Girls’ Generation’s Hyoyeon refuted the allegations raised by Kim Sang Kyo,  the first informant of the “Burning Sun Scandal.” He fingered at Hyoyeon as he wrote, “Let me ask you one thing. Who was the actress who was drooling under the influence of drugs that day that Ha XX and Ahn XX officers from Yeoksam District couldn’t even enter the club? You must have seen.” Hyoyeon, who suddenly got caught up in a controversy, warned the haters, “I’m going to punish you hard this time. Also! I’ll delete this tomorrow, but not because I’m scared. If you don’t speak up, people think you’re a pushover.” Nevertheless, Kim continues to raise more controversies by mentioning Hyoyeon.

The agency contract for the rookie group TOO sparked a heated conflict between n.CH and CJENM. TOO, which debuted last year, was created through Mnet’s TO BE WORLD KLASS. It is also the group co-produced by Stone Music Entertainment under CJ ENM and girl group Nature’s agency n.CH Entertainment. However, a controversy sparked when n.CH Entertainment stated, “CJ ENM abruptly order us to take our hands off from the TOO’s management,” and CJ ENM refuted the claim as they believe their order to be fair and square. n.CH, however, rebutted all of CJ ENM’s statement through various media outlets and appealed, “please stop the power-trip of a conglomerate.” Because of the ongoing battle, TOO, who planned to make their comeback in the second half of last year, postponed the release of their new album.
