“The kids went gaga over Wanna One tonight, and imagine P13,000 tickets and kids get their parents to spend for songs the lyrics of which hindi naman naiintindihan ng Pinoy!” Sanchez wrote.

“The phenom is worldwide. It’s the look, I think!”

“All K-Pop concerts I’ve been to are filled with screaming kids na nilalagnat!” she added.

“Basta, malaki ang contribution ng Pilipinas sa ekonomoniya ng Korea.”

On Saturday, the television host went to South Korean boy band Wanna One’s concert at Mall of Asia Arena.

Filipino K-pop fans were triggered and criticized Sanchez online.

“You don’t get to judge us. You don’t get to judge anybody. You just don’t get to judge,” a Twitter user wrote.

“Korina Sanchez features KPOP concerts, invite K idols as guests and the ridicule KPOP fans for being fans. A round of applause for a hypocrite,” another one said.
