An old video of Jang Wonyoung (IVE) is receiving divided opinions.
After debuting again with IVE, Jang Won-young has continuously been involved in controversies over bad attitudes and poor-mannered expressions. Many people call Jang Won-young “controversial idol of KPOP’s 4th Gen” because every time she appeared at public events, she would cause a stir and draw mixed reactions.
Recently, an old video of Wonyoung suddenly went viral again on the Internet. This was when IZ*ONE won the No.1 trophy at SBS’s “The Show” in February with the song “FIESTA”. While IZ*ONE members were going downstage after finishing the encore performance, Kang Hye-won suddenly dropped the small bag of paper flowers, which was the gift from The Show staff to IZ*ONE members to congratulate them on winning No.1.
Immediately after seeing the paper flower bag on the floor, Wonyoung picked it up and brought it backstage for her member. This small action of Wonyoung gathered many compliments from fans.
Fans believed that this action has proved Jang Won-young is really polite and nice, unlike the rumored bad personality. The female idol can definitely leave it on stage and the staff would solve it. However, she picked it up and took it with her right away, proving that Wonyoung really cherished the gift as well as the hearts of The Show staff. Fans claimed that Wonyoung is a lovely girl and she deserves more love other than netizens’ criticism and picky eyes.
However, many people think that this is just a small, normal gesture. Netizens think that fans are trying to whitewash Wonyoung and that her act of bending down to pick up things is not worthy of being praised as “good personality”. Following a string of recent scandals involving Wonyoung, netizens believe she needs to show more in order to acquire non-fan affection.
- I liked Wonyoung at first sight so I can’t hate her no matter what.
- That’s normal behavior, don’t try to whitewash her.
- She needs to try to show her good sides more.
- Anyway, I still hate her. Fans please stop claiming that she has a good personality. Apparently she’s a mean girl!
