It all started when LJ (41), who is identified as a former manager for the hip-hop group Dynamic Duo and vocal group Brown Eyed Soul and has debuted by appearing in various variety shows, like the Mnet television program Super Summer (2007), released photos on his Instagram that show an intimate relationship with Hwayoung (25), a former member of T-ara, so claimed within the comments that they were dating.

The photos seemed to show LJ and Ryu Hwayoung sharing meals and occurring vacation together, and LJ posted them with affectionate hashtags like “Ryu Hwayoung,” “I’m always grateful.” Later on, when some commenters found out that LJ seemed to be posting the photos without Ryu Hwayoung’s consent, he replied, “What’s wrong with occurring vacation with my girlfriend? If you would like it, I’ll send you supplementary evidence.”

In one post, LJ mentioned DJ DOC Lee Ha Neul’s marriage news to a girlfriend 17 years his junior and said, “DJ DOC Lee Ha-neul hyung, thank you. Much confidence. Mine’s a year younger than yours.”

After that, people don’t seem to believe his statement. So, LJ revealed text messages that indicate a break-up between him and Hwayoung.

“Hwayoung: We’ve known one another for 2 years and had plenty of happy memories so let’s not hurt one another. Oppa, I’m sorry for making you sad.
It’s hard for me… I’m serious… Let’s not hurt one another.
LJ: I’ve got no memories with you!
Hwayoung: Oppa, I just… want to remain home right away. I don’t want to work out anyone. It’s with great care hard. I snap once I consider you, oppa. thanks for being so good to me.
LJ: I can’t trust you anymore.
Hwayoung: I do know you can’t but trust me this once. I respect you. I liked you.”

Meanwhile, Hwayoung’s reps denied they were ever dating, saying they’re friends.

A spokesperson for Ryu Hwayoung firmly denied any reasonably romantic involvement between the 2, stating, “We have confirmed the matter with [Ryu Hwayoung] herself. She says that she is just close friends with LJ which they’re not a pair.”

Netizens’ Reactions

Comments of criticism are absorbing LJ’s Instagram. Netizens are demanding he stop with Hwayoung’s posts. However, LJ fired back with comments, stating, “Is happening a visit with my girlfriend a sin?”
And also stated, “Even if you guys taunt it, is it wrong on behalf of me to treasure the memories with my loved one? irrespective of if you’re an addict or not. regardless of if you’re visiting worry, help out, or not.”
Netizens have also shown some reaction over this scandal in Naver, with a number of them supporting Hwayoung and calling the person ‘pathetic’, while the opposite still doesn’t want to believe her.

[+702, -76] “They actually matched well though ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ birds of a feather flock together in any case, tsk tsk”

[+483, -39] “Why do ajusshis never know their place? ㅋㅋ Even Kim Gura has been trying to find women born within the 80s thus far, so gross ㅋㅋ”

[+36, -14] “One thing’s as expected, Hwayoung is one big, bad b*tch ㅋㅋ”

[+33, -1] “Isn’t LJ technically a divorced man? ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ For Ryu Hwayoung to even consider that ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ”

[+31, -2] “The woman was selfish, the person was pathetic.”

[+19, -5] “Obviously he did everything that she wanted because he’s older and everything but who wouldn’t be mad if someone like that went around refusing to call him her boyfriend and seeing other guys? In LJ’s Katalks, he told her that he couldn’t trust her anymore in one in every of the messages, which shows that she must’ve lied a large amount to him already. Hwayoung had no problem sharing photos of her in bed together with her sister in their underwear and yet for her to demand LJ to require pictures of them together down implies that she didn’t want to induce caught being lovers with him anymore.”

[+10, -0] “What’s funnier is that he did this exact thing to his ex-wife 10 years ago and now he’s doing it again to Ryu Hwayoung.”

Hyoyoung sent threatening messages to LJ?

After LJ posted intimate photos with Hwayoung, Hyoyoung, as Hwayoung’s twin sister, also left legal threats to LJ within the Instagram comments.

She wrote, “I’m reporting this to the police. I can’t stand it anymore. I’m taking proceedings for defamation of character. I’m leaving a comment here like this since you’re not learning.”

