On the show, it seemed like she said, “In many idol groups, the rapper is the most good-looking ones, because they can’t sing. This is offensive to real rappers.” Combined with the fact that EXO’s rapper Chanyeol was on the episode, it led the fans to guess that this comment was targeting him.
However, Hyorin posted on her Instagram on November 7, saying “No, it’s not true at all. I’ve been set up… Malicious editing… I’m so sad.” She added, “I did not say this against EXO’s Chanyeol at all… He showed an amazing stage, and I was glad to have this experience with him… Please don’t misunderstand me, sob.”
Unfortunately, there are still many upset fans of EXO commenting on Hyorin’s Instagram.
