T-ara’s Jiyeon is facing allegations by watchful netizens of participating in obscene chatting during her pre-debut days. A video with a girl who looks similar to the idol is making its way around the internet, forcing her agency to come out and address the issue. Yikes!
“The female in the video is not Jiyeon.” stated a representative of Core Contents Media, “Our company has watched and analyzed the video, and even asked Jiyeon whether it was her or not. We came to the conclusion that it is just a female that happens to look like Jiyeon.”
And while Core Contents Media is scrambling to figure out if this is indeed Jiyeon or not, netizens have compiled photos as evidence that it might be her. Check these out. Netizens were keen to notice a dark spot on the girl’s underarm area, similar to that of Jiyeon. Photoshop, anyone?
Jiyeon’s parents also commented on the controversy, “Jiyeon is only a high school student, but she has already been gravely scarred and crying heavily because of this issue. They are wishing for legal actions to be taken against the reporters and media who are criticizing Jiyeon because of pictures that have not even been confirmed, and they wish for this to not happen again.”
Core Contents Media has revealed that they are working with cyber investigators to track down the original uploader of the video and that they will take legal action on the matter.
Another day in Kpop.
