When it comes to living the idol life, it’s a fine line between performing and living your private life. However, not everyone seems to agree with that. Some seem to think that they’re entitled to every aspect of an idol’s life. Take what happened between Thai BL actor Phusanu Wongsasavanichakorn aka Yoon and rich lady Leena Jung.
Yoon recently appeared on a live stream with Leena Jung who was hosting said stream. However, the stream soon turned into an uncomfortable show for Yoon, thanks to Leena’s actions. The rich hostess pawed at Yoon’s clothes several times and even smelled his armpit! Needless to say, Yoon wasn’t the only one disturbed.
The duo had apparently been doing a live stream together for a brand. However, no one expected Leena to behave the way she did. From the onset, Leena was tugging at Yoon’s clothes, trying to lift them. Yoon stopped her attempts, but kept his composure with a smile.
Unfortunately, it wasn’t enough to deter Leena. She eventually managed to pull up his sleeve, lifted his arm and dove to smell his armpit. While she broke away clapping and laughing, Yoon pulled his sleeve back down, with a rather stiff smile.
Fans were quick to denounce Leena’s actions online. “This is disgusting,” one Twitter user commented. “How can she possibly think this is appropriate behaviour.” Several claimed it was “sexual harassment” with others pointing out Yoon’s demeanour becoming forced as time went by. A few bluntly stated her action of smelling his armpits seemed perverted. However, things got worse when they discovered Yoon had apologised to Leena.
Yoon’s company, Y.Entertainment later uploaded a statement on 6th September regarding the broadcast. They apologised for the discomfort viewers may have experienced and stated that they do not condone such actions. “We are not indifferent to the problems that arise (from the situation),” they stated.
They also promised to prevent such incidents from occurring with their artists again and mentioned that Yoon is currently taking a break to recuperate his mental health. But fans are still hoping the company will “demand that the MC (Leena) publicly apologize” or “take legal action for harassment“.
Well, we cannot imagine how traumatic the experience was for Yoon. We sincerely hope he feels better soon and that he will be treated with more respect in the future.
