On August 18, Luda turned on a live broadcast through V Live, and had a nice conversation with her fans as she enjoyed a meal. When a fan asked Luda if she could show them how to use chopsticks, Luda replied, "I'm now in my 6th year, so I feel like I should say what I have to say." Luda was referring to an incident five years ago, where she had replied, "Left-handed, chopsticks user" to a question asking about her ideal type. When netizens heard her reply, they began spreading dating rumors of Luda, claiming that she had been referring to a specific left-handed person who is good at using chopsticks.
After staying silent for many years, Luda finally gave a clear explanation. She stated, "I used to be bad at using chopsticks, but I improved after putting in effort. After saying my ideal type is a person good at using chopsticks, this caused a great misunderstanding. I am saying this because I am in my 6th [career] year. I just said 'a person good at using chopsticks'. People are [claiming that I said] 'left-handed chopsticks user', but I have never said anything like that. I just said I like people who use chopsticks well. Please don't misunderstand." In this way, she explained that when talking about her ideal type in the past, she did not mean any specific person. Finally clarifying the rumors 5 years later, Luda commented, "It feels like an old congestion went straight down. I really wanted to talk about this."
Luda also explained why the idea of 'left-handed' had come up. She said, "I said I liked left-handed people because it's unique. When I was young, I heard that left-handed people are smart and succeed. Also, when [the fan] asked 'what's your ideal type?' I first answered 'a person who is polite'. Then they asked me if there was anything more unique, and I squeezed out that answer. While trying to tell my fans something special, a great misunderstanding happened. All sorts of things seem to happen as I live my life. How did I endure for 6 years [without saying anything]? Well, a person can't always live while saying everything that they want to say. With that mindset, I had hoped that my fans would understand me."
