On November 16, rapper San E dropped a surprise track titled "Feminist" via his SNS and YouTube, containing very direct lyrics about the rapper's opinions of feminism, current events, etc.
Alongside the track, San E also wrote, "I do not abhor women. I abhor situations where abhorrence becomes a seed and causes the growth of more abhorrence." It's suspected that San E's unexpected track is his way of responding to netizens' demands on SNS.
Previously, San E caused a stir online after posting a video on his SNS related to the controversial 'Lee Su Station Assault Case'. The case, involving a party of men and a separate party of women who became engaged in a fight, garnered media attention recently after one woman involved accused the male party of being "anti-feminist" and of physically assaulting victims due to this stance. Netizens claimed that the video posted on San E's SNS could prove to be favorable in the male party's defense, and derided San E for taking sides. However, as of November 16, police have declared that the 'Lee Su Station Assault Case' is a case of two-sided violence.
Shortly after the release of San E's "Feminist" track, his label Brand New Music stepped up to comment, "There is no aspect of San E's SNS that we are involved in. We found out about San E's 'Feminist' after his SNS post. It is an unexpected track of which were not informed."
