LAYSHA’s Goeun Responds To Accusations Of “Noise Marketing” Over Hidden Camera Footage + Provides Additional Information
LAYSHA’s Goeun took to Instagram to respond to accusations of “noise-marketing” following her post on August 30 where she spoke out against extreme invasion of the group’s privacy with hidden cameras.
Her Instagram post reads:
“I’m Goeun of LAYSHA, a four-member girl group who began promoting since 2015. I’m writing this to deliver some additional information regarding the hidden camera crime. I deleted my previous post and wrote a new one. After uploading my message yesterday, I received tons of comments and direct messages. At the same time, the incident spread on the internet and on public TV networks.
“Although I knew there would be people like this, I feel hurt to see so many people straightforwardly asking if this is just noise marketing. Some people around me ask if [the situation] got worse after I disclosed the truth, but no, it didn’t.
“With each member of LAYSHA, they are LAYSHA members and members of society, but they are also their parents’ precious daughters, so I thought it was just a claim for basic human rights. Like I said in the previous post, we were determined that the perpetuator would begin to reflect and wake up, and that there wouldn’t be any more victims after exposing the truth. However, I find the fact that some people just looked at the sensational photos and words and did not see anything else as killing the victim twice.
“In addition, there were many people who were suspicious of our agency JS ENT. due to the camera angle or location. The previous post was posted after being checked many times, and because of many inquiries and public sentiment about this situation, our CEO and staff are having an incredibly hard time due to the company communication system being tied up.
“JS Ent. I’m here to say that those people have nothing to do with this situation, so please stop commenting with rumors and contacting them with malicious comments.
“Furthermore, we’ve confirmed that the team from a certain ‘web variety’ show we filmed in the past placed the small cameras in various places, filmed us, and maliciously spread [the videos]. They did not notify us beforehand that they would film our bodies or that type of mature content. We didn’t know it was that type of program at all, because we merely wanted to film with the concept of showing fans LAYSHA’s everyday lives.
“We will confirm the validity of this situation with the related person in charge and proceed with their sure punishment according to the procedure. As notified before, through a lawful method.
“We’re so thankful to everyone who took their precious time to worry about us and care about the situation that we don’t know what to do. We promise we will become a stronger LAYSHA from now on, and we thank each and every person who read this long message.”
