BlockBerryCreative releases statement re: Chuu's bullying accusations



Hi,
this is BlockBerryCreative.

We are pleased to announce our position on the issues related to the girl of the month, which is currently spreading online.

First, we will do our best to prevent further victims by clarifying the content relationship related to the issue.

Please be advised that the allegations made are different from the facts.

Then, there should be no more indiscriminate spread.

In addition, we inform you that we will take all possible actions to the extent possible in case of damaging the image and reputation of an artist with unfounded false information.

Finally, please refrain from reporting speculatively based on unconfirmed one sided claims.

Thank you.

i know a whole mega post could be made with the amount of idols being accused but soojin and the loona girls are the only ones i looked into since i'm a fan.

i'm honestly surprised they responded.

as for the accusations themselves i did kind of believe it. orbits were saying it didn't matter because she was only 11 but i still feel like anyone can apologize for causing harm to others no matter what age.
for the most part, it just sounded like she was an annoying/aggressive kid. Hopefully if the accuser made this whole thing up, they can stop now that bbc is threatening legal action.
I was thinking of making one, especially with Hyuna being dragged into it as well

Damn, her too. What it’s happening these days? Everyone is being accused.

from what i've read, it's a mix of naver soon getting effectively rid of its real time search ranking and the case with the lee twins, who played volleyball for the sk national team & were dropped from both that and their club after a bullying scandal. i haven't read a ton about their case but they threatened to stab one of their classmates & from the posts i've seen, there was more than one person to accuse them of it too

was there even a post about the accusations? i haven't seen what they actually are.

it varies depending on the severity of what was allegedly done of course, but in general i don't see the point when middle/high school things are dragged up. i was bullied as a kid and it really hurt then, but now... i'm grown and so are those people. i would never assume anything about them based on what they did to me then. nor would i want them to apologize, that would just feel weird and unnecessary.
BUT, if someone was a victim of really severe bullying, i can see why something like this would bother them... but it still seems like a personal thing to me? it's not the same as a grown adult abusing someone.

ah sorry i should've also put in more information about the bullying itself, it was briefly mentioned in the post for soojin in the comment section

i know koreaboo is awful but this is the only article solely about her
https://www.koreaboo.com/news/loona-chu-bullying-accusation-agency-uncontactable/

to summarize she stole a classmates pen and denied it when confronted, was also super rough like pulling people's hair and then this Chuu allegedly also told OP that they smelled and told OP to wash their hair, causing them to end up showering three times a day out of trauma.

i wish someone who's actually korean and knowledgeable about the political situation would shine some light on the veracity of the idea that these rumours are being used as a distraction from politics. This statement is used so much and so often, and is being thrown around now as well, i'd really like to know what's actually th etruth.
international kpop fans claim it's a media cover-up every time their faves get into scandals lol

Wtf is going on? 2021 coming hard
Doesn't seem as hard as Soojins but nevertheless an apology is always good
Never judge a book by his cover
it's hilarious to see people rushing to either deny, make excuses or throw out the "they could have changed" card every single time these issues hit the new lol, not saying they can't btw but even if one is a changed person now that does not warrant pulling a rug over their past actions. what about the potential victim's years of suffering and prolonged effect on their psyche ? who cares if the bullies 'didn't even really mean it'? their victims sure felt the effects all the same anyway 🙄 how about instead of 'maybe the bullies have changed' we have 'maybe even in your early teens that's enough brain development to decide to NOT be a bully' lol
I can somewhat understand staying neutral till there are more concrete news but fact is most people don't stay neutral, they pick a side whether they realise it or not and it's usually their favs LOL

and saying people shouldn't be judged by what they did as a teenager is also extra dismissive, given that those are the formative years and for most would determine one's path and opportunities , being abused by peers at that age stays with you for life and there are about 1001 other factors at hand too but if you're an adult saying this is just 'teenagers' things and THEN wonder why actions aren't taken when teens make plea for help...don't you see the mindset you're propagating?

by the way, teen bullies have straight up murdered and sexually abused their peers before, should we also not judge them because they're young and stupid? you'd not dismiss someone sexual harassment claim if its 'only' being touched inappropriately vs assault , why is 'only' being bullied in middle/high school any different lol.

