Netizens find EXO's anti-fans panicking after reading SM's announcement about suing malicious commenters

EXO
Are anti-fans panicking after SM's announcement?

On October 26th KST, SM Entertainment announced that netizens who left malicious comments about their artists would be legally punished. Following the announcement, certain netizens went over to a popular forum known as a hub for many of EXO's anti-fans, where they found new posts reacting to the announcement.


On one post, an anonymous writer posted an entry entitled: "I don't want to be sued...". After capturing the post, the netizen shared it on another community site, where fellow K-netizens and fans saw the anti-fans' reactions. Netizens who saw the 'panicking' post expressed how "funny" and "gratifying" it was to finally see those commenters "getting a taste of their own medicine". 



Some comments looking back at the reactions include: "So hilarious. I'm sure all those anti's are going back to their own posts and deleting them all frantically", "LOL, I guess they don't even have self-esteem, to show their panic like that?", "Some are remaining silent though. All the funnier", "Some happen to be former fans (and current anti-fans) of EXO, though...wonder how they are feeling right now.



What do you think about this rising issue?

i did realise that exo have a lot of antis in korea

good for them to sue those haters, there is no excuse to write malicious comments

i can never understand why people write those comments anyway , just support your favorite in peace

you dont like someone? focus on someone that you like instead..

you dont like their fandom? 1- not everyone is the same

2-the group is not responsible for what few people do

Honest question guys. Why are people so bitter? I get that you don't have to like all kpop groups but is there a need to be an anti-fan. It takes so much work to hate. Yeah, some might do it out of boredom but many are true haters. There are groups and people that I don't like but I don't go and become an anti-fan. Its like a full time job.

I think the majority are young sheep. They haven't grown up enough to know how to behave and simply follow those before them. There are also no consequences online so the behaviour goes unchecked..until now at least.

im glad SM is taking a stand, but there needs to be drawn a line somewhere.


there has to be rules in place for this, as long as there arent, its a very morally grey area.

Well there are rules as the thing that allows SM to sue the internet trolls are Korea's defamation laws so any lawsuits would have to meet the criteria for defamation in Korea. That being said, I live in Korea right now and feel like the defamation laws here go too far as you can get sued, and lose, even if what you are saying is the truth. That's why when Beakho from Nu'est was being accused of sexual assault Pledis took the actions that they did instead of just suing the accuser. They wanted to be sure that Baekho was proven innocent as, even if they had just sued and won, that wouldn't have meant he was innocent.

that makes no sense to me, if its actually defamation, it cant be a truth that is proven.


thats not what defamation is.

I don't understand what you said. You said you could be sued if you said the truth but giving an example of an idol not proven guilty.

In Korea you can lose a defamation lawsuit even if you told the truth. So, if Pledis had just sued Baekho's accuser that wouldn't have proven him innocent, even if Pledis/Baekho won. So, instead they went through the police because that would require that Baekho be proven innocent. Basically they wanted to make sure that people knew that the accuser was lying and a lawsuit wouldn't do that in Korea.

I have never understood the need to spend a lot of time on articles or sites to hate on a group or celebrity. I mean, even ones that seem legitimate targets (Iron, say, or in the US, Woody Allen, or one of the Me Too! creeps) why spend time spreading hate? As for posting malicious and nasty posts simply because you don't like a group, or worse because another group is your favorite - that's simply juvenile and immature. I'm happy to see SM taking a firm stand against the antis :D

The world is becoming a sad place. People cant even voice their opinions without getting sued anymore :(. Unless they are threatning the idols,it is not a big deal. Idols come into this industry knowing that they will get hate,and they know they have supporters so if they only focus on the people that dont like them,then they shouldnt be in this industry in the first place. SM just using this as a way to get more money.

SM doesn't fuck around. I'm kinda glad. False rumors and trolls actually hurt idols and their money making potential. People on the internet seem to not know or care but SM is holding them accountable and i like that.

Actually, a REAL BENEFIT that the K-pop Agencies WANT and do GET out of these CYBER SLANDER PERP prosecutions, is a DETERRENCE EFFECT (hopefully). The IDEA is that you PUBLICIZE that it IS ILLEGAL to do this. And so, those that MIGHT consider to do it, think TWICE (Group?) ... ;) ... About ACTUALLY doing it!

there is a video on youtube were koreans were asked about exo and when asked why there are so many antifans one girl said exo is blocking the success of many kpop groups and fans from that groups want exo to go to the military service so that other groups can have a chance. exo is literally everywhere in korea.
