On February 22nd, 2021, the Internet accused K-pop star Soojin of behaving rudely with her classmates in high school. On the same day, the singer addressed the bullying rumors on a website called 'U CUBE'. In her post, she denied all the claims about her being a bully or causing any student physical harm. However, she admitted to smoking cigarettes on campus when it was not allowed! She also recalled breaking the rules of the school's dress code. What other incidents was she accused of? Read below to find out!
'I was rebelling at a young age and I haven't smoked since', Soojin posted on 'U CUBE'.
In her post, she started off by clarifying how during her high school days, she stood out from the crowd. The singer opened up about trying smoking and violating a few school dress code rules just for fun.
Obviously, what she did was wrong, but she was also 14 years old at the time. Do you think she has matured?
'I have never spoken to actress Seo Shin-Ae when we went to school together,' the K-pop idol confessed.
On February 22nd, 2021 South Korean actress Seo Shin-Ae accused Soojin of joining a school gang that used to bully juniors in high school. As the two attended the same high school, the matter gained a lot of attention on Korean platforms such as Naver. The idol shut this down by saying that even though they might have been in the same grade, she has never spoken to her.
Why would the actress lie? Could it be jealousy?
'I want to apologize to everyone who was hurt by my embarrassing actions.' Soojin ended her apology letter.
The 'Lion' singer admitted that she had a verbal conflict with one of her close friends. Due to her rebellious nature when it came to dress-code, there were always negative rumors about her. The star also clarified that she never bullied anyone. Read the full apology here.
I think minor acts like smoking and not wearing a tie are not serious accusations. Do you think so too?
Yes, children should follow all the rules at school well. I don't understand why someone would try to make up fake rumors about a person they don't know about. It can seriously damage their career and life.
Bullying is a serious issue and those who lie about it for fun should be punished. Do you think what Soojin did was forgivable? Comment below!
