A fans comment brought tears to Cosmic Girls' Eunseo.

SEE ALSO: Cosmic Girls confirmed for their own JTBC reality show!

Netizens have frequently claimed that Eunseo looks like Swedish soccer player Zlatan Ibrahimović

In the past at a Cosmic Girls' fan meeting, a male fan pointed out their resemblance and shouted out, "Hey, Eunseo. Do you know Zlatan?" Other fans started laughing and the members of Cosmic Girls reacted with a question, asking, "Who's that?" The male fan responded, "He's a soccer player." 

Ever since then, netizens continuously named Eunseo as the look-alike of Zlatan Ibrahimović, which seemed to have been a hurtful comment for Eunseo.

At a recent fan sign event, a male fan once again told Eunseo that she looks like the soccer player. Unable to hide her hurt feelings, Eunseo burst into tears and ultimately stepped out of the fan meeting. 

Following the event, the fan officially apologized via DC Inside. He explained that he lacked information about Cosmic Girls because he just recently became their fan and didn't realize that Eunseo hated the comments about her resemblance to Zlatan that much. 

He also explained the situation in detail, stating, "I first asked her if she knew the soccer player that she looks like. But then Eunseo's facial expressions got real serious and she asked me why I was asking her that. I knew right then that I have said something that I shouldn't have. So I said nevermind but Eunseo kept asking me who, so I ended up telling her Zlatan."

Lastly, he said, "I did laugh a little but it was because the situation was unbelievable. I was not intending to make fun of her. Anyway, I sincerely apologize for hurting Eunseo's feelings. I wanted to apologize (right away) but I couldn't interrupt the fan sign event. Everyone kept criticizing me so I ran away to avoid the arrows of criticism. I'm sorry."

Wow shes so weak.

heukshuga Tuesday, February 21, 2017

Wow I feel like I'm witnessing the presidential election all over again. For all you shitheads that don't get it, let this not-very-polite Canadian sum it up for you.Let me address the biggest problem first--the horrible people telling Eunseo that she should have 'thicker skin'. You know what? You're a complete asshole. When someone says a horrible thing to another person, your response shouldn't be 'weak af', but instead more encouraging words like 'I think she's beautiful' or 'ofc she doesn't look like him'. Or you know what? Just shutting up would be helpful too. YES, she is a celebrity. YES, this happens a lot. But keep in mind WJSN is still a relatively rookie group, it takes time before people develop 'thick skin' AND people only develop 'thick skin' when they realize that they have way more fans than haters (or in this case, fans who think she's beautiful rather than dumbasses that think she looks like a man), so the LEAST you can do is shut up, or give her your support. And honestly. HONESTLY. You think your precious oppas don't cry because of haters? Trust me, they have and they do. So are you going to tell your precious oppas that they should have 'thicker skin'? You disgust me either way. She deserves your sympathy, not your assholery.Secondly, it's the people that are saying the fan should be banished, get his ass kicked, whatever. Something that's harder than shutting up is forgiving people. The guy took the liberty to go online and formally apologize and he has enough shit going for him. The important thing is, he realized that what he said was insensitive, rude, and was being a dick in general and THAT is a lesson learned. To be honest, I want him to go to another WJSN fansign and formally apologize in person to Eunseo. Whether she takes up on that apology or not though is HER right. You have no right to call out on someone that clearly realized his mistakes and apologized on the unforgiving internet, even when he knew that he'd probably get a stream of hate messages. Yes he was an asshole. Yes he was insensitive. But he gets it. Please stop. Focus on the fact that he apologized rather than his mistake.

