Oh wow. These bullying accusations have honestly became a trend. I remember the time people accused Taeyong for being a bully. And SM forced him to apologize without digging the information. That boy was crying when he was being forced to apologize. Later it turned out, it was all a rumour made by his jealous classmates. I'm honestly not going to believe these stupid rumours at all. These netizens can fvck off. Get a motherfvcking life.

This is absolutely messed up, what is this now. A trend? Are they making this up just for fun because they hate that specific idol?

I kinda don't believe these accusations, because how can they accuse so many in such a short time? Extremely suspicious imo. And ive been supporting three of the actors for a long time, and if some of these were true, its better of them to speak up. But if it turns out that those were all false, that would just show how trashy some people can be. I have extreme trust issues so I highly doubt that they were, probably because of how they talked about Dong-hee tbh..

i like soojin but if the claims are true, she has to face the music.
its not wrong to expect higher standards from idols.
after all, they make money by being role models (ie. an idol!!!).
this will teach companies to be more careful in selecting their trainees

The victims must have been feeling bad when they have to see their bullies on top infront of others where as they are the one suffering in the end .. I'll not judge the situation whether it's true or not but school bully is scary and very harmful in South korea . And some are asking for proofs to the victims as if they will carry evidence when they were being bullied. But still i do believe some accusations might be false as they made it out of jealouslyand their success .
