Oh, you crazy EXO fans (not to get them confused with the perfectly normal EXOtics), what trouble are you looking to find?
A bunch of ill-mannered fans completely started bashing Taeyang’s dance music video for his new single “Ringa Linga“.
They said that the filming style for Taeyang’s MV was too similar to EXO’s, and that even the dance became very similar from the 2-minute mark onward.
Seriously people? Leave Taeyang’s video alone.
First off, EXO didn’t invent the one-shot camera, so yes Taeyang is allowed to use that similar filming style for his video.
Second, the choreography in Taeyang’s “Ringa Linga” song is completely different from EXO’s.
You crazy people have got to stop going around and starting these fan wars. EXO has already gotten into enough trouble due to their fans’ crazy antics. There are A LOT of fandoms that hate them, not because of something these boys did, but because of what their fans do.
Even the general Korean public has gotten a negative image of EXO due to their fans misbehaving and causing trouble for everyone else.
Here’s what netizens are saying about this situation, provided by NetizenBuzz:
1. [+37, -0] The one take was first used with Big Bang’s Love Song MV… please don’t talk as if EXO patented the idea and came up with it themselves. By that logic, EXO is copying Big Bang then. Why would Taeyang even be copying EXO?
2. [+30, -0] Taeyang copying an EXO??? ㅋㅋㅋ Even a dog would laugh at that
3. [+23, -0] If they’re claiming that Taeyang copied EXO’s one take music video style, then EXO actually copied Big Bang because Big Bang has two one take movies with Love Song and Bad Boy… I swear, all of EXO’s domestic and international fans are trash… I hate EXO to the point where I feel like bugs are crawling all over my body when I think of them and I hate their fans that much more
“They’re fighting over this on YouTube too ㅋㅋㅋㅋ”
“I really have no words for EXO fans…”
“The one take technique is used a lot in video production.”
“Really, all of this just makes me laugh now..”
“Makes me so embarrassed as an EXO fan myself ㅠㅠ”
“I was already pissed off with YG over Youngbae apologizing for the MV delay but thankfully this gave me something to laugh about.”
“Never in my life did I think there’d be a day that Taeyang gets hated on for his dancing..”
“EXO fans talk as if ‘Growl’ is the first ever Korean music video to use the one take technique. Sigh..”
While were on this subject, stop bashing anyone and everyone who comes into contact with EXO. You bash Jaesuk for trying to imitate their dance on “Infinity Challenge“, you bash Jaesuk for having fun with them on “Running Man“, you bash Super Junior’s Ryeowook for singing with D.O, you bash any girl idol that steps within 5-feet of them… seriously, what is wrong with you people?
Hopefully EXO will be able to repair their image over the years. I would hate for them to spend their entire careers dealing with hate coming at them from every corner due to their crazy fans.
