Yesterday, public opinion everywhere was stirred by the news that Lee Soo Man gave a luxury apartment worth 5 billion won to a 52-year-old female reporter.
After that, many news sites in Korea have further investigated this news. There have been rumors that the woman given the luxury apartment by Lee Soo Man is the girlfriend of the SM Entertainment founder, and the couple is also said to be living together now. According to an exclusive report from Seoul Economy News, Lee Soo Man is currently living with his reporter girlfriend in a luxury apartment in Cheongdam-dong, Seoul.
Most notably, there are also rumors that Lee Soo Man’s girlfriend is Giselle’s aunt (aespa). This makes Giselle become the center of attention by Korean Netizen. Due to the rumor, a part of Korean netizens suspect that the real reason why Giselle got to debut so early was due to her alleged “Aunt” relationship with Lee Soo Man. Since debut, Giselle has been the target of criticism by Korean Netizen when her training time was too short (11 months), and people compared her to others former trainee of SM. Thankfully, some netizen step up to defend the Aespa member from hurtful comments.
“Don’t tell me the girlfriend asked Lee Soo Man to debut her niece when she doesn’t even deserve to debut?”
“What do fans know about the reason for her debut… Of course fans have to praise their bias… But the thing that gives me goosebumps the most is the luxurious apartment that Giselle’s aunt’s aunt I got it from Lee Soo Man.”
“The golden face in the village reincarnated… It only took 100 days of practice to get into the debut team ㅋㅋ Is it different to be born at the finish line ㅋㅋㅋ I feel sorry for the trainees who left”
“I heard that Giselle’s aunt is dating Lee Soo Man ㅋㅋ”
“But seriously, how did she debut as soon as she entered SM? Her face isn’t too pretty, her ability isn’t that great either…”
“It’s just a rumor spread by the press, it’s not confirmed so why many people jump to mock Giselle?”
“Special treatment from the aunt who dated Lee Soo Man ㅋㅋㅋㅋ SM’s casting process is really problematic”
“Let my relative debut without wasting 8 years of training and ruining a kid dream who came from another country to Korea as a trainee ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ Hina has fans waiting for her debut. She’s also very talented, originally a main dancer but sings very well, according to other trainees, Hina’s dancing ability is on top, but Hina was dropped from the lineup right before debut because of someone who trained less than a year, both dancing and singing are mediocre… Not to mention giving Giselle the position of rapper while Karina raps better..
“So that means she got into the debut lineup because of her aunt’s backing? And that’s why they kicked an all-rounder like Hina out of the debut group ㅠ”
“But are you saying that Lee Soo Man’s girlfriend asked him to debut her while she wasn’t even worth debuting? It’s a business so I can understand they want to look in long term but to be honest, they’re 4 of them so don’t think it was a package deal”