Thank you from another fellow Canadian. Some people are so insensitive to the feelings of others. It's even worst when you realize people react like it's a joke because it's a girl group they don't like

Cry is not a sin. Her only mistake was she cried in public. NOte that it was in fan meeting.

kpoplove83 heukshuga Friday, May 26, 2017

I have no idea what your comment about the election and being Canadian have to do with anything- AKP has like 7 million fans. Do you really think they're all American just cause they're speaking English. Fans who comment are from all over the globe! ANYWAYS, there was no reason to cry. Why? because she favorsba famous male celebrity? Does Xiumin go around crying because people think he looks like Moonbyul fromMAMAMOO? Or does she cry because people tell her she looks like Xiumin? Do girls get mad when people say "wow you look JUST like your dad?" No. Cause they're not saying, "you look like a man" but they're saying "you guys favor each other in some uncanny way." People are people... male, female, etc. It doesn't matter. Just because you favor a guy's features or something is not an insult and is certainly no reason to cry. If they were making fun of her like "she looks like an ugly AF old man" then that's one thing. But these were her fans and noticing a resemblance to someone (regardless of their gender) is not an insult. As a matter of fact, I've been told I looked like a guy before and I don't get offended. Why would I? The guy was handsome! The problem is not that she cried, the problem is that she took it as an insult when it wasn't. but part of that is being young and immature, so she will learn.

Logan_W Tuesday, February 21, 2017

guys. i don't know why you are getting mad at her?? she had a genuine reaction to something that isn't flattering?? if people told you constantly that you looked like a person of the opposite sex while all of your other friends are praised for their beauty, you would have hurt feelings too or at least be sensitive about it/not love it. some people can laugh things like that off, others can't. especially if she is self conscious which with being an idol, how can she not be? normally you guys in the comments are so up your idols butts that they could murder someone & you would be defending them, but this girl cries because of being told she looks like a man and you guys are attacking her? i don't get it.

bebixo Tuesday, February 21, 2017

I pretty much NEVER comment on here, but reading this made me so irate. First of all, I read this article because I read the title wrong. I thought that SHE apologized (which, in my opinion, she SHOULD). Crying because someone says you resemble someone? Imagine if that soccer player heard about this? I would assume he would be more offended than this unknown girl group member (sorry, yeonjung <3).And to the fans taking her side...just...NO. It's not the fan's fault that this girl looks like someone. AND if it's been mentioned on multiple occasions, that obviously means she DOES look like him. For her to cry about it, to the point where the FAN has to apologize? Give me a break... and please, learn to laugh *eye roll.* I hope SHE apologizes to HIM (the fan) and HIM (the soccer player).I support Cosmic Girls for Yeonjung... but lost a whole lot of respect because of Cosmic Girl's Zlatan... oops, I mean, whatever the look-alike's name is.

happy_jellybean bebixo Tuesday, February 21, 2017

If you think that you clearly don't know Zlatan that we'll. I'm 100% sure he wouldn't care, he's got pretty high self esteem to say the least.

Johncane bebixo Tuesday, February 21, 2017

what are you on.. she is a female!! LOOL imagine telling a female she looks like a man especially a football player who is likely to be very masculine. Thats not a compliment for a lady and he would not be offended. it wouldbe different if it was a female athlete

kpoplove83 Johncane Friday, May 26, 2017

no it wouldn't no one said "you're built like zlatan," they just find a resemblance in their faces. the fact that people still get this worked up about supposed ways genders should look or not look (so much that a girl would cry about being told she resembles a male celebrity in some way) is so stupid.

Johncane kpoplove83 Saturday, May 27, 2017

People like you confuse me

kpoplove83 Johncane Saturday, June 3, 2017

must be easily confused then. im just saying... i've been told i looked like a guy. and it was nothing to cry about. i'm a very feminine person and have a very feminine style (as does this girl mentioned) so i'm just saying, it's stupid to cry when they're just saying her FACE resembles a famous male celebrity. heaven forbid that a human resembles another human. *sheds tears in a corner*

Johncane kpoplove83 Saturday, June 3, 2017

Well not everybody has the same confidence as you do

meanjoke Tuesday, February 21, 2017

Even though his comment was slightly insensitive, I hope that the fan doesn't get too bashed and can keep enjoying his fan activities. He would probably feel awkward about going back to fan meetings and stuff. I wish that the incident get resolved.

