Sajaegi issue is rising again, this time, with singer Shaun.
Recently, Shaun's song "Way Back Home", originally released in June 2018, started climbing up on music charts. For the second week of July, "Way Back Home" managed to suddenly jump up a total of 131 spots and land in the top 10 - overcoming hits such as "Forever Young" by Black Pink.
"Way Back Home" is also being advertised on Facebook music pages, similar to Nilo.
Seeing the social media marketing and sudden increase in ranking, netizens are accusing Shaun of sajaegi and calling him the '2nd Nilo'.
Comments stated, "He's a robber stealing other artists' spots on charts", "He's #1 on Genie. Nonsense", "Nobody even knows his song..", "Who is he?", "Cheater", "This is ridiculous."
Shaun's agency, Happy Robot Records, has not released any official statement regarding the issue yet.
