On May 27, fans of former B2ST member Hyunseung announced through a legal representative that they would be standing up for their idol. Their statement is as follows:
"Those who have tormented Hyunseung for over a year by encouraging his departure from B2ST, and also have spread malicious rumors as well as insulting statements have greatly defamed Hyunseung's character. Even after his departure from the group, the malicious comments toward Hyunseung and his family continued. Therefore, we are taking actions against those malicious commenters with the help of our legal representative. Fast and strict restriction is required to stop the insults that continue to defame Hyunseung's character."
Meanwhile, Hyunseung has constantly been involved in malicious rumors regarding drug use, departure from B2ST, and more.
