Posting fanfics related to the death of Leeteuk’s father and grandparents is about 1000% more disrespectful than spreading the funeral pictures around (not that I’m excusing that at all, don’t get me wrong), but I haven’t heard anyone condemn that yet. ELF complain about journalists and sasaengs taking pictures of what should be private moments, but then they go and turn this horrible situation into fanfics that they’re somehow enjoying reading. This is a very real tragedy that will drastically affect Leeteuk’s life, and they’re using it to fantasize about how devastated Leeteuk is, or how they would comfort him, or how it would bring their OTP together. That is a huge violation of privacy and respect, and I can’t even comprehend how someone would think that’s appropriate. It’s sickening.
