Fan Sheds Light On NAM JOO-HYUK's Photos At Issue
Gia Allana, the photographer who took Nam Joo-Hyuk's photos with marks on his arm that are currently making rounds online, reached out to MYX to clarify that the South Korean actor already had the scratches even before the Meet-And-Greet session.
On Facebook, Allana shared a photo of Joo-Hyuk taken right after he and Sandara Park were introduced on stage at the FanCon event of a local clothing brand.
"Hi, everyone! Since the photos that are currently circulating online saying that NJH got his scratches after the M&G are from my album, would like to make it clear that those photos were taken before the M&G. This one was actually taken a minute or two after they first went on stage. We also don't know if those are scratches, wounds, or bug bites," she wrote.
"But, yes, hoping that he wasn't scratched or hurt after the M&G also. And also hoping that everyone can learn from the experience, knowing that NJH is also a human being capable of getting hurt. Let's all be careful and kinder next time, shall we? And also try to follow the rules and limits set by the organizers (no touching, etc.) So everyone can have a good time before, during, and even after the event," she added.
Then again, she stressed out that she is not defending the actions of the girls who clearly made Joo-Hyuk feel uncomfortable on stage during the Meet-And-Greet.
"I am also not defending the girls. I, too, was disappointed with what happened, as I saw it firsthand. But the photos being used as an example are taken me. And I felt the need to clear things up. It's really sad that this had to happen, but adding fuel to fire doesn't seem right, too," she stated.
