No matter where they are going, we can expect to see Koreans well dressed, every time without fail. Bold colours are not reserved for casual menswear, and they should be well-groomed. Kim's shirtless snap and videos on Instagram and Twitter got mixed reactions from social media users. It was eye candy for some, but it was like a breach of Korean culture for others. After the incident, ARMY was furious when a user on YouTube made derogatory statements about the singer, V. The Youtuber accused Kim of being intoxicated and "making trouble" by uploading a shirtless photo of himself.
The Winter bear has caught the eye of the storm many times on the social media platform. As the level of fame comes at its price, with the cost being some significant controversies.
