Back in 2013, 6Theory Media Vice President of Content Eun Duk "Daniel" Lee, the ex-boyfriend of K-pop star Ailee, reportedly attempted to sell nude footage of the vocalist to the South Korean tabloid Dispatch. When the photographsseemedin a while thereafter at the Korean entertainment news web page allkpop, enthusiasts were furious.

"It was our Watergate," Soompi editor AJ Park told the nationally broadcast WNYC program Radiolab, in a work released on Wednesday. "It was our K-popgate. It replaced everything."

But it was the revelation that Lee's corporate 6Theory Media owns allkpop that truly threw gas on the flame for lots of fans.

Though any connection with Ailee's ex throughcall or his connection to allkpop was conspicuously omitted of the Radiolab report, which testedthe hotupward thrust of paparazzi in Korea. The importance of the liked radio display and podcast, respected for it is in-depth and outside-the-box reporting, omitting such severemain points wasn't lost on Beyond Hallyu editor Lizzie Parker.

In a seething op-ed published on the UK-based K-pop-themed site on Wednesday, Paker, who declined to be interviewed for this article, laid into Radiolab for presenting an incomplete view of the story.

"It's bizarre that this podcast never mentioned that he was Ailee's ex-boyfriend," Parker wrote. "It's weird that they never mentioned that he admitted to looking to sell Dispatch the photos (even if he says he didn't leak them to allkpop)."

Though Lee gave the affect to admit in an on-air telephone outcry to the Seoul Broadcasting Gadget programme "One Evening of Television Entertainment" that he did if fact exist told inquire about promoting the nude photos to Dispatch, he claimed he was the truth iswanting to lend a hand Ailee she was allegedly tricked into posing nude for what she was told was a modeling audition.

"Because we had a tip from other folks alongside that more or lessfunction to sell Ailee's nude photos to the tabloid in mind, I just trulysought afterto peer if it was conceivable and I innocently asked. I had no other intention," Lee acknowledged in the 2013 interview.

The allkpop executive maintains he didn'tsupply his employers with the disclosing images.

"A false impressiontook place and I may bein a position tobestmake an apology more or less it," Lee said. "But what I would like to say is that I did not leak the photos."

For an allkpop reader commenting in a 2013 forum on the web contentbeneath the name Krevice, Lee's admission provoked more questions than answers.

"I too wonder about...this newest news that Daniel Lee made that phone call to Dispatch News, faking an be offering of the Ailee nude pics for money," Krevice wrote in a forum post on the website from quickly subsequently the incident.

"I wonder whetherany individualrunning at allkpop knew that Daniel Lee was going to make that phone call? Were there any discussions between allkpop staffas to if this was an okconceptahead of Daniel Lee doing that?"

The user has since been banned from commenting on the allkpop website, but the questions Krevice raised did obtain a reaction from a commenter named Ace, claiming to be a former allkpop moderator.

"From what I been told by ex-allkpop team of workers is that allkpop has not lied referring to being the leaker," Ace wrote. "They also have evidence for all in their claims. It was a dumb go by Daniel though to check the evidence out. However, all and sundry makes mistakes."

Following the incident, 6Theory rushed to factor a remarksaying Lee's innocence, putting forward that it whomever posted the X-rated pictureswerethe use of a Canadian IP cope with and that Ailee's checklist label YMC Entertainment was unfairly jumping to conclusions when they accused the site of misconduct.

"For complete disclosure, our employee, Daniel Lee did date Ailee in the past, however he did not post the photos in question," the statement read. "Not knowing whom the real culprit was, YMC grew to become the blame to the perfect target.

According to the court of public opinion though, it wasn't adequate according to the Radiolab piece, entitled "K-poparazzi."

"Really, their recognition merely tanks. It was a caution to them from K-pop fans 'don't mess with us.'" Park said in the podcast, concerning allkpop's backlash for publishing the nude photos of Ailee. "I mean I have not really followed them in a while, but they haven't recovered since then."

For Beyond Hallyu's editor, the irony of having Park remark on the legitimacy of her biggest competitor as a US-based Korean entertainment site that generated the Radiolab report's biggest credibility gap.

"The maximumfantastic moment was when a substantialbite of the tale about the backlash opposed to allkpop was told by the editor of Soompi, as though she had no stake in sharing the story of the site's intended downfall," Parker wrote.

"And the most frustrating phase is it isn't true. Up to 1 hate to mention it, allkpop has most commonly recovered."

Allkpop is lately the fourth result that looks in a Google seek of the term "kpop."

Radiolab's manufacturers and allkpop's editorial body of workersmay not straight away be reached for comment.

As interest on the alleged topless picture continued to grow, Yoon Kye Sang and Honey Lee’s agency, Saram Entertainment told Newsen“The alleged claims that Honey Lee is topless in the photo that is being shared on online communities is not real. Yoon Kye Sang initially uploaded the picture on his fan cafe, but deleted it after he realized that there was room for misunderstanding. It is not a nude picture and the picture was maliciously edited. Honey Lee uploaded the picture on her SNS and than deleted it as well. It’s a shame that the picture is being shared as a nude picture.”

Netizens had initially defended the two when the initial article about the picture was posted.

[+ 2285, – 149] If it really was a nude picture they might feel embarrassed but there is not moral issue here is there? They’re lovers and both old enough to get married.

[+ 1007, – 88] It would be odd for Honey Lee to be naked by herself ㅋㅋㅋ Yoon Kye Sang is wearing a thick hoodie. I think she’s wearing a tank top.

However, Saram Entertainment’s statement seemed to instigate criticism from the netizens.

[+ 727, – 168] What editing, this is just a screenshot of what he uploaded himself. Ferguson was right that SNS proves that people can be idiots.

Yoon Kye Sang: “Me and Honey Lee Are In No Hurry to Marry”

Responding to the interest of people, the actor said, “We are slightly careful. She [Honey Lee] is currently enjoying great success, and I don’t want to disturb her.

Her age is good as well, and I hope she will pursue as many activities as possible.”

Honey Lee reveals boyfriend Yoon Kye Sang

On August 29, Honey Lee met up with members of the media at a cafe in Seoul for an interview and talked about her boyfriend, Yoon Kye Sang, and his reaction to her love scenes with T.O.P for movie, "Tazza 2."

She revealed, "He was not jealous at all. I think being an actress means there are things you need to forego. The human nature of men is to dislike anyone looking at their women, so it could be difficult enduring the fact that everyone is watching through the screen. The job of being an actress means everyone is your lover, which can be painful, but that makes it beautiful, too.

Personally, I put a lot of things aside. When actors date one another, there are things you need to make allowances for. If you start bothering each other about such matters, there is no end. Whatever work we"re doing, we are understanding of each other in such a manner."

The movie will be out in theaters on September 3!
