The controversy grew even stronger when Kim Jae Hwan, who previously worked with Bae Jin Young as a member of project boy group WANNA ONE, shared the aforementioned contents.
Regarding this, an official from Kim Jae Hwan’s side explained, “Kim Jae Hwan posted the contents with a sad heart over Bae Jin Young being engulfed in this controversy (rumor).”
