I know he aimed this diss to womad and megalia (which we all agree they are trash) but he did not use the right words. He put every single woman on the same bag. It was really nice of him to think it was a satire but tbh I really think those are his words.

I may not agree with everything he says but he's not directly offending anyone unless they're womad, he's getting hated to this extent because his views aren't perfectly aligned to theirs.

San E's response to Jerry.K's diss track was to call him a WOMAD and dismiss him for pointing out the instances of gender inequality in South Korean society. Saying that he's only against WOMAD and Megalia is disingenuous when his response to people who disagree with him is to lump them into that group.

I personally don't know much about him but I hope people remember that some South Koreans take negative comments to heart and may try to harm themselves so maybe a little watchfulness in what's said.

It's a long story.

Last month, San E posted a video on his SNS related to the "Lee Su Station" assault case and people criticized him, claimed that the video could prove to be favorable in the male party's defense [allkpop post]. In response, he dropped a surprise track titled "Feminist" via his own SNS and YouTube, containing very direct lyrics about his opinions on feminism, current events, etc. Brand New Music stated that they were not made aware of the track and only found out about it after seeing his SNS post [allkpop post].

Rapper Jerry.K eventually made a diss track titled "No You Are Not" towards San E [allkpop post] and San E eventually made a counter diss track called "6.9cm" towards Jerry.K [allkpop post]. (LMAO)

Then, days ago, San E took the controversy further by making some remarks at Brand New Music's "Brand New Year" concert, saying "Are there WOMAD and Megalia here? I want to tell the WOMAD and Megalia members here something. You're not feminists. You're psychos... You're social evils". Brand New Music followed up with an official apology, stating, "We take responsibility for all the controversies at the 'Brand New Year 2018' concert. We also sincerely apologize for the discomfort felt by the concertgoers and artists due to this recent incident."

Even for those people that are neutral or even agree with him, what he's doing and how he's going about it is making people uncomfortable. Nobody goes to a San E concert to hear him rant about extremist groups, and it's going to make them want to keep avoiding him if he keeps killing the vibe of his own concerts to do that stuff.

Barely touched Irene once. Exposed feminist cunts who were making false claims and are under police investigation now. Both acts are either trivial or actually good. But in delusional Kpop world, he's pure evil...... /facepalm

If it makes you feel better, his MV has 116,193 likes and 25,918 dislikes. The people triggered by his video are most likely to go out of their way and hate on him. the rest of us just don't care that much.


After reading his lyrics, I think he failed to tackle the issue of why feminism is necessary. Likewise, most of us don't understand how feminism is actually like in the context of South Korea.
