As iKON B.I‘s controversy continues to grow with Han Seo Hee revealing the involvement of labelmate WINNER‘s Lee Seunghoon, netizens resurfaced an old past from Nam Taehyun, the former member of WINNER.
In the old post from January 2017, Nam Taehyun expressed his anger towards malicious netizens who continued to harass him about his departure from WINNER. In the post, he mentioned how he’s keeping quiet about the specific details about why he decided to leave the group and the company.
Do you think I’ll be the one to lose if I reveal the specific details of why I left?
Shut your mouth and stop writing malicious comments while I still remain quiet and keep this buried.

He later uploaded a photo of his finger tattoos that read, “I don’t do drugs / I am drugs“. He captioned the post, “The tattoo I got when making my solo debut after leaving WINNER.”
Netizens began to speculate that the real reason why he left the company was because he found out about Lee Seunghoon and B.I’s alleged involvement with Han Seo Hee. Back in 2016, B.I allegedly used marijuana with Han Seo Hee and purchased LSD from her. Old chats also revealed that Lee Seunghoon later contacted Han Seo Hee about B.I.
Considering how Nam Taehyun left the company near the end of 2016, netizens believe he knew about the drugs and no longer wanted to be a part of YG Entertainment.

I only answered questions about my departure from WINNER because the interviewer asked me. I didn’t want to talk about it either.
You say that I keep changing my story?
Do you think I’ll be the one to lose if I reveal the specific details of why I left? Shut your mouth and stop writing malicious comments while I still remain quiet and keep this buried.
I don’t want to fight so just root for the people you like. I’m not an idol, and I can live well even without forcefully making myself look like a nice, hardworking person.
I work hard on my own. I do what I set my mind to.
I’m living better than you people who curse others out while hiding in your room. If you don’t like me, stop paying attention to me and f*ck off
