HyunA Continues To Lose Followers After Revealing Relationship With Yong Jun Hyung

“She literally threw away her morality.”

Over the last week and a half or so, HyunA has been drawing a lot of attention — mostly negative — after announcing her relationship with former HIGHLIGHT member Yong Jun Hyung. Jun Hyung is infamously known for being involved in the Burning Sun Scandal, particularly by receiving explicit videos from Jung Joon Young in an illegal sex video group chat of women without their consent.

K-Pop fans have been shocked that HyunA, who has often been considered a feminist icon in the industry, would become romantically involved with an admitted sex offender, and it has led to a quick and massive hit to her popularity. Fan clubs for the soloist have been closing, and the impact has been evident on her personal social media pages.

Previously, it had been noted that HyunA lost about 100,000 followers on Instagram in the first day or so following the dating announcement. She had started with 18.4 million followers, and dropped to 18.3 million.

At this time, however, her followers have continued to decrease by a considerable amount. It’s reported that she has lost about 220,000 followers at this time, dropping her follower count to 18.2 million. While this might not seem like a significant amount, some netizens believe that many of her followers are bots, since her posts tend to only receive between 100,000 to 400,000 likes.

It’s highly possible that this trend of losing followers will continue, since HyunA hasn’t addressed the controversy surrounding her new relationship.

Here’s how netizens are reacting to the news of her recent follower loss, shared on an online forum post about the subject.

Needless to say, many people are disappointed in HyunA and have had their entire perception of her changed in a negative way.
