With the news of rapper Microdot‘s parents having being involved in a scam sweeping across South Korea by a storm, the recent issue seems to have caused a bit of collateral damage as well.
South Korean netizens have also been reminded that iKON member B.I’s father too has once been arrested for a similar incident involving an embezzlement case. The idol’s father was arrested on suspicions of embezzling $2.4 million back in November 2014.
But it’s not just B.I’s father that has been talked about recently but also actresses Lee YuBi and Lee DaIn as well. Their father, Im YoungKyu was sentenced to three years in prison for being involved in stock market manipulation.
South Korean netizens have been giving these celebrities a new nickname. While they initially called them ‘silver spoon celebrities’ for being portrayed as celebs born into wealthy and privileged families, they are now being referred to as ‘stolen spoon celebrities’, as they have been saying that their wealth were obtained through illegal means.
