On April 20th’s episode of JTBC’s Love of 7.7 Billion, Kim Hee Chul revealed that IU is his role model when it comes to handling hate comments.
Kim Hee Chul shared, “I got a lot of hate comments since my debut. It was stuff like telling me to f**** off. The people started to say, ‘Raise your hands if you don’t like him!'” The start also revealed that he was hurt a lot by impossible rumors.
He continued to share, “It’s harder than you’d think to sue people who write hate comments. Whenever we talk about hate comments on shows, I always say that people should handle it like IU does. She deals with hate comments wisely. I heard that when she meets with the perpetrators, they talk about their sad situation and how they’re getting stressed out from being sued, making IU seem like she’s the perpetrator. I think we should follow IU’s example and don’t let them off easy.”
