Lucas Wong (黃旭熙), the Chinese-Thai member of South Korean boy group NCT, is caught in a dating scandal after an alleged ex-girlfriend under the pseudonym “A” went public about their relationship and claimed that the star only dated her for her money.
Sharing details of their relationship, “A” provided snippets of their conversation and released selfies that Lucas sent to her. “A” revealed that they started dating after Lucas took the initiative to ask for her phone number, but they mutually agreed to break up because of Lucas’ busy schedule.
After the breakup, “A” claimed that Lucas continued to contact her, “The next day, Lucas asked to meet as friends, but every time we met on his days off, he would come to my apartment to ask for money. He was like that even when we were dating and often asked me to buy him cigarettes. Lucas said he can’t buy them because he is an idol and he didn’t want his manager to find out that he used his credit card.”
Throughout the relationship, “A” shared that she bought Lucas many gifts including luxury brand items, “At first, he thanked me and took them; however, later he told me that he earns a lot of money so I shouldn’t give him anything unless it’s a house or a car.”
“A” revealed that eventually she felt that the relationship was one-sided and Lucas would only contact her for her money, “Every time he wanted to go to a hotel, he would ask me to make a reservation. At the hotel, he would just call room service and sleep all day. After we check out of the hotel, he would disappear without thanking me as if it was a given that I should pay for everything.”
“A” also shared that she developed depression when they eventually broke up and recalled the unpleasant experience, “He scolded me and said, ‘I hate that you are too much like a fan’ and ‘You should never do thing that a fan would do.’”
As “A” felt that she was being taken advantage of by Lucas in the relationship, she messaged Lucas that she would be suing him in court but Lucas suddenly changed his phone number and disappeared.
After the allegations surfaced, Lucas’ record label, SM Entertainment, recognized the gravity of the situation and announced that Lucas’ work activities will be halted for the time being.
Lucas also took to social media to apologize for his past actions, “Here, I sincerely apologize to the people whom have been hurt because of my wrong behavior. I beg to give me a chance to apologize. I’m really sorry.”
