AceShowbiz - "Unpretty Rapstar" rapper Yuk Ji Dam has stirred debate among Kang Daniel's fans after she claimed that she and the Korean idol were dating. Ji Dam took everyone's attention when she posted screenshots of a blog that wrote a sort of fanfiction written by Daniel's fan known as a 'pretend Kang Daniel.'
However, the raptress claimed that the blog posts were inspired by her real story with the Wanna One member and accused the blogger of being a stalker. Ji Dam pointed out one particular line, "Spring.. You're like a cold winter when you don't smile, but like a warm spring when you do," which she claimed Daniel had said directly to her.
When some social media users questioned her mental health state since her posts were full of typos and nonsensicalities, Ji Dam insisted she was not delusional and that everything she said was true. She, however, later deleted all her posts regarding her claim that she dated Daniel.
When one fan asked, "Do you have proof that you dated? Do you have proof?" she answered, "I have a s**t ton." She also wrote in another post, "I'm not the one who has to leave feedback, but those people instead. Stop writing harsh words if you don't know it all. Ah, I don't know it all either. Please appear... Stop... playing.. I'm getting mad. I don't know what's going on from the start to the end. Everyone has a story, whether it's their pains or not, so just leave me alone for now."
Trying to set things clear, fellow "Unpretty Rapstar" rapper Kasper took to Instagram to share details of Daniel and Ji Dam's alleged relationship. Kasper wrote, "About 2 years ago, I invited Kang Daniel who was a trainee at the time to a party with my acquaintances. (I went to the same tutoring school as him since we were young in Busan). Ji Dam was also at this party, and they got to know each other there." Kasper said that the two "were keeping touch with good feelings" afterward.
However, as Daniel was busy with filming schedules and practices during season 2 of "Produce 101", "Daniel settled things with Ji Dam with no hard feelings because he wanted to focus on practicing, thinking that it might be his last chance, and so it would prove difficult to keep in touch under the circumstances," Kasper continued. "Even when they met at a shop after his debut, they only greeted each other professionally, and I believe it was not possible for them to have more personal communication than that."
On Ji Dam's claim, Kasper commented, "I do not know why she captured and posted those blog posts, and I do not understand why she has so many spelling and typing errors that it is impossible to comprehend her, and it's difficult to communicate with her right now. But one certain thing is that it doesn't feel like the blog content was written with the two's relationship in mind. Because I am not Ji Dam herself, I can't explain her strange words or situation, but as someone who introduced the two of them, I hope there will be some lessening of the speculations which cause harm."
