During ITZY members Ryujin and Yeji's recent V Live broadcast, fans began to write comments that caught Ryujin's attention. Coming across these comments, Ryujin read out loud, "Crush should pay more taxes" and quickly understood what the fans had meant. However, Yeji did not quite understand what the fans were talking about.
Ryujin then caught many off-guard when she proceeded to casually whisper into Yeji's ear, "It's because [Crush] is currently dating Joy sunbaenim." Yeji then replied, "Mm. Mm. But why is that related to the comments?" Ryujin then further explained, "People are telling him to pay more taxes."

In response, netizens commented:
"It's my first time seeing an idol talk about another idol's dating scandal."
"Their action was thoughtless, but they'll probably be better about it next time."
"I mean, it's not like they're in a secret relationship or anything. What's the problem?"
"They should read comments with filter TT."
"But they're not in the same company. Why were comments suddenly talking about another company's idol?"
"It seems like just a happening that occurred after thoughtlessly reading comments."
"They're both female idols, so it was kind of thoughtless of her to say that."
"That was kind of thoughtless, but it's not to the point of being cursed at."
