AOA’s Jimin and Seolhyun have recently been swept up in some unfortunate controversy after they showcased a lack of historical knowledge on a televised quiz show. The girl group members received some backlash for not knowing a vital piece of information in Korean history, inciting the criticism of K-netizens.
During the interview portion of AOA’s album showcase, Jimin and Seolhyun shed tears as they apologized to their fans and the public for their lack of historical knowledge. Rapper Jimin relayed, “I’m sorry for disappointing you.”
However, despite the waterworks, it seems like K-netizens were less than impressed, as they continued their harsh criticism online, commenting that the girls shouldn’t be promoting if they’re genuinely reflecting on their actions.
What do you think of this situation? Do you think the girls deserve the harsh criticism, or do you think K-netz are going overboard with this situation?
