The fraud scandal involving Microdot’s parents has brought light to similar scandals of other celebrities, some of whom include iKON’s B.I, actresses Lee Yu Bi and Lee Da In, and television personality Kim Na Young.

These celebrities have recently been correlated with the term “stolen spoon”, rather than “silver spoon”, due to the fraud scandals their family members were involved in.

Microdot’s parents were recently accused of stealing almost $2 million USD from their acquaintances and the rapper has withdrawn from all of his broadcasts as a result.

Another celebrity who has been involved in a similar scandal is iKON’s B.I. The idol had been known to come from a wealthy family since his days on the hip-hop survival program, Show Me the Money.

Before iKON’s debut in 2014, however, B.I’s father was charged on suspicion of embezzling 2.4 billion KRW ($2.1 million USD) from his company. He and an accomplice raised 1.8 billion KRW ($1.6 million USD) from investors by making fraudulent company statements and shared 2.4 billion KRW ($2.1 million USD) for personal expenses.

When many people first here GOT7 BamBam‘s name they assume it’s just his stage name, but in reality, it’s his real name! As every Aghase knows, BamBam has two names, Kunpimook Bhuwakul and the shorter BamBam.

This isn’t all that uncommon in Thailand as parents generally give their children two names because the names are always so long.

BamBam’s siblings’ names are so long that even he has had trouble remembering them! Fans first learned of this during an episode of Knowing Brothers, when BamBam revealed he struggled with memorizing his oldest brother’s full name.

“Honestly, it’s too long. I can’t memorize it. It’s even longer than mine! But, he has a short name as well, it’s Beer.”

— BamBam

So to put it to the test, when GOT7 appeared on Idol Room Defconnand Jung Hyung Don proposed a special challenge for the idol. While each of the members had to face their own unique challenge to move onto the weird showcase, BamBam was tasked with correctly saying his siblings’ full names.

SM Entertainment is known for having some of the best visuals. Every group seems to be made up of stunning individuals and Red Velvet is no exception. The girls have captured hearts with their music and their extreme beauty.

While we all know how beautiful they are with makeup on, it may come as a surprise that they are equally gorgeous without makeup on. Seriously, do these girls even have flaws?

Irene is the official visual of the group and her perfect looks have always amazed fans. When she wears makeup it’s always just the right amount to highlight her stunning features.


This idol brings some joy with her lovely looks. She’s most likely to change up her lip color and every color seems to suit her cupid’s bow lips. No wonder she’s called Joy!


Each member has their own unique style and beauty. Wendy likes to play with her eye-makeup to draw attention to her dazzling eyes. Her particular beauty leaves fans breathless.

The photo showed the idol singing “Kimigayo” (the Japanese national anthem) wearing a costume with the rising sun flag at the Yasukuni Shrine during her promotions with AKB48.

After seeing the photos, the public began requesting that IZ*ONE be banned from appearing on numerous broadcasting stations including KBS and a Blue House petition was even filed in regards to the issue.

“Please ban the right-wing Japanese group IZ*ONE from appearing on public broadcasting

On November 22, Music Bank responded to the post from KBS’ Viewer Rights Center website titled, “We request that the group IZ*ONE, which was produced by a right-wing producer and has a right-wing member, be banned from appearing [on the show].”

“In regard to matters of IZ*ONE, we have not been notified by the Review Board of any guidelines on their appearance or regulations and in terms of the songs to be broadcast, all songs excluding ‘Your in Love, Right?’, which is written entirely in Japanese, has been qualified as ‘appropriate for broadcasting’. None of the performers of Music Bank including the group in question are on the ‘Restricted Persons List’ set by the Review Board.”

They added that they do not deem it appropriate to regulate the appearance of certain performers without clear regulatory basis and guidelines.

“We do not believe it is appropriate to regulate the appearance of specific performers based on the arbitrary decision of the program staff without clear regulatory basis and guidelines on the music and cast.”
