Even though it was supposed to be a happy occasion, some NCTzens, the official fandom name of NCT, were disappointed by a remark Jeno made towards his fellow member Haechan. In the video, Haechan asks Jeno, “Why are you so muscular?” and Jeno replies, “Why do you have so much flesh?

Haechan could only make an incredulous face and say, “Gosh.” Some fans took to Twitter to express their disappointment and anger towards Jeno, saying he should know not to body shame his friend.

Others said Jeno should have accepted the compliment of Haechan sincerely instead of making a joke about his appearance.

There were NCTzens who believed that Jeno should be held accountable for his actions so that incidents like this won’t be repeated.
