DSP defends April, calls Lee Hyunjoo's claims "irresponsible and distorted"

Article: Agency takes April's side, claims Lee Hyunjoo is making "irresponsible and distorted claims"

Source: Insight via Instagram

1. [+897] But why would the victim lie... obviously she's exposing them because of what they did to her. What a maddening situation for the victim.

2. [+562] I didn't know they were still under the same agency

3. [+453] This agency is trying so hard to salvage what they can of April.. ㅋ

4. [+378] It makes no sense that they're denying claims of bullying when in their initial clarification statement, they admitted to the tumbler and sneaker situation actually happening. This group is a flop anyway along with their agency so I don't care what happens to them anymore but they're really handling this in such a sh*tty way.

5. [+220] ㅗ

6. [+355] Do they think whatever the majority says automatically goes?

7. [+112] What a stupid excuse, why would a victim coming forward be 'irresponsible'?

8. [+71] Hyunjoo-ya, hurry and leave that agency. Find strength!!

9. [+51] They're going to crumble the more they push this claim

10. [+20] So they're basically pushing her with a lawsuit to provide evidence. How scary.

11. [+12] April would've suffered less damage to their image if they just admitted it and apologized. They're crossing the line now ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ April and DSP's image is 100% shattered with this

12. [+14] DSP still doesn't get it

Jennie reported for gathering in a group of five or more


Article: Citizen reports Jennie for breaking 'no gatherings of 5 or more' rule since "YouTube is not a broadcast"

Source: Insight via Instagram

1. [+2,021] It's not that people don't have anything better to do, it's that people like Jennie are a public figure and should know to be extra careful, no..? If she did something wrong, she should pay the fine and do better next time. Why force shields on her? We're living in sensitive times, everyone should do their part to be careful;;

2. [+882] Okay but it's not like it was wrong to report her? ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

3. [+557] Being a YouTuber is a job. By this citizen's logic, then shouldn't companies be reported for having workers come in in groups of more than five?

4. [+184] YouTube is a job and business in itself, no? It's not like companies are banned from having workers come in in groups of less than five?

5. [+144] So many people who find everything triggering these days... ㅜㅜ

6. [+175] I see people on the subway who are gathered closer than this though ㅋㅋㅋ

7. [+418] There are huge YouTubers who go around filming with huge groups of staff. Does the rule apply to them as well?

8. [+489] I don't get why everyone is so busy defending her ㅋㅋ what's wrong is wrong

9. [+532] People are just looking to eat her alive... Then ban schools while you're at it too. But I have to admit, it is frustrating to see people gathering in groups bigger than five.

10. [+86] The citizen wasn't wrong to report her, they did a good thing

11. [+314] What's up with the comments here...??? Jennie or not, everyone needs to follow these rules, and she's definitely in the wrong for breaking the five or more rule, and so she should be fined for it, no?? You guys keep arguing that companies, schools, and public transportations don't have this rule but that's because people need to use those things to live so the rules don't apply to those areas. Even if Jennie's job is being a YouTuber, it's not like she got permits from the correct institutions to produce this video. Just because you guys like her doesn't mean the rest of us have to let these things go and watch you defend her over everything.

12. [+20] Then what about groups like BTS with over 7 members? Are they breaking the rule every day?
- People who live at the same address are allowed to gather in groups of more than five. Can you please use your brain before leaving comments like this? At least read the news. 

Hanlim Arts, famous high school of popular idols, on brink of being closed down

Article: Hanlim Arts High School with graduates of idols like Twice is on brink of being closed down

Source: Munhwa Ilbo via Naver

1. [+650, -10] They're no different from a private after school academy, why are they asking for tax payers to help keep them open? Are they crazy? The people who want to keep the school open should date their own money.

2. [+208, -5] The country has no money to fund this, stop whining

3. [+185, -4] Their idols can donate back to the school

4. [+134, -0] If a business fails, it should close. They're not an actual school, just a business under the guise of a school for celebrities to be able to work without the restrictions of actual school

5. [+55, -1] Set a precedent... close them down

6. [+26, -0] ㅋㅋㅋ Why should a private school be kept open with tax dollars? Are celebrities some special career funded by the nation now? The school deserves to be shut down, especially if you see the kind of kids that are attending it right now.

7. [+26, -2] Shut it down. Why should we help keep a private business open when even public sector officials misuse our tax money?

8. [+12, -0] Close them down. Don't waste our tax dollars on this. You guys want to go be clowns, go do it with your own money. Kids who were meant to be celebrities will find a way.

