The Korean NCT fandom has published a long complaint document requesting the withdrawal of member Taeyong from the group due to his bullying controversy that recently re-emerged.
The long document details the reasons why the fandom wants him out of the group, stating he’s harming NCT brand image because he’s a part of the group.
Some of the bold lines go into detail about how his pre-debut controversies affected the way the public perceives the groups and how he tainted their image.
They explain they took SM’s statement at face value and believed Taeyong has been repenting but due to the recent emerging details regarding the bullying controversy, they’re requesting his departure.
The main reasons as stated: (translation credit goes to this)
1. Taeyong has never given a feedback regarding the issues he was dealing with, in this manner, he shouldn’t be allowed to promote
2. The fandom has lost trust in Taeyong regarding the school violence involvement and how he handled the situation so badly
3. By allowing him to continue promotions would be like killing the victim and the informant twice
4. Disrupting NCT’s image and growth, and contributing to their fame decline
They also attempted to trend hashtags in Korean demanding his withdrawal from the group.
However, the international side of the fandom is completely against this. They counter attacked their document trending their own hashtags #AlwaysHereForTaeyong and #태용이의_사랑은_툥프들이_알아expressing their undying support to Taeyong.
SM is yet to respond to the fandom request.
