On October 14, an anonymous person with Twitter ID @oAKjan3BvAJjqld posted videos, audio, screenshots, and a lengthy statement alleging that ONEUS’ Ravn cheated on her and gaslit her.
The alleged ex-girlfriend claimed that they first met in 2020 in Japan and that they got intimate after he made her consume alcohol. She also accused him of cheating on her with other Japanese and Korean women. One Korean woman, with the initials LHY, was named continuously in the alleged ex-girlfriend’s letter.
The alleged ex-girlfriend also claimed that ONEUS’ Ravn was not on a health hiatus, as stated by the agency right after the group’s debut in 2019. She alleged that everyone involved with Ravn knew about his issues with women and that the company had confiscated his phone during that period.
In an excerpt from the statement, the anonymous person said,
“You know, people actually know all about how you couldn’t participate in group promotions right after you debuted because you had problems with the women in your life. Remember how you didn’t have a cellphone, so you wrote Naver emails using your iPad?”
RBW Entertainment reported Ravn’s health hiatus in March 2019. He then resumed group activities in May of the same year.
Fans criticized the agency for sweeping the issue under the rug and lying about the allegations. They left no room to express their anger over the protection Ravn received in the past.
