Damay sa scandal: Yong Junhyung, Choi Jong Hoon nagretiro
Pagkatapos mag-anunsiyo ni Jung Joon Yoong na magretiro sa showbiz, isa pang K-pop Idol ang nagpaalam na aalis sa boy group niyang Highlight. Si Yong Junhyung. Ang dahilan niya, nahihiya siya sa nangyari at ayaw niyang madamay pa ang mga kagrupo niya sa scandal o kaso niya.
Pero kumpara kay Jung Joon Yoong, si Yong Junhyung at si Joon Young lang ang ka-chat niya at hindi raw siya parte ng chat room talaga. Kaya humingi ito ng paumanhin sa pagtanggi noong una, maging sa kanyang management.
Part of his announcement in his IG:
“In the KakaoTalk messages with Jung Joon Young from late 2015 reported by the news, we drank the night before and went home, and I asked him how he is doing the next day. Jung Joon Young told me that he got caught after sending illegal video footage to someone, and I responded, ‘You got caught by her?’ I did not receive a video at the time, but I did receive a video at a different instance. In addition, I participated in inappropriate conversations regarding it. All of these actions were very immoral, and I was foolish. I treated it as not a big deal without thinking that it is a crime and illegal act, and it is also my fault for not firmly restraining [Jung Joon Young].
“I participated in a witness interview regarding this matter. I said everything that I know without any lies, and I cooperated with the investigation. While receiving the witness interview, I saw exactly what conversations I had in the past, and I was embarrassed and could not help but feel horrified.
“I never participated in the illegal acts of taking hidden camera footage or circulating it. In addition, I have maintained a relationship of only greeting each other once in awhile with Jung Joon Young since late 2016.
However, although I knew of what was happening during that time, I thought of it as not a big deal and acted at ease. I was a silent bystander about this severe issue where several more victims may have arisen due to my actions.”
At humingi nga ito ng apology sa lahat daw ng naapektuhan ng nagawa niya.
Kahapon ay magkasama namang dumating sa police station sina Seungri at Jung Joon Young para sa panibagong imbestigasyon.
At wala pa halos ilang oras na nagpahayag ng pagreretiro ni Yong Junhyung, isa pang K-pop Idol ang nag-retire na rin, ang miyembro ng FITisland na si Choi Jong Hoon na diumano’y sangkot din sa scandal.
Sa ngayon, talagang marami ang nawiwindang sa nangyayari sa K-pop world. May mga ilan kaming nababasa na nadi-disillusion sa mga hinahangaang K-pop Idols.
