BTOB's Yook Sungjae Shutdown Rumors with One Witty Gesture
At the end of August 13 and during BTOB's VLIVE, Yook Sungjae subtly denied and shut down his dating rumors.
While their VLIVE is supposed to be like a send-off party for BTOB's leader, Seo Eunkwang as he will be enlisting in the military on August 21, Yook Sungjae made sure to address the issue he is currently on. He drank on a cup which has the words "muk-geum" which is a Korean slang for "don't feed the trolls" or "don't give your attention to useless words or actions."
Netizens applauded the BTOB's maknae for handling his dating rumors in such a witty and unique way.
