Previously, online communities and social media platforms revealed a video of Zero Base One member Kim Jiwoong conducting a video fan signing event with a fan. In the video, Kim Jiwoong concluded the fan signing event, and just before the screen went blank, he allegedly uttered a curse word, causing a significant uproar.

At the time, the agency Wake One stated, “To ensure accurate and objective confirmation, we will employ various methods such as digital media forensics to clearly identify the facts and protect the artist.” On this day, they announced, “After analyzing the voice in the video, it was determined that the pronunciation of ‘thank you’ and the curse word differed in pitch and height, indicating that they were spoken by different speakers and the curse word was not spoken by Kim Jiwoong.

Meanwhile, Zero Base One achieved consecutive ‘double million-seller’ status with their debut album ‘YOUTH IN THE SHADE,’ released in July last year, and their second mini-album ‘MELTING POINT,’ released in November.
