In recent hours, the agency Wake One Entertainment, behind the 5th K-Pop generation boygroup ZEROBASEONE, released a statement denying the accusations that the member Kim Ji Woong cursed a fan after having a video call.
The K-Pop idol has been exposed on social networks after being captured on video when he allegedly cursed a fan right after finishing their call by saying ‘F*ck’, which the follower shared, causing Ji Woong to receive many negative comments for his action.
평소에도 빠순이와의 영통이 끝나시면 인사를 씨~발이라고하시는 편인가요? 제가 잘 모르겠어서 제로즈님들의 의견이 궁금합니다 #김지웅 #제로즈_트친소 pic.twitter.com/128TqzuRfU
