Members of Korean far-right online community site “Ilbe” filed a complaint against 2PM member Chansung with the National Election Commission, claiming that he violated an election law soon after casting his ballot for the local elections on Wednesday.
After voting at a polling station, Chansung posted a picture of himself holding up a “V” sign, showing his exercise of voting rights.
However, some of the “Ilbe” site members accused him of violating the election law, insisting that such a pose is tantamount to supporting a particular candidate. The “V” sign can be used to indicate the number “2,” which could have referred to the number two candidate listed on the electoral sheet.
Chansung quickly apologized for his behavior and erased the post, altering it with a new post of another picture without “V” pose.
