Why Monsta X’s Wonho Leave The Group? Check Out The Details, Here!
Do you know about Monsta X’s Wonho, who has now officially left the group due to scandals and controversies in the past? Even though Wonho is no longer active as a member of Monsta X anymore, the fans still hope that Wonho can come back soon and promote with other members. But actually what happened so Wonho decided to get out of Monsta X?
If you’re curious, let’s look in more detail about the scandal and controversy that Wonho has done in the past so he decided to leave the group and stop being an idol in the article below.
Wonho’s Debt Rumor and Smoke Marijuana
The beginning of the controversy occurred starting from a similar relationship between Han Seo-hee and ulzzang Jung Da-eun who is a transgender. They posted a photo on Instagram saying that Monsta X’s Wonho was once in debt to Jung Da-eun and the post immediately attracted the attention of fans, especially Monbebe throughout the world. The fans were angry because they knew that before Han Seo-hee often looked for problems with idols, such as Bigbang’s TOP, BTS ‘V and iKON’s B.I.
On October 29, Jung Da-eun posted a picture of Wonho on TV and wrote, “Ho-seok (Wonho’s real name), when will you pay your debt?”
Han Seo-hee commented on Jung Da-eun’s post. “Give Da-Eun 30 million won.”
In response, Starship Entertainment as the agency released its official statement on October 30, 2019. “(The rumors) are not true, and we are considering the possibility of taking legal action,” the agency said.
Although it has been denied, Wonho is still flooded with negative comments by netizens. Some netizens even believe that the idol born in 1993 does indeed owe it to Jung Da-eun.
“It doesn’t sound like he’s joking,” commented netizens. “Imagine how hard he tried to run away from his debt to the point that Jung Da-eun had to do this,” added another netizen. “I will also be upset if someone borrows 30 million won from me and hasn’t returned it in 6 years,” said another.
“The most accurate memory is from people who lend money,” netizens said. “30 million won is not a small amount, how could anyone forget to borrow that much money? Wonho is clearly cowardly and lies to his agency that he never borrowed it? According to his Instagram post, he borrowed it 6 years ago and it seems like everyone around them also know about it,” concluded the other.
After that, Han Seo-hee and Jung Da-eun still want to reveal other things about Wonho in the past to the public. They said Wonho was a criminal and told him about what he had done in the past before debuting as a famous idol.
Beside Instagram, Jung Da-eun also revealed the story of Wonho’s past on his personal Twitter, @THCvors.
“I know what you did in 2008. The Siwon Detention Center for special theft,” wrote the Twitter account on October 30, 2019. In the next tweet, he continued, ”I haven’t even started yet. Does entering a juvenile detention center make you a convict?”
“You live your own life now,” continued Han Seo-hee in the next tweet. “This is not Jung Da-eun but Han Seo-hee.”
Han Seo-hee’s accusation against Wonho is not a mild accusation considering that someone was only put in a detention center after committing a serious crime. The drama of the two parties did not escape the comments of netizens.
“Heol, he not only did not pay debts for 6 years but also never entered a detention center.”
“The law for minors is poor so people rarely enter the detention center. If he gets put in there and is on his record it means he could be Lee Choon Jae or Jo Doo Soon next.”
“Starship, haha. Investigated the case of voting manipulation and now claiming members like this, haha. Do they want to be the next YG?”
“Doesn’t special theft mean he uses weapons?”
“An idol who has a record of special theft, hahaha. Ridiculous children like this become celebrities, hahaha.”
Jung Da-eun also hasn’t run out of ways to attack Wonho besides the debt case that Wonho hasn’t paid to Jung Da-eun. This time he told me about how he and Wonho had smoked marijuana together with him.
The case of Wonho smoking marijuana was also confirmed by Jo, the former director of Burning Sun who is now being held in the Seoul Detention Center. Through one of the Dispatch interviews on November 1, 2019, Jo revealed how he witnessed Wonho and Jung Da-eun living together and smoking weed while Jo was also in the same place.
This event was told by Jo happened in October 2013. At that time, Jo wanted to borrow Jung Da-eun’s branded belt. Because Jung Da-eun was out, Jo was invited into the apartment to find the item herself.
When Jo arrived, there really wasn’t anyone in Jung Da-eun’s apartment. But while searching for a belt, he heard the sound of the door opening, and Jung Da-eun talked to a man who was later declared as Hoseok, aka former member of Monsta X’s Wonho.
Jo then listened to their conversation. Wonho called out something from his pocket and asked, “Have you ever sucked this?” The bag is said to contain cannabis. Lee Da-eun and Wonho were said to be sucking on this illegal item, without knowing that Jo was still in the apartment.
Some time later, Wonho’s phone rang and he left Jung Da-eun’s apartment to answer the call. This opportunity was used by Jo to get out of the place. When meeting with Jo, Jung Da-eun looked shocked.
“What are you two doing,” Jo said.
“You just pretend you didn’t see anything,” replied Jung Da-eun.
“Smells like weed,” Jo said.
Contacted separately by Dispatch, Jung Da-eun confirmed that he had smoked marijuana with Wonho.
“Yes, that’s right. I smoked marijuana with him. That’s the truth. It’s also true that Jo was in the wardrobe and heard it at the time,” Jung Da-eun said. Jung Da-eun said Wonho didn’t want to reveal where he got marijuana. “I asked him where he got it from, but he said it was confidential. But I guessed who was selling it to him,” said Jung Da-eun.
The dispatch also mentioned that in September 2019 the police began investigating cases related to Wonho. At that time, Jo was being held at the Seoul Detention Center, while Jung Da-eun was at the Gwangju Detention Center. His second statement about Wonho is consistent, despite being in a different detention.
There are two investigation units formed by the police to investigate this case. One of the units even had a drug test by examining Wonho’s hair. At that time, Wonho had just returned to South Korea from Germany. However, the police do not want to open the test results, because they are still being investigated.
