Fans were left stunned after JYP Entertainment suddenly announced in DAY6’s official fan cafe about the departure of Junhyeok from DAY6, JYP’s rookie band.
With a lot of questions raised due to JYP Entertainment’s vague response on the termination of Junhyeok’s contract with the agency, fans were restless to know the exact reason for the departure of the keyboardist of the group. And now, rumours are circulating around that Junhyeok’s contract was apparently terminated due to his dating scandal which has been going on rounds lately in the netizen circle. Previously, many fans had noticed some interaction between a particular fan and the artist himself which started the rumours.
The rumoured girlfriend is a DAY6 fan who was previously a Wonpil stan. However after a few fanmeetings, the girl started posting more and more about the group which included schedules of the band which was not notified or released anywhere. Fans started growing more suspicious when the girl started posting on her Instagram account more photos which coincided with Junhyeok’s whereabouts in his Instagram updates.

The girl also posted screenshots of her conversation with Junhyeok which clearly shows Junhyeok having a friendly and flirty conversation with her.
Below are the translated text messages between the two.
JH: Mm, I remembered you because I saw you for the first time on Instagram ㅋㅋ
Fan: Ah, I guess you didn’t see me at your concert ㅜㅜ You clicked a heart on my Instagram picture, right?
JH: No, no! I saw you before and recognized you at our fan meet and realized you came! and remembered you ever since ㅋㅋ
and you’re right, I did click like.. ㅋㅋ and deleted it again ㅋㅋㅋ
Fan: I see! I feel honored ㅎㅎ
JH: Why would you ㅋㅋㅋ
Fan: Well you’re oppa after all! Im Jun Hyuk!! …
Fan: Well I don’t feel anything weird ㅎㅎ
ㅜㅜ Or are you uncomfortable with me ㅜ
JH: No, no, I’m just scared that other people will think I’m being biased towards you…
Don’t tell anyone that I reply to your messages ㅋㅋㅋ
Fan: Of course!! I’ll hide them carefully
JH: Anyway, thank you for coming to see our concerts all the time
Later the girl changed her Instagram account to “loverstargram” and revealed that she was dating him for the past 40 days. After the breakout news of Junhyeok’s departure, she released another screenshot of conversation between them where Junhyeok is apparently asking her not to worry and that they will take care of everything together even if they have to go to the court.
JH: Let’s handle this between ourselves
Even if it goes to court, let’s handle it ourselves
If there’s a penalty fee we have to pay, then oppa will pay it and you pay too
It’s the most realistic thing we can do
I just can’t act like nothing’s happening because my job is about selling my face
You understand me, right..
or am I the wrong one here?
Fan: I get it, let me know if there’s anything else I should watch out for
JH: Well I don’t know if this will go to court or anything)
Junhyeok has made his Instagram account private and the girl has deleted all of her posts since her last upload.
There is a huge number of mixed reactions from fans where some are supporting him while others are calling him out to be ignorant to sacrifice his career over this. Many fans are also supporting JYP Entertainment’s decision of taking Junhyeok out of the group before more harm would be done to DAY6’s reputation. Meanwhile, JYP Entertainment has still not responded to the rumours.
