DKZ Agency Explains Member Kyoungyoon’s Parents’ JMS Religion Controversy – KpopNews
According to boy band agency DKZ, member Kyoungyoon’s parents are unaware of the controversy surrounding their religious group.
On the 7th, Dongyo Entertainment, the agency of boy band DKZ, commented on the rumor that “Kyoungyoon’s parents believe in JMS and run a similar cafe” through its official fan cafe.
JMS here refers to a new religion founded in 1978 by Jeong Myeong Seok and mentioned in the Netflix documentary In the Name of God: A Holy Betrayal. According to this film, Jeong Myeong Seok has been involved in various sex crimes and JMS looks like a cult.
Below is the full text regarding Kyoungyoon’s parents’ religion controversy:
“First of all, we would like to apologize to everyone who felt uncomfortable with what was posted in the community today.
We asked our artist, member of DKZ Kyoungyoon, about the company his family runs, in relation to the rumors circulating on social media and the web. As a result of our investigation, Kyungyoon believed his parents attended a regular church until many people reported it and until the show’s content was confirmed.
Upon learning of the controversy, Kyoungyoon was shocked. He has since confirmed the content of the show and his parents’ business has gone out of business. We have also reviewed all parts related to a specific organization and want to clarify that there will be no connection (with JMS).
Since Kyongyoon receives a lot of love from many, he is sorry that he has not properly dealt with the matters that concern him. While ignorance cannot be an excuse, our artist has no intention of championing the interests or crimes of any particular group. Please refrain from exaggerated speculation or comments.
We apologize once again to everyone who has felt uncomfortable in this situation and we will also support our artist so that he can grow into a person who can be more mindful of everything that affects him and his environment.
