Fans Question The “Suspicious Timing” Of WAKEONE’s Sudden Statement Following Kim Jiwoong’s Attitude Controversy

The company did not react when other members were hurt.

ZEROBASEONE‘s Kim Jiwoong recently fell into controversy when a netizen accused him of having a bad attitude during a video call. Allegedly, he said “f*ck” in Korean when he thought the call had ended.

As soon as it went viral, WAKEONE released a statement addressing various crime that had been committed against the members, such as trespassing in the dorms, and obtaining the members’ phone numbers illegally.

The company did not directly name Kim Jiwoong’s controversy, neither did they deny the claims made towards them. At this stage, before investigations are complete, it would be disadvantageous for the company to deny or admit to anything. WAKEONE simply alluded to the controversy by pledging their utmost effort into uncovering the truth.

As such, fans have been questioning the timing of the statement. The company has kept silent about many of the attacks faced by the other members, only to make a statement past office hours, as soon as Kim Jiwoong’s controversy arose.

The company just has to upload a statement now about lawsuits for Park Gunwook’s case. F*cking skilled.

They f*cking kept quiet after receiving all those protest trucks, and when Park Gunwook was being targeted, and now they’re suddenly doing this shit, making people want to curse at them. They’re f*cking unskilled LOL. The workers would’ve felt so crummy going to work at 2am to write this, but it has the opposite effect. Can’t believe such an idiotic company exists IRL.

Many fans are angered that the company only chooses now to step up, despite the other members facing hardships and hate in the past. You can read more about Kim Jiwoong’s controversy below.
