Some of the most popular comments under the post read,
- [+67,-7] That was actually the first time I saw someone criticizing Kang Dong-won’s appearance.
- [+64,-14] Rosé’s fans didn’t even mention the dating rumor because we wanted to protect her privacy? I’ve never seen fans swear at the other person. At that time, it was not Rosé’s fans who criticized him for being old because of the big age gap, and at that time, most of the fans responded that it didn’t matter if Rosé was happy, we were surprised that the other person was someone we really couldn’t think of, and we didn’t want to talk about her private life. And along with the dating rumor, other fandoms made malicious rumors about Rosé and publicized them, so we were busy covering them.
- [+66,-77] The reality is that Kang Dong-won is very handsome, has a good physique, is talented, and has a good career. Only the Southeast Asian fans bragging about them not wanting to waste their unnie.
- [+60,-3] You ladies in your 40s are crazy, leave the female idols alone. Lol whenever a dating rumor with a big age gap breaks out and the man is older, everyone from the girl’s side will criticize the man. Not only Kang Dong-won, but other male celebrities were also criticized. Suddenly, it looks like it was just Rosé’s fans. In the opposite, since it was Kang Dong-won, people rather sexually harassed and cursed at Rosé. What are you talking about?
