The photos quickly went viral, and Seunghan has been avoiding the spotlight amidst the controversy.

On August 29 KST, an announcement was made regarding the scheduled recording of the Naver NOW music show 'NPOP,' disclosing that RIIZE member Seunghan would not be participating.

According to the announcement, RIIZE will proceed with their planned pre-recording for their debut performance on 'NPOP' as scheduled.

Dating among K-pop idols has long been prohibited, leading to numerous controversies over the years. Despite this, Seunghan has received a positive response from fans, with many K-pop enthusiasts dismissing negative comments. They emphasize the importance of respecting someone's privacy and highlight that the claim about the girl's age is currently only a rumor.
