K-netizens Want NewJeans To Refrain From Using Only English And Speak Korean More

Some netizens complained about NewJeans members using English too much 

A netizen on Nate Pann made a post titled “To be honest, I hope NewJeans members stop using English”, drawing keen attention.

They said, “I like NewJeans members and their songs, but I think they are using English too much. Minji, Danielle and Hanni only communicate in English. From the perspective of foreign fans, I would be happy about that. To be honest, I feel like the identity of K-pop idol is collapsing…”, adding “Even in the lyrics of NewJeans songs, English words are more than Korean ones. I’m a bit disappointed”.

The netizen added, “I think Hyein got away from the controversial live broadcast because she couldn’t stand listening to the members talking in English all day long… Minji gets along the foreign members, but I hope Danielle and Hanni can speak Korean more often”

In response, other netizens commented:

– Now they’re being criticized for using English ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ Pann girls really can’t let a day pass  without talking this and that about female idols

– If you feel uncomfortable, don’t watch NewJeans videos…They’ve been speaking Korean more often, so stop talking nonsense

– I’ve seen many videos of foreign members from other groups using their native languages to communicate with fans. Why are you so surprised when it comes to NewJeans? Is it a problem to use English?

– Feeling left out, right?ㅋㅋㅋ I just encountered some videos but ran away because I felt left outㅋㅋㅋㅋ So annoying

– People praise the girls for their English fluency. Some people are just trying to pick on such a successful group for no reason ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ It’s disgusting

– Minji said she doesn’t know Korean noodles despite being born and raised in Korea. They’re leaving a bad impression on me
