Honestly she's one of the only idols I would say should take legal action. She has gotten so much hate and she didn't even do anything. Not her fault she got popular.

GOSH!!! people can be so disgusting and jealous for other peoples success, that they can only hate them. Where is the fucking HUMANITY.

I love you, SoHye.

what she gonna do? sue someone for saying she's not talented? how is she gonna prove is a lie tho? sorry not sorry.

Defamation goes a little bit deeper than just saying she's not talented. She's been accused of having sex to keep her on Produce 101 and also to be chosen as a finalist.

I personally had said that she's untalented multiple time.. but I don't think it's categorized as defamation or spreading malicious rumours. The thing is, some of her haters go as far as spreading rumours that she f*ck her way up the rank by having sex with Mnet's higher ups in exchange for more screentime. It's one thing to express your opinior or even hatred towards someone.. it's another thing to defame, psychologically torment, and spreading lies about her. The defamation law stands to protect people against that kind of malicious act

Who defines talent? Is talent something that can be measured scientifically? Personality is a talent, and personality can compensate for lack of talent in other areas, especially in a culture that values hard work. Sohye is far from being the best singer or dancer, but she was definitely the most improved and never gave up. That is what landed her in IOI and made her as popular as she is. Plus being adorable didn't hurt either.

You're playing Sohye dirty AKP by using her worst photo ever ><

Stunmaster Tuesday, August 23, 2016

I thought those malicious comments wave would have died down already, since she turns out to be not that sensationally famous anyway. I don't think she deserves her position that she got through near ridiculous unfair amount of screentime.. but if someone actually read what knetz write at her.. wow.. it's really over the top

@allkpop Why have you posted the same article twice?

alixxxandra Monday, August 22, 2016

I didn't follow Produce 101 so could some one tell me what she did or didn't do that made her a target or is this just random targeting?

Nju alixxxandra Monday, August 22, 2016

she got ranking up when they do rank announcement.. but the rumor said that sohye is mnet daughter..

aysh95 alixxxandra Tuesday, August 23, 2016

Until PD101 she was only trained in acting, so she was really bad in sinnging and acting, but the way Mnet edited the show made her seem like she still works hard even toughs she had no talent and she improved bit by bit and even surprised the viewers sometimes with her performances...personally I would still not consider her as good singer or dancer but many viewers of PD101 apparently liked her hard working image plus she seems cute and open-minded (and dorky) she got pretty high ranks and made it into the final group. I guess a lot of people think that she doesn't deserve to be in the group because of lack of talent :/

Wazir aysh95 Tuesday, August 23, 2016

Oh come she was really in acting , its singing and dancing that she was bad xDDD

Wazir Tuesday, August 23, 2016

good in acting *

aysh95 Wazir Tuesday, August 23, 2016

oh you're right xD My mistake, I wanted to write singing and dancing xD

These people need to be taught a proper lesson. Post their picture in their neighborhood, work and school saying what kind of shitty comments they have been posting. Some people deserve public shaming.
