Two videos of CNBLUE’s Lee Jonghyun allegedly touching female idols inappropriately have recently resurfaced.
The first video that has been receiving a lot of attention is from the 2015 KBS Gayo Daechukje. In the video, Lee Jonghyun can be seen walking behind the members of Girls’ Generation before colliding with Yoona later. Fans believe that he touched Yoona’s butt based on his hand placement, the movement of her skirt, and Yoona’s own reaction after their collision.
In the second video at a different event a few years later, he allegedly tried to sexually harass a member of AOA by touching her chest. Although no face can be seen or the exact build of the person who touched the AOA member is known, netizens think they’ve matched up specific accessories he wore at the same event to the person who touched her.
Netizens also took a look back at his reactions to BLACKPINK at the 2017 Golden Disc Awards where he continued to call BLACKPINk ” very pretty” especially when Jennie would appear on the screen.
The two videos, along with the BLACKPINK reaction, originally gained attention after chats logs between Lee Jonghyun and Jung Joon Young discussing having sex with girls were revealed.

Since the videos resurfaced, MBN released the identities of the 8 members of the hidden camera chatroom and Lee Jonghyun was not one of them. Despite not being involved in the chatroom, he did admit to watching illegally filmed videos. Currently, Jonghyun is giving his full cooperation to the police.
