Online forums are being stirred by a rumor about a male idol in the wake of the recent drug problems in the industry.
A unverified rumor spread through several internet communities on October 15. This post claims “There will be a drug scandal involving an idol member soon, and Lee, a male idol signed to a major entertainment label, has been supported by wealthy businessman A. In their relationship, Lee has been getting lavish gifts, cars, and money for more than a year. However, A learned that Lee had been seeing actor K behind A’s back. A intends to expose Lee’s drug (philopon) usage as payback.”
Many are concerned about witch hunts against innocent victims because this rumor has not been confirmed in any way.
