Divisive times indeed.

Hani (Ahn Hee-yeon), an actress from the group EXID, while validating the voting for the 20th presidential election on SNS, is being criticized.

On the 9th, Hani posted a photo of her voting stamp on the back of her hand along with the caption, "It was a very difficult time" on her sub-account on her Instagram account on the 9th.

Various speculations arose about his writings. Netizens agreed that it was unnatural for Hani to end her post with 'this time' which in Korean is pronounced as "number 2". Some interpreted the phrase 'this time' to mean support for the "number 2" candidate, Yoon Seok-yeol.

As the criticism grew, Hani added the phrase “voting” after “this time”. However, Hani's post spread to the online community and became a political controversy, and Hani eventually deleted the photo.

In addition to Hani, a number of celebrities are being witch-hunted because they are accused of supporting President-elect Yoon. MONSTA X's Minhyuk was accused of using the 'Red Heart' emoticon on his fan cafe as 'No. 2'.

SF9's Dawon was misunderstood by changing her private messenger ID to '2 Sang-hyeok' (real name Lee Sang-hyeok changed to 2).

In response, Minhyuk publicly expressed his displeasure. He said through Pencafe, "Don't give meaning to things that are useless," he said. "It's a waste of time. Just look at it as it is. I've told you several times that you don't talk about politics because you're an idol, but don't tie it up with me. You don't have any thoughts and you never talk outside even if you have beliefs. do," he said.
