Super Junior member Choi Siwon got himself into hot water yesterday when he liked a tweet regarding the Hong Kong protests that made Chinese netizens and his fans think he was supporting the movements. Since then, a lot of fans have criticized Choi Siwon for dragging down his members and are asking him to leave Super Junior. He subsequently unliked the tweet and issued a statement apologizing for his actions on Weibo. However, the damage was already done. Besides Chinese netizens, his own fans and Chinese E.L.Fs (name for Super Junior fans) have rallied to boycott him and his activities in China.

The following is the announcement of the closing of our bar.

Nobody or nothing can sway our standpoint. Regarding the love for our country, we will not have the slightest concessions. Yuan Bar started with little love and is now ending with big love.

Past, youth, goodbye.”

So let’s say goodbye to a part of my youth and dreams.”, “Really sad, it’s been 11 years, saying farewell to my youth.”

    1. I don’t know that the comment was, but I always worry people tend to jump to conclusions too fast.
      Indeed he has a right to his opinion and they have a right to boycott him because of it. What I would consider screwed up would be his company forcing him to apologise, because that does nothing, he should be entitled to his opinion and if he loses fans for it, boo hoo.

  1. Absolutely the most stupidest bullsh*t i have ever read!! WTF can you turn on someone so fast! Like seriously the fuvk like dont you dare ruin this for the rest of us fans and make him leave like you did sungmin! I swear you can not get a more kindhearted and honest man then siwon!
