Popular Korean YouTuber and makeup artist Ssin-nim has been under fire from netizens for what she said in her recent video. 

Though what Ssin-nim said was in a humorous manner and meant to entertain, many viewers, particularly EXO fans, deemed the joke inappropriate. This supposedly inappropriate joke was in Ssin-nim's recent Xiumin style makeup tutorial, during which she said, "Do you want to come over for some gaebul?" People had taken offense to this joke for its implicitly sexual nature, as gaebul (Urechis unicinctus) is synonymous to male genitalia. 

Viewers were greatly offended by this joke, so much so that Ssin-nim was eventually forced to remove the video altogether and even upload an official apology video on YouTube and Instagram.

Ssin-nim wrote, "Hello this is Ssin-nim. Firstly, I apologize for making everyone who watches my videos feel uncomfortable. As a creator, I believe that it is entirely my fault that I did not thoroughly examine and pay attention to the producing of my videos so that my efforts would not appear sloppy. I have permanently deleted the video in question. I was not wholly responsible as someone who runs a YouTube channel with nearly 1 million subscribers. I did not pause to think about the viewpoints of my audience, particularly those of minors, young people, and the artist's fans, in my ambition to create more fresh, funny content that will satisfy everyone. I will use this incident as a lesson to peruse, be more responsible, and think more carefully about my choice of words and behavior in the process of producing content. I sincerely apologize once again."

EXO-Ls felt uncomfortable about that jokes. That was inappropriate, because Xiumin never spoke like that. He's kind of a shy and quiet person. So she apologized, and EXO-Ls are seems fine now. The most of the fandom don't even know about this. Only non-fans make a "big deal" about this. Let's move on. Anyway nobody will even remember this (ecxept antis, sometimes I think they know all about EXO better than me).

This is so true. I didnt even know this, But EXO-Ls yet to blame. Poor fandom...

L_catzzz Saturday, May 21, 2016

Exo-Ls are back at it again 👍

Not the EXO-Ls. Just the EXO-Lames.

Look at @creepyweirdo comment above. It's Exo-Ls alright. They got a point though about that she's being a public figure and what she said is inappropriate for her younger viewers, but then again they way they coming at her is well...TOP NOTCH 👍

I don't think you all understand the actual reason why she gets so much hate for what she did. As a popular YouTuber with almost 1 million subscribers who does makeup tutorials for Kpop stars she has a lot of young fans. So her sexual innuendos were very inappropriate ("Do you want to come over for some gaebul" "Do you want to drink some milk in my bedroom"). It doesn't matter that EXO-Ls write smutty fanfics. As a public figure she should have been careful. Sure, she does censor curse words but this went too far.

Isn't that what she said in her apology?

Unlikely because its the truth. Although it is basically all KPOP fans indeed.
