More controversy surrounding Kim Yong Guk surfaces, including derogatory comments about JBJ promotions

Kim Yong Guk (Longguo)
Fans of JBJ and Kim Yong Guk have expressed shock after seeing the posts from Kim Yong Guk's personal Instagram account.

Along with the ongoing controversy of his cat Lucy and the dating scandal involving Sonamoo's Nahyun, Kim Yong Guk's private Instagram has caused a great stir due to its problematic nature. The private account had been hacked and its contents were disclosed, to which Kim Yong Guk admitted as his in his hand-written apology letter.

The issues that fans have pointed out were Kim Yong Guk's 'behind-the-scenes' posts and actions via the private account: overtly expressing his dislike towards the extension of JBJ's promotions, posting private Kakao messages sent from fans about gifts that he would want, showing 'annoyance' at the amount of albums he needed to sign for fans, posting pictures of his ex-girlfriend, and more.

Regarding JBJ activities, Kim Yong Guk had posted a script from JBJ's reality show that showed the members talking about wanting a 'Season 2' for their fans. Underneath, Kim Yong Guk wrote, "??????????????????????According to whose wishes???????" (which idiomatically translates into "Who said I was okay with it?").




On fans' gifts, he had captured a Kakao message from a fan listing all the expensive gifts that they were preparing for him, with a caption that showed his desire for particular items: "VR!!!!!!!!!Litter robot!!!!!!!!!HahaHaahahahahahahaHAahahahahaaahahahaha". 



Meanwhile, with the albums that he had to sign for his fans, he posted a photo from the signing scene and wrote: "A huge disappointment/disillusionment" (an idiomatic word that is currently trending in Korea that expresses 'annoyance', 'shock at reality', or 'betrayal'.)




Furthermore, apart from the rumors with Sonamoo's Nahyun, Kim Yong Guk had posted photos of his then-girlfriend (presumably a non-celebrity) during his days of JBJ promotions.







In addition, certain netizens have reported findings of Kim Yong Guk's trash that included letters and inexpensive gifts from fans thrown away, and other past Instagram photos have revealed that he had spent time at an adult clubbing scene (popular as a spot putting on sexist contests and sexually offensive acts) as a minor. 








Upon seeing the posts, some netizens reacted with the following comments: "He has reached the maximum level of 'problematic'", "You know, he wore a couple bracelet shared with his ex-girlfriend on public broadcast, even on the days he probably did date Nahyun)", "I am the one who has seen the true disillusionment", "I can't believe he had the audacity to share those kind of posts about JBJ when the fans were petitioning to extend their contract with all the members included." "Can't trust anyone these days", "I can't believe he kept just the expensive ones and threw away all the rest of the fan gifts???"

What are your thoughts on this controversy?

Lol, as if most people don't bitch about their jobs on social media. Almost every person I talk to regularly is whining daily about hating their coworkers, hating work conditions, hating the customers they deal with - usually with good reason. I don't necessarily believe it's always appropriate or helpful, but it's how people choose to blow off steam. If he's a bad person for doing it, then most of the people you know who are nice to your face are bad people.


And I mean really. These people are stalking his cats, breaking into his private social media accounts, going through his trash, getting mad because he interacts with women, getting mad because he isn't, like, buying a warehouse to store all the useless shit they're giving him... and then they think he is the problem for treating them contemptuously?

FINALLY! Someone with insight and some common sense! The only things I think warrant some backlash was him (maybe) cheating on his ex and asking a fan to buy some pretty expensive gifts. And the latter can be discussed; the fan was the one who wanted to gift him, and the fans are never obligated to buy them the things they ask for anyways.

The problem here is that these people are also invading his privacy just to prove he's problematic. Is he not entitled to privacy. I get some of the stuff is a bit problematic but people wouldn't have known any of this if those crazies hadn't have invaded his privacy. Something needs to be done about these people.

Oh really you guys are shocked?

What did you thought Idols would do with tons of Fangifts ? Keeping it in their Dorms until there isn't even a place to stand ?

And guess what, yes signing tons of albums ain't a fun thing to do at all, it's such a monotonous activity that get's you bored easily. And excuse me, as an Idol you have all right to complain about your schedule's and fans if things get to much. Especially with fans who are very very annoying and like to start drama out of nowhere because they think they are entitled to. Idols are still HUMANS for Chris Sake !!! They have feelings, they get happy ,feel annoyed, angry, disapointed etc just like everyone else and therefore are also entitled to complain about the negative aspect of being an Idol. They already try their best to control themself infront of the camera, but sometimes you need to let your frustration out. Can't they even be themself in private ?

And for those who will say "But he choosed to be an Idol, he should have know it" ,please don't tell me you never complained about your job or college etc. eventhough you choosed it yourself when things weren't for your liking .

Also does he have a right to go out and drink whenever he wants. Just because some of you ain't got hobbies ,doesn't Idols can't have fun too.

The only thing i see as problematic is the fact that he was naive enough to think that as a person of public interest , nobody would ever try to hack his account or leak private conversations, just because the Account was private. He had all rights to complain and feel annoyed, but he shouldn't have talked about such private issues on social media where a fan could see it.

Also do i find it quite disturbing that fans were grabbing his trash to find some private info's. Like seriously, some have no respect for Idols privacy and you guys are shocked he sometimes speak bad about them.

To take you back to reality , almost every Idol will think that way from time to time.

So, how do they want to make money? Not only can they stand like statues and hope that the money falls on them, the fanatics pay for that autographs, if they do not want to do any of that, then they would not have become idol

That's like saying ''Why work as a teacher if you dislike rude students? You know they exist''. Everyone hates certain parts of their jobs, even if it is their dream job. They do it because (like you said) that is how they make money, that does not mean they LIKE those parts of it. I doubt anyone becomes an idol because they want to spend hours signing albums, and shake hands with 100+ people back to back. Lol how naive are you??

OMG you lack some braincells.
They cheerfully do it - like those department store clerks cheerfully wait on the most obnoxious people. HOWEVER, in private they have the right to bitch all they want, honey. This poor guy obviously has somebody out for blood gunning for him - his damn PRIVATE account got hacked and made public! That's invasion of privacy and illegal far as I know! Good LORD don't tell me you don't complain about your job - if you've ever had one of course....

One thing leads to another, another, another, another and it wont stop till either that person abandons their career, knets get their way by demand or petition, or unfortunately hate to say it but suicide from all the thrashing they get from the public, and the media, cause the media is as much as fault as the public. Also how do they know thats his trash did they go through it and why would he take pics of it, i think thats just an anti who did that himself or his jealous ex.

I just recently got into Jbj and wow im kind of hurt. I always praised jbj and all the members saying they were all sweet and kind but it's embarrassing to say the truth now after all i said. Honestly y'all are saying this isn't a big deal but like it kind of is and some stuff like privacy obviously it's not bad to want it but he posted personal messages. The stuff about him complaing and wanting privacy isn't really a big deal but everythinh else is mentioned is.

As a fan of JBJ I'm disappointed, but Yongguk is the member I cared about the least so whatever if he goes to jail or not, I never stanned JBJ because of him and after JBJ disbanded I only care about Donghan, Sanggyun, Kenta and Taehyun so meh I don't care about the shit he does anymore
