Published Categorized as Kpop Tagged ,

Song Yu Vin and Kim So Hee were caught in a dating scandal and fans aren’t happy to learn about how people found out!

In the early hours of August 24, a photo of singers Song Yu Vin and Kim So Hee kissing suddenly spread through social media, the former labelmates were then linked to each other and fans began to speculate that they’re dating.

The two used to be in the same agency, Kim So Hee left back in July when he contracted expired while Song Yu Vin is still signed with Music Works and has only debuted with his fellow groupmate Kim Kook Heon today, he used to promote with MYTEEN.

It’s been reported that a sasaeng was the one who actually leaked the private photo, but again, it’ll be difficult to confirm that.

Fans were furious that such a private photo was just leaked illegally by a malicious person who means harm for both idols; the photo was leaked on the day Song Yu Vin and Kim Kook Heon debuted as a duo. Many were wondering how the person who leaked it was able to get their hands on it in the first place.

The photo became such a hot issue because of the circumstances surrounding it and because of that the agency addressed it and confirmed the two idols indeed dated a year ago, “briefly.”

The agency states that they have checked with them, the couple has already broken up a while ago. The agency also warned that they’d be taking strict legal action against anyone who invades their artists’ privacy or defames their character without any leniency.

Song Yu Vin had previously appeared in Kim So Hee’s title track MV back in 2017.

Followed by the agency’s response was Kim So Hee’s own response, she apologized to her fans in an instagram post, she revealed that they relied on each other and dated in the past, but due to ‘busy schedules and many difficult situations,’ the two decided to go back to being close co-workers.

Kim So Hee also expressed her surprise with how the photo was leaked to begin with,

“I am so embarrassed by the picture that spread through unknown channels. I’m so sorry that I’ve caused so many fans to worry about this. From now on, I’ll work harder to show you the best of myself.”

안녕하세요 김소희 입니다. 먼저 새벽에 갑작스러운 사진으로 인해 제일 많이 놀라셨을 팬분들과 또 응원해주시는 많은 분들께 너무 죄송하다는 말씀 꼭 드리고 싶습니다… 당시 같은 회사 동료인 친구와 서로 너무 힘들었던 시기에 응원하고 위로해주며 의지하게 되서 만남을 가졌었습니다. 하지만 바쁜 스케줄과 여러가지 힘든 상황에 부딪혀 다시 친한 동료 사이로 남기로 하였습니다. 알 수 없는 경로를 통해 퍼진 사진으로 인해 저도 너무 당황스럽습니다. 이 일로 인해 응원해주시는 많은 팬 분들께 걱정 끼쳐 드려서 너무 죄송합니다.. 앞으로 더 열심히 하고 최선을 다하는 모습만 보여 드리겠습니다. 팬 여러분들 다시 한번 죄송합니다..

He also explains that the photo was leaked illegally, he says,

“I don’t blame or hate whoever leaked the photo for whatever reason.

I’m so sorry to the fans who must’ve been disappointed by the photo and to the people around me who cared for me. I am truly sorry.”

안녕하세요. 송유빈입니다. 먼저 오늘 새벽 유출된 사진과 관련하여 팬분들과 응원해 주신 많은 분들께 심려 끼쳐 드린 점 진심으로 죄송하다는 말씀을 드리고 싶습니다.. 저는 몇 년 전 오디션 프로그램을 통해 가수의 꿈을 키우며 지금껏 열심히 달려왔습니다. 그리고 끝내 많지 않은 나이에 가수라는 꿈을 이루게 되었습니다. 하지만 가수라는 꿈을 이루어냄과는 다르게 제 눈앞에는 현실이라는 벽이 닥쳐있었습니다. 그 현실은 너무나도 험난한 좌절의 연속이었고 몸과 마음 역시 많이 지쳐있었습니다. 그러던 중 저는 같은 회사의 동료를 만났고 힘든 시기에 서로에게 의지하며 힘이 되어주곤 했습니다. 하지만 서로는 또다시 현실이라는 벽 앞에서 멀어지게 되었고 처음 알고 지내던 동료 사이로 다시 돌아가게 되었습니다. 그리고 오늘 그때의 기억이 담긴 사진이 불법적인 경로를 통해 유출되었습니다. 누군가가 어떠한 이유로 어떻게 유출을 했는지에 대해서 원망하진 않습니다. 다만 그 사진을 보고 실망하셨을 팬분들과 저를 아껴 주시던 주변 분들에게 너무나도 죄송한 마음뿐입니다. 진심으로 죄송합니다. 저 때문에 큰 피해를 입으신 김국헌 형과 김소희 누나께도 진심으로 사과드립니다. 죄송합니다. 정중히 말씀드립니다. 의도치 않은 사적인 사진을 통해 그동안 응원해 주신 많은 분들께 심려를 끼쳐드려 다시 한 번 죄송합니다.
