ENHYPEN‘s Jake became one of the topic trends in South Korea in the last couple of days because of the outrage of some K-Netizens during a livestream. The idol was drinking from a Starbucks cup. This mere action sparked even more controversy amid Starbucks’ situation.
On January 5, 2024, Jake made a livestream while he was enjoying a Starbucks drink. However, the K-Netizens weren’t as happy as he was. Jake’s fans tried to warn him about the matter, and he completely understood his assignment. Despite this, it was just too late. The idol switched the cup out, in favor of a glass one.
The K-Netizen’s outrage emerges from the latest boycott against Starbucks in support of the recent events in the world. Numerous customers stopped buying drinks in Starbucks, particularly in the United States, and this has been one of the most controversial matters in America for the last couple of weeks because of the delicate situation.
ENHYPEN’s Jake replied to a fan’s post on Weverse, where he apologized for drinking Starbucks, and he was completely thankful to his fans for letting him know why it wasn’t appropriate. The idol politely learned from his mistakes and apologized to the Netizens because of the weight of his actions.
