Guys, don’t hang out with fans of a group that’s never even won a daesang award.. We’re of a higher class and our oppas have dignity…ha
Bikira my butt ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ How about you bikira away from that spot ㅡㅡ How dare you to covet that spot
(bikira means “move away”)
Bikira ㅋㅋㅋㅋ Yeah, you should bikira first. Go away before changing the name of someone else’s radio show. What a cool wordplay <3
Honestly it’s upsetting me. Don’t try to change Sukira’s name to Myunkira or Bikira;;
Bikira….? You need to bikira instead.. …

[+ 191, – 11] I honestly think it could be taken as offensive. They’ve guarded that name close to heart for 9 years. Even though it feels like the fans are taking it a bit too far….That just means that it’s that precious to them. I’m not supporting this fan war at all though.
[+ 174, – 5] This is what happened. Changseob said he wanted to do Bikira once and Eunkwang said if Ryeowook heard he might be offended..Then Changseob said I’m sorry it was just a joke. They said Bikira once. That’s when Super Junior fans began tweeting saying they were offended..Melodies retorted that it was only once that it happened and as a joke..They’re both at fault for bringing each other down.
[+81, – 135] They said a group that has never once won Daesang…they have no idea how hurtful that is to melodies…
