Big BIG news in K-pop today! Who was in the selca that started the controversy? Loen Entertainment’s statement and AllKpop’s prophet!
OH MY GOODNESS! What’s going on this year with scandals and controversies in Korea? Tell me, do they really think the world will end on December 21st, 2012 because some scandals that happened this year doesn’t make any sense. About five hours ago, AllKpop released a story on IU and Super Junior’s Eunhyuk. No harm no foul right? Wrong, this is definitely wrong. IU is known for taking selcas and posting it on Twitter. Selcas are self shot pictures. Well, this selca created a huge storm! Allow me to show you!
Yes, if this doesn’t say that they are dating I don’t know what to say. This is like a sex tape in Korea. Literally, a sex tape. Let’s take a look at this picture for a bit. One, he’s shirtless. I think that’s all we need to get from this picture. I mean, what else do we really need to gather? It’s such a big deal because he’s shirtless. Another reason is because he’s a member of Super Junior. Super Junior. The biggest K-pop boy band to date who are by the way known globally. IU is freaking innocent IU. I really don’t much of her, but she is the golden girl of S. Korea. Let’s just say the all heck is breaking loose between Eunhyuk’s fan base and IU’s fan base. Like I always say, “Fans CONTROL their careers.” You would think that this story would get majority of the attention, but a particular comment is getting a lot of attention.
Here’s the comment:
Possible explanation from the agency: Yes the WERE dating but they were not in bed. IU was sick with a cold and Eunhyuk visited her and they were sitting on the couch. Eunhyuk was not shirtless, he was simply wearing a WOMAN’S TUBE TOP which exposed bare shoulders. His face looked like that because he caught the cold from IU immediately after they were sitting on the couch together. Please look at us with kind eyes. #I have my popcorn ready to see how in the hell are they going to get out of this one.—-isaythetruth.
Now, look at what Loen Entertainment’s statement.
Here’s what they said:
“Hello. This is Loen Entertainment.
This is an official statement regarding the picture that was revealed early this morning through IU’s Twitter.
First, we bow our heads and sincerely apologize for causing concern to all the representatives and all the fans of IU and Super Junior.
The revealed photo was from this summer when IU was very sick and Eunhyuk had come to visit her at her home, and was taken then when they sat on the sofa together; it was revealed to the outside due to IU’s mistake through her related photo uploading service while IU was making a mention on Twitter.
IU is sincerely sorry for bringing harm to her sunbae Eunhyuk due to her error.
Lastly, IU and Eunhyuk are close sunbae-hoobae who have been close since IU’s debut, Eunhyuk is close to the point that he has even dined with IU’s mother. We ask that you do not exaggerate or make assumptions about IU and Eunhyuk’s relationship due to this incident.
We will return to greet you as a more matured agency after having learned from this incident. We apologize once again.
We are sorry.
Before I comment on how similar this sounds I want to give a reaction on their statement. What? Seriously, this sounds like a cover up. Who in their right mind would be under somebody that close if they are sick? That’s right only couples to do that and that’s if she’s really sick. Now, question why was he shirtless? As I said above, the only thing you need to gather from that picture is the fact that he is shirtless. They are dating and the neitizen should just allow them to date. Now, to the comment that was released before the ACTUAL statement. Something is not right. It’s TOO similar to be on accident. If this person is a normal member on AllKpop then she (or he) has a gift, but I don’t think this person is just an ordinary member.
That’s just me, but I’ll do a follow up post on the reaction and whenever SM Entertainment decides to release their statement. Hopefully, theirs will make sense.
