K-Pop idols have to deal with criticism and hate all the time, and some of them choose to be more “vocal” when it comes to these haters. Here are just a few times when idols chose to coolly clap back at their haters.
1. RM (BTS)
During BTS’s early days, there were lots of negative comments made about the group.
Rap Monster doesn’t look like an idol at all keke.

After reading these comments, RM had a simple message to the people who doubted him and the members.
I’ll prove it to you (haters) all.
2. Taeyeon (Girls’ Generation)
A malicious commenter once left comments calling Taeyeon “plastic”, and that she had multiple “failed surgeries”. Taeyeon decided to coolly respond to this comment.
“Ok, look in the mirror.”

Jiae had a simple message to people calling her boring.
If it’s boring, then get out!
4. Jamie Park
During a live broadcast, a malicious commenter left a comment to Jamie Park calling her a “gaesekgi”, which is a Korean curse word written out in English. Jamie decided to give a simple response to the comment.
5. Jackson (GOT7)
Jackson had a very positive response to those making negative comments about him.
[trending] #JacksonWang responds to a comment calling him a ‘Ching’ (an ethnic slur towards Chinese), urging people not to leave negative comments but instead to ‘stay positive and love more than hate’ ♥️#王嘉尔 #wangjiaer pic.twitter.com/lEwj1aOwPF

6. Suga (BTS)

7. Shuhua [(G)I-DLE]

There is something on your face; ugliness.

Just leave then!
8. Momo (TWICE)
Momo decided to clap back at her haters in quite a positive way.
They (haters) are jealous of me.
IU has never been afraid of taking legal actions against her haters. She even once gave a savage response to one of them.
In one of the victim’s letters of reflection, they said that their parents were about to get a divorce because of the rumors being spread about me, so I got confused for a second and thought, ‘What is this, am I really the criminal here?’ but oh well, I’m still going to press charges.
10. Jisoo (BLACKPINK)
Jisoo is someone who looks at malicious comments quite positively.
Online comments, they’re fun!
