ZE:A Lee Hoo threatens to retire from the group over upset fan
ZE:A’s Lee Hoo was upset by a fan on Twitter last night and threatened to leave the group unless she apologised.
It is not clear what he was upset over as both the fan and Lee Hoo have since deleted their tweets.
It first began when Lee Hoo said he would take responsibility for fellow member Taeheon, who is currently being treated for a fractured nose after a wrestling match.
“I can’t sleep. I’m very sorry. I’m sorry on behalf of ZE:A as the leader. Today is Tae Heon’s surgery day. It’s not a major surgery, just only a fitting nasal bone, so you shouldn’t be worried too much. If anything goes wrong, I’ll take all the responsibility. I’ll disband the group and take care of Tae Heon at all costs,”
He later tweeted out saying that he was lonely, which made his other fans worried.
“This is the situation. I’m very lonely, I want to give up on everything. I’ll show you the professional image. Please have faith in me,”
Lee Hoo then promised fans that he would show them everything he had at ZE:A’s fan meet in Tokyo on September 15, protesting that the fan that had upset him should come and watch.
“Today, during the second show in Tokyo, I’ll show you everything I have. If I didn’t have the status to be the leader, I won’t do that anymore. I won’t sing or compose music either. The person who commented, please come hear my song and feel my love. I’ll try my best to sing and dance. Everyone, I’m so sorry.
I’ll say all the things that is left unsaid. Please come. If you come and don’t say anything, I’ll sue you. Please show me your love. Say sorry to my members and my fans and I will forgive you.
Everybody, please remember that today is the last day I will be on stage with ZE:A’s name. Please come and support me.”
I don’t want to hurt the ZE:A members. My heart really ached. Everybody is in hardship but still tried to show us a better image, you’ve wanted to be a group which is well-known and widely-loved, but you seemed to have emotionally overreacted.
Lee Hoo then later retweeted the fan who upset him.
I don’t want to hurt anyone, seeing Lee Hoo’s tweets brought tears to my eyes. ZE:A, fans and Lee Hoo oppa also, I’m really sorry.
I hope that ZE:A will be more united to reach the top. I hope you all will show everyone a wonderful image.
I hope Taeheon oppa will soon recover. A lot of people asked if I’m a fan too – and yes, I am. I won’t be so reckless anymore. I’ll support you wholeheartedly until the end.
I heard the news that your fan meet wrapped up wonderfully. Sorry that I made ZE:A’s leader Lee Hoo sad. During hard times, you tweeted in order for fans to understand you, I feel like I have failed as a fan.
ZE:A’s Lee Hoo then later responded to the fan and thanked her and other fans for protecting his position in the group.
What could the feud be about?
