안티팬 or just 안티.

He has so many anti-fans.

is translated to

그는 안티팬이 참 많아.
그는 안티가 참 많아.

We use them both in everyday language.

  • i'm still wanting to hear a purely 한글 derived word...not something taken from another culture. but the problem is that the koreans that are using this 외대어 are of a generation that might not know there is a pure word for this. this is all they know. Feb 12 at 2:31

informal form in daily conversations: -까

e.g) 소시까 (anti-SNSD)

natives much more frequently say '-까' than '-안티' in their conversations, of course '-까' is not formal

krdic.naver.com/detail.nhn?docid=6081400 / 까다 (verbal, ko-ko) 5. (속되게) 남의 결함을 들추어 비난하다.

and: endic.naver.com/… / 까다 (verbal, ko-en) 5. (비난하다, 욕하다) knock, run down, (Brit, inf) slate

so.. here -까 is derived from '까다', which means . Of course it is NOT recommended to use this word in formal conversations.
