Singer OVAN once again explained his alleged sajaegi, a term used for chart manipulation.
On March 8, OVAN posted on his Instagram story with a screenshot of a malicious DM he got, and wrote “Just because I, who is not a thief, couldn’t prove the fact that I am not a thief, my pets, my family, my faith and my friends are being insulted.”
This is his response to a malicious DM he received about how to make boshintang, Korean soup that includes dog meat, with OVAN’s two dogs.
He continued, “I’ve been explaining myself for the past two years, just like you asked. I even demanded the investigation first and most of the charges have been filed that sajaegi is false. It’s impossible for me to explain this to everyone, and even the ones who know the fact chose to curse me.” Then he finished his post by saying, “I’m sad and in so much pain. I have no idea what to do. I didn’t top the chart because I wanted to. Please save me.”
On March 6, OVAN beat BTS’s “ON” and ZICO’s “Any Song” to top the real-time ranking chart of the music site Genie. He expressed his gratitude at the time saying, “Thank you for using me, who really is nothing.”
