Starship Entertainment Clarifies Rumor Involving MONSTA X’s Shownu
Updated October 31 KST:
The tvN variety show “Amazing Saturday” is scheduled to air an episode with MONSTA X’s Shownu and Joohoney as guests this week. On the evening of October 31, a source from the show confirmed to outlet Xportsnews, “The episode of ‘Amazing Saturday—Do Re Mi Market’ that Shownu appears in will air as planned on November 2.”
Starship Entertainment has released an official statement regarding MONSTA X’s Shownu.
On October 31, Han Seo Hee posted screenshots of a direct message received by Jung Da Eun, who previously made claims against Wonho. This direct message was sent by a man saying that his wife cheated on him with Shownu and included a screenshot of a text message from Shownu’s legal representative. The text from the legal representative said that Shownu was unaware of the woman being in a relationship.
Starship Entertainment released the following statement regarding this matter:
Shownu was in contact with the woman in question prior to her marriage. The woman got married recently around August, but our agency confirmed that Shownu did not know at all because the woman did not tell Shownu.
Her husband contacted the agency, so we met up with him, and the whole story was explained. Afterwards, Shownu, who belatedly found out about her marriage, no longer contacted this woman at all. Shownu revealed that he would not get involved in the matters of a married couple’s relationship, and a text was sent via the law firm to confirm this stance.
Regardless of the situation, we express apologies for causing emotional pain to the involved individuals and bringing trouble to fans. Furthermore, as an agency with the duty to protect our artists, we ask for your understanding of the possibility that we may inevitably take legal action regarding excessive misunderstandings and speculations.
