NCT Lucas’ ‘gaslighting’ claims explained

NCT Lucas was first accused of the gaslighting scandal by a Korean citizen on August 23rd. According to Soompi, the user blamed Lucas for gaslighting her with comments like: “I don’t like that you’re too much like a fan.” He even allegedly said, “Don’t be a fan of an idol anymore.”

The user further explained what happened with Lucas. She wrote: “He always came to the hotel room, ordered room service, slept, and left. From the moment we checked out, he would go off the radar and keep his distance, saying he felt uncomfortable. He didn’t say a single word of gratitude and took it for granted that I was paying for him.”
