HyunA denies bullying allegations: Korean pop star HyunA has denied allegations of school violence that were recently levied against her by an anonymous person online. The singer-songwriter took to Instagram to deny the allegations, saying, “I have never slapped someone on the cheek or hit anyone. I hope that whoever wrote the post will have more happiness come find them.”

Of late numerous anonymous allegations of school violence have emerged against several South Korean artists. Some of the prominent stars who have been bullying at school on social media are Kihyun (Monsta X band), Chuu (from the girl band Loona), The Boyz member Sunwoo, actor Park Hye Su, former I.O.I group member Kim Sohye and (G)I-DLE’s Soojin.

HyunA, who made her debut as a member of girl group Wonder Girls in 2007, was accused of bullying in a February 23 post, “I still remember the day of the elementary school festival in fifth grade. You and your friends called me to the back of the school, and if I didn’t come, asking since when we were friends and that I never had a friend like you, you said you’d come to my house. When I went, I remember there were three of you including you, and you took turns slapping me across the face. I also remember how you took my glasses off and threw them because it was uncomfortable if they were on my face,” claimed the post.

The anonymous accuser also added that they had not spoken up before as there was no evidence to confirm the incident. “The only evidence I have is the graduation album from our elementary school so I wonder if anyone will believe me now, but I get so frustrated when I see you come out on TV like nothing’s wrong. Are you even regretting what you did??”

In her Instagram post, however, HyunA, apart from denying the allegations of bullying, also wrote about her hectic school life, as a budding artist. “… although I probably have much more I can tell you, since you may want to hear about it, starting as a supporting child actor at the age of eight and as a trainee at an entertainment company at the age of 12 in fifth grade, I grew up developing my dream of becoming a singer. Because of this, my school life, now that I’m sharing about it, was something I always wanted more from. I had to get on the bus to the company as soon as school was over, and with my young way of thinking, I felt like I was robbed of the moments I could build memories and experiences that I could only gain at that particular time.”
