ITZY Ryujin is making headlines for mentioning Joy-Crush during a live broadcast.
While reading fans’ comments, Ryujin found a comment saying “Crush should pay more taxes”. She said “Crush should pay more taxes” and laughed.
When Yeji was puzzled as if she did not understand the joke, Ryujin explained, “Aren’t senior Joy and senior Crush dating?”
Yeji asked back, “Yeah, but why does it matter?” Ryujin drew attention as she explained again, “Pay more taxes. People tell him to do that.”
Netizens who heard these remarks showed various reactions such as “Even if it’s a public relationship, her remarks are a bit…”, “It doesn’t seem like a bad intention”, “It seems like a mistake”…
Crush, who is 31 years old this year, confirmed his romantic relationship with Red Velvet Joy in August last year.
Since the start of their public relationship, Crush has expressed his affection by often pressing “like” on Joy’s Instagram.
