K-pop and Korean entertainment from Korean fans' perspective

Western women prefer actors over idols because "idols look gay"?

Pann: Western women's reactions to Won Bin

(Pictures of SHINee and Won Bin)

"The guy on the right is really handsome."

"I'd rather look at five guys like on the right than the five guys on the left"

"He's so hot. The guy on the right."


1. [+133, -4] What did SHINee do to deserve this ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

2. [+54, -4] Of course, God Won Bin (I also love SHINee <3)

3. [+47, -65] What the fuck are they doing with innocent SHINee?

4. [+26, -3] Aside Won Bin, they also showed Song Seung Hun, So Ji Sub, and more actors and the women all chose the actors over the idols. They said they don't like the idols because "they look gay"

5. [+23, -4] SHINee is not at fault because SHINee is human and Won Bin is CG

6. [+20, -5] I'm not a fan of SHINee but Won Bin will win over any idol. Why are they comparing them?

7. [+17, -13] This is too much! What crime did SHINee commit ㅠㅠ They're only people who work hard ㅠㅠ The one who posted this is at fault!

8. [+15, -2] No. Instead of five Won Bins, we'll choose one Won Bin over a truck of idols

9. [+15, -4] Of course they'd choose the actors... Western women don't like guys who are skinny and feminine like the idols because they look gay. Only middle school and high school Asian girls fangirl the idols... This is the reality

10. [+12, -12] Isn't it obvious that a fan would get offended by this? The comments are judging, do you think we won't be pissed?

11. [+9, -2] I live in Washington DC. There are actually a lot of Western women who like Asians, especially Korean men. But those who like idols wearing skinny jeans, colorful hair, makeup, and pretending to be pretty are mostly young k-pop fans. Others don't like them because "they look gay" and prefer manly Asian guys. Muscular looks with a mustache like Cha Seung Won and So Ji Sub are popular

12. [+7, -0] The point of the video was 'Korean idols vs actors'. They picked Song Seung Hun, Jo In Sung, So Ji Sub, and Jung Woo sung and asked the women to choose them or the idols. The women all said they don't like the idols because they look gay and chose the actors. Won Bin especially got outstanding responses. The point of the video was Korea's attempt to export idols for hallyu, and proving that it's better to use the actors
