LOEN SPEAKS

With the recent surfacing of a photo showing IU and Eunhyuk together that was accidentally revealed through IU’s Twitter, fans and netizens alike had been awaiting an official statement from the artists’ respective agencies.

It seems Loen Entertainment is the first to break their silence as they have just released an official statement on the issue:



Hello. This is Loen Entertainment.

This is an official statement regarding the picture that was revealed early this morning through IU’s Twitter.

First, we bow our heads and sincerely apologize for causing concern to all the representatives and all the fans of IU and Super Junior.

The revealed photo was from this summer when IU was very sick and Eunhyuk had come to visit her at her home, and was taken then when they sat on the sofa together; it was revealed to the outside due to IU’s mistake through her related photo uploading service while IU was making a mention on Twitter.

IU is sincerely sorry for bringing harm to her sunbae Eunhyuk due to her error.

Lastly, IU and Eunhyuk are close sunbae-hoobae who have been close since IU’s debut, Eunhyuk is close to the point that he has even dined with IU’s mother. We ask that you do not exaggerate or make assumptions about IU and Eunhyuk’s relationship due to this incident.

We will return to greet you as a more matured agency after having learned from this incident. We apologize once again.

We are sorry.

Loen Entertainment

This is true, the backlash for him probably won't be anything substantial versus IU, whose entire image is kinda ruined by this situation. People are worried he'll go the army for this, but probably unlikely cause I don't see too many people caring about his end. Worst case is a couple of ahujssis will be pissed but they never do anything (see: T-ara/Hwayoung case).

Meanwhile IU will likely be slut shammed to death for defiling oppa and donghae's lover.

seriously, all that sm needs to do is to send him to 'self reflect' for a while, no need to be much, just lay low for a couple weeks and it will be forgotten.

and like you said, iu will carry the scarlet letter and this cast a shadow on her career for a really long time.

i mean, if this was only a dating scandal it wouldn't be this bad, but everyone and their mom are sure that it was a after sex selca and god forbid a girl to have sex before her marriage!

With Korea really big on Christianity and moral/traditional values, I'm sure the scandal will be dragged out for a while.
