Suspected As The Person Who Was In A Vulgar Video
In 2016, the South Korean entertainment industry was shocked by the spread of vulgar videos by famous actors and also boy band members on various online community sites.

Not only the 1989-born actor, but actor Seo Jun-young was also suspected of being involved in this controversy as one of the men in the video in circulation.
As if that wasn’t enough, A-JAX’s Hyeongkon was also believed to be appearing in one of the outstanding masturbation videos. The idol who debuted in 2012 was allegedly involved because it would seem that his face is similar to the face of the man in the video. Since rumors about his involvement started circulating, Hyeongkon immediately made his Instagram account private. Hyeongkon’s reaction was different from actor Kim Min-seok, who directly provided a rebuttal both directly via Instagram and through his agency’s official statement.
Meanwhile, netizens have speculated that the men in the videos recorded their personal videos with the intention of getting sponsorship. As we know, sponsors often ask for sexual services from celebrities in exchange for connections in getting various projects for them in the entertainment world.
Other Celebrities Suspected Of Appearing In Vulgar Videos
On December 10th, 2016, in a video that was spread in the media, people who looked like actors Seo Ha-joon, Seo Jun-young, and many more appeared. In the video, men record themself naked without any clothes and even show very private parts of their bodies. Korean Netizens speculated that the people in the video were from the circle of actors because they look very similar to some of the popular artists.
The reason for the speculation was that netizens saw the person in the video wearing the same necklace that is often worn by the alleged actor. Speculation also continued to strengthen because the actor’s social media accounts were turned private after the rumors circulated.
After that video circulated, another similar video also appeared which was reportedly done by ‘C’ actor. This video also reportedly leaked when it was to be sold to others secretly. Actor Kim Min-suk was also mentioned as the actor ‘C’ in the vulgar video. However, this rumor was immediately denied by the actor through an Instagram post. As for the names of the two other actors, Seo Ha-joon and Seo Jun-young were mentioned as the perpetrators of the vulgar video.
On the other hand, a series of names of other stars revealed as being involved in the nasty webcam video, include Choi Noo-ri, GOT7’s Jackson, Kim Gi-ri, ASTRO’s Cha Eun-woo, and MADTOWN’s Jota. Even so, the list of the released stars also cannot be verified and is most likely just a rumor.
One of the K-Pop boy groups, A-JAX, stated that they disbanded after promoting for 7 years. This was announced on March 31st, 2019, by their agency, DSP Media.
“We inform you that our exclusive contract with the five A-JAX members will expire on March 31st, 2019. From now on, A-JAX members will continue their steps in a separate way in the entertainment industry,” DSP Media said in their official statement.
Boy band A-JAX debuted in 2012 with their song titled “ONE 4 U” and they were doing activities in the entertainment industry both inside and outside South Korea. Besides singles and album soundtracks, A-JAX also promoted their last album together with the song “Snake.”
The song was released in October 2013. A-JAX members also participated in the KBS variety show The Unit. Before officially disbanding, they performed in Japan and one of the members, Joonghee, began serving in the military service in 2019.
