NCT Jaehyun repeatedly slammed for inactivity on Bubble, fans say 'touch some grass'
Bubble is a paid K-pop messaging app where fans can subscribe to send and receive messages from idols
It seems that NCT’s Jaehyun is once again under fire for not interacting on the paid app Bubble. With K-pop agencies capitalizing on their artists’ every move as the loyalty of K-pop fans knows no bounds, it has led to many believing that they have a say in what the artist can do. Several paid messaging apps and platforms have cropped up where fans can pay to personally interact with K-pop idols. We have apps like Bubble, Lysn, Universe and FAB for such purposes.
Apps like Bubble have a paid monthly subscription where fans can individually subscribe to each K-pop idol on the platform to receive their messages. However, this has also led some obsessive fans to send hate to those idols who are not as active on such platforms like Red Velvet’s Joy, EXO’s D.O and Xiumin and NCT’s Jaehyun. Some fans also use such platforms to cyberbully idols as was seen in the case of Ateez’s Seonghwa and Loona’s Yeojin.

Jaehyun’s inactivity on Bubble has fans annoyed
In fact, in the third week of April, some NCT fans took to social media to show their displeasure at Jaehyun’s absence on Bubble. And just 10 days later, the same issue has been brought up again after Jaehyun came online, posted a photograph and left. NCTzens (NCT’s fandom) know that the idol is pretty inactive when it comes to social media from his infrequent posts on Instagram, Twitter, Lysn and Bubble. Unfortunately, some entitled fans felt that he should put more ‘sincerity’ and be more active as fans are paying for his social media content.
‘Show a little bit gratitude’
Many such fans made posts like, “If you look at his BTS videos, he's always taking pictures and seems almost addicted to his phone with the way it's stuck on his face all the time, it's true that he's simply insincereㅋㅋ The Jaehyun fans shielding him are miserable.” Another user commented, “Nowadays, you can access data anywhere and everyone has their phones in their hands all the time, do you think it's that much of a time investment to just open your phone and write a few characters? His mind is simply not there; He has no intentions of chatting with the fans, so he's not going on the app. Stop getting stress because of this and just uninstall Bubble~.”
Another wrote, “Ngl I get idols are human they’re not obligated to interact bla bla bla but fans still consume your product so just showing a little bit gratitude for it won’t hurt. He does not seem to care at all and always seems annoyed in fancalls even if the fan is asking a normal question. Obviously idols cant always be in the mood but i’ve never seen this guy care especially recently and it’s just.”
‘Jaehyun owes you nothing’
However, many NCTzens are slamming such fans for hating on Jaehyun for such a reason. One NCTzen tweeted, “First of all, jaehyun owes u NOTHING. y'all did it for your own satisfaction so stfu and touch some grass.” Another shared, “Don't like it? Do not subscribe. Easy.” One fan pointed out, “I felt the reality slap when I saw our conversation the reality slap should be realizing that there's no such thing as "your conversation" with him in the first place, you're replying to messages he sends to everyone else that pays for it. Just go text your actual friends.”
A Jaehyun stan shared, “No forreal tho idk why this is STILL a problem???? EVERYONE knows jae never uses bubble, he's my ultimate bias and even i subscribed to TY's instead of jae's bc i have common sense and knew i would not be getting my money's worth lol if you're subscribing to support your fave, then don't complain lololll i really don't understand why this is an issue at all.” One fan reminded, “Jaehyun sends us pictures like this on bbl and you dare to call him insincere?!” Another NCTzen commented, “You unsubscribe and three dollars less in his pocket! don't pay him then, damnnn.”
