Netizens recently expressed their disapproval through negative responses to news of SM Entertainment male group EXO hosting Korea’s first ever dome concert.
Earlier, we reported that EXO will be making history by being the first group to host a dome concert in the Seoul Gocheok Dome Baseball Stadium. Although EXO will be going down in the history books, many netizens and fans of other idol group showed disapproval for allegedly using that fact as ‘noise marketing’ in order to promote the concert. The Seoul Gocheok Dome Baseball Stadium finished its construction this 2015, and many netizens claim that it isn’t fair for EXO to promote their concert by mentioning it as if EXO would be making an incredible accomplishment. They argued that EXO will be the first group to host a concert in a dome only because there weren’t any domes in South Korea in the past.
Here are some of the negative netizen reactions below.
[ +8931 / -2469] It’s only because the dome just finished its construction.. I don’t think mentioning this as an accomplishment is fair or ethical. If there was a dome in Korea before, TVXQ and BIGBANG would have already hosted their concerts there.
[ +6783 / -2195] It’s only because Seoul Gocheok Dome Baseball Stadium just finished its construction.. That’s why EXO will be the first ever…. So this accomplishment doesn’t really feel like an amazing accomplishment at all…
[ +4903 / -2613] Aigo….. This is meaningless……
[ +541 / -50] There was a dome in Korea?
[ +472 / -41] This is not much of an accomplishment…
However, other netizens have responded to these negative comments in defense.
[ +4610 / -1383] Why are you mentioning Big Bang in an article about EXO…?
[ +978 / -206] There are kids that leave bad comments about any male or female idols… They are hopeless, so don’t mind them and fighting!!
[ +964 / -263] EXO’s class of their anti-fans getting to the news and spreading it! Thank you for so much attention. And EXO also hosted concerts in Tokyo Dome.
[ +592 / -224] Other group fans are so jealous hahahahahahaahahahahahahahahaha
