Here is everything you need to know about the ongoing bullying allegations from Seo Shin-ae and Soojin.
Seo Shin-ae accuses (G) i-dles Soojin of bullying
According to a report in the Korea Times, 22-year-old actor Seo Shin-ae alleged on Instagram that Soojin and her friends attacked them personally for two years while they were in middle school. Seo wrote that they were laughing at her everywhere and talking about how an unattractive girl like her could become a celebrity. She added that some of them even stated that she was a slurred actress, and although all of these may have been meaningless comments to her, she still feels the pain. Seo said that with this incident, she became introverted and began to fear people and also realized that psychological violence can cause serious harm to people.
In early February this year, Soojin was accused of bullying Seo and other classmates while attending Waw Middle School in Hwaseong, Gyeonggi Province. After denying the allegations, Seo posted a cryptic message on Instagram that read “None of your excuses”. Soojin’s record label Cube Entertainment announced in March that Soojin would put their musical activities on hold. Then Seo shared another message: “Your bright spring was a cold winter and a bitter long night for me.”
Soojin also spoke out in favor of the bullying allegations against them and denied them. She said that she did not bully or talk behind Seo’s back and that her management agency tried to contact Seo’s management company but there was no response. She concluded by stating that she would like Seo to provide clarification on the entire prosecution charge soon. Her statement read: “Every time I make a statement, actress Seo Shin Ae also publishes something that makes a lot of people believe that I am bullying her.”
