Controversies:

MBC Conflict

A time-slot problem occurred between SM Entertainment and MBC when SM wanted Kangin to stay on SBS’s EHB instead of MBC Sunday Sunday Night Dong-An Club, where Kangin was a regular host. MBC temporarily banned Super Junior from any future performances on MBC, and Kangin was replaced by other Korean artists. Later on, MBC announced that they invited Super Junior to film an exclusive MBC segment, “Giving Children a New Life” despite their r previous decision to ban Super Junior.

Assault Case

Kangin was arrested for his involvement in a fight between 2 men that took place outside of a bar. An eye-witness reported that 2 men entered a room where Kangin and his friend was at, and began arguing. Kangin left the bar, but the 2 men followed him outside and began to display acts of violence. Another report stated that Kangin tried to stop the fight. A nearby surveillance camera caught the fight, and Kangin was brought into interrogation and investigation. It was proven that Kangin only reacted for self defence. After all of Kangin’s future schedules became temporarily postponed and as a result, he left and did his mandatory 2 years of military service.

DUI Hit & Run
Kangin collided into a parked taxi and left the scene of the accident. Kangin turned himself in, to the police 5 hours later. He had a blood alcohol content of 0.0082%. It was recorded as a hit and run, despite Kangin turning himself in. He failed to show up at the police station on the same day for further investigation and had to be called in. SM Entertainment and Kangin released an official apology shortly after, and all of Kangin’s activities were canceled until the end of the year.

  1. what is an ARH sound ??????????????

  2. I DON’T WANT TO JUDGE KANGIN BUT BASE ON THE ARTICLE, HE EASILY GETS INTO TROUBLE WHICH IS NOT REALLY A GOOD FACTOR OF BEING A CELEBRITY AND HE SHOULD AVOID THESE THINGS. ANYWAY, HE ALREADY RETURNED FROM THE MILLITARY SERVICE, SO I HOPE HE’LL BE BETTER THIS TIME. I’M JUST GLAD THAT HE IS ALREADY ACTIVE WITH SUPER JUNIOR.
