A report had come out, bringing to attention that Alex, the youngest of 'Boys 24,' was in a place serving alcohol despite being a minor after a picture was posted on another member's SNS.
Regarding this, 'Boys 24' said on August 15, "The restaurant Alex entered was not a pub; it was registered as a Korean restaurant. He entered with the consent of his parents and did not drink, so there's no legal issue. In light of Alex's underage status, we had made a reservation at a restaurant that he could enter. He drank a [non-alcoholic] beverage instead of alcohol, and we made him go home early. We apologize for going somewhere that could cause misunderstandings. We will be more careful from now on."