9. [+12, -0] It's unfortunate that this is happening to them but this isn't something the public has room to care about

10. [+9, -0] Is there a reason for idols to have their own school anyway? Don't they all get into college on special treatment? Isn't high school just something they barely attend anyway?

Lee Hyunjoo reveals three years of bullying by April, agency denies

 Article: Lee Hyunjoo, "April members group bullied me, assaulted + swore + talked ill of my parents"

Source: Everyday Econ via Naver

1. [+1,142, -17] Is there ever smoke without fire!!! Only the victims are left to suffer!! They really banded together to make a fool out of one person!! Hyunjoo-ssi, find strength!!

2. [+982, -1] What gave me goosebumps was when they were scared Hyunjoo would tell her parents so they made sure she could only call her mother while their manager was around. Sure, I can excuse the April members for being young and being swept up by the couple who were truly bullies but their agency should've known to step in and protect the victim. How can they instead be defending the bullies and try to sweep it under the rug? I find the agency just as guilty for thinking that the victim should just hold it all in as long as the group is making them money.

3. [+402, -3] Pfft... such shameless people in the world, right? You can tell just from the videos going around YouTube that she was being bullied. If you're going to lie like this, you should've made sure that your lies match your actions on TV as well. Do you take us all for fools? And I'm sure we all know that anyone who bullies their own groupmates will never learn what it means to reflect. 

4. [+314, -2] So it seems like they don't want to terminate contracts yet and yet their claim of the bullying rumors being false just sounds like it's all true in the end anyway. The evidence is all saved in the videos regardless.

5. [+290, -3] It will always be difficult for an individual to stand up against an entire agency... The reality that victims must face keep being repeated. Hyunjoo required a lot of bravery to stand up like this and I hope she finds the strength to get to the end of this.

6. [+83, -2] Lee Hyunjoo fighting!!!!

7. [+79, -0] It's hard to stay neutral when there are so many clips of them pulling her hair or glaring at her like they're going to eat her alive

8. [+43, -0] Always hardest for the prettiest to survive in a group of such uglies...

9. [+34, -0] Hyunjoo-ssi, I support you... Judging by the videos, it seems like there was some type of bullying going on, whatever reason they may have been for, and it seems true that there was not one member who tried to help you out. I don't know how this lawsuit will go but I hope you succeed. You can find the light with other work after. Fighting!

10. [+29, -0] Chaewon, Yang Yena, you guys are out too!

Is there hope for recovery for Seo Yeji's career?

Article: Will Seo Yeji ever be able to recover her career?

Source: MBN via Naver

1. [+7,953, -73] A recovery will be impossible. I'm amazed she's been treated kindly all this time with a character like hers.

2. [+4,088, -150] I can't even stand seeing Kim Jung Hyun either because of how foolish he seems. He's really trying to get his career back after all that mess he created for Seohyun and the directors?

3. [+2,079, -46] It needs to be a standard that anyone who bullies others will never deserve the love of the public. With all the stories about her that have come out now, it seems there's some truth to the rumors, and I don't think it's fair that someone like her gets to make a living off of the love of the public.

4. [+1,374, -32] She's t r a s h that can't even be recycled

5. [+751, -38] She's scary, criminal level scary

6. [+302, -4] Fine, maybe the gaslighting isn't an actual crime but just a quarrel between two lovers, but lying about her education and all the other stuff have ran her career into the ground. She's the type of person who has to get revenge on anyone who doesn't let her control them. She humiliates you in bizarre ways. Stuff like that won't work on everyone and forever either. There are tons of foxes like her in the industry. 

7. [+290, -5] If Seo Yeji's agency tries to shield her, they're going to take Kim Soo Hyun down with them

8. [+229, -2] Her graduation photos were shocking but I always thought there wouldn't be a problem as long as she was a kind person and a hard worker, but is there a reason to keep around an actress with as many moral problems as her? There are tons of actresses who are not only better but have better character too.

9. [+137, -2] Seems like she thought she was a top star and let it get to her head with how she was treating everyone~~ and yet I don't even know who she is~~

10. [+112, -2] 100% done with the industry

11. [+130, -28] Am I the only one who can't help but see Kim Jung Hyun and Yunho as fools now? ㅋ

12. [+104, -6] People aren't meant to be fixed... off to the dumpster with her

13. [+92, -0] There's no hope for this country if she's ever able to recover her career

14. [+79, -4] She's not even bothering to apologize or clarify anything anymore, it's over for her ㅋㅋㅋ even Lee Naeun refused to write an apology until the very end ㅋㅋ kids like them are as good as retired from the industry...

15. [+85, -14] I think the men are more foolish for being controlled by someone as ugly as her, no?
