Under 'hobbies', Sungwoon mentioned his close friendship with the members of EXO and BTS, writing, "Play pool and games (with Taemin, Kai, and Jimin)." The phrase in blue print above his name also reads, "I'm going to bling bling like my friends."




Several netizens started to criticize Sungwoon for using his popular idol friends to gain attention and popularity. 


Currently, the part about Taemin, Kai, and Jimin is no longer found on Sungwoon's profile. It's assumed that he deleted their names as controversy started to arise.

What's the point of this article? Running out of controversies and just posted whatever they could find?

No need to get mad over this issue. I mean, what he did is not even illegal T_T

First of all. SHINEE EXO & BTS. Ahem SHINEE. And, this isn't a huge issue for me. But if you're thinking about this on a professional side. Mentioning their names like that is kind of unnecessary. It sounds like he's using their names to get famous. Just my 2 cents

As an ARMY I really don't care. He can write whatever he wants, it's not like it's actually Jimin who's competing. People need to learn to chill.

tbh, as a part of HOTSHOT he was already known & already has a fanbase (same w nu'est and others) so idk why this is even a thing???? if ppl are gonna be pissed that these already debuted members have ties to the kpop community already and may use it to their advantage (intentionally or not) then why even allow them to participate? i just don't get it. people should expect that they will already be more known, have kpop idol friends and etc. they already debuted for f'cks sakes, DUH they will have connections. FIND SOMETHING MORE PRODUCTIVE TO DO W YA'LL TIME PLS. if you really mad then go complain to the producers for allowing already debuted members to participate. so dumb, seriously.

Can't help but wonder why the article only mentions EXO and BTS when Taemin was also listed... -___-
