'Street Woman Fighter' Dancer Rozalin's Scam and Sponsorship Controversy
Recently on September 29, "Street Woman Fighter" dancer, Rozalin, became embroiled in a scamming controversy after an anonymous netizen on the online community forum, Pann Nate, shared their experience on trying to receive dance lessons from Rozalin in preparation for their college entrance exams.
According to the netizen, they had paid Rozalin a total of 2.9 million won (around $2,440) for her dance lessons, of which 2.6 million won (around $2,190) of it were for the dance lessons itself, and the rest were to pay for the renting of a dance studio.
The netizen explained that Rozalin had agreed to give them dance lessons for 1.5 hours once a week back in April 2020. However, the netizen said that Rozalin had been cancelling the dance lessons as the weeks went by.
After failing to receive any dance lessons, the netizen asked for a refund, to which Rozalin refused to make as she claimed to have already made a choreography and paid for the dance studio. In the end, the netizen was only refunded 500,000 won (around $421).
Another netizen also came forward with a similar experience with Rozalin. According to the netizen, Rozalin kept delaying their dance lessons and changing schedules while also arriving at least 30 minutes late.
On the same day, Rozalin was also accused of not returning sponsored items after a PR company called out the dancer on her Instagram post years ago.

She continued, "I met with the students and parents, and with a reflecting heart, I sincerely apologized and gave them a full refund. I'm sorry for disappointing everyone who has supported me in this unfortunate incident."
Rozalin also addressed the sponsorship controversy. "About the sponsorship, the work had already been completed back in 2019 with the advertising agency. But it was unexpectedly and suddenly published as an article, so both the agency and I are in a perplexed situation. I am sorry once again," Rozalin said.
Rozalin ends her post by apologizing once again to the students and parents, as well as the fans who became disappointed in her through these incidents. She also promises to look back at the incident to prevent such mistakes from happening again in the future.
