A news station is heavily under fire for pursuing ill-mannered reporting regarding JYJ Yoochun's ongoing sexual assault case.

Back on June 23, 'K-STAR News' uploaded a Youtube clip of a station reporter at the airport, to catch JYJ member Junsu's return from overseas promotions. In the clip, the reporter follows Junsu and asks, "Park Yoochun is currently surrounded in controversy, do you have anything to say in his place?"

Junsu remained silent, being escorted by his bodyguards toward the exit, but the reported continued with more questions, such as "There are many fans who are worried or disappointed, do you not have anything to say to your fans?" or "You must be worried since he's a member of your group, what are your thoughts right now?".

Netizens online have been showering 'K-STAR News' with contempt after seeing the contents of the clip, claiming that the news station and reporter crossed the line with ill-mannered reporting methods simply because Junsu is in the same group as Yoochun. Comments included, "Why are you asking Junsu about Yoochun's case?", "That's rude", "Why are you doing this after going all the way to the airport seriously TT It makes me sad", and more. 

See the clip for yourself above.

DEAR GOD, Why is there so much negativity & hate in people's mind & heart?? What goes around, comes around. The negativity/hate you sent out into this universe will engulf your life. You have to pay for your negativity. The moment you send hate, you are bringing your soul energy level down down down. Next time if something bad happens to you, just remember it's because of your negativity. It's good to follow news but DON'T INDULGE in gossip, slander, judging & hate. If you support him, comment "I support him". If you don't support him, comment "I wish the truth will surface soon". Don't prolong the discussion unnecessarily and waste yours & others time. Life is simple, don't complicate it unnecessarily. Live & let live, don't rub your opinions on others & don't think you're right either. I suggest you all start reading philosophy & expand your mind towards love & positivity rather than wasting your time in dissing people/celebrities.

I would have asked... Did you know what kind of person was Yoochun? (in the case he's guilty)

blackrose2016 Friday, July 1, 2016

When you look at his face he looks unhealthy and fragile He will speak when he is ready

Can't she see that Junsu is sad enough about his friend, He must be hurt they gone trough alot, I don't believe this scandal I just hope that Yoochun will be prooven innocent cause he's such a nice man

Zikashika lover_x Saturday, July 2, 2016

OMG! you know him personally? is this real? if you know him and know that he is nice man, its mean you know the truth. am i right?

lover_x Zikashika Saturday, July 2, 2016

Stop your sarcasm, I trust him and I believe tjat he won't do such a thing...Ppl are just accusing each other, like they did to Yonghwa and he was innocent --' plus if you don't like my comment why bothering urself replying it ?

daFoolio Friday, July 1, 2016

she asked like 2 questions.... its hardly badgering~~~

Still bad reporting ethics. And if it's about something THAT serious and she's hounding him when he's JUST got back from promotions of his own and not in an official press conference type setting, yeah, it's bad. Even if it WAS a press conference, it should be /about/ the situation, not something like "press conference for the new musical that's coming up 'oh hey, what do you think about yoochun and his controversy, scandalous, amirite or amirite, *wink wink nudge nudge*" Poor reporting is poor reporting. That's not really any better than the paps that swear and behave in an ill-bred manner in order to capture an unflattering image of the celebrity they're stalking.

The entertainment reporters/press has been NOTHING but inflammatory and sensationalist since this story emerged. They've reduced this unfortunate situation to a witch hunt, with this young man's whole life and career in the balance and they don't care. What if this all turns out to be an extortion plot and nothing more?? Then it's going to be heaps of shame on the entire Korean press and the online haters who have stirred this hornet's nest non-stop.

OK AKP moderators, what the fuck do I have to do to get rid of ? Do I have to post how much money you can make on Google? Do I have to threaten to hunt this motherfucker down and shoot them? Is there someone there I have to fuck? That is an impostor account. It is not me. Get rid of it. I do a MUCH better job of making an ass of myself than this poser wannabe amateur could ever hope to.

BigBlueagain Friday, July 1, 2016

I've just been informed that the fake has been dealt with . Thank you mods :)

That was really wrong to ask at time like this, if Junsu wants to speak out, he will do it on his own.

mademoiselleiya Friday, July 1, 2016

Wow this made me remember Pinocchio. That reporter must have watched it.

LordLiar18 Friday, July 1, 2016

Junsu has nothing to do with this but as a member of the same group since so much time, i would not be surprised if reporters ask him those questions as the scandal got so big. It's okay, they just asked what's his opinion on the matter, no as if he frequently visit those places... He doesn't have to answer the question and it's his choice and right to remain silent! Some reporters do this for a living so it's their job to ask those questions even if the other person doesn't like them, as long as they don't cross the line or make up groundless news.
