UP10TION's Wooshin accused of sexually harassing IOI's Jeon So Mi?

UP10TION, Wooshin, IOI, Jeon So Mi
UP10TION's Wooshin is going under fire for allegedly sexually harassing IOI's Jeon So Mi.

The pair are MCs for 'The Show'. The pair filmed a Christmas video for 'The Show', and during the video, Wooshin moves his hand toward Somi three times. The second time, her hands are in the way, but the first and third times, the back of Wooshin's hand presses against Somi's chest. The first time, she seems to back away in surprise, though that is up to interpretation.

While fans are pointing out that it looks like it's an accident, others aren't so sure. Some are certain if it was an accident, he would have pulled back right away instead of lingering his hand, and that he would have definitely been more careful the next two times.

However, staff of 'The Show' stepped forward themselves to clear the air and say, "We are writing about the 'The Show' MCs' Christmas greeting video. During the recording, staff from both MCs' sides were present and monitoring the recording, and two of them stayed at a distance while filming. During the filming, there were no uncomfortable feeling from either party. The current controversy is a mistake from the angle of the video, so we ask fans to no longer misunderstand, make guesses, and criticize. We have deleted the video to prevent further guesses and misunderstandings, so we ask fans of MCs Wooshin and Somi to understand."
