Roy Kim revealed to be in chatroom with Jung Joon Young + to be questioned

On April 2, it was revealed that Roy Kim is the singer that recent reports have been referring to as celebrity Kim. Furthermore, the report states that he will be called in for a witness interview.

According to the report, Roy Kim is one of the previously unidentified celebrities in a group chatroom where Jung Joon Young shared illegal videos.

The report says Roy Kim was in a seven-member chatroom that included Jung Joon Young, Choi Jong Hoon, and more. Currently, reports claim that there are 23 group chatrooms and 16 individuals related to Jung Joon Young’s sharing of illegal videos and photos.

A source from the police said, “13 of the 16 people will be questioned,” and, “Seven people have been booked, and there is a chance that there will be more depending on the results of the witness interviews. As for whether or not [Roy Kim] will be booked, that will be reviewed after the questioning.”

A source from his agency commented, “We haven’t heard anything yet. We will check with him as he is currently going to school in the United States.”

I went to see if I had songs from him, it looks like I didn’t so I didn’t have to delete any

I mean, we knew this was coming but still.... The fact that there are still people who have been heavily rumored to be involved but haven't put out any statement makes me think if they're just biding their time to see what gets revealed so that they only admit what gets found. Not that rejecting the accusations means they're free of guilt (obvious example: Seungri) but better than leaving people to think did they/did they not. Like Jinwoon and Choi Tae Joon

Is it their mothers' fault?
This, is partially why... trying to find a fault in women for men's action

Yea hes gonna stay in the USA for as long as possible.

I wonder if his university can expel him for this, or after Korean authorities investigated him. I don't think they want to have a criminal among their students

This is why I have a hard time believing Zico spent hours looking at a contact list.
modestgoddess79 2nd-Apr-2019 08:50 pm (UTC)
I just hope they have the evidence to catch Zico.

I knew he's been rumoured since the beginning and there's no reason not to believe the names listed but this one still stings.

we kinda already knew this right? it's not unexpected

also, i remember in december during the year end shows i was watching one of the live streams and when roy kim came on EVERYBODY, no matter their bias and who they were waiting for to perform, was praising him SO much, saying how much they love his voice and stuff

it makes me so sick, idk, i feel so disgusted

Well shit.....Been worried about this since JJY got identified. Roy's silence on social media was very suspicious. Many said it was because he was working on his dissertation but I doubted it because he seemed too close to JJY.

This one really does hurt me.
gathyou 2nd-Apr-2019 01:33 pm (UTC)
Well... he was friend with JJY so it was only a matter of time.
I wasn't familiar with his songs - just answered his survey for his studies as one of the many that gets posted on r/kpop and other kpop sites - so I'm not really saddened by this. Still offering hugs to anyone that was his fan before the scandal and needs one right now <3
dior_chic 2nd-Apr-2019 01:51 pm (UTC)
Oh he was that basic survey guy? I totally missed that

Yea I didn’t know much about him as a singer, which means I’m not disappointed
