    April’s Jinsol Begs Fans to Stop Objectifying Her With Slow-Mo GIFs


    “When I search my name, a few of those always pop up, but I hate them so much.” – Jinsol

    April‘s Jinsol recently posted an Instastory pleading for fans to stop taking videos of her wearing revealing outfits and making them into slow-mo GIFs.

    The message reads as follows:

    [​IMG]

    People take videos of me dancing, walking, or running in short outfits or outfits that are extra tight and make them into slow-mo GIFs. Please stop doing that. When I search my name, a few of those always pop up, but I hate them so much.

    — Jinsol


    The post is currently trending online for how unfortunate it is that Jinsol had to make such a plea on her social media.

    As the youngest member of her group, Jinsol is currently 18 years old, and she debuted with April back in 2015 and is still active with them today.

    1. [+503, -56] These sex criminals have no problem sexually harassing a minor and then hating on her when she expresses that she doesn't like it...

    2. [+473, -63] It's wrong for people to do that but I also think her agency is a part of the problem for dressing a minor in such revealing clothes on stage

    3. [+349, -122] Stupid Korean men, they don't even know what the issue is

    4. [+62, -8] There are tons of sex criminals on some male community sites... it's disgusting

    5. [+54, -7] Yes, her agency is problematic for dressing her like that, but you can also help by not making those gifs. You guys are sex criminals;

    6. [+54, -13] It really is disgusting.. why do they do it?? Do you really want to make gifs like that of a minor..? I see some comments blaming her agency but you guys are a bigger agency. Stop mumbling about her agency to justify your own actions, it's vomit-inducing.

    7. [+53, -7] I bet all the comments whining about her agency having blame as well are 100% men

    8. [+40, -7] Why is she getting hate when she's just asking people not to make sexual gifs of her? ㅋ Korean men are amazing.

    9. [+23, -5] It's extremely brave of her to write something like this as a young idol... I don't know why anyone would want to do this to someone just barely 20 years old...

    10. [+19, -3] It's all over YouTube as well, there needs to be some kind of restriction on this stuff

    There's more popular idols who get a ton of these done to them but they never said a word in regards. OMG Arin probably had like 3x the amount of gifs Jinsol had, let alone more popular Big 3 female idols. I think her company may be doing some media play here. This is just going to get the creeps more excited to search or make them

    It's actually media play.
