Rapper Kim Jae Ha from 'High School Rapper 4' asks fans to stop treating him like an idol


Rapper Kim Jae Ha asked fans not to treat him like an idol.

On April 3rd, Kim Jae Ha from the Mnet competitive survival music show 'High School Rapper 4' shared two photos on his Instagram story.

In the photos that the rapper posted, fans left numerous comments saying, "Jae Ha, congrats on releasing 'Life Like 18' a year ago. Hope you continue down a flowery road"  with various heart emoticons.

The rapper took a capture of the comments and added the caption, "Please stop this." Then in the second photo, he uploaded the captions "Please do not treat me like an idol. Please only love my music." 

It seemed the young rapper was overwhelmed by the love and interest that his fans have shown recently. However, a few netizens criticized Kim Jae Ha for his rash decision to ask his fans to stop cheering for him in a certain manner. Netizens commented, "The fans were leaving comments just to cheer for you and show their support. Aren't you being too much?"

Other netizens criticized the rapper for sharing the usernames and profile photos of the fans who left those comments on his social media page without covering them. Still, there were netizens who argued, "It's his own freedom to say what he wants," "He probably felt overwhelmed," and "He might have not liked fans flooding his social media with the same comments over and over again."

Meanwhile, Kim Jae Ha is appearing on the fourth season of 'High School Rapper' and has made it to the semi-finals.

i mean it's ok if you feel uncomfortable with their comments but at the end of the day they're just trying to show their support, some idols or singers would love to see these kinds of things because it shows how much people actually love their music and that they're not in the celebrity life for no reason, as i said i get that people will feel uncomfortable with these kinds of things but i do agree with the netizens he was being to rash\harsh when he said that.

I would actually have to agree with netizens this time. He more than likely felt overwhelmed and frustrated. There are a few. idols who actually are vocal when they get comments lije this. To them, I feel it's like they appreciate the support and attention, but a lot of celebs/famous people actually want to interact with fans. And if the entirety of their comment section is filled with nothing but the same phrase, they can't really react. It'll almost become robotic in response.

On the other hand, there are a lot of rappers that do feel it's cool or trendy to hate on idol rappers for some reason.

SMTM was interesting in that it also showed a lot of the rappers who hate on idol rappers that actually couldn't handle the whole performance. A lot of rappers nowadays even in America get famous on the internet without having to tour or really know anything about performance.

I love this singer named Summer Walker and she is just not a performer.
