Roy Kim’s Name Removed From Forest In Gangnam

The Gangnam District Office has decided to remove the plaque that had Roy Kim’s name written on it for the forest that was initially named after him.

The forest, which is located in the middle of the Gangnam District, was set up by Roy Kim’s fans in 2013 to commemorate the release of the singer’s first studio album “Love Love Love” after he became the winner of Mnet’s survival program “Superstar K 4.”

On April 19, a source from the Gangnam District Office said, “After Roy Kim was booked as a suspect [of spreading illegally filmed photos], [we received] many complaints from residents who frequently use the park. Because the public opinion [of Roy Kim] is not positive, we determined that it would be wrong to keep ‘Roy Kim Forest.'”

Another source stated, “The Gangnam District Office made an independent decision to remove Roy Kim’s name [from the forest] without negotiating with [his] fans. There is no trace of Roy Kim in the forest [anymore].”

Earlier this month, Roy Kim was revealed to be one of the members in the chatroom with Jung Joon Young. The singer admitted to spreading illegally filmed photos but not filming.
