The private life of SUNG YU VIN, 21-year-old singer of MYTEEN’s former member, and KIM SO HEE, 24, former member of the IVY group, is controversial.
The pictures called “프듀 출신 아이돌 스캐 들 (Former Produce Idol Scandal)“ are spreading rapidly on various social networking sites and online communities on Saturday.
The published photo shows the two young persons with masks and kissing with their eyes closed. The netizens assumed that the characters in the photos were SUNG YU VIN and KIM SO HEE, speculating that the two could have a relationship.
SUNG YU VIN and KIM SO HEE participated together in the MV of KIM SO HEE‘s new song, “Sobok Sobok”, in 2017, to create a friendly atmosphere.
The two young people were affiliated with Music Works. Last month, KIM SO HEE left Music Works.
SUNG YU VIN has also appeared in survival programs such as Mnet’s “Superstar K6” and “Produce X101”. KIM SO HEE is a former participant of “Produce 101” season 1 and was also a member of the C.I.V.A. and IVY.
MYTEEN, which debuted in 2017, recently announced its dissolution. SUNG YU VIN has formed a unit with KIM KUK HUN of MYTEEN and is expected to make a strong comeback with the release of a new song today.
Coincidentally, there are many suspicions about why photos of his private life were leaked on the day of the release of the new song.
Music Works agency has made an official announcement :
Hello, we are Music Works.
