U-know Yunho’s name came in 1st place with 4,438 votes out of 12,983 votes.
U-Know Yunho was loved for his exemplary and best-doing image, but he was at the center of controversy earlier this year when a report revealed that he violated the quarantine rules.
U-Know Yunho apologized immediately through SNS the next day, but still had to drop out of the program he was starring in as his image was damaged after it was revealed that the place he visited was an illegal entertainment establishment. Since then, U-Know Yunho had had a break before returning with the web entertainment show “Book Disclaimer” in July.
Kim Seon-ho (2940 votes) took second place. Kim Seon-ho, who received great love thanks to the tvN drama “Hometown Cha Cha Cha” was under fire after Nov 17th due to allegations of forced marriage abortion revealed by his ex-girlfriend.
Since then, Kim Seon-ho has apologized to his ex-girlfriend and fans and suspended his activities, but public opinion has re-emerged as the contents of his KakaoTalk conversation with his ex-girlfriend have been released. Accordingly, the advertising industry, which had started to erase Kim Seon-ho’s traces, started to post his advertisement again, signaling the possibility of a comeback.
Seo Ye-ji (1514 votes) was selected for third place. Seo Ye-ji was embroiled in a controversy over gaslighting her boyfriend when her KakaoTalk conversation with her ex-boyfriend Kim Jung-hyun was released to the media in April.
Since then, she has suspended her activities in the entertainment industry after various suspicions such as power abuse and forgery of educational background were raised online. Seo Ye-ji, who had informed the online community of her recent status two months after suspending her activities, recently drew attention once again after the news that she was considering appearing in the tvN drama “Eve’s Scandal.”
In addition, BIGBANG, MC Mong, and Ha Jung-woo were also named as “stars whose return are anticipated despite their controversy.”
