RIIZE’s Seunghan faced a barrage of allegations following the release of alleged “couple photos,” triggering a storm of controversy. In the wake of these posts, a wave of netizen outrage ensued, demanding the idol’s removal from the group. Consequently, Seunghan felt compelled to issue a personal apology.
Despite his statement and efforts to make amends, it appears that certain Korean fans continue to harbor negative sentiments toward Seunghan.
However, amidst this turbulent period, NMIXX’s Sullyoon has emerged as a beacon of positivity, earning accolades from netizens for her recent actions on a music show.
Resounding Cheers for All But Seunghan
RIIZE members took turns introducing themselves to the audience, a customary practice. The applause and cheers that greeted the group members were notably distinct when it came to Seunghan’s turn.
Observant netizens picked up on the subdued response, with the cheers for Seunghan appearing noticeably muted.
Fortunately, MC Sullyoon appeared to be attuned to the situation and took it upon herself to cheer loudly for Seunghan, embodying her role as a sunbaenim (senior in the industry).
