What made many think that the Korean actress is involved is because the Internet user who first accused the singer of being a bully briefly mentioned a “Miss Seo” in her allegations.
In the post, the anonymous person stated: “I remember talking to Miss Seo about you. Every day you screamed behind her on the way to school. They said things like ‘you little guy’ and ‘you bbangu ddongu’. When she was interviewed about Speaking of bullying at school, you actually confronted her with a group of your friends. I don’t know if you will remember, but I was with her. “
Back in 2012, when the Korean actress was interviewed about her role as a tyrant on the series
“SOS – Save Our School,” she revealed when she was a victim of school bullying as a middle school student.
At the time, Seo Shin Ae stated, “When I was on High Kick, I was bullied for the role. The kids at school made fun of me and nicknamed me ‘bbangu ddonggu’. I was in sixth grade when I performed on High Kick. The bullying continued into middle school. “
