According to a Sports Kyung Hyang report, the actor met with his former schoolmate several times in hopes of retracing their memories, but the two ultimately had different recollections of events and were unable to come to an agreement on what had happened.

(Nam Joo Hyuk) made attempts through discussions, but each party’s memories were vastly different, and thus weren’t able to continue their dialogue.

Previously, the alleged victim alleged that they were a victim of Nam Joo Hyuk’s bullying last June. In a report released by Sports Kyung Hyang, the alleged victim revealed the alleged abuse he had endured.

Nam Joo Hyuk would force me to turn on the hot spot on my phone, and he would take my phone to use it. During my High School years, Nam Joo Hyuk had my phone longer than I did. Also, I was his “Bread Shuttle” (someone who does chores for a bully), and I was forced to physically spar with my friends.
