She was a guest on the 20th's episode of 'Party People'. She chose not being able to do what she wanted the most as the thing that pained her the most. She said, "I wanted to sign so much, and I wanted to sing so much in front of fans, but I wasn't free to do so.

VIXX’s Leo allegedly caught with the same controversial fansite master from last year’s controversy?

VIXX's Leo has been accused of once again being friendly with a controversial fansite master.

The accused fansite master owns the fansite 'Close to You'. She had come to his musical to do a food support for him. The two hung out together and disappeared together afterward, and were caught on camera. This is the same fansite master that had been the center of issue last year, who threw a birthday party for Leo that he attended. In the K-pop fandom, it's taboo for idols to be friends with a single fan, because it encourages hierarchy in fandom. When the situation broke out last year, Leo had told fans to trust him not to do such things before turning his Instagram and Twitter accounts private.

[OP-ED] Bold Moves: How More K-Pop artists are Standing Up to Censorship

If there's one constant element that K-pop fans (and likely artists, too) have learned to hate over the years, it's definitely censorship. The practice comes into play at seemingly random intervals, without much consistency governing the reasons why a song or video might end up banned from broadcast. Indeed, K-pop content itself has an interesting and arguably tumultuous relationship with entities like the Korean Communications Commission and KBS, who continue to extend their moral judgment over all the media that's released to the public for broadcast.
