Former Wonder Girls member Yeeun aka HA:TFELT has shared a few DMs
she’s been receiving and its shocking, to say the least.
Recently, HA:TFELT shared a couple of the direct messages she’s received on her Instagram stories. Some of the DMs read, ‘Yoon Suk Yeol won though. I saw you on broadcast, you looked like a disabled person,’ ‘Yoon won, no matter how hard you struggle,’ ‘what to do? Lee lost [referring to the other Korean presidential candidate], because of people like you, I went to vote, you worked hard,’ and more.
HA:TFELT put her own messages on top of those screenshots, she wrote, ‘why I became a feminist,’ adding, ‘its because of these people who ignore women, mock them and endlessly harass them and gain satisfaction from it.’
But why is she getting such malicious messages?
HA:TFELT has openly said she was a feminist multiple times on broadcast, she talked about women’s issues in South Korea and continues to advocate for women’s rights on her social media as well. Her approach attracted anti-feminist men who believe feminists are extremist, Following the victory of conservative anti-feminist Yoon Suk Yeol, many men DM-ed her about the victory.
The newly elect-president Yoon Suk Yeol has famously called for the Ministry of Gender Equality and Family to be abolished. He also blamed the country’s low birth rate on feminism.
What do you think of this?
