As anyone who watches the world of South Korean entertainment knows by now, Ailee became one of K-pop’s most talked about stars when the New Jersey-based website allkpop published unauthorized nude photos of the 24-year-old American-born singer on Nov. 10 2013.

The Ailee nude photos had been censored with black bars before being taken down completely from the site earlier that month, following thousands of negative reader comments.

6Theory Media, the parent company of allkpop, claims to have gotten the images from the anonymous image board AnonIB. But the fact that Ailee’s ex-boyfriend Daniel Lee, who is the vice president of content for allkpop, admitted that he attempted to sell the photos to Dispatch, has left many readers convinced that he leaked the photos.

Outrage over the incident has led some allkpop readers, most notably the editors of the British online publication Beyond Hallyu, to boycott the website completely.
