The perpetrators have replied to Hyunjin’s own Bubble messages with rude messages too. For instance, when he would send a selfie, they would reply with criticism of his appearance.

Most of all, Hyunjin has received harmful messages, including death wishes, on the app.

You’ll be fat if you keep eating, stupid

This is unfortunate since Bubble should be considered his “safe space.” But even without Bubble, he can’t escape the attacks across Stray Kids’ shared social media.

On Instagram, netizens have filled the comment section with disgusting comments about Hyunjin. STAYs are attempting to prevent it by reporting malicious accounts and commenting positive messages.

Several netizens also teamed up to “dirty” Hyunjin’s searches on Twitter so that his name will come up with negatively associated words.

Some STAYs suspect that the guilty party is primarily solo stans or akgaes. These are malicious fans that, rather than simply liking just one member of a group, also hate the other members.

Akgae (악개) is a K-pop fandom term for a fan who likes only one member of a music group and hates the others. It is an abbreviation of ‘akseong gaeinpaen’ (악성개인팬) or ‘malicious individual fan.’

STAYs are urging JYP Nation to take action against the cyber attacks on Hyunjin. They are calling for protection for the company’s artist.

STAYs are trending “#JYPEDoBetterForStrayKids,” “#JYPEtakaction,” and “#JYPEProtectHyunjin.”

STAYs are also mass emailing JYP Entertainment, requesting that the company take action on behalf of Hyunjin.

At the time, JYP Entertainment has yet to respond directly.
