ONEUS Ravn Faces Criticisms After Supposedly Asking Fans to Buy Him Gifts Constantly

In fan culture, especially in K-pop, fans often buy their favorite idols expensive gifts as a way to show their support and express their love. While some companies have implemented a rule forbidding K-pop idols from accepting these kinds of gifts, there are still many that still accept them.

Unfortunately, there are cases where some idols can abuse this and end up asking fans to cop them items that are hard to get or give them luxury items.

Recently, ONEUS member Ravn has been accused of doing such things, following a post on the online community platform TheQoo on October 14.

Based on the series of screenshots shared by one netizen, who compiled several messages from Ravn on the paid messaging platform Bubble, the idol can be seen supposedly asking fans for specific expensive items.

According to the netizen who shared the screenshots, Ravn has been consistently asking fans for these kinds of expensive gifts.

In particular, Ravn had asked fans regarding the inscriptions on benches that can be found at Seoul Forest Park. “Something I have been curious about since before! What do you have to do to inscribe letter on the benches at Seoul Forest Park?” Ravn had asked.

A fan then explained that Ravn had expressed his laziness to research about its cost, so he asked fans on Bubble. He also shared a photo of an inscribed bench on social media, and asked fans on there about its price as well.

Individuals can usually get a bench dedicated to them at Seoul Forest Park if their donations reach a certain amount. Those who donate more than ₩1 million KRW (around $693 USD) can get an inscription on a bench. In particular, K-pop fans often use this donation event as a way to put inscriptions of idols’ names.

As this information can easily be found online, netizens are criticizing the ONEUS member for asking fans in the hopes that would do it for him as well.

In another instance, he also mentioned to fans about a special limited item that would be available at an offline store, but expressed his sadness that he won’t be able to get it.

Ravn would also often tell fans that his phone is outdated and complain about it, and even shared a photo showing his iPhone not fitting the new iPhone cases properly.

In addition, the idol would also share with fans multiple screenshots of items from luxurious brands that he has been looking for, as well as where to buy it. He once again expressed his sadness at not being able to buy it, but would try when he gets back from schedules.
