Kim Yong Guk cancels golden ticket event, infuriating fans who spent lots of money

Kim Yong Guk (Longguo)
Kim Yong Guk has canceled his Golden Ticket event.

Golden Tickets are exclusive ticket included in a few albums. Any fan who buys albums has a chance of receiving one, which leads to an exclusive with their idol. Because the tickets and event are so exclusive, many fans end up spending a lot of money so they can get their hands on a Golden Ticket.


However, it's now been announced that Kim Yong Guk's Golden Ticket event has been canceled. The announcement read simply, "Kim Yong Guk's 1st Mini Album [Friday n Night] Golden Ticket event has been canceled due to situations with the planning company. We apologize sincerely to the fans. Thank you." While not explicitly stated, many are guessing it has something to do with his current controversy.

The announcement has infuriated many fans who had spent a lot of money to get their hands on golden tickets. Choon Entertainment has currently made no announcement about how the fans with the tickets will be compensated, if at all.

i dont know if its true or not but someone on twitter has translated all the news about him since friday and why SK fans are mad and it isn't just about his supposed rumor dating but alot more. its stemming from his treatment to his pets, his rude actions towards former jbj members, his misogyny towards women, and the way he was treating fans and their letters and gifts. like i said i dont know if its true or not since i dont read korean but if it is true allkpop and other sites should really look into it so us international fans would understand more. this would be better news than half the crap allkpop has been posting. this might also be a reason why his schedules are being cancled

just going to say i don't think anyone said/claimed he was rude towards JBJ... he just didn't seem interested in JBJ and potentially JBJ fans. also he was misogynistic too? when? (not being sarcastic; i really didn't know... what did he do?)

it was when he was gaming. there are screen shots but it was in korean and the translator said she would not translate it because she was disgusted but if you want to read it she has the screen shots but it'll be in korean. in that thread too it describe how HyunBin had a life-size cut out and Kim Yong Guk would use that cutout's face as target practice. it also said that he brought his cats into JBJ's dorm when he knew some members were allergic to cats but he still did it and they had to wear a face mask to sleep. again this is all i read from twitter from the person who was translating the k-news. i'm not trying to start rumours or anything. so correct me if i am wrong. this is just what i read

i think the cat one was something that was kind of discussed with members (and dictated how they shared rooms; so he would room with someone who wasn't allergic and keep the cats there generally.


but yeah.... the rest.... honestly he seems like someone with little regard for other people. i still don't know about the cat because the first bit of the story could be true (he took it to the shelter and it was adopted out and then abandoned) but... still posting pictures of the cat as if you still own it... things like that...


this is just a mess and it's amazing how different someone can be from how they seem... on produce 101 he was so shy but now he just seems like a complete arsehole

Lol, what did they expect with all the bad things his 'fans' are claiming he did. He's obviously going to get his activities canceled, either till this dies down or forever, cos sponsors are scared now

Gosh, maybe so-called fans shouldn't have ruined his image by going through his trash and breaking into his private social media accounts and making a big song and dance over him not wanting to continue owning one of his cats or keep all their love letters forever...


The level of hysteria over this guy is absurd. He is probably a bit of an ass but he's young and some guys are asses until the real world smacks them around a bit. As far as his contempt for his fans goes, they honestly seem to deserve nothing better than contempt. Saying naughty words while gaming: who cares? The cat situation is just dumb: if you take the average of truth from all the stuff flying around the guy probably wants to get rid of the cat and his company keeps interfering. It's bad form if he ever actually abandoned it but why is it the fans' business if the cat winds up in a shelter?


Some of these kids need to realise in the real world we don't carry on like wronged girlfriends every time someone turns out to be not who we think they are. Just stop buying his music and move on to a heartthrob who is better at hiding how pathetic he thinks his overly-invested fans are...

Lmao this is funny because the fans are blaming him instead of the PLANNING COMPANY. Also tbh they went put of THEIR way to buy the golden ticket so.... in a way it is partially their fault also.

They are blaming him because no promoter will want to touch someone radioactive who can damage their own image by association. It is implicit that he is the cause - the termination of the agreement would have caused the promoter huge problems if they didn't have this reason for it.

This 22 year old man cannot get a break? His company canceled the Golden ticket fan meeting, most likely because of the "fans" being so terribly disappointed in anything and everything he does. Since he has been found guilty of being misogynistic, according to someone who saw what was on his computer screen while he was gaming, why would any female want to see him? He brought cats into his dorm room. Members were allergic to cats. He gets rid of cat. His company alleged they still had the cat when it wasn't with them... and this is his fault and not the fault of the company? It appears as if plenty want him to go away. Then why not say that instead of attacking everything he does. The expectations of idols are too high, lower them so that you will understand they are just ordinary people trying to live extraordinary lives.

This guy a few weeks ago was loved for having the best fan meeting NOW he is bad to his fans?! NOW he is a bad guy because of a cat? And that cat is confirmed to already have a home and healthy? NOW that guy doesn’t like JBJ members because they found something in the trash next to their droms that doesn’t have a proof it was yongguk’s doing or anyone?! Do you know anyone can through anything in trashes near others houses? Do you know you can take pictures and claim you found it when it is their doing? There is no extreme proof! it is all claims and photos that proof nothing.

You are all just like “people are hating on this guy today, let’s hate on him too”

"hard to understand" and "REFUSE TO UNDERSTAND" are different from each other. In your case, you are just being STUPID that "YOU REFUSE TO UNDERSTAND".
