One of the popular K-Pop member, TWICE’s Chaeyoung phone number got leaked online & she was flooded with text & calls from random persons.
Chaeyoung took the channel of Instagram to express her sadness over this leak. Mentioned below are the words from her post which she captioned.
“I think I’ve reached my limit of silently waiting for people to step back and waiting for the right time.
The moment those 11 seemingly random numbers were posted on the internet by an individual with no consideration or respect, my phone was flooded with calls and text messages, and I am going through things I shouldn’t have to go through. These problems not only happen to me, but to my precious members, and many other idols in our agency.
I ask for you to think, even just for a moment, about how your calls and actions, which you don’t put much thought into other than to package them and say that it’s interest and love, make so many people feel fatigued, nervous, and worn out.
And don’t let your neat little packaging bring a bad name to the fans who send their interest, support, and love to us in the right, healthy way.
I am not a person who is easily shaken by issues like this. I am not writing this because I am unable to hold back my anger. I just wanted to make sure that I properly got across that this wrong. That this is something to be ashamed.”
