Soojin Fans Bombarded Seo Shin Ae with Malicious Comments Demanding her to Clarify Position against the (G)I-DLE member
In the comment section of Seo Shin Ae's SNS platform, supporters of the idol said,
"Soojin said she had nothing to do with the actress and even bet her withdrawal. She strongly said that she wanted the actress to announce her official position. [Shin Ae] only posted with an English phrase, lyrics, and sentimental post on Instagram, pretending as if she were the perpetrator. Why did you do that?", followed with mass-protesting comments.
Some fans also commented, "Why are you silent? Why do you think you're good at this, skip it, and aim for timing, but you're afraid you're going to be established?"
Adding, "I knew this would happen. LOL. You're going to make it obvious, and then you're going to go back and say it wasn't your story. I really didn't see it like that, but it's bad," they continued to attack the comments with words that seemed to confirm that the letter spread false information.
On the flip side, fans of Seo Shin Ae and netizens who are supporting the actress defended her by conveying, "Fighting, Shin Ae. Please know that more people are cheering for you," and "I'll be rooting for you, Shin Ae. I hope you always do well. I hope you are always comfortable and happy."
