were just trying to troll AOA and when they couldn't they got all butt hurt.

I don't blame FNC for banning those words

So if companies don't treat artists well, these people complain and if they try to protect their idols, you complain again! Hah~ seriously
