MAMAMOO's Whee In is under fire for a recent post on the group's official fan cafe.
Back on July 1, MAMAMOO released a surprise pre-release single "Rainy Season" ahead of their summer comeback. Just after the single release, the song emerged in the top 10 on various music charts, and to thank fans, Whee In took to MAMAMOO's official fan cafe with a post. She wrote, "Listening to 'Rainy Season' paired with Prapiroon. Thank you MooMoos for #5." She also shared a bare-faced, thumbs-up selca along with her message.
However, some fans who saw the post found the reference to Typhoon Prapiroon inappropriate. The typhoon is currently rampaging across the northwest Pacific, forecasted to produce damages in southern Japan and Korea.
Once the issue became a controversy, Whee In deleted her post. This isn't the first time Whee In has received criticism for her "inappropriate" posts. Previously, the idol became wrapped up in controversy for "looking down on non-celebrities".
