On October 30, it was confirmed that actor Kim Joo Hyuk tragically passed away after a car accident. The day of the unfortunate loss happened to be on the same day of TWICE's comeback with "Likey". As Kim Joo Hyuk became a hot issue and dominated headlines, anti-fans of TWICE saw this as an opportunity to bait people to comment negative things about TWICE.
After doing some digging, netizens discovered that these so-called fans are actually anti-TWICE fans with extensive negative commenting history about the girl group.
These Anti-fans who posed as TWICE fans commented, "If he died from a car accident then he should be reported in the social news section. I don't understand why his news was released 3 minutes after TWICE made their comeback and released their new song. Is the government trying to prevent TWICE from getting bigger since it can be problematic when their societal influence becomes too powerful", "They couldn't write the news an hour later? Why overlap with the time of TWICE's new release.."
"Ah.. wtf.. Kim Jo Hyk.. -_-"
"Wtf.. he should've died an hour later ;;"
"Our TWICE babies made a comeback today. Can you please take down (Kim Joo Hyuk's) news for a day? TT"
Reading the insensitive comments by some of these Anti-fans, netizens in disbelief reacted, "People who are leaving malicious comments on Kim Joo Hyuk's news are mentally ill!! A person died...", "Sigh... crazy b*tches", "I'm speechless because this is so disgusting", "I thought I read it wrong... They're crazy", "They are just trash."
