Singer Juckjae posted a post that seemed to support MC the Max Lee Soo, and was engulfed in controversy in defending criminals.
On the 25th, Juckjae introduced an album commemorating the 20th anniversary of MC The Max on his SNS. He added, “I won’t be uploading guitar music songs someday, but I really wanted to upload this album.”
As a result, some fans responded that they were advocating for the sex offender Lee Soo, and Juckjae expressed his frustration with a long text.
“It’s frustrating. It’s a nuance that I can’t have a face-to-face discussion, and as I’m looking at each of the fan cafe posts that come up, I really care for me and look at me with anxiety. I couldn’t fall asleep, so I left a message.” He said, “I think there are too many wrong information, so I may be mistaken.
“Before you hate someone, you may want to take some time to think about whether that feeling is something you just want to hate or whether that person’s sin deserves punishment. I have no intention of advocating for sex offenders. Never misunderstand.”
He added, “I want to say that a lot of fake news and rumors are being reproduced, and public opinion is demonizing a human being more than necessary.”
As a rebuttal post continued after him, “There were many people who knew other rumors besides the facts. Do you think that every crime should leave the light and heaviness of crime, and once committed, it should remain like scarlet letters until death?”
In 2009, while serving as a public service worker, Lee Soo was investigated by the prosecution for prostitution of minors. However, he received probation on condition of being a first offender and receiving education to prevent recidivism.
