The NCT and SuperM artist would be part of a series of controversial statements after it came to light that the idol had a stalker's past in what would be his high school days.

The photo would be about a message left by taeyong upon graduation from his old high school. The comment that he would have left would reflect that the idol comments that the final event would not be completely perfect, due to a "gay" person:

They are all fun and have amazing personalities, which is why I think they will grow up to be great. But I don't think it will happen because [name deleted] is gay. I'm sure. —Taeyong

The netizens or citizens of South Korea have not been slow to respond to this publication or leak indicating that the idol would be homophobic and that he should not be having the success that he is. For them, many have expressed their annoyance on social networks and have asked the authorities to do something about it.

Despite all this, Taeyong would be in one of his best moments to make his world debut with one of the best K-pop groups, SuperM. Thus, everything seems to indicate that said boy band would be one of the most successful in this musical genre.
