Girl group member 'J' has been revealed to be the victim of a fraud case.


According to The Fact, 'J', a main singer in a currently popular girl group, invested 200 million KRW (approximately 175,000 USD) in a concert investment company by someone named 'Kim'. However, 'Kim' disappeared without a trace on April 6, leaving 8 victims with a total loss of 1.7 billion KRW (approximately 1.5 million USD). The police estimate a total loss of 12 billion KRW (10.5 million USD) when accounting for cases that have not been reported yet.

'J's label said, "She hasn't reported her case, and we don't even know if something like that happened."


Cases are still being reported for the incident, so the police stated that they could not reveal much detail. Hopefully, the con artist gets caught.

    I remember a bit ago that an entertainment had booked an idol group for a concert but come to find out that company screwed it up really bad. It may be the same people. I wish I could remember the name of that company.

    scammers are lazy people who are parasites that suck on people's hard work money. Infact we have a resident sammer in allkpop who tell people to go to a malware website and promises to let you earn money if you do

    usually allkpop spells initials on their last names. but i dont think its Krystal since its quite hard for an SM artist to make their own investment (like how jessica got kicked out from making her own business). the one that came to my mind first is song jieun, but her last name is S so akk that's left is Jung Eunji...

    Nope. Businesses like two some coffee, Grill5 Taco, Mouse Rabbit, etc. They are owned by different member of Super Junior and are not related to Sm at all🤗

    I doubt it's anyone from Twice or Blackpink. They may be massively popular atm but I doubt the members are making any income yet as individuals. This J person could be Jung Eunji or Krystal Jung, at least those are my guesses.

    it think this member is not from the big 3 ent. rules are quite strict there for individual activities, i felt its like in the smaller form of ent agency. so yeah, eunji is my final guess (i hope she's not T_T)

    Not a lead singer, and not too many people would call them popular post 2012.
