GMA News are now in question after reporting that 4 popular KPOP idols violated social distancing in Korea. These are Jungkook of BTS, Mingyu from SEVENTEEN, Cha Eun-Woo from Astro and Jaehyun from NCT 127. I actually have heard about this news but was glad to know that they just had dinner and eat even before May of 2020.
Worldwide fans are tweeting nonstop to tell GMA News to apologize pertaining to the tone and some details about the report. A trending topic, #GMAApologize is on top trending as of this writing. While it is true that agencies handling our favorite KPOP idols, fans are calling out GMA for using the world “lumabag” (violated). Here is the explanation of the fans why and why they are tweeting nonstop using the hashtag.
The source of entertainment news of GMA Network from Korean News Group Dispatch.
Fans also call GMA network to get information to the official twitter account of Bighit Entertainment instead of somewhere else. The official agency of BTS has more than 14 Million followers on twitter.
One of the fans also tweeted and enumerated the situation for GMA news to understand what really happened.
#GMAApologize for falsely reporting last night abt the 4 K-pop stars 🙂
Like wtf? You guys didn’t even bother to look for the official acc of BIG HIT but you have the audacity to report something from 🇰🇷 w/o finding out first what’s the true. 🤡#GMAApologize#GMAApologize pic.twitter.com/0OYhUwylP3

One of the avid fans also commented that Jaehyun is not part of NCT Dream but of NCT 127 which is obviously right.
i do think that @gmanews should apologize for involving nct dream into this issue. jaehyun wasn’t from nct dream, he’s from nct 127. pakiayos naman po ng facts nyo#GMAApologize #ApologizeGMA pic.twitter.com/U3cugWKCxH

Hope it’s a hand-written letter too. Next time please research thoroughly before butting in, coz the news itself is related to Korea only and it’s very irrelevant to Philippines. Just a so-so accusation yet here you are exaggerating and broadcasting it nation-wide. https://t.co/c7ZBTtfnaT pic.twitter.com/G9RqSMKd0h

Iya Villania already apologized and promised to be more sensitive next time.
the reporter already said their apologies, however idk how i should feel abt this, its not just her tone in “nakuha pang gumimik” we were furious abt, it was the entirety of the report, it was poorly researched and misleading. well, up to you guys if u accept this pic.twitter.com/KzCXggbkWm
