NCT DREAM's Renjun recent interaction with a hater on Bubble

Recently, Renjun responded to a hateful message by a sasaeng (obsessed fan) on Bubble (an interactive app for fans and idols). Saesang texted, as translated by Kpop Charts on April 7, 2024 on X:

"It has become so easy for idols to live. They make money according to their looks, they date according to their looks, their live shows are sh*t, they are thoughtless, and there is no passion like the previous generation.”

In response, Renjun stated that the saesang should not talk like a rat and text his lawyer instead. He further elaborated on the hardships of being an idol and wrote, as translated by Kpop Charts on X:

“Don’t hide and type like a rat. If you have something to say talk to my lawyer. Contact this person and say what you want to say. Idols are also human and feel hardships!"

Renjun continued:

"Don't take out your anger on people who you don't know.”
