On March 17, Maroo Entertainment shared an official statement regarding the controversy. It stated,


"After reading the post, we, Maroo Entertainment, personally met with the poster and apologized, and Han Jong Yeon expressed desires to take time of reflection. We sincerely apologize to the friend who was hurt, the producers who're working hard for 'Produce 101', CJ E&M associates, the fellow trainees who are working their best for their dreams, and all the supportive fans. We send a sincere apology to the friend who was hurt by Han Jong Yeon and announce that he decided to leave the show."


However, the label emphasized that Han Jong Yeon is not the one who forced the shocking actions. Maroo Entertainment stated, "It's confirmed with the poster that the classmate involved with provocative acts such as forced masturbation is, in fact, not Han Jong Yeon. We plan to take strict legal action against malicious rumors."

    This is such a mess and it seems like the show does not have a publicity team that briefed the contestants on how to clean their closets before being on TV.

    If such drama is already happening before the broadcast even aired Lord knows what'll happen during the actual show

    Based on the statement I think they meant that he really was involved in bullying the classmate but was not the one to initiate the forced masturbation. It means there was probably a group of bullies and he was just a part of it~ it's sad that the victim had to go through that, I hope matters were resolved well with both of them ^^

    So he did it, then he didn't do it? Yet he was booted of the show just that the production could save 'face'!!  Nice going here industry - save your own asses and throw the poor kid under the bus over someone's comment without any evidence.... Nice one!!

    Feel sorry for him? If it's true, he forced someone to masturbate in front of others! Do you get it? How would you feel if one of your classmates forced you to do this and then you should stay in the class until graduation? Just asking. You should feel sorry for the victim!

    if...!it hasn't been proven yet, so don't label him as someone like that when it hasn't been proven - that's the only reason i feel sorry for him, so don't get me wrong. If it turns out to be true don't worry i won't be feeling sorry for him.
