On February 27, fans dedicated a billboard ad to NU'EST's Baekho at Apgujeong Station to celebrate his 6th debut anniversary. However, Seoul Metro has taken down the ad due to his ongoing investigation for sexual assault.
Others have stated that since the billboard did not pass the ad qualification standard, it should not have been put up in the first place. Seoul Metro responded to this with, "We have carelessly proceeded on with the installment because we assumed it would pass the ad qualification standard. We have since taken down the billboard after realizing that it did not pass."
The investigation that Baekho is involved with is from a post written back in June 2017 in which the victim alleges she was sexually assaulted by the idol back when they were in 7th or 8th grade.
