Fans of WayV are upset following the release of an interview with Ten and YangYang that links their responses to questions with member Lucas‘s scandal.
In a recent interview with South China Morning Post, Ten and YangYang were promoting their recent sub-unit single, “Low Low.” Ten took some time to speak directly to their fans about their worries.
Fans don’t need to be worried about us that much, because we’re working towards our goals and we’re still WayV.
The interviewer asked Ten about his concerns about worrying fans. Ten replied that he would like fans not to worry, as the members themselves will work hard.
Sometimes, as a person [not just a star] when someone worries about you too much, you kind of feel heavy, right? […] It’d be nice if I can sort out all my worries by myself and they can see the good side of me. That’s why I tell our fans not to worry, because some stuff we have to figure out for ourselves.
The article, written by Tamar Herman, states that the two members did not address Lucas’s controversy explicitly, nor does it include any questions that may have been asked related to Lucas. However, fans are upset over the implication throughout the article that Ten was asked to address the scandal.
Fans took to Twitter to express their feelings about the article.
and fuck sm for putting ten in a position where HE is answering questions about lucas because they refuse to put out another statement.

the rest of the members shouldn’t be questioned abt the situation. the ones who should be answering all of these questions is SM or LC himself. the members shouldn’t be questioned abt this esp when it’s a hard topic for them as a lot of bad stuff has happened bc of his scandal.

That was clearly done strictly for clickbait. You also left Yangyang out of the second interview, referred to him as “fellow member” which makes your statement below appear completely disingenuous. https://t.co/Zkl3r3sMDR

Ten and YangYang released their sub-unit single, “Low Low,” in August 2021. Fans hope to see more opportunities for the idols to show their art, as well as speak about it.
