1. [+465, -15] Ew his picture~

2. [+392, -34] What in the... judging by looks, he looks like he'd be the one assaulting someone and taking their money...

3. [+308, -17] Ew, what is he, a vampire?

4. [+33, -5] In his younger days, Kim Chang Ryeol may have gone around getting into fights because he couldn't control his temper but he never resorted to stealing money from anyone

5. [+32, -2] Why would Kim Chang Ryeol do that? He's already got so much money, what's he going to do stealing some money from a rookie group with no popularity ㅋ Don't think you can fool us

6. [+12, -0] A group that never even promoted is owed 30 million won??;;; That doesn't make sense. Sure Kim Chang Ryeol has a history of being immature and getting into scandals but he was never the type to steal money from anyone.

7. [+12, -2] Honestly just sounds like they're trying to use his rebellious image to exaggerate what happened and get people to believe them. I bet they're scared now because the public isn't believing them like they thought we would.

8. [+12, -1] I don't think they understand how the entertainment industry works. The company invests money into them and they don't get paid until they start bringing in an income. There are tons of idols who see regularly on TV who still aren't getting paid yet. I doubt this group has an income at all...

1. [+165, -8] What an interesting turn of events... I wonder who's telling the truth

2. [+162, -15] I think Kim Chang Ryeol is telling the truth. Sounds like he trained these kids and had them out already but a new agency is trying to start some beef so that they can take the group for themselves. And since Kim Chang Ryeol already has a rebellious image, they're trying to play on that to get the media on their side. Honestly though, Kim Chang Ryeol is right. The kids don't even promote anything, what income could they have been making? Sounds more like the group's trying to get out of their contract now by lying their way out of it.

3. [+160, -7] Why would this group even have an income? It takes rookies up to a year at minimum after their debut to start getting paid after paying back their investment...

4. [+18, -2] 30 million won makes no sense. I don't know what kind of contract they were under. There are way more popular male groups from top 3 agencies who barely got paid 100 million won each between four members after two years of work since debut... but we're supposed to believe these three nugu members are owed 30 million won......?

5. [+11, -3] It just sounds like they know Kim Chang Ryeol has a history of getting into fights so they're trying to use his image to get some money out of him. Either way, we won't know until the truth is out.

1. [+13,518, -395] I believe him for the first time in my life. If he turns out to be lying, he better be prepared to leave this earth.

2. [+10,120, -262] I'll believe you! I don't know who's telling the truth but I choose to believe you because it's pathetic to think that a man your age is still using his fists instead of words.

3. [+9,946, -303] I choose to believe Kim Chang Ryeol in this. He's asking us to.

4. [+9,309, -608] Those who get into fights early on in their life usually stop as they mature ㅋㅋㅋ I doubt Kim Chang Ryeol would've continued with his aggressive ways because he wants to keep his career in broadcast

5. [+1,768, -112] Sure Chang Ryeol has a history of beating people but he's not the type of person to deny ever beating someone either. He's the type to just admit that he beat someone because they deserved it. I think he's telling the truth here.

6. [+1,680, -49] For him to come out and say all this, I choose to trust him because he's now a husband and the father of a son. I'm sure he knows the consequences if it's found that he's lying...

7. [+1,267, -44] If the kids were apparently beat at a restaurant three years ago, I'm pretty sure someone would've filmed it on their cellphones and leaked it..... 

8. [+1,232, -49] It's hard to believe that they were supposedly beat at a restaurant. Everyone in Korea knows who Kim Chang Ryeol is so I doubt he would've done it so openly in public. As for the money stealing, police investigations will determine that... but for an unknown group with three members to make 30 million won? That honestly smells like a lie.
