[인사이트] Reporter Kwon Gil-yeo = April’s former member Lee Hyun-ju was bullied within the group and it was revealed that he withdrew from the team.
On the 28th, a post was posted in an online community accusing April members of atrocities.
Mr. A, who introduced himself as Lee Hyun-joo’s younger brother from April, said, “I always wanted to tell the truth a few years ago, but I have endured thinking of my sister’s future,” he said. “I feel like I have to speak with courage and I write this way.”
Mr. A said, “It is known that my sister withdrew from April because she wanted to act, but it is not true,” he said. “My sister has been subjected to great bullying and bullying within the group, and she suffered a lot from panic disorder and shortness of breath. I made a choice.”
Mr. A said, “I sent a letter to my sister who withdrew from the team telling her that the company is going out to act, and told her to write it down. My sister wrote it down and the family thought it was right to do so for her.” After writing a letter, my sister became the person who betrayed the team for her own interests and heard bad comments.”
Mr. A was angry that he had never received an apology from the members even though his sister was a victim.
He said, “Rather, when I saw my mother who visited the company, I laughed at the members of the team and passed by,” he said. “I don’t want to see these members working anymore.”
Currently, April’s agency DSP Media has announced its position to “check the facts” in this regard.
There are also popular members such as Kim Chae-won and Lee Na-eun on April, and if it is revealed to be true, it is likely that there will be a big obstacle to activities.
