Earlier today, allegations of sexual harassment possibly involving former Stray Kids member Woojin drew attention on popular social media platform Twitter.

According to a now-suspended Twitter user, a male idol approached her and her friend while they were in a bar in Korea and inappropriately touched them without their consent. The user claimed that he constantly brought up the name of his former boy group to attract women even though he is no longer part of the group and the agency.

Towards the end, the user hinted that the idol’s name started with a “Woo” and that he was signed to a Big 3 company (SM Entertainment, JYP Entertainment, YG Entertainment). This led many K-pop fans to wonder if former Stray Kids member Woojin was the idol in question. Since these allegations first broke out, other Twitter users have posted about similar experiences involving Woojin and other male idols.

Woojin himself released an official statement on his Twitter:

“Hello. This is Kim Woojin.

I have gone through something ridiculous today.. so I am releasing a statement to inform my fans of this current situation.

Someone spread strange rumors on Twitter and deleted their account..

I have never met this person and I have never been to the place they mentioned.

My fans must have felt very surprised because of this, but since this is not the truth, do not worry too much about it.

In addition, I have recently signed a contract with a company that I really like and I am currently preparing for my solo activities. The company plans to take action against the spread of false rumors and take care of any responses that follow, so please do not worry too much.

I will update you again soon. Thank you.”

  • Woojin would never do anything like that. He wouldn’t even go to a bar and drink or even touch anyone during this virus. This is nothing but rumors and rubbish!!!! Do not believe these posts. She is trying to stop poor Woojinnie from doing his solo activities just because of his looks and personality and his kind, loving self. She is just tryna slow him down. DO not believe this post and help me defend Woojin!!!
    우진은 ​​그런 일을 절대하지 않을 것입니다. 그는이 바이러스 동안 술집에 가서 술을 마시거나 사람을 만지지도 않았습니다. 이것은 소문과 쓰레기입니다 !!!! 이 게시물을 믿지 마십시오. 불쌍한 우 지니가 외모와 성격, 친절하고 사랑스러운 자아 때문에 솔로 활동을하지 못하게하려한다. 그녀는 단지 그를 늦추려고합니다. 이 게시물을 믿지 말고 우진을 지키도록 도와주세요 !!!

    Either this, or Woojin was framed!!!! This could be someone else who did not stan Woojin and hated him. It was probably someone who wanted him to get thrown into prison and not have him do solo activities or so that no one will like him anymore. If I hated someone, I would keep it to myself and not do anything. He (as in the framer) went way too far. I just want Woojin to know that no matter what, I will always stick by his side and support him until the day I die. This person who framed Woojin should be tracked down and dealt with. If there was no man, then track the women down and interrogate them. Stray Kids need to deal with them too because even though Woojin left, doesn’t mean Stray Kids should no long stick to Woojin’s side.

    이거, 아니면 우진이 액자 !!!! 우진이를 찌르지 않고 미워한 사람 일 수도있다. 아마도 그를 감옥에 갇히고 솔로 활동을하지 않거나 아무도 그를 더 이상 좋아하지 않게하기를 원하는 사람이었을 것입니다. 내가 누군가를 미워하면 나는 그것을 혼자만 간직하고 아무것도하지 않을 것이다. 그는 (프레이머에서와 같이) 너무 멀리 갔다. 나는 우진이가 무슨 일이 있어도 죽는 날까지 항상 그의 곁에 붙어서 그를 지원하겠다는 것을 알았 으면한다. 우진을 모함 한이 사람을 추적하고 처리해야한다. 남자가 없다면 여자를 추적하고 심문하십시오. 스트레이 키즈도 우진이가 떠났다고해서 스트레이 키즈가 더 이상 우진의 편에 집착해서는 안된다는 뜻은 아니기 때문에 그들을 상대해야한다.

    • Spoken like a blind cultist follower. Bravo to you for defending someone who doesn’t even k ow or will ever notice you, girl. Bravo. This is hilarious. XD
