Fans deny the allegation that SEVENTEEN’s DK texted during the video call to Kpop News
SEVENTEENIt is NSP recently became part of a controversy when a fan accused the idol of texting during their video call. The situation has divided netizens, with some surprised by his shocking behavior while others say DK has done nothing wrong. However, Carats was quick to prove that DK wasn’t the one texting during the video call.
The recording of the video call, posted on Weibo, made the rounds on online platforms yesterday. The fan also posted on Weibo explaining the situation and what led them to believe that DK was texting during their video call.
“Although I’ve seen a lot of posts about your bandmates over the last few days, I was sure that this wouldn’t happen to you. ‘Cause I really trust you, and I’ve told all my friends that you’re the best of all the ones I’ve banned.
Today when another fan told me that it looked like I was placed on the small window during the video call with you, I zoomed in for the first time to see the reflection on your glasses. Because I wanted to find proof that you didn’t turn me to that little window and disprove it.
The result? I saw something even more explosive… It turns out that while you were listening to me, according to what can be seen in the reflection, you texted someone for at least less than 30 seconds. Ironically, I asked if you had your phone with you and asked if we could take a selfie. The reflection showed you pushing away your phone and saying “sorry no”.
I can understand it might be your agency rules but although you are not allowed to take selfies, are you allowed to play on your phone?
I’ve tried to give you a reasonable explanation. I wondered if I wasn’t pretty enough, maybe my Korean wasn’t good enough, maybe not as funny as other fans. But I can’t think of anything that’s urgent enough for you to respond during the fan sign. Why couldn’t you wait even 2 minutes? I don’t know how to feel now.
The happiness you have given me is not fake, but the shock I am in right now is real too. I don’t know if I should leave the fandom. It is so sad. Even in this situation, it seems like I can’t be relentless and stop loving you.“
Another fan shared a snap of the shot on Twitter – where many gave their opinions on the matter.

Some sided with the fan and said they spent a lot of money to talk to DK for a minute and that “there is zero tolerance for this behavior.
Well, you spent a lot of money just to talk to him for a minute. I kind of understand them https://t.co/t66DMpwBxY

For those of you who don’t know, this isn’t the only fan who caught him texting during this fancall. Fans spend thousands of dollars on a 2 minute call, there is no tolerance for this behavior. https://t.co/gzlbMda9WX

Carats, on the other hand, said the fan was exaggerating. Many joked that DK was texting them, and others speculated that something big was going on that required him to text.

I think it’s something important when dk, who is known to be observant during fs, needs to be on the phone during fs. Or maybe he used a translator because he was talking to a C fan, right?

One fan even shared his own video call experience while on his phone, telling DK “was patient as an honest man.”
and here I am doing the exact same thing to him while he is patient like a decent human https://t.co/036PHLyDt3 pic.twitter.com/NLl1eMYzX3

After some time, Carats was able to find evidence that DK wasn’t the one texting during the video call, suggesting the reflection was from someone else.
Isn’t it Lee Do-gyeom texting haha?
Both hands are raised in this video, but it looks the same as writing through the glasses
I hope you not only watch this but also watch this video https://t.co/nDKNEkV00s pic.twitter.com/X2aE7krvGy

DK is not the one texting LMAO. You can see in this video how he has both hands in the camera frame, but his glasses show the same reflection as someone texting. Stop believing the other video and check out this clip too.
