Wonder Girls Like Money
Taiwanese media outlet NOWnews reported, "There"s a homeless man on the streets of Nanchang, Jiangxi, China that uses Girls" Generation"s Seohyun"s graduation photo on a sign and puts on a serious expression to beg for money." On the poster, the homeless man claims that his "wife" died in a fire 2 years ago and that he suffered extreme injuries. He adds that he"s begging in order to feed their daughter and his family.
The news spread online with netizens having mixed reactions. Though many fans found the entire thing hilarious and ridiculous, there were also those who were angry that Seohyun"s image was being used in this manner.
It was previously revealed in the past that during her long-term hiatus, Ivy had written the lyrics to Girls' Generation's "Dear Mom" and SHINee's "Last Gift," both tracks popular among fans for their heartfelt lyrics.
MC Han Seokjun said to Ivy, "I heard you've worked as a songwriter," to which she replied, "It's been a hot topic lately that I've written lyrics to songs under a pseudonym."
She continues, "I deliberately used a pseudonym and donated 100% of my royalties. However, the artists I wrote the songs for were global artists, so I received a large amount of royalties. I didn't expect it to be that much."
