Former KARA member Gyuri's tweet regarding social distancing has gained attention after it was discovered that she had visited a club in Itaewon where an individual with Coronavirus was present


Gyuri's tweet from April 28th states: "Tonight is a night where I have a lot of thoughts. I hope everyone gets better in this crisis and that we can meet when we're all healthy again." Gyuri had also donated 10,000 masks in March towards the Coronavirus relief efforts. 

Gyuri is said to have visited King Club in Itaewon on April 22nd, which was where patient 66 was present as well. Reports state that people in the club were not wearing masks or following social distancing protocols. Gyuri was also said to have performed on stage when KARA's "Step" started playing. Meanwhile, Gyuri apologized on her Instagram, stating: "I apologize for not keeping the rules that we are supposed to keep during the quarantine. I am sorry and am deeply reflecting. I was wearing a mask from when I entered the club till when I left. I got tested the day I saw the article about the outbreak, and I am self-quarantining after receiving a negative test result."  

Gyuri's Instagram is now set to private due to the backlash she's receiving. Comments include: 


"How could you go to a club at a time like this?"
"She' has no thoughts in her head."

"Her selfishness has shown itself through this pandemic."

Do you think netizens are overreacting?

I like Gyuri and she's not canceled by me, but "do as I say, not as I do" is not a good look either.

Other than this I can't think of a time Gyuri ever did anything scandalous. Teachable moment. I hope the media and netizens can eventually move on from this.
