In a recent revelation that has stirred discussions within the K-pop community, Hanse, a member of the third-generation idol group VICTON, found himself at the center of controversy after disclosing the reasons behind his absence from music show promotions.

While Hanse has previously graced the stages of various music shows both as a group member and a solo artist, fans have noticed his conspicuous absence from recent broadcasts.

The revelation came via the popular communication platform Bubble, where Hanse candidly discussed the financial burdens associated with music show appearances.

 According to Hanse, this debt only escalates with each appearance, eventually dissipating only upon completion of the standard seven-year contract – a period during which idols reportedly do not earn any income.

However, Hanse’s frank discussion of these financial challenges elicited mixed reactions from netizens and fans alike.

While some empathized with his transparency, others expressed discomfort at the idea of idols delving into such pragmatic matters, particularly on a platform typically reserved for more lighthearted interactions.

One netizen remarked, “I thought it was just me, but I don’t think talking too realistically in front of the fans is a good idea.”Another questioned the necessity of discussing financial matters, stating, “There’s nothing more draining than talking about deeply rooted resentment.”

Despite the backlash, Hanse remained steadfast in his stance, taking to Instagram to address the situation directly.

“Just overnight, I became a whistleblower, exposer, and emotional appealer, but I’ve happily completed my team activities, and my job satisfaction during promotions was very high. Of course, there were difficult times, too, and I was hurt a lot by it, but when I think of those times, they are precious memories. But don’t judge just because of the words I sent through the fan platform app and the screenshots that have been cropped and posted online.I’ve said this before, but I am not generalizing anything, and I’m not saying the team I was in was like that. And even more so, I’m not complaining that it was unfair, or difficult, or hard.”

In a series of stories, he clarified that his intention was not to generalize or complain but rather to shed light on the realities faced by idols in the industry.

“There is no one these days that isn’t having a hard time. It’s just hwaiting to you and me and them. Although we live in an era of hate, and are being hated on by someone, let’s all be strong. I think we’ve all become sensitive because times are hard.”

He emphasized that his experiences were unique to him and his team and urged fans not to judge based solely on isolated remarks taken out of context.

As the discourse surrounding Hanse’s revelations continues to unfold, his candidness has sparked broader conversations about the financial realities of idol life and the appropriate boundaries between artists and their fan communities.
