Apink’s Chorong Accused of Physical Violence By Childhood Friend + Apologizes For Underage Drinking

Apink’s agency Play M Entertainment has responded to more evidence submitted by alleged victim “A.”

On April 1, Apink’s agency Play M Entertainment announced that they had taken legal action against a childhood friend of Chorong who had allegedly been threatening her with false claims. In the days that followed, the childhood friend in question went public with her allegations, accusing Chorong of (TW: Physical Violence) [Spoiler (click to open)]having slapped her face and kicked her in the shin when they were students.

On April 7, “A” shared she had expected Chorong would admit to the school violence accusations but was flustered that Chorong’s side responded with legal action instead. “A” said she would also take legal action and revealed a transcript of her phone call that showed Chorong had acknowledged she had been involved in school violence.

Here is the telephone transcript as follows:

Sad but inevitable; Dongwoo and Sungyeol also leaving Woolim Ent.

I kept waiting for this post to come up but it didn't which honestly speaks volumes about how far Infinite have fallen out of the limelight. I myself haven't been a very good fan of theirs in so long, but lbr, there wasn't much to be a fan off at the end. Woolim did these boys so dirty and it makes me sad cause at the end of the day, they're still my most favourite KPOP group and Dongwoo remains my single most favourite human being in the world. I wish I loved his solo stuff more :(

(Hope I did it right this time mods, sorry. It's been years since I last submitted a post.)

Regarding the performances, at the source there are other groups too + individual fancams, but there are so many vids, I didn't feel like making a megapost T-T
Also, they posted some type of teaser on YT, but there's no Eng translation (can be found through the comments though).
