[Talk of the town]Private thoughts go public
Psy’s sister wrote on her private online Web site that her brother is innocent. “My little brother has always been responsible, yet he is being trampled by irresponsible statements made by other people,” she wrote. “Everybody speaks ill of him behind his back, although he did nothing wrong to get the placement at the computer company.” She titled her article, “Scary Country.”
Her writings became known to the general public via an Internet portal site, and some said that Park Jae-eun’s article caused them grave concern.
Over 1,500 Internet users left postings and some of them were far from pleasing, as people attacked her and her brother.
In the end, she decided to delete her posting, after consultation with her brother’s agency. Then she uploaded another article on the Web site, which read, “It was just a private thought, which I wanted to share with my friends.”
