Jang Jae-in Accused Nam Tae-hyun of Cheating on Her
From a reliable source, on June 7, around 3 a.m. KST, Jang Jae In reportedly uploaded multiple posts on Instagram blaming her boyfriend, Nam Tae Hyun, for cheating on her.
The first post contained screenshots of a KakaoTalk conversation between Nam Tae Hyun and an unidentified woman known as “A”, that were reportedly sent to Jang by “A” herself. Moreover, other posts also contained screenshots of text messages on direct message Instagram sent between Jang Jae In and “A.”
In the KakaoTalk screenshots, “A” accuses Nam Tae Hyun about lying to her when he told her that he had broken up with his girlfriend a month before. She said that her friend had seen him with Jang Jane In at a movie theater in Yongsan. For his response, Nam Tae Hyun said that his relationship with Jang Jae In was “ambiguous” and that “A’s” friend had mistaken the condition for something else. Nam Tae Hyun went on to say that “A” had told him she wanted to be in a relationship, and “A” responded that she had made it clear that she would only be in a relationship with him if he had broken up with his girlfriend.
In the screenshot of “A” and Jang Jae In’s conversation on Instagram, “A” sends Jang Jae In what is assumed to be screenshots of the KakaoTalk conversation. She apologized to Jang Jae In for accompanying Nam Tae Hyun the night before last and said that she would never have started the relationship if she had known that Nam Tae Hyun and Jang Jae In were still dating. “A” said that Nam Tae Hyun had told her that the agency would not let him admit that he had broken up with Jang Jae In, but “A” had recently come to understand that this was a dishonesty.
Jang Jae In then stated on his Instagram account, either in post captions or in screenshots of a note-taking app on her phone:
1. We were just getting to know each other, but you decided on your own to publicly reveal our relationship and put me and my agency in a difficult situation. If you’re going to live like this, you should just have kept it private. I wondered why you were so focused on publicly revealing our relationship, but now I realize it’s because you go around doing stuff like this.
To Nam Tae Hyun, and in particular, to Nam Tae Hyun’s fans, stop sending me malicious DMs and comments. The other women must have quietly let this go, but I refuse to see another woman fall victim. I don’t expect you to come to your senses, but you should at least have the bare minimum of a conscience.
2. [Jang Jae In tagged Nam Tae Hyun’s Instagram username here] This person is the one who told me to say on ‘Studio Vibes’ that I was the one who forced us to pretend there was a previous engagement. He was worried that his image would be ruined because he kept breaking his promises, so I agreed to say that I was the one who pretended.
3. To the ‘Studio Vibes’ members, I really regret that I left the group chat and cut off contact with all of you. That person hated me contacting other people, particularly in the ‘Studio Vibes’ group chat, so I decided to leave.
I wrote this myself. It seems like he thought that other people lived the way he did. I feel bad because I have grown distant from good people.
Currently, Jang Jae In’s Instagram has no posts, but her Instagram bio has changed to the following: “All the rumors about you were real. I know it’s not just ‘one’. Thank you for letting me speak out. Don’t let any man control you. That’s all.”
Also in her Instagram stories, she uploaded this statement in English.
