After being suspected as the idol accused of sexual assault, WM Entertainment has confirmed B1A4‘s Sandeul is not the perpetrator.
A report about the idol in question came out, although he was not named, it was revealed that he is a vocalist who debuted in the early 2010’s.
When looking for idols who fit this profile, netizens began to accuse Sandeul and left nasty comments against him, which led to WM Entertainment releasing a statement.
“It is certainly not our company’s artist. I hope that this [false accusation] doesn’t happen to other victims, like us, with no relation [to the case]. To protect the artist, we will be taking strict legal action against false rumours.” — WM Entertainment
What’s even stranger than the levelling of accusations and hate against Sandeul without any evidence, is that he and B1A4 didn’t even debut until April, 2011.
Perhaps netizens will think twice in the future before throwing baseless accusations around.
