Initially, the male idol’s rumor of being a school bully started from a now-deleted post, claiming that Mingyu was once an “iljin” or delinquent. According to the supposed victim, Mingyu would throw a soda cap, asked for money, and would smoke and drink despite being underage.
Shortly after, Pledis Entertainment refuted the allegations and avowed that the proofs and accusations were “unfounded.”
However, also on Feb. 26, Mingyu was slapped with another issue related to being a school bully when a different netizen claimed that Mingyu bullied disabled women during his school days.
The author accused Mingyu of sexually harassing a friend who had autism when he was in middle school by throwing trash or knocking on his desk to stimulate him, and grabbing the chest of his classmate.
On top of that, another discloser who claims to have been knocked out by Mingyu after hearing a sexual joke released a copy of her psychiatric medical record, adding credibility to the claim.
“The victims do not want any compensation, such as financial compensation or apology. However, the article is written in the hope that the damage they suffered will not be considered false. If there is anything else I want, it will be a sincere reflection of the perpetrator and the fans who blocked the victims’ voice on his side,” said the writer, explaining why they decided to disclose the alleged school bullying of the K-pop star.
Meanwhile, despite allegations, many CARATs (fandom of SEVENTEEN) believe that Mingyu is a victim of false accusations. Alumni, teachers, and people who know Mingyu personally are defend the idol by testifying that he was actually a kind and friendly student.
Pledis Entertainment’s statement is yet to be released.
