Han Seung Yeon of girl band Kara revealed that she has been receiving malicious and disturbing handwritten hate mail from an “anti-fan”.
During a recent recording of the Incarnation talk show, the 25-year-old idol singer startled audiences as she talked of the hate mail she was constantly receiving for over a year. She explained: “For over a year this person has been harassing me with handwritten letters filled with curses. They come in pretty envelopes, much like a letter from a fan, so I always end up reading them.”
At one point last year, the songstress tweeted a message saying: “If you find it grotesque then you don’t have watch it. If you don’t like it, just leave it alone. Must you communicate such sentiments to me? Is that the only way you’re satisfied? Thanks for letting me know.” It was revealed on the show — which airs tonight, September 10, on Korea’s SBS network — that the message was indeed intended for this specific person.
