Man Behind Apinks Death Threat Shares His Reasoning + Hayoung Responds To Incident

The man responsible for death threats against Apink has come forward to reveal his thoughts on the incident.

On June 15, he contacted media agency OSEN saying that he called because the reported details are not true. He said, It is not true that I threatened to kill them because Apinks agency sued me for malicious comments. I called just twice. I also never disturbed the companys work.

The man claimed that his reason for the threat was because of the broadcast of Apink on blind dates with male actor trainees on a reality program. He explained, As a fan of Apink for six years, I spent a lot of time and money on Apink. To see Apink on blind dates with not even actors, but actor trainees, I felt betrayed. I called their agency to complain, but they gave a vague answer saying they didnt know, which made me angry. So I called the police with the death threat.
