Son Tae Young's agency apologizes after her son is caught sitting in reserved artists' section during '2018 Melon Music Awards'

Son Tae Young
Actress Son Tae Young's agency has opened up about a misunderstanding involving her young son that occurred during the '2018 Melon Music Awards.'


The actress attended the event, which was held on December 1, to present the award for 'Best Song of the Year,' and brought her son as her guest. However, during a portion of the event, he was caught sitting in the special seating area reserved for attending artists, leading to talk over whether or not he had received special treatment from staff.

According to her agency H8, the actress had been sitting quietly with her son in a waiting room to not bother event attendees. However, when it was time for her to present the award, her son had expressed wanting to see her on stage, so he was taken to that seating by staff.

"He did not know that the chair he received information about was reserved for artists," the agency continued. "He left as soon as the award was given out. We apologize for the unintentional trouble caused. If there is anyone that was hurt by this matter for any reason, we would like to express our apology to them."

lmao who cares. glad the child got nice seats to watch his mother present the award. if they were reserved seats but remained unoccupied, what does it matter if a kid sat in one for 5 minutes?

Agree. But to explain further is that Koreans are super sensitive about people receiving special privileges as you may be aware like the alleged GD receiving special privileges in the army etc etc. Why you may ask? Because the Koreans know there are many people who are secretly receiving special privileges because of their status and connection and so if they see anything remotely that in the open, they are up in arms, becasue they can do nothing about those done secretly.

There are people everywhere around the world that get special privileges. This boy was simply watching his mum up on stage which must have been an exciting thing for him. Don't defend idiocy please.

it was intended to be a "Actress abused her priviledges and letting her son take the reserved seat" but in fact, her son just wanted to see mummy on the stage giving out a prize and sit down there to look at his mummy. and got hate online.

I think her son merely wanted to see his mum on the stage giving out the award and its not like he went there to talk to his bias idols, so i think it was bad to critcise him. and according to her, he left shortly after so its not like he was sitting there the entire award ceremony in a section for reserved artistes.

Include akp among the stupid people using the word CAUGHT! As if the kid committed a terrible offense. I think that kid is barely 10 yrs old. He didn't know the technicalities of seating arrangement.

WOW KOREAN CHILL!! The kid was only there to watch his mother when she was on the stage for a few minutes.

There was a free seat so come on. She's contributed enough for the industry they can spare her son 5min of a good seat.

So it seems like new information has come out. It wasn't just her son (it was also her niece), it wasn't just any sitting area (it was specially reserved for veteran artists and newer/rookie artists were not allowed to sit there), it wasn't just 5 minutes (the videos show them clearly sitting through performances including BTS). So yeah, maybe, it was a "bit" of abuse of her celebrity status.
