CNBLUE Minhyuk's recent Instagram post is stirring up controversy.

On July 20, Minhyuk shared a photo of a 'Patek Philippe' Nautilus 5711/1A-010 watch, which costs about $24,000 USD, with the caption, "I tried to find this watch, but I heard it's hard to find it worldwide.. I agree 100% with the saying that you tend to want it more if you can't have it. It's the first time in awhile that I wanted something this bad.. I will search all over the world.. and make you mine."

The post was soon targeted by netizens, who accused Minhyuk of indirectly asking fans to buy him the expensive accessory. Comments stated, "You can easily find it online. There isn't a waiting list or anything. What a jerk", "He's also out of his mind like his other members", "Did you really have to share this on SNS? You could've kept it to yourself", and more. 

On the other hand, some defended the idol star, saying, "Can he not just simply say he wants something?", "It just seems like he really wants it. Nothing else.", etc. 

Since then, the post has been deleted from Minhyuk's Instagram.

He can easily find it online? Are you kidding me? You're telling me they sell 24k watches on ebay or something? No he actually said in the comment that there aren't many WORLDWIDE like...??? "Hey everyone look at this car that's really pretty i defiantly want to share it because i want you to get me a very expensive car...."  ???? like... are you kidding me? You think everybody who post something they don't or can't have are asking for it? Get a life... maybe that's how you netizens live but most people aren't that low

Everything CN Blue does after the scandal is wrong for these people. Leave Minhyuk alone, he could buy his own watch.

Ugh... netizens are so OBNOXIOUS. HE DIDN'T ASK FOR IT!! Making a mountain out of a mole hill. Get a life, people.

HE DID NOT ASK FOR IT. he just posted that he was fond of the watch on his ig. srsly.#learned that even posting what you want on sns is another thing that k-idols CAN'T do. -.-

seriously? are these netizens hopeless to stir things up on purpose to cause controversy? where in any part of the post did he mention that he wants the fans to purchase it for him? There are so many people out there who post things they want but cant have, even I did this a few times but its just the way to express how much we are attached to what we really want. I just really can't work with the netizens mind anymore. had enough of their ridiculous jokes.

Who exactly are netizens? What's the meaning of that word?

boicemusic94 Chris_B Thursday, July 21, 2016

I think it means network citizens meaning online citizens who comment on posts, forums, news etc.

chaelicen Thursday, July 21, 2016

more like "hey fans where can i find this asap?? i really want it" smh

daFoolio Thursday, July 21, 2016

he did NOTHING wrong... this is just another case of psycho netizens reading into things more than they appear.... what a bunch of idiots.  the guy can't even say he WANTS something??  he can afford it... not ONCE did i even feel that he sounded like he was asking netizens to buy it for him.... calm down psychos~~~
