Red Velvet‘s Irene just apologized for her recent controversy regarding her past behavior, but netizens continue to speculate as they brought up a recent incident that they claim may have been the start of it all.
On October 18, Red Velvet was part of the performance lineup for the Gangnam K-Pop Festival. During their performance, Irene’s transmitter fell off at the start of a performance and she had to carry it the remainder of the performance.
As an artist, it is imperative for their equipment to be properly secure during a performance, or else it could ruin the stage – or worse, injure someone.
Seeing that Irene has rarely had an outfit or performance error, she may have been frustrated that her transmitter fell out so early into a performance. The incident forced her to modify how she performed her choreography on the spot.
Netizens speculated that just like any other profession, if someone didn’t do their job properly, they would be scolded for their faults. Considering how quickly the transmitter fell out, the likelihood of an improper sewing job was high.
Given the timing of the stage mishap and the uploading of the post, there is growing speculation that these events are connected. Especially since it was noted that Irene also had to have a last-minute outfit change before her performance.
To clear it up.
