Added DiffLines:

* MoralEventHorizon: Hyunseung after he didn't participate in the fanmeeting and his "attitude" problem starts, and how he leaves the group was considered unforgivable.


Added DiffLines:

* TheScrappy: Which person who fans despise the most? It's [[spoiler: Hyunseung,]] that's who. Of course due to he reaches MoralEventHorizon and how after he leaves the group, causing several fans have gone as far as saying that [[spoiler: Hyunseung should live happily with his party buddies and don't ever mention the group's name ever again.]]

Added DiffLines:

** Hyunseung's departure from the group came on the heels of an "attitude controversy" - Cube gave clearance for him to miss schedules, and some felt that he had shown unprofessional behavior - that split the fan base into those who feel Hyunseung was a dead weight and are glad he left, and those who feel the witch hunt was uncalled for. Cube's official statement that differences in musical style and personality were the reason for the departure, coupled with Hyunseung's visible unhappiness in the group, have only stirred more disagreement as to whether something went wrong in the group dynamics, and who was to blame.


* Broken Base: Kikwang using {{blackface}} on a reality TV program and acting out African-American stereotypes. The international fandom was not pleased, with several international K-pop news outlets censoring any mention of the incident. Granted, the program was scripted, the cast was told exactly what to do, and [[ValuesDissonance South Korea itself didn't have a problem with it all]], but several fans believe Kikwang still should have refused to do it if he could.

* FridgeBrilliance: Most international fans won't get it right away, but Junhyung's old stage name was ''Poppin' Dragon'' because he was known in XING for dancing and because his last name, Yong, means "[[InstantAwesomeJustAddDragons Dragon]]" in Korean.
** Another similar example: Hyunseung's old stage name was ''SO-1'' has two possible meanings: wanting to be the best and "wish", which sounds like "so-won" in Korean.

to:

* ValuesDissonance: ValuesDissonance:
**
The {{blackface}} incident.incident, as mentioned on BrokenBase, brought backlash from everyone except people in South Korea as the negative implications of blackface aren't understood all that well there.



* TheWoobie: Doojoon was cut from debuting with many of his friends in One Day and admitted that he regrets that he didn't take his training as seriously as he should have.
** No one ever lets Hyunseung forget about ''almost'' making it into one of the biggest k-pop groups in South Korea. After he got cut, he spent the next year living like he had no purpose in life [[GetAHoldOfYourselfMan until a friend convinced him to start practicing again]]. Eventually, he ended up joining a dance crew and being a back-up dancer in clubs until Yoseob brought him to Cube.
** Junhyung hasn't said much about his time as a member of XING, but based on the fact that fellow ex-members of the group had to sue their way out of it and are barred from mentioning it, it's probably not a pretty story. He also was originally rejected by Cube Entertainment's president, but managed to convince him into letting him stay.
** Kikwang's NamesTheSame incident as AJ.


* FanDumb: Subverted. Beast fans have a reputation for being realistically aware of the group's faults as well as its strengths, probably because so many of the members have been rejected from other projects that it's impossible to see them as perfect.
** Some B2uty's can be [[ClingyJealousGirl overly possesive]] of the members. The bashing incident with [[GirlGroup Rainbow's Jaekyung]] comes to mind. They have also flamed the then 16 years old female soloist IU (whom Yoseob is a fanboy of) for the heinous crime of performing a song with Yoseob and getting a half-hug from him at the end.

** Kikwang was the one who introduced Yoseob to Cube Entertainment, and Yoseob in turn introduced Hyunseung as well. Doojoon was inspired to become a singer after watching Hyunseung in the Big Bang documentary. Doojoon, Kikwang, and Dongwoon were friends while they were all training with JYP Entertainment. This means that the most of the group was already connected before they started training as an actual group.
