Netizen reactions. | theqoo Would the magazine care about the fans? They wouldn’t. It’s a chance to grab the attention of non-fans and promote themselves… Only the fans are angered. Sigh… They crossed the line. They both look alike. Should I say they both have the fox-type face? I would’ve uploaded it too, if it were me. They themselves admitted to the relationship, so what is the magazine to do… Why are fans releasing their anger on the magazine… Netizen comments. | theqoo I’m so annoyed. Since they both admitted to the relationship, the magazine would be excited. No but that’s kinda…tactless of them. Of course the magazine would be excited. They’re the only ones who have this footage. They said they fell in love at first sight, so of course the magazine will be excited.

What do you think?
