Fans call out male backup dancer for 'inappropriately touching' Cosmic Girls' Luda on stage


Cosmic Girls fans took to Twitter to 'call out' a male backup dancer on Luda's stage.

On March 7, the Twitter fanbase boiled over as fans shared various GIFs, videos, and screenshots of Luda on stage, during which she was allegedly touched inappropriately by one of her backup dancers. The male dancer, searched by fans to be Ko Kyung Jun, had apparently gone overboard in touching Luda's lower chest and other body areas, as judged by fans below.

The male dancer, in response to such accusations, wrote on his Instagram:

Full translation:

"I am sorry if you all were hurt by the incident. First of all, as our staff discussed during our company dinner, I didn't do it on purpose, but it was possible for the fans to have been upset, so I said, 'yes, my hand was the culprit! ^^' Then we laughed it off, among all the dancers, and had uploaded the photo of Lee Byung Hun! ^^ I had no intention of hurting anyone, but I had also done it thinking that I didn't want to hurt the artist, making me be extra careful when putting her down. For that reason, I had memorized and practiced the choreography for days on end without sleep, but it feels very unfortunate for me to be accused as if I had somehow sexually harassed her, as judged by the fans who only view it under a negative light. But I will try my best to be more careful from now on."

However, as the accusations continued, the dancer changed his Instagram account to private. 

Currently, fans have shared their plans to take the matter directly to Starship Entertainment via e-mail, official Instagram DM, and more.

What do you think of this incident?

This is ridiculous. I understand it wasn’t a nice position for his hand to go to ... BUT how do we know he meant it? They are dancing, sometimes during dance hands don’t always go the placement they’re intended due to many factors of a performance
