Ken of VIXX was involved in a controversy of using a swear word to another member of VIXX.
In the video celebrating their 5th year anniversary, a brief moment of a sketchbook written “Why did you hit me b****” was caught. This was written by Ken, to another member who was sitting next to him.
He is being condemned of acting so carelessly when he was aware that the camera was rolling. After a while since this news was posted, Ken posted an apology to the public admitting his fault.
“I apologize for not editing the unnecessary moment in the video. Also I apologize for using inappropriate words no matter what the situation was. The video is currently deleted, and we are trying to stop it from spreading. I will be more careful of my actions from now.”
There are fans who are protective of him and say swearing isn’t something to be condemned of, however, majority disagree to their opinion because a lot of teens and children should not be exposed to such, especially from an idol.
The public say that they see his image differently, more negatively after the incident though he has apologized.
