Kim YongGuk Criticized For Abandoning Cat
First the dating rumors with SONAMOO‘s NaHyun, then the sudden cancelation of his golden ticket event without an explanation, and now this.
We haven’t seen a K-Pop idol who has appeared on the news headlines so many times in one day since a while back.
Former JBJ member Kim YongGuk has another controversy to add on his current list, and this time it involves abandoning his pet cat. Why did he abandon his pet cat you ask? According to reports from South Korean news agencies, it was because he wanted a pure-breed cat.
The cats you see below are the ones he had during the time of his activities in JBJ.
And below is a post on social media talking about a “stray” cat that loves to be around people.
Fans soon made the connection and discovered that the cat was Rcy, the cat that they assumed was with YongGuk.
When a fan contacted YongGuk’s agency about the cat, the animal shelter that was taking care of Rcy announced on social media that someone was going to take her. And it was revealed that the person picking the cat up was a former employee of YongGuk’s agency.
When fans asked to see Rcy, a photo of her was uploaded, but the ears were cropped out, suggesting that it was to hide the stamp of the animal shelter.
Basically, fans soon caught on and began criticizing YongGuk, especially after photos of him with new cats were uploaded on his social media account. They couldn’t believe that he abandoned Rcy and allegedly lied about keeping her when it was also revealed that a former employee of YongGuk’s agency was taking care of Rcy the whole time.
Many have said some pretty strong things about the idol by calling him “trash”.
They’ve also stated that he was not worthy to raise a pet.
What do you make of this situation?
