Fans of NCT's Jaehyun attack Singaporean newspaper for 'damaging his reputation'


Fans of NCT's Jaehyun attacked Singaporean newspaper The Straits Times for allegedly damaging his reputation.

The Straits Times published an article on Jaehyun's recent apology for going out to a club in Itaewon during the coronavirus pandemic, and his fans have took to social media to accuse the newspaper of damaging the idol star's reputation. On May 18, the newspaper released an article with the headline, "NCT vocalist Jaehyun posts apology letter after flouting social distancing rules."

Fans were also upset by the below image of Jaehyun published in the article as they alleged it portrayed him in a negative light. The NCT member's fans even investigated the author behind the article, who turned out to be a 19-year-old intern.  

What are your thoughts on the issue?

Is this the only article on the incident they wrote? Cause if so that's really random since it's not even the major part of the story. Using that photo is really shitty though. He's a professional singer. He has photos to accompany press. You don't have to pick an out of context behind the scenes photo from his Instagram. Given the stigma against tattoos in some places in Asia... they knew the optics of picking that photo.
