Laysha’s Som addresses camera controversy
On Wednesday, Som shared a screen capture on Instagram of a post promoting the photos of Goeun. “Personal photos of Laysha’s Goeun are up … [we should] keep these in our possession forever. You do not need to verify who you are, just put any number in for your ID and password [and then you can see the photos],” the post read.
The photos that surfaced were of Goeun in her home, at her agency and even in her car.
“Keep in your possession forever? What are you going to do with them once they are in your possession forever?” Som wrote on her Instagram on Wednesday. “I thought that hidden cameras were something that you only saw on TV or on the internet, but when it happened to someone near me, I couldn’t help but cry.”
“I am so sad that people would think we would do this for noise marketing,“ said Goeun in an official statement released by JS Entertainment on Friday. “The photos were taken when we were filming a variety show that tapes our everyday lives … we are considering taking legal actions against whoever is responsible,“ she added.
Laysha debuted in December 2015. Their songs include “Party Tonight” (2016), “Chocolate Cream” (2016) and “Pink Label” (2017).
