It is easy for anti-fans to show their hate with today’s technology, especially with the popularity of social networking services (SNS). Although stars would all agree that attracting anti-fans is not the best skill to have up their sleeves, there is a saying for stars who have yet to shine in the entertainment world: “Having at least anti-fans is evidence that you are being noticed.” However there are stars that earn much love while still not having any anti-fans. It is curious how these public figures can attract so many fans while keeping away the “common” anti-fans.
Actors Jang Dong Gun and MC Yoo Jae Suk are a few of the stars that fit into this category. With the appearance of a marble statue, Jang Dong Gun earns his popularity from putting his best effort into his acting rather than trying to take advantage of his good looking face. His lack of scandals and marrying the woman he’s known since 1998 (Go So Young) gave him a responsible image.
Yoo Jae Suk is famous for being Korea’s representative of having zero anti-fans. His character and skills helped him keep this spot for over 10 years. Not only do his skills on shows attract fans, but also his everyday actions as an average Korean citizen.
“4th Dimension” actresses Choi Kang Hee and Gong Hyo Jin’s lovable characters also make them immune from anti-fans’ hatred. Choi Kang Hee always gives 120% on her roles and continuously participates in community volunteering. Fans recently discovered that she was secretly helping an orphanage. Gong Hyo Jin expressed her independent and lovely charm through the drama “Best Love” as well.
A new rising star that fits into this category is Yoo Seung Ho. His fame began after the film “The Way Home” but it gradually increased as he expanded his acting career as a young adult. His “little So Ji Sub” image adds to the reason why he does not have any anti-fans, but his acting in films and dramas are the main cause for attracting fans.
Park Ha Sun, who is currently starring in “High Kick 3: The Short Legs Strike Back,” is also joining this elite group. The actress appealed with an elegant image as Queen Inhyeon in drama “Dong Yi” and was cast as a chic businesswoman in the film “The Most Beautiful Goodbye.” She is portraying her clumsy character well on “High Kick 3” with several scenes where she trips, falls, and dresses up as a silly clown.
A celebrity official stated, “There is a huge difference between being popular and having no anti-fans. Having no anti-fans whatsoever shows that fans can trust the star, rather than how well the star is known. That is why stars that continue to stay put where they are and carry on giving their best effort have a higher chance of having zero anti-fans. For example, Moon Hee Jun’s anti-fans disappeared after he came back from the military, while Ok Joo Hyun’s decreased after her appearance on “I Am A Singer.” Stars have to be especially careful in the current age with SNS being highly popular.”