AND idols debut in their late teens these days, so these incidents weren't even THAT far removed from them being a public figure, it's not been that long, why should one be judged for their past actions? because otherwise the message you're sending is one can be an absolute pos and that would have 0 barriers to them succeeding in a field that's reliant on the public's goodwill and scrutiny lol.

i feel like too many people take it too personally when their favs are accused of being a bad person that's why they go out of their way to 'defend' them because them being accused of being a bad person is by association the fans being accused of being complicit for their prior support , like it's really okay, celebs sell an image and if you bought into that image it's totally fine and not a personal taint on you for supporting an asshole since you couldn't have possibly known 🤷‍♂️ now if you were one of those leaving hate comments at potential victims or trying to downplay the situation however...i can only laugh lol

For real, I don't understand people saying they were just kids that that time, it's all in the past~. Some of these idols debut at 14 and the average age is 15-16 nowadays, and if they were bullies, it is likely they were during their trainee days, or kept that same mentality during trainee days (further exacerbated with the competitive cut throat environment of idol training).

Yikes there’s a lot of stuff coming out
Things like this are always so hard to make sense of bc there’s usually not a lot of hard proof one way or the other and it just comes down to how credible or corroborated the claims are or aren’t and everyone feels differently about how they should be received. Personally I feel like, as with most things, the truth is usually going to be somewhere in the middle. I don’t doubt at all there are a lot of former asshole kids in the industry and yeah some of them were probably hardcore bullies/straight up iljin but there’s also a good chance that some of this stuff is embellished or even outright fabricated. People who go so far as to publicize this stuff usually have an axe to grind and there are definitely crazy antis out there stirring up shit. But if anyone was indeed truly abusive to other kids, they deserve to have that aired publicly and be judged for it accordingly and apologize to whoever is necessary. I just wish there was a more fair, reliable discourse about it but I don't know if that's realistically possible.
apparently the accuser took it back/said they exaggerated? https://twitter.com/lunatictheworld/status/1364202927020118017
uuuugh i hope they weren't forced to retract because they were threatened by the agency or by fans.

wish she would just apologize, like others said even if she was just a little kid that person seems to have carried her words for years. but i think if any apology ever happens it won't be a public one. little kids can be cruel, anyone who has been to a school knows this lol it's true that this can be a result of several things and kids that lash out do it because of other personal issues, but it doesn't diminish the impact this has on the other kids. from what i've been seeing though it seems a big issue is that teachers simply don't do anything.. hope this wave of accusations etc changes that even if a little.
Now that BBC is planning to sue and the person that made the allegations has backtracked, I guess we'll never know (at least not anytime soon) if the statements were true, exaggerated or just plain false :/ if they were true I really hope Chuu actually reflects on her behaviour, recognizes the damage she inflicted to this person, and has changed for the better.

The allegations against Hyunjin were way worse (assaulting someone for 10 min) but they turned out to be fabricated, and actually she was the one who turned out to be a victim of bullying when she was younger :( I hope this whole situation didn't shake her too much.

That being said, all fandoms have behaved horribly during this debacle. Dismissing the effects of bullying, the bullying itself, "clearing" searches of their bias, blaming the victims for being bullied by "cute/sweet" people, and other bs. I wish I could say most are just pre-teens or teens, but I've also seen people in their twenties being flippant about this. We do not know these people. I know Chuu and the other Loona members have always had good comments about their attitudes from staff and crew of shows, varieties and photoshoots, but that really doesn't prove anything about their life before they became idols.
apparently the accuser wrote an apology letter in which they stated that everything was fabricated? and sure, they could've done it after getting pressured by the company, but i still don't think lumping all the cases together is productive. they should be all examined individually. knetz also immediately sided with hyuna after her statement so it really does depend.

ifans have this habit of either immediately siding with idols and bending over backwards to defend them or lumping all the cases together as if there aren't layers to them lol. calling someone a loser once isn't the same as verbally harassing them for a long period of time, and if physical/sexual assault is involved? no apology saving you from that.

Been watching from the sidelines for this.

It’s hard to stay neutral given how Hyunjin got accussed of literal physical assault, but it turned out she was the one who got bullied. Chuu also got a lot of people (classmates) defending her from the get go, but those posts got buried under the accusation posts; my guess being that it went down that way given how popular she is getting these last weeks.

What pisses me off, is that it takes only one asshole with a grudge making untrue and malicious claims to ruin it for everyone else. I have no idea whether Chuu’s case is true or not, but given the info that I’ve gotten, I’m cautiously supporting Jiwoo this time.

One thing I’m the most disappointed in is the fandom. Excluding twitter stan, who always do the most, the fandom showed some ugly colors during this whole debacle. They’ve always prided themselves on “not being like the other fandoms”, but all that went to shit. How hard is it to understand that it’s not wrong to want to support an idol, especially in the midst of questionable cirmustances, but to dogpile on a possible victim like they did is despicable.
“ not being like the other fandoms”

Yea it’s a lie they were basically telling themselves :/ they want to differentiate themselves and feel some superiority to compensate for something lacking in their life imo, but at the end of the day all these fandoms are the same.
