denied accusations that Jeong Joong Ji
Yesterday, the 'Produce 101' trainee had accused his former label of creating the story about his sexual harassment for more exposure. He had deleted the post, but WAYZ Company said, "Jeong Joong Ji, who was a trainee at our label, had been in controversy while he was on 'Produce 101' because of a post by a woman who claimed to have received an apology from Jeong Joong Ji after being sexually harassed by him in the past. The label tried to meet the woman who claimed to be the victim to try to objectively find out what had happened. Through Jeong Joong Ji's own intentions, we mediated so they would be able to work out their problems. She accepted his sincere apology and deleted the problematic post."

They said, "Because of that controversy as well as others, we amicably canceled our contract with Jeong Joong Ji with agreement from both sides back in early May. Even though that was the case, Jeong Joong Ji wrote something completely false on his SNS, and greatly damaged our label's character. We will be taking strict action on spreading false information and defamation of character. We apologize to everyone who had been worried by this situation."
