Reports of bully accusations against Nam Joo Hyuk keep rolling out.
Actor Nam Joo Hyuk has been accused of school violence by a third person, who has this time allegedly provided documentation of bullying and sexual harassment. The actor was first accused of bullying students on June 20 by an unnamed source who informed the media, but Nam Joo Hyuk’s management company, Management SOOP, vehemently refuted the claims. The complainant, the reporter who produced the piece, and the CEO of the newspaper that published the item were all later the targets of criminal accusations from the agency.
On July 6, a media outlet released a report claiming to have evidence from a third accuser. This time, the complainant claimed that Nam Joo Hyuk and his associates had tormented and harassed her sexually while they were in their senior year of high school.
Using text messages from a KakaoTalk group chat from May 10, 2012, the accuser claimed that she had been bullied because one of the actor’s friends didn’t like her and that she had been recruited into the talk without her choice. According to reports, the actor and his friends have been charged with participating in a form of cyberbullying known as “KakaoTalk prison” in South Korea by alternately sending the accuser hateful messages that included sexual harassment, and sexual insults, and disparaging remarks about her appearance.
According to the investigation, even though the actor did not start the group chat, he did personally insult the third accuser and participate in the conversation based on the text messages. The third accuser went on to say that after the incident was reported to the school at the time, the offenders were sentenced to mandatory community service at the school. Furthermore, it is said that the offenders didn’t apologize until their teacher made them. Ten years after the incident, the third complainant claimed that when she wanted to come out about the same, the perpetrators recently sought to apologize to her.
The text conversations were authentic, according to Nam Joo Hyuk’s agency, but they claimed that they were only a part of a larger picture that had been taken out of context on the evening of the same day, July 6. The problem had been resolved within the school, according to Management SOOP, but they disputed that Nam Joo Hyuk had lately made an effort to apologize to the third complainant.
Further, Management SOOP reaffirmed that the second accuser’s accusations were false and threatened legal action. In order to defend the reputation of their actor, they declared, “Our agency has resolved that we have no choice but to respond firmly to both the first accuser and the second accuser, and we aim to swiftly file litigation against them. We are also letting you know that we plan to take strong and decisive legal action against YouTubers or news outlets that spread unconfirmed and groundless claims or rumors.”
