I’m thinking about this Chun vs fan video and I may have hit the nail on the head ( or I could be wrong, who knows).
Follow my train of thought people.
You’re an idol. It’s late at night. You’re trying to get into your house. You’re being prevented from doing so by crazed sasaeng fans. Fans that stalk you day and night; fans that follow you around in taxi’s; insane car rides through the city streets at night that could potentially cause accidents ( remember what happened to Princess Diana?)
They crowd you; pushing and shoving; cameras in your face; shouting out at you. Suddenly you are hit. Instinctively you defend yourself by grabbing your attacker.
What would you have done? Be hit? Would you have defended yourself? What if you asked the person to stop touching/hitting you and they didn’t stop?
Is this really an issue of a man hitting a girl and it wasn’t right, even if she hit him first?
Sometimes I think people choose to discredit Chun because he’s got that “bad boy” reputation. He’s the “greasy” one.
Well, what if it had been another member of DBSK? What if gentle Yunho or sweet Junsu hit the girl? What if it was Jaejoong?
Would you have been shocked? Would you drop them like a hot potato and call them a douche or would you pull the “oppa didn’t mean it” card?
I don’t condone violence. Men shouldn’t hit women. Human beings shouldn’t hurt each other.
But if in fact she struck first, I understand his “knee jerk reaction.” Is it ok for her to hit him, possibly injure him? No.
Did he kick her or punch her? No. If he had really hurt her, she would have had all the rights in the world to press charges.
This incident occurred 3 years ago. I was in fandom three years ago. I never heard one word about this. I think if Yoochun had “assaulted” the girl, we would have all known about it. Lord knows that whenever an idol is caught doing something bad, we all hear about it.
This whole incident was unfortunate. It shows that some fans are mentally unstable and that some idols are ill-equipped to handle the pressure of fame and fortune. I firmly believe that idols should have counseling and anger management. I don’t know if they do; it was pointed out to me that in Asia, mental health issues are not discussed and kind of shoved under the rug. I don’t know if this is true, but it was what I was told.
From early ages they train with the hopes of becoming famous. Their lives, while envied by many, are quite sad at times. A human being can just take so much before he or she has a melt down.
I don’t know about you, but if somebody slapped me, I’d slap them back.
You can take what I’ve said any way you want. Maybe you think I’m defending Chun because he’s my bias. But there have been lots of troubled idols and their fans have defended them.
Leeteuk, Shindong, Kangin, Kikwang, Daesung and Jay Park. All have done or said something bad. We don’t even know what Jay did! Even Jaejoong had a dwi.
But their fans have defended them and stood by them.
So what makes you think I should not stand by Park Yoochun?
Anyone who claimed to have been his fan but now say he is a douche and the “Chris Brown” of K Pop was never his fan to begin with.
At this point, I expect to lose followers. I’m sorry. However, I know that many of you will stand by me.
This is just another attempt in a long line of attempts to discredit JYJ.
Sorry to burst your bubble antis and haters, but JYJ isn’t going anywhere but up.
