Jung Chaeyeon (DIA) received heavy criticism from Mingyu’s fans for joking with him.
Recently, controversy over the attitude of Jung Chayeon (DIA) with Mingyu (Seventeen) became a hot topic on the Pann forum.
A 1 minute video showing Jung Chayeon was fun to meet with Mingyu on the exit of cars at Inkigayo. She greeted the staff deliberately standing in the middle of the road, blocking Mingyu‘s car as the guy had to put his head out the door waving at her and asked her to hurry. At the end of the clip, Jung Chaeyeon got into the company car.
Many fans left comments admiring the close friendship behind the camera. It is known that Jung Chayeon and Mingyu are two of Inkigayo’s favorite MCs. The difference in height and body proportions of the two are often discussed by the netizens.
However, some of Mingyu’s fans seem to be annoyed by this action. They said that Jung Chaeyeon is trying to annoy Mingyu and blocking the way out of the parking lot. There has been heavy criticism towards Chaeyeon for this joke. Fans even question the relationship between Mingyu and Chaeyeon because they seem to be quite comfortable with each other.
In opposed to negative reacts from Mingyu’s fans, netizens are on Chaeyeon’s side:
- “Not a fan of any of them but I think they are just playing with each other because they are close friends, that’s it. Just watch their Inkigayo’s video and you’ll know. They joke and dance and whisper to each other all the time at Inkigayo’s backstage. I sometimes watch the show so I know.”
- “I usually watch Inkigayo so I know, they are joking as close friends, not that lover’s kind of jokes. Sometimes they fight, sometimes they play with each other.”
- “Okay, so the story went like this. Jung Chaeyeon was greeting the staffs when Mingyu’s car came. They both said hi and joked a little. Chaeyeon wasn’t blocking the road, okay? As you can see there’s another car in the picture and it was Chaeyeon’s. Don’t criticize her over things like this when you don’t even know the truth.”
- “Inkigayo’s parking lot is known to be slow…Why blame Chaeyeon for blocking the road? They are playing because they are close friends, that’s it.”
