#ApologizeToSuperJunior trends after Philippine TV show calls them ‘baduy’ [Updated]

Filipino fans and netizens calls out ‘Home Sweetie Home’ for disrespecting the veteran K-Pop group

Super Junior
  • #ApologizeToSuperJunior, #RespectSuperJunior, Suju, Home Sweetie Home, ELFs and other related terms trends as the TV Show ‘Home Sweetie Home’ showed K-Pop fans called Super Junior ‘baduy’ (a colloquial term in Filipino which is used to say ‘old fashioned’), as well as ‘eew’.
  • The episode in question was shot in South Korea and is aired on December 22
  • On a Facebook post, Home Sweetie Home issues apology for their dialogue on their December 22 episode, saying that ‘We intended to establish their seniority, but we admit that we should have used better terms to say it.’

ELFs in the Philippines and around the world are now calling out the ABS-CBN TV show ‘Home Sweetie Home’ after its December 22 episode shown an exchange between Empoy Marquez who plays the role of ‘Sir Nards’ and some K-Pop fangirls in Seoul, South Korea. He asked the fangirls if seeing Super Junior is included on their Seoul bucket list.

However, the fan girls have replied something we didn’t really expect to see on a TV show.

They replied “eew,” and “Hey Sir Nards, BTS is the new trend now. You’re such an uncle!”

Their response was followed by laughter and comments like “Super Junior! That’s so old!” and “Baduy!”

The episode was slammed by fans for saying that the veteran K-Pop group, whom debuted in 2005 and is still currently active as of this writing, was described as old-fashioned and disgusting.

Hashtags related to Super Junior trends as netizens speak about the issue

Here are some of the netizens’ reactions on Twitter:

Even the COO of known K-Pop events organizer PULP Live World Happee Sy spoke about the issue, saying that K-Pop fanaticism isn’t just a funny hobby that the guys at ABS-CBN could mess with. She also calls them out to have respect and be more sensitive of the world.

And while it’s not the time to joke, we’re sure that this tweet applies coherently.

Super Junior is a well-known K-Pop figure in the industry. They debuted in 2005 and largely contributed to the success of the Hallyu wave nowadays, as they are considered one of the groups to successfully cross the barrier between countries when it comes to pop culture.

Yes, they might be around for long, but they’re still one of the most admired groups in K-Pop history, and calling them out ‘old fashioned’ or ‘eew’ doesn’t give any justice to what they’ve achieved and done.
