Pledis Entertainment

K-netizens are heavily criticizing Pledis Entertainment and accusing the agency of being purely money-driven, without any considerations for what is happening in society.

What could have possibly triggered such accusations from netizens?

It all has to do with the current #METOO movement that is taking South Korea by a storm at the moment. For those that may be unaware, NU'EST member Kang DongHo had been accused of sexual harassment in the past. An alleged victim came forth and contended that the K-Pop idol exhibited unwanted sexual behavior towards her inside a public bus during her middle school years.

OK so lets say he stops all promotional work costing him and the agency a heap money then gets cleared of any wrong doing ????
Will the accuser or these idiot Knetizens then reimburse them for the money they lose
I`m getting really annoyed with all these accusations without evidence especially when those accused are then instantly branded as guilty....

If you have followed the case you would know the girl is lying. Why should an innocent man stop his career for salty faker.
