Korean singer Ailee on Thursday made her first stage appearance since the nude photo incident at the 2013 Melon Music Awards. 

According to a report in The Korean Herald the 24-year-old singer put on a dazzling performance with singer Shin Seung-hoon and hip-hop group Baechigi after being named one of the top 10 artists at the ceremony.

A U.S.-based Korean pop news site uploaded what appeared to be her nude photos on Nov. 10, touching off a storm of disputes and media coverage about its motive and the identity of the leaker.

Ailee’s agency YMC Entertainment said the photos were from a camera test shoot for a famous underwear company, who offered Ailee a modeling job. The offer turned out to be fake, the agency said.