She then stated, “No matter how close you’re, why would you retain posting photos that would easily cause misunderstandings without [Ryu Hwayoung’s] permission?” But, she deleted the comments afterward.

Finally, on August 31st, 2018, LJ deleted the controversial photos with Hwayoung and told OSEN, a Korean news outlet, “Hwayoung still hasn’t talked to me after the controversy. But I couldn’t stop considering her along with her on my social media feed. and that I realized that everything is meaningless now so I deleted them.”

He added, “To be honest, I’m still having a tough time. I’ve been seeing her up until almost every week ago so getting my emotions together isn’t easy. and she or he lives right not far away so I can’t help but consider her.”

Responding to netizens’ hated comments and criticism, LJ commented, “I’ve received hate within the past once I want to promote (as an entertainer). I honestly don’t care about netizens’ reactions. My relationship with Hwayoung is more important.”

He went on, “My peers are supporting me. I’ll get myself together and show a more robust self.”

He also apologized after being contacted by media outlets by stating, “I’m the dummy. I apologize.” And posted a text exchange with Hyoyoung for a few reasons.

LJ: After I am sure of this issue, I’ll stop meeting with Hwayoung.
Hyoyoung: Okay. Oppa, you decide on what you’d like carefully. I’m cheering you on.
LJ: Hehe. Thank you. whether or not I’m not dating Hwayoung, I’ll facilitate your if you wish something.
Hyoyoung: You’re so good to me, oppa. The weather has been hot lately, so I hope you get home soon.
LJ: after I think about how there are far better people than me out there, I feel how it would be my fault that folks think so badly of me in this way.
LJ: How badly did I live that individuals consider me first when things like that happen, and who am I able to talk to? I believe I didn’t live right. I don’t have anyone to speak to, and I want to die.

After going back and forth with reps and LJ’s statements, finally, Hwayoung has spoken up about the reality behind her relationship with LJ.

On August 24th, 2018, Ryu Hwayoung sat down for an interview to personally reply to LJ’s claims and tell her own side of the story. She reported that they’d not dated for 2 years, as LJ had asserted, but that they’d been involved in an especially brief and abusive relationship from which she had been trying to flee for the past two months.

The Truth About Hwayoung’s Relationship with LJ

On August 24th, 2018, Ryu Hwayoung shared a chronology of her relationship with LJ. Her relationship with LJ started from friends to lovers. But within every week, she tried to interrupt him but was unable to try and do so because he made a threat that he was visiting to kill himself.

“It’s been approximately one year since I actually need to know LJ,” said Ryu Hwayoung. “He was so good to me that I asked him if he had feelings on behalf of me, and he said no, so I assumed he was treating me sort of a younger sister.”

“However, about two months ago,” she continued, “he confessed his [romantic] feelings on behalf of me. Because I felt that he had been sincere in his actions over the past year, I took an interest in him for less than his heart and mind, not his outward appearance, and that I spent your time seriously considering our relationship.”

Hwayoung Breaks Up with LJ

On August 24th, 2018, Hwayoung shared her side of the story, revealing that her relationship with LJ has turned abusive every week.

According to Ryu Hwayoung, it only took a couple of weeks for her to appreciate that LJ wasn’t what he had seemed. “Not long afterward,” she said, “due to the violent tendencies and excessively possessive nature that he had been hiding up until then, I made a decision that it wasn’t a decent idea for us to become lovers. Within every week, I asked him to return to merely being acquaintances.”

She went on, “I tried to console him and made an attempt to stay on good terms with him, but whenever [I tried to finish things], he would stop eating and drinking, or he would threaten to kill. In the end, he began threatening that he would call reporters and have them write stories [about our relationship]. He even showed up at my house without permission.”

She alleges that the link turned abusive.

“For about two months, I cautiously tried ending with him, comforting him, and even getting angry with him,” she recalled. “But each time, he would respond by giving me gifts that I didn’t want or by forcing me to travel to meals together with his friends or acquaintances. He used the very fact that I used to be a figure to force me into a disadvantageous situation.” She added, “LJ told the managers at my agency that he had more evidence [of our relationship] and sent them threatening texts saying, ‘I’ll stop if you publicly announce that Hwayoung and that I dated for 2 years.’ … at the moment, I used to be dragged around against my will for 2 months.”

