Eddy Kim’s agency has released an official statement regarding his involvement in a group chatroom that included Jung Joon Young and seven other singers.
Later that day, Mystic Entertainment responded by confirming that Eddy Kim had been a member of the chatroom in question and had already been called in for questioning by the police. However, the agency denied Eddy Kim’s involvement in the filming or spreading of any illegal footage.
The agency’s full statement is as follows:
Hello, this is Mystic Entertainment.
We are informing you of our position on the report made by MBC’s “Newsdesk” about Eddy Kim on April 4.
On March 31, Eddy Kim went to the police station, where he underwent questioning for approximately two hours.
While it is true that Eddy Kim was a member of the group chatroom, it has been confirmed that he did not film or spread any illegal footage, such as hidden-camera videos. However, he was investigated [by the police] because it came to light that he had posted one sexual photo [in the group chatroom] that had been floating around on the internet.
Eddy Kim has become deeply aware of the gravity of this matter, and he is reflecting very seriously [on his behavior]. We sincerely apologize for giving you cause for concern.
