oh the double edged sword that is the Internet. The puzzling reality of the existence of so many people who have nothing better to do than make a mountain out of a molehill~
Allkpop reported that in means of encouraging his fellow 2PM member, Jaebom, WooYoung had posted, “2PM, we’re not 7 members. We are One.” On his Cyworld on September 6th, he even posted a picture of the 7 members that was taken during a photoshoot, and set his homepage song to NRG’s “Friend.” But being the harsh netizens that they are, WooYoung’s homepage was bombarded with comments stating that he was only covering up for his own 2PM member. In reply, WooYoung deleted the encouragement he posted, which again stirred up more controversies. As of now, WooYoung’s mini-homepage does not have any new posts.
JYPE said, “Nothing has been planned in relation to Jaebeom’s schedule for now.”
How ridiculous is this??
And “gay” is not even a definitively derogative word. The dictionary meaning even stands for “happy”. Even if you use ‘gay’ in reference to people with less conventional sexual preferences, it’s only bad if you intend it to be bad. Soooo~ if people take this whole Jaebom thing negatively, aren’t they kinda slighting gay people too? And you kinda can get that American people use that term rather loosely too like in Jae’s Myspace he calls Korea ‘gay’ and then he calls his friend ‘gay’ too and I doubt he hates his friend. So i mean, surely Jae wasn’t attempting to write an epic lit text with wordplay on the many different meanings of the word ‘gay’. He’s just using a term familiar to him which might mean something but sometimes, or even usually, means nothing.
Chill out peeps~
