Youngbin’s Dating Violence Controversy
Earlier on February 25, an anonymous netizen ‘A’ shared on an online community that her friend was a victim of dating violence.
“My friend suffered dating violence at the hands of her boyfriend who is an idol. She went to the police on February 19, and she is scheduled to attend a questioning on February 26. This person is not a famous idol, but he still has a handful of fans supporting him despite what he’s done which I found selfish, and so I have decided to speak up on behalf of my friend.”Anonymous netizen A
A revealed that her friend has been dating Kpop idol Y for about three months. Kpop idol Y was said to assault A’s friend and choked her until she lost consciousness. A also provided some images as evidence that her friend (B) dated Kpop idol Y.
In a series of text messages between B and Y, the alleged assailant admits he committed such actions.

He’s good lookin <3 🙂
That’s not enough to be a gentleman.
First mistake: dating (he is still a rookie!)
Second mistake: violence!
He looked calm and shy during his i-land time.
