Comedian Kim Ji Min talked about Yoochun, whom she claimed to be close to, on the December 26 airing of Channel A's 'Heard It Through the Grapevine,' but since then, seems to be getting hate from netizens.
She had said that she was a bit close to the star so had been surprised to hear about his sexual assault controversy. After viewing that, some netizens went to her recent SNS post to leave comments.
One netizen wrote, "I wonder if you said you were close but all you knew about the situation was the stuff they talked about on TV. If she were really close, she would never have mentioned him in that way. Not taking advantage of somebody you say you're close to in order to make money is human nature."
Other netizens wrote, "If you're human, you shouldn't say stuff like that," "It must be nice because now you've become a Hallyu comedian [after talking about him like that]," "Your imprudent words have harmed Yoochun," and more.
