Former Highlight Member, Yong Junhyung Makes First Instagram Post Since His Chatroom Controversy
Former Highlight member, Yong Junhyung has returned to social media.
On February 27th, Yong Junhyung made his first Instagram post since 2019. With two black and white photos, the former Highlight member marked his social media return. The first photo provides a bird’s eye view, showing off the former boy group member’s tattooed finger and Nike sneakers.
The second photo shows off a bubble wrapped keyboard, further creating mystery behind Yong Junhyung’s uploads.
This is the former Highlight member’s first social media update since his chatroom controversy. Yong Junhyung was formerly accused of taking part in Jung Joon Young‘s group chatroom, where illegally obtained footage and sexually explicit images were shared amongst the chatroom users without the victims’ consents. These chatrooms were later unveiled to be a part of The Burning Sun Scandal.
Following his accusation, it was revealed that Yong Junhyung’s portion in the group chatroom was edited. Just a few days later, however, he announced his departure from Highlight after admitting to watching the sexually explicit videos that Jung Joon Young sent him in an individual chatroom. He also admitted to taking part in inappropriate conversations about the content from the chatrooms. Since his departure, the former Highlight member has stayed out of the spotlight and remained silent on his social media accounts, until now.
While the rapper announced his departure from his former group after the scandal went public, Yong Junhyung didn’t mention anything about his retirement from the industry. Could his recently uploaded Instagram posts be an indicator of his return? We can only wait to find out.
