When Younha updated her Instagram with a picture of a tombstone belonging to the Air Force Colonel Kim Joo Hothank him for his service …
… A Korean left a condescending comment and tried to “school” the soloist about the concept “violation of privacy.”
The commentator insisted that if Younha did not personally know the person to whom the tombstone belonged, she could do harm by revealing personal information without permission – and demanded that she delete the post.
Younha: Thank you for your service. I want to be sure to flourish in it all and also protect it all.
Commentator: Is the person whose tombstone you have photographed not related to you by blood? Because photographing a stranger’s tombstone is possibly slander. You also risk disclosing personal information. This can lead to a violation of privacy. Please define your relationship with this person. Or, if this tombstone belongs to someone not related to you and you photographed it for entertainment, please delete it.
After reading the comment, online communities agreed that while “polite on the surface” the comment was obvious “passive aggressive” and “snored.”
- “If you know, then you know. That comment does not sound like a real concern to me. I’m not kidding. It’s obviously from a troll looking for trouble, ready to back out if shit goes south.”
- “Just a passive aggressive troll pretending to be a logical human being.”
- “I used to go around trolling like this … I can confirm that the commentary is trying to set the drama in motion.”
- “I mean, if the concern had been genuine, it would have ended up in her DMs.”
Once that know-it-all comment had been made, Younha also came across it – and she knew exactly how to shut it down in four words:
He’s my grandfather.
The post from 2018 has since been deleted – as with most of her older posts – but to this day, the interaction between Younha and the commentator is still a good example of “trolls” trying to pick celebrities “because they can.”
- “Why would anyone photograph a stranger’s gravestone in a national cemetery to upload it on social media? Not everyone is an attention grabber like you.”
- “Uh … There are also so many trolls like this everywhere on YouTube comments. They go around picking on celebrities because they can.”
- “The comment is literally so stupid that I crawl into the next dimension. What a useless life to live.”
- “It’s so cool. Younha must be proud.”
- “What is it with people who can not continue their days without arguing over something?”
- “We all know that if this person were actually worried about any backlash that Younha might get, they would have DMed her about it. Some people love to choose matches for no reason. I hate some people like that. “
- “Had the concern been genuine, they would have sent her a private message about it. It’s obviously an attempt to call her out. What did Younha do to deserve such a prank?”
Previously in a TV show called Screening of humanityYounha introduced her grandfather as ”The inspiration that lasts [her] travels while pursuing her dream abroad in Japan. “
When I was young, my grandfather took me to the Air Force base. He showed me the planes and told me, ‘It’s no use being smart and talented.’ He told me, ‘What’s more important is that you survive to the last.’ It has become an inspiration that keeps me going, especially as I pursue my dream abroad in Japan.
The late Colonel Kim Joo Ho was entitled to a funeral at Daejeon National Cemetery for his contributions in 1971, taking down a North Korean vessel.
Daejeon National Cemetery was established to commemorate … those who sacrificed and contributed to the country and the community. It is a sacred place for veterans where the heroic spirits of the country rest.
