All members know that they have been threatened so far. A few months ago, I heard about the four members contract termination through the article. That part is sick. The members will also feel sick when they hear we are being investigated by the police.“

“Moon Youngil PD assaulted me for four hours. Even in the situation where I was in pain and bleeding, Kim Changhwa didn’t help. After that, Moon Youngil PD assaulted for two or three more hours. I remember the whole incident at work as clear as yesterday.
I think this abuse should never happen to other idols. We will tell you our stories while being investigated.”
