Now that the Sechskies special on 'Infinity Challenge' is done, all the members are coming to spotlight - even the one that doesn't want to be.


Member Ko Ji Yong had stepped away from the entertainment industry as soon as Sechskies disbanded, and has been working as a regular company employee. In fact, Yoo Jae Suk had to specially ask him to appear on broadcast, and he had considered it for a while before accepting.

However, now that he did come on the show, he's gaining the attention he didn't want. MBC's 'Section TV' reported on the former star, stating, "He comes often to Gwanghwamoon. His company is there. He comes to restaurants to eat. He's like a well-dressed employee.


When the broadcast aired, many found it distasteful and rude as Ko Ji Yong had left the industry because he didn't want the attention. Viewers commented, "Are you in your right mind? You're being disruptive and stalking a person who doesn't want to be a celebrity," "He must be uncomfortable... this is why he didn't want to come out on broadcast... I hope no one goes to seek him out," and "Don't go looking for him and making his private life into news. He's just a plain company employee now."


What do you think about the situation?

    I think netizens should follow their advice and leave ALL artists, former, current or upcoming, ALONE.Having said that, is there a serious lack of celebrity news these days?  Or has this site just become lazy as hell and latched on to a *successful* formula of "what netizens say."

    He looked so shy on the show. I felt bad for him, being thrust into the spotlight like that.

    lets not forget....i don't think he was forced to appear on tv with yoo jae suk.. the man is a big boy and he decided for himself that he would make an appearance... so why jump on yjs??

    He has made a hard decision to appear on MUDO~ Section TV knows that and they ignored the fact he didn't want his company to be in news gosh

    people need to back off. The more they push into his life the more he is going to withdraw from their life. If they would like to see more of him they would have to honor his privacy. I hope he does not find this an absolute nightmare and regret appearing at lal.

    I knew something like this would happen, and I had a feeling he knew it too. And despite all that, he still came to support his members and fans. Now that Totoga is over, we should all respect his decision to stay out of the media. Anyone who seeks him out is a douche, leave him be!

    He is not a public figure, you don't have the right to show anything about him without his concent... He just wanted to make Sechskies and his fans happy... Why would you do this to him...

    Netizens are right, however, it's just a storm and it will pass by in no time, a matter of month or 2 and his life will be calm again, I hope people around him be patient and wait till the buzz is over.
