Lee Hong-Ki from FT Island angrily responded to public’s accusation of being a regular viewer of Afreeca TV BJ Chulgoo by saying “it was coincidental.”

The controversy arose when some fans accused Lee Hong-Ki of regularly watching a problematic Afreeca TV BJ Chulgoo’s contents.

BJ Chulgoo is known for his violent contents, such as bashing on other BJ’s, using violence against women, and mocking basic livelihood security recipients. In addition, he recently received much criticism for making imprudent comments regarding the May 18th Democratic Movement in Gwangju.


When the accusation led to severe criticism from the public, Lee Hong-Ki took to his Instagram to explain and deny the rumors. However, his bitter response to the fans outraged the public even more, who argued that Lee Hong-Ki wasn’t being professional with his explanation.

Here’s Lee Hong-Ki’s response in direct translation:

Wow. You guys are driving me crazy. I wasn’t watching his contents when he was doing all that gross stuff that you are telling me that he did. In the morning, I was watching other videos and came across this one particular video by him. What? You lost respect for me after this? If you really know me, then you know that I’m not that type of person. I don’t understand what kind of explanation you want from me. I can’t do anything about the respect that’s already been lost, but I’m not who you think I am. Let’s just drop the conversation now.
