CIX Bae Jin Young is isolated by group fans because he was a Wanna One member? Shocking videos revealed
Suspicions that Bae Jin Young is being “bullied” by CIX fans were recently raised.
Videos of Bae Jin Young getting booed by fans during overseas tour performances are spreading on SNS sites and various online communities, sparking a controversy.
In the video, whenever it came to Bae Jin Young’s turn to talk, fans began to chant other members’ names. Bae Jin Young couldn’t continue his talk until the end and showed a serious face. The controversy intensified as the member standing next to Bae Jin Young was seen smiling.
Overseas fan A shared the video and claimed, “I was so upset by fans’ rudeness towards Jin Young”, adding “They kept cursing at Jin Young every time he opened his mouth”.
According to testimonies from fans at the concert, this phenomenon continued throughout all the performances. Some fans revealed that when Bae Jin Young appeared on the stage, the crowd was silent. Some booed the male idol and shouted the names of other members loudly, causing Bae Jin Young to feel embarrassed.
A insisted that it was because Bae Jin Young used to be active in Wanna One. Bae Jin Young was a member of Mnet’s “Produce 101 Season 2” project group Wanna One. The group consisted of Kang Daniel, Park Ji Hoon, Lee Dae Hwi, Kim Jae Hwan, Ong Seung Woo, Park Woo Jin, Lai Kuanlin, Yoon Ji Sung, Hwang Min Hyun, Bae Jin Young and Ha Sung Woon. At that time, Wanna One was very famous in Korea and overseas. The group even won Daesang and Rookie of the Year at the same time.
However, after Wanna One’s contract period ended, the group was disbanded. Wanna One members returned to their respective agencies. Bae Jin Young debuted again in CIX with other trainees under his agency C9 Entertainment.
While other Wanna One members made solo moves or joined groups with more than 2 members from “Produce”, Bae Jin Young was the only “Produce” member in CIX.
According to Bae Jin Young’s fans, the male idol has been rejected by the group’s fans since a long time ago. They claimed that other members’ ignorance of the situation also added to the cold attitude of fans towards Bae Jin Young.
In another video, Bae Jin Young was seen getting hit by water bottles thrown by fans during CIX’s overseas tour last year.
In response to this, Internet users angrily commented, “Isn’t Bae Jin Young the most famous member of his group? I was shocked to hear this”, “I think it would be better if Bae Jin Young leaves the group and becomes a solo artist”, “This breaks my heart”, “Isn’t throwing bottles at someone a violent act?”, “It’s like he’s being bullied”, etc.
