On May 4, a post titled "I apologize to Seventeen fans," stated, "I am the writer of the post accusing Seventeen of trashing fan letters. First, I apologize to all Seventeen fans, or Carat, who were hurt by my wrong report. I am providing justification to the issue since I created the whole thing." The netizen then explains why the photos used in the accusation is irrelevant to Seventeen.
First, the shopping bag in the photo has a picture of a different idol group. A fan would not be giving Seventeen a present in a bag with a different group picture on it.
Next, the name 'Lee Ji Hoon' follows the 'From' part of the purple letter. Originally, it was attempting to accuse Seventeen's member Lee Ji Hoon of throwing away the letter, but then the name should be next to 'To' and not on 'From'.
Lastly, the netizen gathered numerous reports claiming they have seen Seventeen treasuring fan letters with great love. Some of the many reports said, "I've seen them using the stickers I have put inside the letter I gave them. They always read the letters. I don't understand the problem here TT," "I am a staff who has worked with Seventeen when they debuted. The boys even kept the post-it note that the producer gave them. They would never throw away fan letters," "I am a reporter, and I once saw them envying the one member who received most letters," and more.
What are your thoughts on the situation?
