For her controversy about her behavior, one of the personnel Red Velvet, Irene apologized.
Although she just apologized, netizens still continue to speculate and brought up a recent incident that may have been the start of it all.
As we know, on October 18, 2020, Red Velvet was part of the performance lineup for the Gangnam K-Pop Festival. During their performance, Irene’s transmitter fell off at the start of a performance and she had to carry it for the remainder of the performance.
The netizens claim that as an artist, it is imperative for their equipment to be properly secure during a performance because it could ruin the stage or injure someone.
Then, in the Yeongdongdaero K-POP concert 2018, Irene had to change her outfit twice. And this was the first incident, and she changed it for some reason.
Until now, SM Entertainment and the stylist has not released any further details on what sparked the controversy.
