Protest trucks and Japanese fans came together to show their support for Seunghan. Seunghan was previously embroiled in a series of scandals surrounding his private life, which began shortly after his RIIZE debut.
Photos of Seunghan and his ex-girlfriend visiting a hotel in the past went viral, which ignited the first controversy. Seunghan was already embroiled in controversy due to the hotel scandal, but he came under even more fire when a private social media live-streaming video of him smoking on the streets and other footage of him were leaked.

Finally, SM Entertainment announced that Seunghan would be taking an indefinite hiatus as the controversy and fan discontent grew. People on the internet began to believe that Seunghan had been fired from the group after SM Entertainment’s official announcement. The recent promotional materials for the group prominently omitted Seunghan’s name and images, which led to the rumor’s traction. In addition, the six-person group RIIZE has been keeping up with their engagements.
