On an online community, an alleged former classmate of the APRIL member claimed to be a victim of Jinsol’s bullying. The supposed victim shared photos of Jinsol’s notes from their school days, which showed the use of a Korean profanity.

Bbasooni isn’t a good word and it’s usually used as a profanity. It didn’t make sense to me that someone who was training to become an idol would use that term freely. I remember Jinsol always calling me a bbasooni and chuckling while she did so.

A few years ago, I wrote these words about Jinsol, but her fans threatened me saying that her label would sue me. They said that her agency was partnered with a huge law firm so it would be hard for me to fight against them. I didn’t want to get sued so I just let it be.

It’s been hard for me to watch her on television, living as a celebrity when she is a bully who picks on people.

She continued her testimony by sharing a direct message with the APRIL member.

It’s alarming to see that nothing about your behavior has changed and you act the same from your elementary days. I write these words because I am genuinely concerned.

Seeing your behavior towards your former member, Hyunjoo reminded me of when you acted the same way towards your classmates. I was really startled. You always made a peculiar expression towards your classmates, but if you didn’t like them, you would look them up and down. You’re the same as before.

The alleged victim concluded her statement by urging Jinsol to apologize to Hyunjoo.

If you keep denying everything, it will only make it worse. It won’t be good for you and it won’t be good for the victim, Hyunjoo unnie. Stop trying to deny it. You’ll only make it worse for yourself. There will come a time when even the few people who are on your side will turn their backs on you.

I hope that you genuinely apologize to Lee Hyunjoo unnie and ask for her forgiveness.
