MLD Entertainment Denies Dating Rumors About Momoland's JooE

MLD Entertainment has denied rumors about MOMOLAND’s JooE being in a relationship.

On September 4, two photos were posted on an online community with the title, “JooE caught on a date.” The photos showed JooE in comfortable clothing walking arm in arm with an unidentified man. The photo quickly spread through social media.

Her agency has now responded to the rumors and denied them. On September 6, MLD Entertainment released the following statement.

Hello, this is MLD Entertainment.

We would like to give our official statement regarding a rumor about MOMOLAND’s JooE that has been spreading online.

After checking with JooE herself, we have confirmed that the man in the photo is a longtime friend of JooE’s who accompanied her to purchase some sound equipment.

We have confirmed that the photos were edited with malicious intent and purposefully spread.

We had been staying silent as we did not believe the rumors deserved a response, but as our artist has expressed that she is experiencing distress due to the baseless rumors, we plan to take legal action against the person who first posted the photos, as well as against malicious commenters.

Thank you.

what are the laws in Korea for posting candid pictures of celebs? Is legal action really possible?

dating should not be a scandal

It really shouldn't be. The companies make such a huge deal out of it.

Because many fans make a huge deal out of it. And it doesn't help that companies also feed into 'the fans are our girlfriends/boyfriends' narrative.

I’m tired of dating-related scandals, let idols date who they want in private. Unless there’s a power imbalance or abuse, it really shouldn’t be an issue.

really these headlines should read 'company denies rumors about idol name being normal'

what year is this? i'm so bored and tired of idols doing normal things being treated as shocking/wrong

it's not a scandal, and I just hope that this does not hinder JooE's activities a la Daisy

Can’t wait for the day that dating becomes normalized in Kpop and artists are no longer put in foundation that’s a couple shades too light for them. But both of those days probably won’t be coming anytime soon.

Man, this group is getting hit with a lot of "dating" scandals, aren't they? (Daisy, Nancy, now JooE). I feel bad for them.

Can't wait for the day idols stop 'being caught' on a date and are left to live their lives, holy shit
daynr 6th-Sep-2019 07:20 pm (UTC)
that does not look particularly date-ish to me.

This group is getting a lot of so-called scandals, who is so mad at these hard-working girls?
ramenhime 6th-Sep-2019 07:39 pm (UTC)
omg momoland literally can't catch a break i am still waiting for daisy to return
myrrhcat 6th-Sep-2019 08:46 pm (UTC)
i mean, the arm holding makes it look like a date. but so what. i hope she has or finds a great partner who values her, she's gotten enough hate.

have you guys read netizens comments? writing things like "there's no friendship between a man and a woman" really just proves that k-netz are a bunch of middle schoolers
lechuza_yoya 6th-Sep-2019 11:09 pm (UTC)
in what way were those pictures edited ??
rainstormraider 7th-Sep-2019 12:55 am (UTC)
Do K-netizensand fans not have friends irl? How is one outing with a friend a date now? These people really need to log off and get out more.

If MLDE benches her, we riot
sciencebottle 7th-Sep-2019 05:04 am (UTC)
Sheesh momoland really can't catch a break huh? Let the girls live goddamn

Who cares? Really. Their other members are being blacklisted but so many people don't care. Break the mold; make it a mmld instead of a mold. Change how people view kpop idols and dating.
