Netizens Boycott Music Festival After Discovering Singer Involved In Child Prostitution Is In Lineup
Netizens are currently boycotting the Urban Music Festival which is scheduled to take place on July 6th(Seoul) and July 20th (Daegu), as they have discovered that singer Lee Soo, who was caught up in a prostitution scandal involving a minor in her middle school years back in 2009, was part of the lineup.
Many have been demanding for Lee Soo to be removed from the lineup.
The management of the Urban Music Festival has responded with the following statement below.
“Many people are excessively voicing their opposition against a particular artist at the moment. We ask that everyone refrains from abusive and degrading language against the artists.”
Below are some of the comments left by netizens, with some suggesting that Lee Soo’s talents alone could redeem him of his past scandal.
“If it’s Lee Soo, people should forgive him. Is there anyone who has never heard of his songs or sang along to his songs lol”
“All we have to do is just not watch the concert.”
“Artist my a**, he’s just a sex crime offender.”
“Prostitution involving minor wow lol You guys might as well be better off just letting SeungRi back on TV shows.”
