The K-Pop world is on alert after nude photos of solo female singer, Ailee, were recently released through the internet.
Some news sites have not reported on the released photos themselves, including us here at Kmusic. We are asking that K-Pop fans, not just Aileens, to support Ailee at this time and not to re-post articles containing the photos. Unfortunately the damage has already been done, but perhaps we can lessen the impact and in respect to Ailee, cease the spread of those photos.
Ailee’s company, YMC Entertainment, has now released an official statement stating that they will be taking legal action against the perpetrator who leaked the photos. The company also provided an explanation of where the photos came from. It was revealed that while Ailee was living in the US, she was asked to become a model for a famous underwear company. Due to the nature of the product, the company told Ailee she must take pictures in the nude for better examination of her body. Ailee trusted that the pictures would only be used as stated. However, once the photos were taken the company cut all ties. Ailee took the appropriate steps and reported the matter to the police -but regrettably nothing was able to be done due to lack of evidence. It’s rumored that many other young girls were also scammed in the same manner.
How the photos may have now been released to the media YMC Entertainment said “Ailee consulted her ex-boyfriend on the matter. Ailee shared the photos with him after he persuaded her that he needs the photos to get a better idea on the issue.”
YMC also revealed that the ex-boyfriend works for the news website allkpop – one of the first ones to report on the photo release. In regards to this, YMC has stated that they plan on taking legal action and will be protecting Ailee through out this deplorable situation.
YMC’s statement continued “As it was an event that happened when she was young and thoughtless, this has proved to be a great pain for Ailee’s family and Ailee, who must live her life as a woman before she is a singer. The issue is something that has given Ailee much shock and pain in the past. Even with such pain, Ailee went for her dreams, so we are worried that this past event will hurt her even more. We ask that you send words of comfort and encouragement to Ailee to continue her career, so that she does not continue being in pain.”
Here at Kmusic, we also ask the same thing. Please remember that while we love and adore our idols, they are humans first and foremost. They have feelings, make mistakes and have families that care about them.
So please continue to show your considerate support.
