Korean netizens have mixed opinions over IZ*ONE member Kang Hye Won's "littering"


Korean netizens have been in discussion since a netizen posted a gif of the recent actions of IZ*ONE's Kang Hye Won

In the gif that was posted, IZ*ONE is seen at a music show, and the members were each given a plastic bag with confetti. After the members were done using the confetti and were making their way off the stage, member Kang Hye Won threw her plastic bag on the floor of the stage.


Shortly after, member Jung Won Young is seen picking up after all the members and picking up the plastic bags.

After seeing this short clip, many Korean netizens have been in discussion about this matter. The netizen who made the post on asked the Nate pann online community to take a vote if Kang Hye Won is seen as rudely throwing away garbage in contrast to Jang Won Young being kind and picking them up.

The original poster asked fellow netizens to vote thumbs up if they think Kang Hye Won is being rude and vote thumbs down if they think it doesn't matter since the staff will clean it up.

So far, there have been close to 2,000 votes who agree that Kang Hye Won seems a bit rude (thumbs up) while only 177 Korean netizens think it doesn't matter (thumbs down). However, many Korean netizens are in fervent discussion on the matter as many netizens comment that the staff probably told the members to throw it on the floor.

Netizens' Commented:

"I mean, it does seem like she just threw it on the floor and doesn't care."

"I don't think the staff gave her those plastic bags to throw them on the floor."

"The staffs' job is to clean up the stage after the idol members. So it doesn't matter."

"I work at a broadcast station, and the staff cleans up the stage after each idol, so there are a lot of idols who leave garbage on the stage. It's normal."

"From what I know, Kang Hye Won is nice and works at a shelter for dogs. So whatever. I don't think she was rude."

"Well, this isn't a problem, but it does show a person's character. From the looks of it seems like Won Young is a good person."

This is disrespectful and you shouldn't do this but you can't judge a person based on just this.

You don't drop shit on the floor PERIOD. So what someone will clean it after? Some respect maybe? You throw trash as you walk because someone will clean it anyway? Yes, there was a lot of confetti and it would be clean right after but that doesn't mean you should add work to someone who's cleaning it especially when her confetti bag had some that could be reused. Americans will not understand things like respect etc. so maybe for you it is not a big deal.

Wonyoung is not only beautiful and talented but also smart, I love how she behaved in this situation.
