Baek Ye Rin is stepping away from active social media usage. 

On March 7, Baek Ye Rin posted a lengthy message on her Instagram along with screenshots of the malicious message she received. 

The hateful messages targeted Baek Ye Rin for her recent dating rumors, popularity, and more. Part of the messages stated, "You think you're something because you're under a big agency but don't be thinking that you're same as other musicians. You would've been a nobody if it weren't for your label", "You hit on all the guys and made it so obvious that you are dating but didn't confirm it lol you're so funny", and more.

In response to the cruel messages, Baek Ye Rin declared that she'll be decreasing SNS activities. 

She explained, "It saddens me that there are more things that worry my fans than the good things. I appreciate the advice telling me how to deal with it and the encouragements but I can't take it no longer." 

At the end, Baek Ye Rin declared, "I plan to not post any private posts except the ones about an important schedule, official events, etc. But I will still go live often. Let's meet frequently for good things! Thank you, you guys~"

전 제가 다 맞는다고 하는 사람은 아니에요. 하지만 근본 없는 무분별한 댓글과 지속적인 괴롭힘은 처벌도 불가능할뿐더러, 그걸 악용하는 분들도 많아졌고요. 보지 말거나 감당하라는 얘기들을 계속 듣다 보니 싫기도 하고 팬분들과 더 좋은 얘기보다는, 팬분들이 걱정하실 내용들이 더 많아지는 것 같아서 마음이 안 좋습니다. 위로해주거나, '~이러이러한 게 현명할 것 같다'라는 말들도 고맙지만, 저는 더 이상 그렇게 못하겠어서요. 정말 본인들 일이라면 저한테 하듯 부정적인 시선으로 인성이 별로다, 논란이 많다 이런 문장들을 갖다 붙일 순 없을 텐데, 전 이해가 가지 않는 부분이 많네요. 해석의 자유, 언급의 자유 등 존중합니다. 최소한 저는 제 몫을 하며 열심히 살고 있다는 생각이 들어서, 이런 글들이 수십 개가 와도 금방 까먹어버리곤 하지만, 마음대로 말하고 마음대로 생각하셔도 괜찮아요. 중요한 일정이나, 오피셜한 이벤트 외엔 사소한? 개인적인? 게시물들을 올리지 않으려구요. 그래도 라이브도 자주 할 거고, 좋은 얘기들로도 자주 봐요! 우리. 고마오요~그대드르드르드르

"youre nothing without your company" well you anti's are nothing with AND without social media. At least Yerin has talent while jealous anti's only have their spiteful and salty attitude. Its such a shame since Yerin is so different and I love her music

Bitches talking about "ur nothing without ur company" umm so what hoe? Don't b jelly, at least she's doing what she loves bringing joy musically to ppl whereas u spread around like cancer (I got a lil ratchet there)

I wonder how Mega stars with millions of followers deal with haters since there are bound to be thousands or tens of thousands of them among the millions who follow them. Just as there is Day and Night, there will be Fans and Antis alike who follow your account, i think if you want to embark on a SNS journey you have to do it without a care of that others think so long as its not illegal or immoral in a sense. in the words of Nike "Just do it"

if the notification can be switched off, that'd be a great thing. or they can let other people handle their account for them

It depends on the person's mentality. Some people can take it and most can't. I imagine big stars like Beyonce probably don't even read the comments all that much, or realizes that there are just really dumb people on the internet, and doesn't take hate comments too seriously. Baek Ye Rin is a young star who is new to the spotlight. She'll gain thick skin eventually.

Winston thefabcat92 Tuesday, March 7, 2017

The thing is when they let someone handle the account for them it becomes like another "official agency account" read and managed by marketing people, and not someone personal like showing what they eat and personal activities. I think sometimes its dangerous to reveal too much of your private life on SNS if you suddenly regret it and want to be "left alone" again, because people will know too much about you, what you like to eat, where you live, who you hang out with and such.

Winston TryBrain Tuesday, March 7, 2017

Thats what i mean, when you start on this journey you have to accept that you are askin to SHOWING your diary to the world, and not everyone in the world is "nice and friendly" and like what you say. if you are worried, then you should set the account private instead of public. and only permit a small amount of people to view it, and edit the list slowly so that only fans are included.

SNS sites should make signing in with full name a must. I think that will lessen the abuses.

kpoplolita manongja Tuesday, March 7, 2017

Full name and your photo has to be directly photographed from the computer with which u logged in (so they can track the users up address) also the websites camera will take the photo directly to their facial detection features otherwise it won't click Muahahahaaah o the internet would be so boring

I hate that singers have to go through this for literally no reason. People who post such comments need to get a good look at their own lives before they criticise others about theirs. Shame JYP won't do anything.

emmasyl Tuesday, March 7, 2017

I find it funny that there are people out there putting strangers down, like how?... She's been a normal singer to me and still there are hate comments about her.
