News report a 14U-member had a relationship with his company director + slept with a foreign fan

BG Entertainment officially announced the disbandment of 14U. Contrary to prior reports, they say that the decision was made between both company and the members of 14U. The members will apparently be all pursuing individual journeys towards their dream and future.

A couple of hours later, news reports came out that one of the members (early 20s) had inappropriate sexual relations (inappropriate = affair???) with a female company director in her late 30s. They were reportedly caught by the other 14U members and other staff while they were in Japan. When the families of the other members learned of this, they demanded the contracts be terminated.

There's also another report claiming that the same member had sexual relations with a foreign fan as well.

ages vary from 1992 to 2001! The report says the member is in his early twenties.
(some more info I found, the maknae only joined the band in February this year.)

She's significantly older than him and more specifically a higher up in his comapny, so we definitely shouldn't ignore the possibility there was coercion at work here.

That's disgusting and that woman might be a predator. I hope someone will investigate this "relationship".

The translated comments on NB were acting so brand new about this. If any member of one of the top tier groups was exposed as dating a higher up from the company, the reaction from fans wouldn't be good. And it'd be even worse if that member was also found to be dating fans.

It's cute how netizens are so shocked about this. Let's not act like this hasn't happened before in the industry.

That's the thing, they weren't even shocked, more like "who cares if they're in love and she wasn't married" and "is this really something to disband over??" (at least the ones I was reading). But they're only saying that bc this group is nugu, this would be a huge scandal if it happened to BTS or NCT or something.

right? Men in their young 20s... FUCKING!?! OH MY GAWWWWD! Idk if he was groomed or he just likes noonas. The fan thing is def inappropriate tho, but basically every western band in existence has fucked their fans (1D included... and let's not get started on 5 seconds of summer) so it's not shocking at all.

Now I wanna know which member it is though. I bet I could figure it out cuz Ho recognize Ho.

20 or 27, she is his boss. It's an inappropriate relationship.

I didn't realize it was his superior, as opposed to an employee in the same company. The power dynamic changes things for sure

This is fucked


pepsi_twist9 13th-May-2019 05:44 pm (UTC)
That's a not okay power dynamic.

Also maybe the families just wanted an excuse to terminate the contracts. I mean, was 14U doing well?

Low power people in the industry sleeping with high power people just seems so common. From the women who are forced into it just to feature in a song or get a song produced, to the people like Jang Ja-yeon...

IDK how to feel about this because even if she was abusing power... he abused power by fucking a fan? I don't really have any sympathy to give him.
hallyujah 14th-May-2019 05:31 am (UTC)
people can both be victims and perpetrators. Can be deserving of sympathy and accountability at the same time.
krissasaur 14th-May-2019 06:39 am (UTC)
True, but I don't know him, so I don't care enough to give it. I think if it was an idol I had invested time in I would probably feel that way, though.
hallyujah 14th-May-2019 05:00 pm (UTC)
ya and he...just may be a ho tbh.
