Leeteuk Forced to Delete Tweets After Fan Backlash
Super Junior’s Leeteuk found himself in a sticky situation after he proclaimed that his ideal woman is actress Lee Min Jung.
On January 25, Leeteuk posted on his Twitter, “With Lee Min Jung nuna,” along with a picture taken at the “21st Seoul Music Awards.“
Leeteuk continued, “Lee Min Jung nuna, you were the presenter for the grand prize – I saw you on ‘Healing Camp‘ and though your face is beautiful, your mind is also beautiful so you became my ideal woman…”
Afterwards, many replies mentioning Kang Sora were made from the netizens. Leeteuk and Kang Sora are currently starring in “We Got Married” as a staged couple. Due to these kinds of replies, Leeteuk posted a new message with a slightly bitter and sarcastic tone, which expressed his uncomfortable feelings.
He said, “That picture of Lee Min Jung nuna was supposed to be funny but is it not? Well, now I am so-and-so’s fan! I guess I can never say it outloud. I am SuJu’s fan… happy? Well, my character gets criticized a lot anyway… it doesn’t matter…”
Finally, Leeteuk said, “Imagination allows us to develop while delusion hurts yourself and others around you. There are a lot of delusional people out there these days and the Internet isn’t always a good place.”
This became quite a hot topic amongst netizens and not too long after, Leeteuk deleted all tweets regarding this subject.
