FNC Entertainment Responses to SF9 Inseong Scandal
Regarding the rumors of the SF9 Inseong scandal, FNC Entertainment responses with an official statement.
According to FNC’s statement, even though they edited out the video, SF9 Inseong hadn’t said anything wrong. They only edited the video because it could cause some misunderstanding.
“As a result of checking the shape of Inseong’s mouth through other cuts that were not used in the video, the current rumors circulating in the community are groundless.
This video was already uploaded in May, and there was an internal comment about the scene, so we checked the shape of his mouth. Even though he didn’t say anything wrong, we edited the video since it could cause misunderstandings. We will be more careful about content production from now on.”FNC Entertainment.
