Not all EXO-Ls were lashing out at Kim Hwan Hee and Seo Shin Ae for naming other groups other than EXO as their favorite artists.

It appears that there were more levelheaded EXO-Ls who believed that insulting the young actresses was entirely uncalled for and out of line. 

A part of the EXO fandom have stepped forward to issue an official apology on the fandom's behalf, apologizing to everyone who were directly and indirectly involved in the recent controversy. 

The apology reads:

"Hello. This is EXO's fan club EXO-Ls. 

As a representative of the EXO fan club 'EXO Fan Talk,' I was compelled to relay an apologetic heart through this letter to Ms. Kim Hwan Hee and Ms. Seo Shin Ae who were hurt by our fan club's censure and malicious comments. 

It is our fandom's wish to officially apologize about directing insults and hate comments toward Ms. Hwan Hee and Seo Shin Ae for saying that they like other groups on 'Happy Together' and for the fact that Ms. Hwan Hee got more screen time [than EXO]; everyone in our fandom are currently reflecting on our actions. 

1. Apology regarding what was said on Twitter

This is an apology from Twitter fans who insulted Kim Hwan Hee following the 'Happy Together' broadcast. Currently, several fans who have uploaded official apologies deleted their accounts. 

2. Apology for driving Ms. Seo Shin Ae to shut down her Instagram

Among fans within Korea, more people reacted positively toward Seo Shin Ae rather than write hate comments and rebuke her; however, it seems that international fans bombarded her with malicious comments so we can only apologize [for their behavior] as those of the same fandom. It was difficult for us directly obtain an apology from them due to a communication barrier but as the representative of EXO's fan club 'EXO Fan Talk,' we would like to apologize 

3. The situation on ['Happy Together'] viewer forums 

Following the broadcast, inconsiderate fans had written on the viewer forums that they were disappointed, etc., so we have cleansed the forums with more positive messages. 

Lastly, we would like to apologize once again for inconveniencing so many people and bringing frowns upon their faces for what these inconsiderate fans said. We will try our best so that no one else would be hurt by our fandom from a similar incident. Further, it is our wish that this occurrence will not be brought up on forums again.

We apologize once more to Ms. Seo Shin Ae and Ms. Kim Hwan Hee for being hurt by inconsiderate fans.

-Everyone at 'EXO Fan Talk'-"

It's not just international fans, I know for a fact the fans in the states we don't call people out or be rude, I don't speak for all but I know this is true, we don't get all crazy when a lucky person gets to meet the idols. Hate to break it to them but it's true.

It's nice that someone apologized, but it still doesn't solve the problem, does it? On top of that, those EXO-L's are just gonna continue acting the way they normally do now that SOMEONE has apologized on their behalf. It's not like they're gonna adapt a better attitude from this point on.

just a question how come allkpop is the only website in the world who translated this none them allkpop? spoomi didn't translated it, I tried to find Korean source for this but there's none, even tried to search the name of EXO fans talk again there is nothing :/ even in naver and every Korean website I know there's 0 ..

One more apology from people who have nothing to do with part of fandom's bullshit. I still believe this is just polite move and real apology should come from those who are guilty. As Army I know this.

BoBo101 Wednesday, July 13, 2016

Lol, I really appreciate this apology, since what happened was not cool at all but, it seems to me that this is a back-handed insult.

Fayolia Wednesday, July 13, 2016

Does it matter whether the Korean fans or international fans did it?

alittlebaozi Fayolia Friday, July 15, 2016

That's what I'm saying.

I'm glad the mature side of EXO-Ls are rising. We Are One after all. Hopefully, the immture fans learned from this.

Lotus_Girl Tuesday, July 12, 2016

Just a question how come only allkpop who translated this "Supposed apologize letter" I tried so hard to find the Korean source, but like if it did disappeared somehow, nothing in naver or any Korean Website I know ..

Sophia_Sone4ever Lotus_Girl Sunday, July 17, 2016

I've been searching for since last week but akp is the only site that posted this and even in naver I couldn't find it. Plus I tried to search the club name too in case it's in there but no result too. :(

Lotus_Girl Sophia_Sone4ever Sunday, July 17, 2016

Isn't this weird? even DISPATCH didn't post anything about this :D and people calling me delusional here because I don't worship allkpop :p I even did follow some Korean fans base on twitter, facebook and weibo but none of them did say anything about this ..

Sophia_Sone4ever Lotus_Girl Sunday, July 17, 2016

Exactly , I m starting to doubt the legitness of this news like is this real in the first place. These people are calling you delusional without even thinking like what will We get trying to deny this when this news does nothing but improve our exoL image -_- seriously I m telling you some people don't think before saying. Weird how akp is the only site they reported and plus isn't there site for 'Exo fan talk' too ? But I searched but nope nothing. Is this news even for real

Well as apologies go, its good to apologise. But I dont get the big deal. 2 girls prefer others over EXO. Thats their choice. A few ( or a lot) of other people hate and offers their horrible opinion of those 2 girls. Thats their choice too. However those people DO NOT represent ME ( an EXO fan) nor A LOT of other fans. SO. I would not apologise on behalf of fans, who didnt really say anything bad. less than 1% of people does not represent fans. Instead of apologising, EXOl should just reprimand those people for using bad language and giving exol a bad name.

CBA shireen_natalie Wednesday, July 13, 2016

You've a point but EXO-Ls' names have been tainted because of some of the crazy fans. What the fan club did is a great thing because those cuckoo fans have been told over and over again to stop but nothing seems to change.

alittlebaozi shireen_natalie Friday, July 15, 2016

Right I like more than just EXO, some exol think that you only have to listen to that group to part of the fandom. This is why I don't claim fandoms.
