OVAN is under heavy criticism after what suddenly happened on the charts.
On March 5, OVAN released a new single called “I Need You,” and it suddenly passed BTS’s “ON,” IU’s “I Can Hear Your Heart”, and Zico’s “Anysong,” to hit number one on Genie. Many netizens had no idea who OVAN was and how his song suddenly rose to the top of the charts to beat some of the biggest names in the industry to number 1. Many began accusing him of manipulating charts (sajaegi).
On March 6, OVAN uploaded an instagram story address the issue, he stated that he doesn’t want to be hurt or hate anyone, he promises its ‘not a lie’ and he ‘doesn’t have the place to do this,’ he also apologized to everyone who found his growth suspicious, he ended his statement with,
“I am sorry but it’s not a lie.”
