FT Island's Choi Jonghoon wants Seolhyun to demonstrate a whitening skincare routine

FT Island's Choi Jonghoon, whose name was recently mentioned in a #metoo post, decided that bad press is better than no press and made a controversial statement at the press conference for his new beauty show "The Beauty".

When asked who he would like to invite to the beauty show, he replied, "Seolhyun has a slightly darker skintone and I think it'd be nice if she showed how to whiten her skin through a skincare regime."

Netizens are obviously nhf his bullshit:

1. [+603, -11] Is he really not going to clarify his scandal???

2. [+574, -14] Hul, he's really not going to clarify his scandal?

3. [+532, -8] It's this guy, right??

4. [+78, -3] But does skin need to be white at all?

5. [+52, -5] So sick of the media trying to brainwash everyone into thinking that skin needs to be white in order to be beautiful. By that logic, black people can never be beautiful in Korea then. I have white skin myself but find it really wrong when the media promotes ideas like this

6. [+47, -0] So... he's just going to brush it under the rug?

7. [+45, -5] What's wrong with her dark skin? Why does she need to be white? ㅋㅋㅋ

8. [+39, -0] He should at least clarify that it's not him if it's not him

9. [+35, -3] Why do you care about Seolhyun's skin???

10. [+34, -3] I'd be pissed if I was Seolhyun and heard this

11. [+29, -2] Why should she be white?! Why don't you demonstrate for us how to become taller then?

12. [+26, -3] What is this spinach looking kid doing telling Seolhyun to do this or that with her skin;;

"this spinach looking kid" LMAO That's weirdly accurate

what is he even doing in this kind of shows? why??

i wonder if this show was filmed before his #metoo controversy .... like the only thing he should be doing publicly right now should be a proper apology and some kind of compentation for his victim

why for some idols its so hard to be a decent human being????

You would think he would fade into oblivion but when do men ever do?

LMAO @ that spinach kid comment.

I’m glad k-netizens aren’t here for this but weren’t they just shitting on international fans for removing filters that white-washed idols or whatever?

Either way, men continue to be trash.

Love my other fti boys but I need a (potentially permanent) break from this guy, all I feel these days is anxiety or irritation whenever I so much as see his name :/

Seriously Jonghoon, you could be remember as the guy with a sculptured greek god look but you just have to open your mouth and do all this questionable behaviors. :( And if the #metoo rumor is really him, I have nothing else to say. DX

I love comment 5 because people always act like black fans don't have a right to be mad when idols say stuff like this, they act like it's just an issue between Koreans when it's not.

he's trash, like he will never be on her level, obviously she's gorgeous the way she is which is why she has so many endorsements

Everytime he opens his mouth some shit pours out of it
