Personal Instagram Account Controversy
In November 2018, Kim Yong-guk was again surrounded by controversy. He posted on his personal Instagram account and shocked everyone with his post. It turned out that his personal Instagram account was hacked and the content he uploaded was revealed as he wrote an apology through the letter.
The post that caused a row was regarding JBJ’s reality show and involved the members’ desire to continue it with a second season. In the caption, Yonk-guk wrote, “??????????????? Who said I was okay with it???????????” meaning that he never said yes to another season of JBJ’s reality show.
Yong-guk also shared a screenshot from a Kakaotalk chat room with a message from the fans, who listed down an expensive gift that they have prepared for him. In the caption, he listed items that he would like to receive as a gift, “VR!!!!!!!!!Litter robot!!!!!!!!! Hahahahahahaha hahahahhahaha hahahahahahahaha”
He also posted a photo of when he and the other JBJ members had to sign albums for their fans and wrote the caption, “A huge disappointment [referring to an expression that left us shocked or annoyed in reality.]”
During the promotion era with JBJ, Yong-guk also posted a photo of his ex-girlfriend which is presumably a non-celebrity and he hid the woman’s face making a mini heart-shape with his fingers.
All the controversy surrounding Yong-guk made many netizens annoyed. They even reported his problematic attitude as they found out that some of the gifts they have sent him have been actually thrown away. The gifts that were allegedly thrown away were not very expensive and they also contained letters from the fans.
They also found some photos of Yong-guk visiting a popular clubbing venue, a place that has been famous for its sexist content and sexually offensive acts and he was still a minor.
Seeing the controversies that have surrounded Yong-guk, some netizens reacted and left their comments through the online community, “He wore the couple bracelet he shared with his ex-girlfriend and even now he is probably dating Sonamoo’s Nahyun”, “I just can’t trust anyone these days,” “He has already reached the maximum level of being rude and the most ‘problematic’ idol.”
That was all the information about JBJ and the details about Kim Yong-guk’s controversies. Let’s support each member of JBJ and their career in the future, and hope that Yong-guk realized his fault so he will become a better person sooner or later.
