2018 has been a very interesting year with many things happening from the get-go, some idols and actors rose with their performances while others slipped into scandals.
Korean news outlet Sports Today has picked the worst people with the worst controversies in 2018 explaining the decision behind each choice.
Here is their list:
Comedian Kim Saeng Min (#MeToo)
“He brought up good reputation with sincere and good image and was finally getting his golden time in 25 years, he blew it away with his own hands.” –Reporter Kim Na Yeon
Kim Saeng Min was embroiled in controversy back in April 2018 when a woman came forward to dispatch with a letter explaining suffering sexual harassment by him.
Since then he stepped down from all the seven shows he was in and his podcast was also cancelled.
Yang Hyun Suk (the issue with MIXNINE debut cancellation)
Reporter Yoon Hye Young says,
“With YG’s power he said he’ll make the debut happen and put trainees in a competition show but then cancelled their debut because the program flopped.
He created more controversy going up against one of the trainee’s labels taking legal action with a countersuit. Not even a year has passed and he created a similar show ‘YG treasure box.’ The irony in his idea is shocking everyone.”
Actor Lee Seo Won (Sexual harassment)
“I was surprised three times by the boldness, lack of knowledge, and finally running away to the military following his sexual harassment.” -reporter Kim Sat Byul
Nancy Lang x Wang (Controversy regarding marriage and divorce)
“Issue makers with marriage, fights and divorce.” – Reporter Han Ye Ji
Rapper Microdot (Parent’s fraud)
“Parents deceived the people of their town while their son deceived the viewers.” – Reporter Kim Hyun Min
“I was disappointed because he was a likable star with a friendly and bright image” -Reporter Kim Su Young
Lee Jin Min CP (the manipulation of “Heart Signal 2”)
“It was a variety program but there were many controversies.” – reporter Moon Soo Yeon
