Singer Im Jae Bum‘s agency has opened up about the controversial remarks made by PD Shin Won Ho.
On September 13th, PD Shin Won Ho of “Happy Sunday – Qualifications of Men” sent a series of tweets to a person who seemed to be a crew member of Im Jae Bum’s current show, “Carried By The Wind“.
Shin PD tweeted, “Tsk tsk. Why did you manage Im Jae Bum’s show? Because you’re a girl, I will trust that he won’t, but still be careful. He’s an idiot that throws punches around often. So are you in America right now?”.
He then sent another tweet, saying, “Anyways, they themselves probably don’t have great expectations from him. Just do what you have to and run. Run. Call me when you get here. I’ll buy you a drink”
These series of tweets have since been deleted.
On September 16th, Im Jae Bum’s agency, Yedang Entertainment, stated, “We found out about the content of this controversy through the news. Because those words are completely unfounded, we don’t believe that it even deserves a response. We do not know anything about Shin Won Ho PD and have no intentions of replying to his personal sentiments“.
They added, “First of all, Im Jae Bum is currently in the States to film ‘Carried By The Wind’. His point of contact is also accompanying him on this trip so we were not able to confirm his thoughts or state of mind regarding this controversy. We are just sad that this controversy broke out right before the start of his new program“.
Im Jae Bum is currently participating in a variety road show called “Carried By The Wind”, and is acting as the captain of the musical expedition. He will begin the journey in San Francisco, before moving onto the rest of California, and other States.
The show will display concerts with local musicians of the visited towns and discuss the process of composing. “Carried By The Wind” will be broadcasting its first episode on September 25th.
