Will Kim Hyun Joong ever be able to win netizen’s favor after all that happened?
On September 11, Kim Hyun Joong departed from Gimpo airport to Tokyo for his concert with the BIO-RHYTHM 2019 tour. There he was greeted by reporters and fans who waited for him.
Kim Hyun Joong flashed a big smile to the press and to fans and waved at them. You can check out video of his arrival at the airport below.
Various Korean news outlets covered this story and posted photos of his smile. On Nate, an article titled “Kim Hyun Joong ‘the half-moon eye smile of the original flower boy’” gained lots of attention and negative comments from some netizens.
Here are some of their comments:
“What a scary person.”
“Attack on the butthole.”
“Today, the anal attack, here we go.”
“It’s really crazy that behind that innocent smile there were such texts.”
“You look like a scary person.”
“Trying to hit someone else again?”
“He became an Ahjussi (middle-age man)”
“Where’s your son?” and many more.
Kim Hyun Joong has been in a huge controversy with his ex-girlfriend who is also the mother of his child. She accused him of many things that still haunt him to this day. During the entire legal public battle, many netizens stopped supporting him and heavily criticized him. He hasn’t been able to recover his image in South Korea ever since.
Even after the trial was finished and a verdict was reached, the damage to Kim Hyun Joong’s public image has already been done. He’s now more active overseas, and his comeback drama performed extremely poorly in ratings.
