After coming under fire in Korea for allegedly liking an Instagram post showing Korean ELFs being slapped, the original poster has admitted that Sungmin’s wife, Kim Saeun, did not like the post at all.
A group of Super Junior fans recently took to the group’s DC Inside Gallery to announce that they will be boycotting Sungmin and his promotions if he is to continue promoting with Super Junior
News then came out of Kim Saeun, Sungmin’s wife, liking several posts on Instagram supporting fans who hoped her husband would remain with the group for their upcoming promotions.
One photo, in particular, caught everyone’s attention as it showed Korean ELFs being slapped by international fans for demanding Sungmin to be removed from the group.
However, the user who posted this picture has apparently admitted that Saeun never, in fact, liked the post, and any pictures of Saeun liking this post were photoshopped or edited.

So while many fans were enraged by Kim Saeun’s actions, it turns out they may have been misled, and she did not like this post at all.
Following the announcement of this boycott by fans, Label SJ, the exclusive label for Super Junior under SM Entertainment, has announced that they will be holding a conference with fans to discuss the matter at hand.
