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."

OKAY THE FACT THAT THE COMPANY APOLOGISED PROVES HE DIDN'T DO IT OR ELSE WHY WOULD THEY APOLOGISE FROM SOMETHING HE DIDN'T DO, WHY ARE FANGIRLS STILL SAYING "I hope his career isn't ruined" or "It's just rumours" BECAUSE HE DESERVES TO BE IN PRISON FOR FUCKS SAKE

Confirmed he bullied that kid but the force to masturbate part was made up. I felt so sorry for the victim at first but now I don't. Since he's making false accusation

Hopefully his whole career isn't ruined, I really liked him, and then there is the fact he didn't even do it. 😓 orzWhy

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

Did He do it because the last statement was something different

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 ^^

good for him......hope he never makes it back into the korean entertainment industry../!!!!

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!!
