Will the Yang Bao Bei (杨宝贝) saga ever be over? Well, YouTuber Lim Shang Jin (林尚进) is hoping to end his part of the drama at least! YBB and Shang Jin have been locked in a messy feud after she accused him of sexually assaulting her. It’s escalated to Shang Jin getting arrested, and YBB getting sued.
YBB supposedly tried to bring the issue to an end on 11th January after apologising to Shang Jin publicly. However, the YouTuber has not accepted the apology. In fact, he corrected her on several points, and sternly told her not to involve him in the mess again!
YBB claimed to have apologised to Shang Jin last August. According to her posts and videos, Shang Jin had supposedly apologised to her as well. However, as many had pointed out, YBB had only announced the apology after her alleged co-conspirator, Chris Hoo and YouTuber Song Yi revealed she’d concocted a scheme to get back at Shang Jin.
Although the apology was prettily done, YouTuber Shang Jin doesn’t seem very impressed. He left a well-written comment on her YouTube video, calling her out on her apology. According to Shang Jin, YBB had called him last August, but he hadn’t apologised. “I said that I (was) just defending myself, not dealing with you,” he wrote. “After your cousin apologised publicly, I didn’t (get involved).”
However, Shang Jin questioned why she hadn’t made her public apology then. “You didn’t publicly apologise until your accomplice betrayed you,” he said. “This will only make people (think) that you were forced to apologise.” He also claimed he hadn’t apologised to YBB. “Why (did you) repeat that I’m apologising to you in your public apology?” Shang Jin asked. “So, are you apologising, or am I apologising?”
Aside from him taking an issue with the content of her apology, Shang Jin was also annoyed with how she had done it. “If you want to apologise publicly, an apology is enough,” he pointed out. “Why do you have to apologise so flamboyantly?” Additionally, Shang Jin didn’t appreciate YBB bringing up the current love of his life, influencer Gatita Yan. “(As for) my personal affairs, don’t mention it. I really like Gatita and have a crush on her,” he openly admitted. “I can see her dedication to me. It’s not as superficial as you claim, it’s unfair to her.” Shang Jin added that Gatita had nothing to do with her apology.
The YouTuber had been enjoying half a year of peace, but it wasn’t easy. After the controversy, some businesses refused to collaborate with him. He’s recovered somewhat since then, but isn’t happy to be brought back into the mess.
Although he asked YBB to contact him via private messaging, he did admit that he doesn’t trust her anymore. “Because I don’t know if you will record (the) phone calls, screenshot (the) messages, and expose my private affairs,” he stated. “(Yang Bao Bei), I have zero resentment and zero trust in you.” Shang Jin ended his message to her with a warning. “I never asked you to apologise,” he said. “You drag me in again and I will call the police. Enough.”
YouTuber Song Yi helpfully provided proof by uploading a film of YBB apologising to Shang Jin over the phone. According to Song Yi, the duo had decided to film the call as they were afraid YBB would attempt to trick Shang Jin again. To give credit to YBB, it did start out as an apology. She claimed Shang Jin was “(her) good friend” and stated that she “didn’t mean it, (she was) really crazy“.
Unfortunately, the situation devolved when they brought up a video Shang Jin had made with five others, condemning YBB’s scams. YBB started whining at Shang Jin, asking why he hadn’t protected her. The YouTuber attempted to explain but she didn’t give him a chance and continued scolding him. Shang Jin got visibly exhausted as YBB continued screaming and crying at him.
It finally ended when she exclaimed he wasn’t a gentleman at all. Shang Jin agreed tiredly. Funnily enough, YBB’s mood changed very quickly after that. She thanked him for answering the call, claimed everything was fine now and said good night. Needless to say, the two guys were left bewildered by the call. Both shared they suspected YBB wanted to record the call and use it for her own purposes.
Well, hopefully YBB will leave Shang Jin alone now. After all, he has moved on with his life and has made it clear he wants no part of her drama. He’s got his own drama going on with his new leading lady, Gatita Yan. YBB will simply have to find someone else to play his part.
