Five months ago, back in October 2018, an anonymous poster left a shocking post on an online community. According to the poster, Jonghyun has been investigated by the police multiple times. He and Jung Joon Young also allegedly drugged underaged fans and sexually harassed them.
The full post reads, "I have something to tell CNBLUE fans. Don't be so into Lee Jonghyun. Rumors have widely spread about him having sex with a popular girl group... He's also famous for having sex with his fans. Please listen to me. Don't regret it later. It'll be in the news sometime. It hasn't made headlines but Lee Jonghyun has been to the police many times."
And an additional comment stated, "Another spoiler here. '1 Night 2 Days' Jung Joon Young and Lee Jonghyun gave sleeping pills to underaged fans and sexually harassed them."
At the time, netizens simply believed it was a fake post with malicious intent. However, many are now coming to think the writer was not lying after all.
Netizens who've just recently reread the comments stated, "Hul... How did that person know?" "Wasn't this all in the news?? How did that person know?" "I'm getting goosebumps. Maybe their dirty acts were already well known in the industry," "Wow.. this is scary."
Meanwhile, Jung Joon Young has admitted to filming women without consent and sharing the videos in chatrooms. Jonghyun is rumored to be a member of Jung Joon Young's controversial chatroom, however, FNC Entertainment denied all accusations.
