Going on an indefinite hiatus after his dating controversy and accusations of being a “soft rice king” by his ex-girlfriend, Korean boy group NCT’s Lucas Wong (黃旭熙) looks to be preparing for a return to the limelight!
Accused of cheating, his image plummeted and further tarnished when multiple other women stepped up with their claims, publicly exposed scathing details about the Hong Kong member of NCT, such as of him speaking badly about his teammates behind them. Promising to reflect on his actions, he took a hiatus announced in a handwritten letter Instagram post captioned in Mandarin and Korean, in which he apologized for letting fans down, and causing inconvenience to everyone.
Although many NCT fans hoped that he would exit the boyband, Lee Sum-Soo, the CEO of his management company SM Entertainment recently shared a photo of himself with the 24-year-old. Lying low from the public eye, Lucas also returned in February 2022 to social media for the first time in months with scenic picture updates. He later posted a video of practicing dance moves in his studio, which had netizens speculating on an impending comeback.
While some responded positively, other NCTzens voiced their opposition, “Uploading photos like this is too rude to fans”, “Even civil servants’ iron rice bowls are not as secure as his”, “Hope the photo has been taken after he decided to leave SM”.
