Beauty creator and influencer Song Ji A blew up quickly with her appearance in Netflix’s Single’s Inferno. However, just as quickly as her star rose, it also plummeted overnight. Song Ji A admitted to having used fake luxury products and eventually made all of her YouTube videos and Instagram posts private, except for her apology posts. Through an apology video, she acknowledged her faults. However, the public was not quelled.
A video on YouTube went viral after a famous reporter claimed to know Song Ji A’s father’s true job. Netizens had previously speculated that her father is a dentist and Song Ji A had never denied the rumors as it was beneficial to her rich girl image. The reporter then declined to name her father’s real job to give Song Ji A a chance to come clean.
But things went south when another YouTuber, Sojang, decided to expose more allegations about Song Ji A. Netizens had been buzzing that Song Ji A’s father had worked as a waiter for a brothel, then moved up the ladder to become the CEO of a large scale brothel in Busan. Largely called “room salon” in Korea, these room salons operate like high-scale brothels. Women are called into a private room and the male clients are able to have their pick on who they want to “entertain” them. After some drinks at the room salon, they often move to a nearby venue to engage in intimate acts.
Sojang gathered alleged intel from netizens that claimed that some brothel girls had recognized Song Ji A’s father when she had uploaded his photograph on her social media.
What do you mean dentist… Previously, a photo of her dad came up on an internet community and some of the brothel ladies recognized him. He is someone that manages the ladies in a room salon in Busan. He’s now an owner of a room salon. I didn’t want to expose her here but her shinyeos (derogatory term for fans) were acting up by calling her a golden-spoon. I hated seeing that so I’m saying it now.

The highest liked comment on the video also continued to make more allegations against her father. The comment was pinned by Sojang.
Song Hyun Ji’s (Song Ji A’s real name) father is the CEO of Haeundae The Grand Room Salon. He used to be the CEO of Sinsegye Room Salon at Seomyeon station but he sold it to his acquaintance and now owns one at Haeundae.

The video also further noted that she had waited until January 24, 2022 to private her videos. According to Sojang, the date appears to be significant as it’s soon after YouTube’s monthly payout. Netizens were quick to note that it took her 8 days to take down her videos, thus accusing her of waiting to get paid before taking them down.
Regarding both accusations, Song Ji A’s agency was contacted by OSEN. They simply made the short statement, claiming, “We have nothing to say about both matters at this time.”
Song Ji A has also not personally spoken out. Stay tuned for more updates on the situation.
