AI AI DE LAS ALAS was attacked by Netizens for her comments in her social media account about the new show of Korean actor Lee Min Ho. Here’s what she wrote:

“THE KING sa Netflix. Kung hindi lang si Lee min ho ang bida nito, d ako mag tiyatiyagang bigyan to ng chance, pero sorry hindi kagandahan itong palabas na to para sa aking panlasa.. masyado ako disappointed ... hindi mo maintindihan ang flow ng korean novela na to .. science fiction, ? Action? Love story? 

"Ano ba talaga? Panalo lang to para sa kanila sa dami ng intrusion .. fastfood chain, coffee, energy drink, lipstick , makeup lahat na ata ng klase, pero sana mas inisip nila yung ganda ng story bago yung kita... pero nabasa ko sa google magaling ang scriptwriter nito.”

The show is written by Kim Eun Sook, who has written many hit Koreanovelas.

“Siya ang sumulat, ang tanong: ANYARE??? Talagang hindi ako maka relate . Hindi ako makakapit sa story . Na-compare ko siya tuloy sa ITAEWON CLASS, simple pero aabangan mo. Ito, 5 chances na ang nabigay ko para ayoko na talaga.

"Nagtataka ako kung bakit sya number 2 sa trending. Hayz ang lungkot. Sorry, Lee, idol kita, magaling ka pa ding actor pero yung flow ng stor, waley talaga.”

Fans of Lee Min Ho quickly attacked her, making her number one trending on Twitter. Here are some of their answers to Ai Ai:

“May I have the pleasure to greet you a good morning. Well, giving out opinions are good but when you say out loud your feedbacks about this great drama with too much criticism of the author and tagging the lead actor himself was so disrespectful. Gigil mo ako!”

“What's your deal Ms #aiai delasalas to have the audacity to tag Lee Min Ho? First of all the Genres of this drama are Fantasy, Romance, Time Travel, Science Fiction, Sageuk and pwede na rin iinclude ang Action Thriller wc is complete opposite genre of IC, so y compare??”

“Ms. aiai, how dare u to compare the king eternal monarch to itaewon class when those two are really good PLUS they dont have the same genre? haha also, the audacity to tag lee min ho? omg na stress ako sayo ghorl. hindi mo siguro maintindihan Face with tears of joy.”

Ai Ai wisely chose not to answer them directly and just disabled the comments section of her account. Ai Ai now has her own bakery called Martina’s Bread and Pastries (her real name) and, in response, she later posted her photo with some bread, with this caption:

“Turning the negative into positive, Naniniwala ako sa kasabihang ‘when life gives you lemons, make lemonade.’ Bilang idol ko talaga si lee min ho (kahit hindi ko gusto yung THE KING) gumawa talaga ako ng bread na nakapangalan for him.

"Kung may pandilimon, ang Martina’s may PANDE LEE MIN HO  (with ube and korteng L for lee)…soon gagawa pa ako ng UBE PANDE LEE MIN LOAF.”

Well, the fans of Lee Min Ho need not run amuck just because someone didn’t like the new show of their idol. Ai Ai is entitled to express her own opinion, just like everybody else.

Last time I looked, we still have freedom of expression in this country, don’t we? A teacher even called Ai Ai boba but she answered him back and it's good he apologized and shut up.
