On December 26th, a controversial story made its way around a popular online community. Originally titled, "I divorced because of an idol", an anonymous netizen shared how he divorced his wife after she became a stan of Lee Jin Hyuk.
In the post, he revealed he is a 36 years old man who married a woman of the same age back in 2015 after being together for 5 years. He wrote the issue arose last year, and they filed a divorce this year. In a long post, he revealed details of how his wife has changed since she started to become a fan of the idol after watching 'Produce X 101'. He said he couldn't compete with her commitment to Lee Jin Hyuk. He also didn't hide his negative sentiment towards the idol in the post, which garnered mixed reactions from netizens.
Netizens reacted: "Oh... I hope this is just another marketing gimmick"
"I can feel your distress just by reading your post. Keep your chin up and start fresh. Honestly, I'm glad you divorced her soon enough."
"I understand your frustration but you shouldn't call Lee Jin Hyuk names. He didn't do anything wrong and this is on the Internet where everyone, including his current fans and himself, can read."
"You really shouldn't blame your divorce on Lee Jin Hyuk. She seems like a person who would have obsessed over someone sooner or later regardless of who she stans."
