TVXQ’s Yunho in Scandal After Being Detained by Police Breaking COVID-19 Curfew at an Adult Drinking Establishment

Hooboy, it’s always about the denials and deflections that come back to bite you. A sorta non-story last week was news that TVXQ‘s squeaky clean image Yunho was detained by police for breaking COVID-19 curfew (10 pm) at a restaurant. He posted an apology to his fans and everyone thought it was no biggie, Yunho was out with two friends and the trio must’ve been eating and drinking and lost track of time. A week later all hell has broken loose after MBC news ran an exclusive expose that revealed: Yunho was at an adult drinking establishment (i.e. a place where ladies drink with you and then do more if you pay for it) that was unmarked and in a high rise building and required a reservation to get in (i.e. it’s super shady and covert place), and when cops busted it Yunho’s two friends fought with the cops to help Yunho run away without being detained as he was a famous person. Okay, so this is spilling some major tea MBC! I can imagine how some PD found Yunho’s “apology” full of crap and went “hold my beer!” and did some digging. When MBC reporter went undercover at the drinking establishment, they found rooms and ladies in the hallway and was told a reservation was needed to go inside. SM Entertainment has released a statement that denied Yunho ran away from police, and explained Yunho went to that “place” which was owned by his friend to “talk” (okay Jan lolololol), he didn’t know what that place was (you’re killing me, SM!) and there were no female employees of that place in the room they were talking in (seriously, I’m dying here……). K-netziens went from praising Yunho for coming clean for a simple curfew violation (good boy!) to completely disappointed and angry that one of the few clean image stars in K-ent has too shown his real colors. Me too, honestly I’m not castigating him for going to an adult joint since it’s totally consensual transaction but trying to keep his good boy image at all costs is douchey.
