A netizen unlocks childhood memories with Super Junior's Yesung

AKP STAFF

Super Junior's Yesung gained attention for his wholesome childhood. 

Recently, there have been numerous school bullying controversies involving various Korean celebrities. Many netizens have stepped forward, claiming they were victims of certain celebrities' bullying in school. Super Junior's Yesung, however, gained attention for a completely different reason. 

On February 23rd, a post titled "I played gonggi with Yesung many times(graduation picture attached)" made its way around the web. The post says, "I used to play gonggi(Korean traditional game involving marbles) with Yesung... He was my gonggi rival. He was a good kid. We kept in touch until high school, saying he made it to SME via Damoim. Guess I'll never see him again? I'm still rooting for you tho."  


Netizens commented: "lol I had to smile because his graduation photo looks so pure"

"lmao Damoim and gonggi lol There can't be any more accurate proof that the op is his classmate" 

"Well I can tell he does have a face of a kid who is a master at gonggi lol"

"Damoim sent me lol"

"What is Damoim?"

"Ah the good old days"

Just in case anyone is confused by the troll claiming Yesung did black face and is racist, here's the actual story: in 2013 SuJu did a thing were they all dressed as super heros. Yesung wasn't with them because of military service, but wanted to participate too. So he posted a photo dressed as Nick Fury on social media. Yes he painted his skin dark to look like the current version of Nick Fury everyone knows. He did not do any of the other weird make up that was part of actual black-face meant to be a caricature of black people. It was just a costume of a character that happens to have dark skin. No different than when he painted his skin white to dress as a vampire. Maybe not a smart choice by American standards, but he's not American and doesn't have the same sensitivity. I see nothing wrong with it.