Winged_Angel meanjoke Tuesday, February 21, 2017

Who cares about the fan. He should be bashed. This is more than insensitive. What pretty young girl wiuld want to be constantly told they look like a big burly man? I'm not trying to argue or be bitchy but imagine hearing it constantly and publicly. She's hurting and hopefully this won't drive her to getting ps.

annie007 Winged_Angel Tuesday, February 21, 2017

With all due respect, it does not matter. No one should ever get bashed. Be told he's wrong? YES. But bashed? God, please, no. This proves if I may say, insensitivity. Even if he was wrong everything is about being a human being at the end of it... having an opinion is everyone's right so I'm not against your thoughts. But please, do not condone this kind of aggressive behavior, it does more bad than good. Thank you.

Winged_Angel annie007 Tuesday, February 21, 2017

Did you see the way the boys laughed in the vid? Imagine how she felt. He should feel the same which he actually probably is now. So maybe he won't do this again and maybe other idiots won't be so quick to make fun of someone like that again. It's awful but sometimes to see you're wrong in mistreatment of others you have to go through it too. Sorry if I seem cruel but I bet he'll think twice before repeating this action.

annie007 Winged_Angel Tuesday, February 21, 2017

No prob :) and no hard feelings. we're morally different people, and I personally don't really put that much faith in Hammurabi's law and that's subjectively completely fine to be on either side of it...

JMaeMae Winged_Angel Wednesday, February 22, 2017

Other idols and even celebrities were also told and being told that "you look like....." but they just laugh it off.... And she knows that she didn't look like that soccer player, so why cry lol.

Winged_Angel JMaeMae Wednesday, February 22, 2017

People have the right to feel pain or anguish or embarrassment. Maybe also she was having a bad day in general. Not everyone will be strong or handle things the same.

JMaeMae Winged_Angel Thursday, February 23, 2017

Maybe she has her monthly period on that time, lol. This kind of incident is somewhat new to me.... Because i watch videos about fans teasing idols, and idols will just laugh it off and tease the fans too.... But there are people who are very sensitive....... Btw i'm a fan of WJSN.... lol

bang_nay Tuesday, February 21, 2017

I'm not familiar with this soccer player but who the heck do you are saying she should be flattered! He's a very handsome man but that doesn't mean that she should want to be compared to him. He's very masculine so maybe the fact that people are comparing her to him she feels as though people are saying she's masculine but she doesn't see herself that way. People need to realize that idols have feelings and just because you think something is funny doesn't mean they do

seulgipringles bang_nay Tuesday, February 21, 2017

yes! Finally someone that I'm agreeing with

crystalCassie91 Tuesday, February 21, 2017

Who are we to say these comments shouldn't hurt her? Why are people complaining about how sensitive she should or shouldn't be towards them? It's non of anyone's damn business to decide how she should feel.. If it hurts her that much then there is no reason for her to pretend it doesn't.. You might think it's trivial, but to her it's probably some complex she has, maybe she's very insecure about the way she looks... Maybe she's been bullied in the past.. Also they way the fans are saying it in the video is really mean.. they are laughing and teasing her.. It's not like they are saying "Oh by the way, you look like *** ".. Constantly getting laughed at and teased by her own fans probably feels worse than we can imagine..

Dj_okoPacifist Tuesday, February 21, 2017

i feel sorry for Ibra, he's famous, handsome and rich and some nugu's Korean mock his face. Korean need to see their original face before surgery.

seulgipringles Dj_okoPacifist Tuesday, February 21, 2017

Eunseo didn't take PS, dumbass. Also Cosmic Girls is not nugu, they're pretty famous in Korea and China but not in international countries -.-

Dj_okoPacifist seulgipringles Wednesday, February 22, 2017

only in KPOP 0,01% Chinese teenager know some group = popular. keep delusional idiot. and i never said that nugu's girl do surgery because who the fckin care, i say about whole Korean

VitaminWell Tuesday, February 21, 2017

Lol I like zlatan tho. Don't worry guys if you are so mad about how popular he is and how ignorant she is. Lol I'm fuming because she's too dramatic

lilliana Tuesday, February 21, 2017

chill, Donghae compared the girl in Full House with Nicolas Cage, and she just laughed about it. Donghae even showed her a piture....But on the other side, I understand that Eunseo is young, and compare her to a foreign man is indirectly saying that she's ugly... Himnae!
