A member of a 7-member boy group was embroiled in controversy after being caught selling a gift from a fan.
On the 28th, a member of a 7-member boy group was embroiled in controversy after being caught selling a gift from a fan. A post posted by Mr. B, who said he was a fan of idol member A, captured a conversation he had with him on a second-hand trading platform is spreading through online communities.
According to the content, around the middle of last month, Mr. A posted on a second-hand trading platform that he was selling a certain brand’s products for 150,000 won. He added, “I bought it directly from Japan this fall for about 270,000 to 280,000 won, but after washing it, the printing got a little scratchy so I couldn’t wear it, so I’m posting it for a cheaper price.”
In addition, identity verification was added, and after confirming this, Mr. B received a reply through a conversation with Mr. A, saying, “I’m sorry. I think I was not thinking.”
In response, Mr. B asked for an explanation of the situation, saying, “You know I like you a lot. If it makes sense to me, I will understand and move on.”
Then, Mr. A said, “Because it was the end of the year, I had a lot to think about and had a lot of worries. At that time, I originally solved it by buying the things I wanted to buy. But I couldn’t bring myself to open my hands to my parents, so I thought and acted too briefly. I’m so sorry.”
As this information became known, reactions from netizens were mixed. “It may be upsetting to the fans, but it’s also sad to see an idol who got caught selling something because he or she didn’t have the money to apologize and explain.” “Just because it’s a gift from a fan doesn’t mean you have to keep it for the rest of your life.” “I understand the fans’ feelings, but why would they have traded used items if they were having such a hard time financially? The dominant response from both Mr. A and Mr. B was that they both understood.
Some people said, “Are you selling fan gifts not to cover living expenses but to buy things you want to buy?” “Making money by selling fan gifts is the worst.” “Your passion for second-hand transactions is so great that you even verify your identity.” “I’m selling it out of my own mind, but isn’t it too embarrassing to see my fans?” There are also netizens who point out Mr. A’s attitude.
At the same time, Mr. B’s attitude is also bitter, such as “Why are you making it public when you have received an apology?”, “I explained it well, but posting again is also problematic,” “Giving a gift is the end, the rest is up to the person who received the gift,” and “The answer is not to pay tribute.” It is a reaction that evokes.
