Earlier today (Wednesday, 15th September) Epik High member Tablo (타블로) took to his Twitter to share a heartbreaking confession with his fans.
As revealed by Tablo himself on his social media, he was previously “abandoned” by his circle of friends back when he was at his low point in life.
“Been there. 99% of my “crew,” “squad,” “fam,” etc. abandoned me the very second I became a liability. Though, they were all tears and prayer hands when the dust settled,” the “Happen Ending” hit-maker wrote on his post.
In another Twitter update, Tablo (real name Lee Seon Woong) told his followers, “Never attempt to advise me on who I can and cannot support. It won’t work on me. I’m not interested in doing the ‘right’ or ‘smart’ thing, I’m only interested in doing the human thing.”
With over 4k combined retweets at the time of writing , the replies section has been flooded with a number of social media users leaving positive and uplifting remarks in an effort to cheer the rapper up. One Twitter user wrote, “You definitely deserve better, Tablo. Thank you for moving forward and not giving up.”
As speculated by a few fans, it appears that Tablo’s cryptic statement came as a response to the recent backlash surrounding his former label mate B.I. To this, one netizen expressed, “Even if Epik High wasn’t already one of my favourite groups, the way you stood up for and stood by Hanbin (and Lee Hi) would make me loyal to you for life. I respect your loyalty and your humanity.”

Sorry to hear that you had to endure all this, Tablo. We really hope that you’ll be able come back stronger than ever after all the hardship you went through!
