MissA member Suzy was mired in controversy over an alleged case of sexual harassment on Saturday.

In the opening event for a water gun festival, held by a beverage company in Sinchon, Seoul, Suzy showed up to declare the start of the festival as the model for a beverage commercial.

After the event, some fans claimed that Suzy was sexually harassed by the event host, who stood next to her in the opening ceremony.

In the video clip, which is going viral online, the host grazed her hip and upper leg.

The event officials countered the claim, saying that this would not have been possible in public.

Suzy’s agency JYP Entertainment also denied the claim, saying that it was nothing serious but only a mistake. The agency added that it would look into the case more thoroughly.
