Hyolyn Settles Dispute With Person Claiming To Be Victim Of Singer’s Alleged School Bullying



Hyolyn has reached an agreement with the person who claimed to be the victim of school violence perpetrated by the singer.

On May 28, a source from Hyolyn’s agency told News1, “After a long conversation, the two sides have reached a peaceful resolution.”

This settlement comes three days after an anonymous netizen posted on an online community accusing Hyolyn of being a bully during their middle school days. Shortly after the post went public, Hyolyn’s agency released an initial statement to say they were confirming the facts and were planning to meet with the alleged victim. The agency later released a second statement asserting that they would be taking legal action in response to the one-sided allegations that damaged the artist’s reputation.

Glad it didn't turn into a witch hunt.

Bullying is awful, and I feel for anyone who has gone through it. It’s a serious issue that should always be addressed.

That being said, I feel uneasy about punishing someone for the rest of their life based on the person they were when they were in school. People grow out of being bullies, recognize their mistakes, and become better adults. If Hyorin was still a bully to coworkers/Sistar/friends/etc i’d want her cancelled. But I feel like she (or anyone with these allegations) should be given a chance to show they’ve changed.

I didn’t know she had bullying rumours till this (except for when the unnies were said to “bully” Dasom for not given permission to tan).

But 15 years is pretty long period to change, and I do hope that she has changed or acknowledges her mistakes, if she really had did it.

Guess that confirms the rumors.

I just hope that she has changed over the past 15 years

So this means the rumors were true? I imagine her company would’ve torn the accuser apart otherwise. Agree with above that I hope she’s changed for the better as well.

Hyolyn has one woman's agency, she is her company.
