We build our fan “career” on supporting our idol. But at what point does it change from a healthy relationship into an unhealthy relationship? Is it really ok to support a criminal? What should we do?
This post contains discussions of assault and violence.
This part is easywait to hear the truthor so it seems. But are we really hearing the truth? And how do we work that out? If we don’t speak the language, what if it’s a mistranslation? We must be careful.
Currently, NUESTs Baekho has been accused of sexual assault, and netizens have a variety of opinions on this matter. Waiting for the facts means just that- the facts of this particular case. Often fans note unrelated past casesfor example “Oh, there have been so many accusations lately…” as a kind of evidence that something may or may not be true or false. While repeated accusations against the same person could indeed lead back to guilt, we don’t know for sure and it should be investigated properly. This doesnt mean you cant be suspicious, but that you need to be very careful about whether you voice it, and if you do, how you voice it. In some instances, a question can be far more effective than a statement.
