“Hello, this is King Kong by Starship.

Recently we have been able to confirm that false rumors about our artist (Lee Dong Wook) are being spread, about him being involved in a special religious sect.

Besides, we will also be taking legal action against anyone who shows the behavior of spreading or reproducing these rumors that deface our artist’s character and good image.

In 2019, many started spreading a rumor that Go Joon Hee had been involved in the Burning Sun scandal. She was rumored of being involved in Seungri’s prostitution solicitation and illegal drug use at his club. Many started to believe the rumors because the two took a picture together.

Go Joon Hee soon had to clarify her relationship with Seungri, as she revealed that they weren’t close at all. She said, “I only went there because of the brand. The CEO of the brand was sitting next to me. [Seungri] joked that he will only wear that brand from now on, and he uploaded the photo with the tag ‘We’re All Secret Members Of The Brand”. I don’t know. Hashtagging is his right.”

Go Joon Hee also denied claims of being involved in the scandal, and filed multiple lawsuits against netizens who spread the false rumors. However, Go Joon Hee’s image took quite a hit, and she was practically forced to go into hiatus for nearly a year. It wasn’t until 8 months after the whole scandal began that she was able to finally sign with a new agency to begin her career again.
