Seoul — TVXQ’s Yunho has been facing backlash from netizens for being “hypocritical” about Covid-19 protocols. The singer recently made the news for allegedly fleeing the police after breaking social distancing rules at an illegal adult entertainment bar. Fans and netizens retraced the star’s past comments and called him an “extreme concept-er” for treating cautions against Covid-19 merely as a “concept”.
Yunho spoke with his fans on Instagram on Jan 17 KST during which he put on a mask indoors saying, “I strictly follow the social distancing rules vis-à-vis Covid-19 restrictions. I always put on a mask, even when I’m at home. You have to be careful even in your household. I always have a mask on.”
According to Allkpop, fans were amazed at the way the star had worn the mask even after showering and putting on his skincare. The video has become a cause of mockery as Yunho’s actions reported elsewhere have belied that image.
Some netizen comments include:
“I wonder if he wore the mask inside the private VIP rooms while drinking until near midnight lol”
“Emphasizing the mask thing too much makes it even more suspicious, as if he’s never worn it lol”
“I bet he was laughing at the netizens while saying all that stuff! haha”
“Um, even on ‘I Live Alone’ he wasn’t wearing a mask...”
