During the December 26 broadcast of 'Heard It Through the Grapevine', Yoochun's sexual assault controversy became a topic of discussion. Regarding the issue, Kim Ji Min revealed, "I was really shocked because I know Yoochun. We were actually kind of close."
She continued, "The Yoochun I know felt like a non-celebrity when I first met him. Unlike an idol star, he was easy to approach. He was simple, carefree, and easygoing. Rumors about him were also good. He's very mannerly to elders. So I was really really shocked about the sexual assault incident and even wondered if this is the Yoochun I knew."
In the summer of 2016, Yoochun was accused of sexually assaulting 5 women.
