The 22-year-old, who is part of several K-pop groups and boy bands including WayV, SuperM and NCT, announced the break after several online posts from alleged former romantic partners which claimed that he had abused his identity as a star and cheated on them, reports South China Morning Post.
"I've been looking back at my actions and I was able to sincerely reflect on myself. It was wrong and irresponsible and I betrayed my loving and supportive fans," wrote rapper of Thai and Chinese descent, who was born in Hong Kong.
"Once again, I would like to apologise to everyone who may have been disappointed by my actions. I will make sure this never happens again and I will halt all my schedules as of now and take time to reflect on myself," he added.
The girls alleged that he took advantage of them when they were his fans, cheated on them and gaslighted them.
One also accused him of making her buy him designer goods, such as a Balenciaga jacket, while another said he made her pay for hotels and even cigarettes.
Wong made his debut in mega boy band NCT in 2018 and is also part of its Chinese subunit WayV and a band known as SuperM. He is popular in China also for being in the Chinese version of variety show Running Man.
