Amid rumors about Song Ha Ye being the “mastermind” behind exposing Park Kyung’s school violence, Song Ha Ye’s agency strongly denied the allegations.
On Oct. 15, former entertainment reporter Lee Jin Ho claimed that Song Hae Ye is behind the recent controversy over Park Kyung’s school violence through his YouTube channel.
He dropped the recorded phone call of Lee Sung Kwon, the head of Song Ha Ye’s agency, where Lee shouts, “I’m going to bury Park Kyung with what I know. I found a person who’s the victim of his school violence. He will never be able to come back to the music industry. And Block B is the one who did sajaegi. I’m really pissed.”
In response, Lee Sung Kwon personally held a telephone interview with OSEN, and he said, “I saw the comment about Park Kyung’s school violence when Song Ha Ye was having a tough time. I wanted to find the person but I couldn’t. I’ve never seen the guy (who first wrote about Park Kyung’s school violence).” He then added, “I hope the company’s dogmatic action won’t harm the artist. If there’s something I need to take responsibility for, then I will take the responsibility. But I haven’t forgiven Park Kyung.”
In November last year, Park Kyung raised the suspicion of “sajaegi” (chart manipulation) by mentioning singers’ real names, including Song Ha Ye. He was later indicted on charges of defamation and received a summary order of 5 million won (about 4,276 USD) in fines.
He was recently embroiled in a controversy over school violence when a netizen who claimed to be the victim of his school bully wrote a lengthy post. Soon, Park Kyung admitted to the fact and apologized.
Two days ago, Park Kyung announced that he will be joining the army on Oct. 19.
