  • He fractured a toe while performing during the concert titled “Yellow Note “.
  • In September 2018, Kang Sung Hoon was involved in a controversy for various reasons. Kang Sung Hoon was scheduled to hold a fan meeting in Taiwan in early September. The event was organized by Kang Sung Hoon, his fan club Hoony World and local organizers. However, the fan meeting was cancelled and the tickets were not refunded properly. In addition, Hoony World is accused of misappropriating fan donations for a video screening event.
  • In November 2018, a group of SECHSKIES fans filed a complaint against Kang Sung Hoon and his fan club Hoony World for allegedly embezzling proceeds from a video screening session organized as an event for the 20-year anniversary of SECHSKIES’ debut on April 15, 2017. Hoony World was accused of falsely recording the proceeds as having been donated and, in reality, embezzling them.

  • On July 17, 2019, the Seoul Central District Prosecutor’s Office dropped the charges against Kang Sung Hoon for embezzlement and fraud. The Prosecutor’s Office argued that the main purpose of the event was video screening, not donation, and because the fundraising campaign was voluntarily conducted by fans, it is not reasonable to claim that Kang Sung Hoon cheated his fans. They also explained that because Kang Sung Hoon and his fans had not decided on a specific amount or charity to donate, he is not guilty of embezzlement.
