Fans are in disarray over fan page accounts of SHINee’s Jonghyun and SEVENTEEN’s Wonwoo

A fan page dedicated to SEVENTEEN’s Wonwoo received criticisms as it was accused of taking the same fan page owned by SHINee’s Jonghyun’s fans. 

On November 3rd, a number of tweets posted by SHINee’s Jonghyun’s fan page “GUILTY PLEASURE” highlighted an issue where another page of the same name was made for SEVENTEEN’s Wonwoo.

The original fan page name of “GUILTY PLEASURE” reached out to the administrator of Wonwoo’s fan page saying, “I’ve been running my fan page for 5 years with affection. It took a lot of consideration to contact you. Please consider it once more.” 

The fan page dedicated to Wonwoo then explained that the account was mainly created to share pictures and revealed that it was only launched as the name suited the singer.

The rest of the conversation mostly came from Jonghyun’s fan page administrator which then on explained that despite reaching out to Wonwoo’s fan page administrator, the issue remains unresolved. It was also explained that the fan page has been run for the past five years and the issue was only brought up to avoid confusions amongst fellow fans, further asking the other account owner to consider their sentiments.

The tag “GUILTY PLEASURE” remains a sensitive topic amongst fans of SHINee as the line represented Jonghyun’s solo album of the same name. It can be recalled that during his promotions, Jonghyun inked the tagline on his back, earning necessary evidence.

The incident also raised another debate over local Korean fans and international ones as they continue to argue over the use of the tagline.

“This isn’t something that goes away because you ignore it can we get a response?”

“I do not want to mess up my time line with such problems and I am sick and tired of talking to you. I wanted to be nice and like you said it wasn’t a word that I came up with”

“So I was asking nicely. I wanted to cherish my bias’s precious moment and started this account and I’ve been running it for 5 years. When you’re making such a page doesn’t it make sense that you should probably search the names first?”

“I don’t care if your idol knows you or not. To me my fanpage and my idol is important. I don’t like hearing that I’m a copy because of you.”

“If you’re going to try to ignore this until it goes away I won’t stand and let this pass. If you can search on Naver and from the way you tweet your Korean is at a good level”

“So don’t try to make excuses saying that you’re a foreigner. If you search in Naver it comes up as related keywords. If you need help ask around or use google translate. Although from the way things look you probably won’t need to.”
