Netizens say it may have been awkward for Wonwoo after seeing Taeyeon and Key at Seventeen's concert


A few years back, Seventeen's Wonwoo was in the spotlight as netizens discovered that he had once been active as a Girls' Generation's anti-fan leaving hateful comments about the girl group members before his debut.

Then, it was recently revealed that Taeyeon and Key had attended Seventeen's concert that took place in Seoul from June 25 to the 26th.

After seeing this, netizens gathered in an online community to discuss how awkward it must have been for Wonwoo to meet a Girls' Generation member.

One netizen began the discussion in the post titled, "A celebrity who met a malicious commenter," and wrote, "Girls' Generation's Taeyeon attended Seventeen's concert. I feel like Wonwoo would have wanted to run away. How would he face Taeyeon after leaving malicious comments about her? It would be too embarrassing." 

Other netizens commented, "He has nothing to say even if he's criticized for that forever," "This is why kids shouldn't be on the internet. If kids are on the internet when they're too young, they do irrational things on it and it's not good for them or others," "How did he even perform because of the embarrassment?," and "It must have been so awkward to face Taeyeon after leaving malicious comments about Girls' Generation, lol."

Here's the apology letter written 6 years ago

[TRANS] 160509 Wonwoo's Handwritten Apology via Official Fancafe

Hello, this is Wonwoo

First off, I would like to apologize to everybody who was hurt by this issue.

I have decided to apologize rather than make excuses saying I did it because I was young or don't remember this.

Even if I wrote those posts when I was young, it was definitely something I wrote, so I want to apologize to SNSD*, SNSD* fans, and Carats who were hurt because of this. Also, I apologize to the members who have worked hard to become Seventeen.

If I think about it now, I have not been able to mature. I thought of the celebrities that came out on TV lightly and just threw those words out without thinking that it could actually hurt people. After I became a middle school student and started practicing to become Seventeen, I realized how much of a burden it was for someone to stand on stage. I learned that for one person to stand on stage, many people have to work together. I learned that people don't easily get to stand on stage and how much meaning there is to it after promoting as Seventeen. I have sincerely realized how amazing SNSD* are to be where they are now, and I have learned to respect them. Also, after receiving love from fans, I learned how much responsibility you need to do this job, and I came to respect (everybody who does it.). I have learned that one person's comment can affect many people. This is why I will reflect and reflect on my wrongdoings.

I will not ask for forgiveness. I just want to continue to reflect deeply for my faults, and apologize to SNSD*. I cannot lift my head up because I am so sorry for writing these posts without much thought, and I was very wrong now that I look back at it.

I will work hard not to disappoint anybody again. I will read every single criticism and advice pointed towards me and never forget it. Please continue to teach me. I am deeply sorry. I am sorry.

-Jeon Wonwoo

*t/n: He refers to SNSD as 'SNSD seniors'
