“The Glory” PD Ahn Gil Ho Admits To School Bullying
The Glory PD Ahn Gil Ho has admitted to school bullying against his classmates.
In a statement shared by Ahn Gil Ho’s legal counsel, he admitted that he did, in fact, participate in school bullying in his past and apologized for his past behavior.
This is Kim Mun Hui from law firm Jipyong, representing PD Ahn Gil Ho.
We would like to ask for your understanding that there was a delay between the initial report and us announcing our position.
Ahn Gil Ho had a girlfriend that he started dating while he was studying abroad in the Philippines in 1996. When he heard that his girlfriend became the target of teasing at school due to him, in the heat of the moment, he got emotional and caused an unforgettable wound on another person.
He is asking for forgiveness from those who were hurt by him. If he is provided the chance, he would like to meet the victim in person, or at the least contact them via phone call, to convey his apologies.
He also apologizes for causing controversy over his unfortunate incident.

The statement came soon after the director’s ex-girlfriend spoke on the matter.

His then-girlfriend, identified as “B,” told Yonhap that the assault did occur. She clarified that her friends never teased her so badly as to warrant physical violence.
Contrary to what people think, my friends didn’t tease me to the extremes. It was more like the usual joking around and bickering among friends…If I knew my friends would be assaulted like that, I wouldn’t have told him about it at all.
