Rappers BewhY and Khundi Panda recently faced controversy for their rude behavior on KBS Cool FM‘s Kiss The Radio hosted by DAY6‘s Young K, and they released formal apologies only to take even more heat for copy and pasting the same draft.
Meanwhile, BewhY revealed that he’ll be taking strong legal action against netizens who have been attacking him with malicious comments.
But according to a representative of BewhY’s agency, Dejavu Group, while BewhY feels apologetic for using slang and is aware of his wrongdoings, he’s having a difficult time dealing with what the representative believes is an undeserved backlash.
The representative stressed that over 150 articles were published focusing on the rappers’ behavior when the full clip of the interview had yet to be released, leading to an overwhelming amount of malicious comments.
Furthermore, the representative expressed that they believe the controversy BewhY faced for calling out RPS Fan Fiction Perversion was the true reason behind the hate.
And he explained just how much BewhY has been suffering as a result.
This wasn’t the first time BewhY went on radio, and he acted the way he always has. So I wondered if people were giving him all this hate because of the petition he posted about RPS fan fiction perversion.

BewhY reportedly even had extreme thoughts when his family came under attack as well.
BewhY vented to our agency saying it was really difficult, and he asked if he should just die. He accepted the hate, but when he and his family were asked to die, it must’ve been too much.

According to the representative, BewhY hadn’t slept for 3 days, and he won’t be making any more radio or TV appearances.
On Kiss The Radio, BewhY jokingly said the slang phrase, “You’re doing fricking good” multiple times, which triggered the online attack.
And whatever the initial cause may have been, the hate against BewhY only escalated when he posted a formal apology that was the same as that posted by his agency, Dejavu Group.
