MAMAMOO fans are riled up and angry, claiming that yet another member has been the victim of "sexual harassment." Previously, Whee In was deemed to have been the victim of an inappropriate remark by 10cm's Kwon Jung Yeol. Now, fans are claiming Solar is the next victim, deploring the inappropriate remark Han Dong Geun supposedly directed at her during a break on the set of 'Duet Song Festival.'

Allegedly, this conversation was recorded while the singers were on break during the recording:
Yoo Se Yoon: The way she smiles is similar to a foreign actress.
Sung Si Kyung: Who?
Yoo Se Yoon: I don't know her name.
Han Dong Geun: Megan Fox?
Sung Si Kyung: Why do you always only like the racy women?
Han Dong Geun: (looking at Solar according to witness accounts) She doesn't... not have... a racy vibe?
Fans have taken offense at the last comment by Han Dong Geun, claiming that he was "sexually harassing" Solar with it. Many have taken to Twitter to express their anger for the remark, creating a big deal about the brief exchange. (Note: He does not say "sexy" but something along the lines of "racy or sexual." Saying someone is "sexy" in Korean does not automatically mean "horny/sexual/revealing." The word he used could suggest something of that nature, but "horny" is a bit of a stretch.)
Check out the tweets below. Do you consider this sexual harassment, simply inappropriate, or a harmless passing remark?