“Because I didn’t want to be dragged around anymore, I spoke to him firmly about our relationship within the early hours of the morning on August 22nd. However, as usual, he responded with violence. Not only that, but he took away my telephone by force and entered my house without permission, so I had no choice but to scream and defend myself.” She went on, “One by one, people began to assemble, and also the police eventually arrived and sent him home after trying to calm him down. However, the very next day, he posted those photos [of us] on Instagram.”

Hwayoung then explained why she felt the requirement to talk up.

“Because [LJ] was someone who was once an honest friend of mine, I wanted to finish things smoothly. But matters have gotten out of hand because of his one-sided lies and exaggerations, and it’s now become a good shock not only to me but also to my parents. so as to guard me, I believed that I needed to publicly announce the precise truth.” She continued, “I spent countless days crying alone and trembling in fear thanks to his selfish, inconsiderate love and his threats. However, in spite of that, I’ve got emotional the courage to publicly announce the reality so, as a woman, I’m not unduly mistreated.”

Finally, she explained why she denied the connection earlier which she’s considering legal proceeding.

“I’m afraid that individuals won’t understand why I didn’t want to publicly reveal my brief relationship with an individual that I found so terrifying that I considered him abnormal. But I’m putting my life on the road and mustering the courage [to tell the truth]. I won’t suffer in silence anymore.”

“I’m discussing a powerful legal response,” she said. “As a victim of dating violence, I hope that this type of thing never happens again.”

However, LJ passed through Hwayoung in an interview of his own, claiming that she was abusive within the relationship and providing rebuttals to her assertions.

When asked about Ryu Hwayoung’s claims of an abusive relationship, LJ said, “It’s ridiculous. The folks that knew us both are saying that [what she said] is making them mad. there have been actually over and over when Hwayoung hit me. Once, she slapped me ahead of our acquaintances. Thinking that I had nothing going on behalf of me compared to her, I let it go.”

LJ said that Ryu Hwayoung’s claims that he broke into her house also are false. “We had each other’s door passcodes, and Hwayoung would also freely come and go from my house once I wasn’t there.” On the instance when the police got involved in one of their disputes, LJ said that he was trying to prevent Hwayoung, who screamed and was close to settling the steps. “I was the one that was visiting call the police, but when it got loud, the neighbors called the police.” Explaining what Ryu Hwayoung said about him forcefully taking her phone, LJ said her claims are exaggerated, which all he did was to ask to determine her phone when he thought she was texting another man. LJ continued, “Can you head to hotels together and are available and go from someone’s house when they’re ‘dragging you around’? During our time together, I used to be just about Hwayoung’s driver. Everyone around us knows this. When she visited to get her nails done, I waited for her in the lead, and that I became her mode of transportation.”

LJ explained the outing of their relationship was thanks to him being upset.

“I acknowledge that it absolutely was wrong to post the photos without her permission since she’s a young actress. But I’m confident within the truth. it’s true that we dated, and that I won’t be deleting the photos, because that will mean that I’m admitting to everything. whether or not she takes legal proceedings, I’m confident.” When asked about what it absolutely was that made him angry before posting the photos, LJ said Ryu Hwayoung had put all of his things that were at her house outside. “While we were dating, she would always say ‘let’s break up’ at the tiniest things, but if I took her on a visit or did anything to form her feel better, she would suddenly start calling me ‘honey’.”

He said he thought they’d compose again but got angry when he saw that she had posted photos of her and another man at her house.

As for where this may go, LJ says he doesn’t know.

“I don’t know if it’s right to only do nothing. But to try and do that, there’s an excessive amount of that’s frustrating about matters. I would like to reveal more details, but brooding about Hwayoung, I don’t want to travel that far. And that I should consider the people around us that are involved, too. this complete situation is crazy and difficult.”

It is quite difficult to understand which one is telling the reality. thanks to her past scandals in T-ara, netizens have shown reluctance in taking and believing Ryu Hwayoung’s statement. But, it looks like during this case, netizens also feel that the man’s side of the story is kind of shady. So, let’s just look forward to the 000 truth to return out, and let’s hope for the simplest for the 2 of them.
