Shannon Williams initially responded to Sungjae and Jooeun’s scandal with a screenshot of an article allegedly saying that it was all for noise marketing. It was posted with the caption “This is the epitome of I’m bored”, but was later deleted.
The deleted post, however, resurfaced on online platforms with a different caption that said, “The devil works, but Kim Kwangsoo Works harder.”
Damn Shannon. pic.twitter.com/4DdgmJtFx6

Shannon got wind of this controversial repost and took to Instagram to shut down rumors, claiming it was not her original post.
Shannon’s response came right after MBK Entertainmnent posted a statement on behalf of fellow labelmate, DIA’s Jooeun. Sungjae’s agency also denied the reports with the idol also airing his piece in the vaguest of ways.
