In NCT U's recent airing of 'ON AIR NCT SHOW - Day 2' through the group's live 'V' app channel, member Taeyong referred to his past scamming controversy.

During the airing, the NCT U members had good things to say about Taeyong, such as "He's good at giving us serious advice. If there's something we're doing wrong, he tells us straight up."


To this, Taeyong replied, "When I was younger I made a mistake with some wrong actions, so I thought that I would like for the members and dongsaengs I love to not make the same mistakes. So I like to let them know what I know. I don't want them to become like me."


Back in 2014, Taeyong was the center of a scamming controversy, where netizens exposed various accounts of the idol, then in middle and high school, lying to sell broken or damaged figurines, charging unreasonable prices, and cursing at people who tried to receive a refund. Due to a flurry of angered netizens, SM Entertainment had issued an apology on behalf of Taeyong, with, "Taeyong is deeply reflecting on the mistakes he made during his middle school days. We apologize to everyone who may have suffered negatively. We will work hard to raise Taeyong into an artist with good character and great skills."


In light of NCT U's recent debut, Taeyong's past controversy has recently resurfaced among fans and netizens. While some are criticizing the revitalization of the controversy with, "It seems like people are making such a big deal out of an ignorant mistake in the past", some netizens continue to bash Taeyong's "character".

 

What do you make of the idol's controversy resurfacing after debut?

I liked the fact that not only did he own up to his mistakes but he is also opening up to his dongsaengs about his past experience. He is by far my favorite member in NCT U and NCT 127...Taeyong fighting!!:))

stop basing your opinion of someone on previous experiences, you need to look at what is in front of you now and judge that

Honestly, people hating on Taeyong are just ignorant and looking for somebody to talk trash about. People make mistakes. We're all human. Some of us choose to learn and grow from those mistakes, which is obviously the case with Tae. Clearly he feels bad about what he has done. 😑 People, if someone takes the time to apologize for past mistakes that they obviously wish they never committed please be more kind and understanding. 💗

People need to know that everyone is human and that we all make these mistakes. What happened in the past doesn't matter anymore because I believe Taeyong has learnt his mistakes and changed into a better person. So done with all this hate

After watching NCT's shows on the V App I feel a lot of sincerity from Taeyong and the members seems to like him a lot too so I do believe that he regrets his mistakes and wants to be a better person now. Hopefully his past mistakes won't stop him from growing as a person and an artist cuz he's very talented too.
