On February 22, 2021, an alleged victim stepped up to accuse THE BOYZ‘s Sunwoo of school violence, sexual harassment, and date violence. The alleged victim included a photo of their school graduation album as proof that they were indeed a fellow schoolmate.
The OP claims that Sunwoo denied previous school violence allegations when he was in fact a part of the controversy. They claimed that he often insulted students with sexually geared jokes or insulting other students’ families.
Sunwoo-ya, it was you in your ask.fm controversies. Why did you make the ridiculous explanation that it was your friends that did it? Anyone who went to the same middle school would know. In a school that’s basically full of trash, he went around making sex jokes and jokes involving others’ families. It seems that you still haven’t gotten a grip on yourself and whenever controversies arise, I always think you sure haven’t changed. That’s why I hate to see you even more.

They went on to claim that Sunwoo physically assaulted an ex-girlfriend and partook in underage drinking and smoking.
When you were in your first year of middle school, you dated XX and assaulted her on a date, so she had to go around school with bruises on her body. Your friends told a girl in our class that on her birthday they would do XX on her XX and called her a XXX. You just laughed beside them. I remember everything. You didn’t attend classes and went to smoke outside of school, and you guys gathered to drink whenever you guys felt like it and talked so dirtily that I can’t even say it. Is it not considered school violence just because you didn’t directly use physical violence? Even after 5 years, when I run into your friends by coincidence I get so scared, and when they show up on my socials as recommended friends my hands tremble.

The accusations continued as follows.
When you transferred schools to play soccer, I was able live a little better. But then a girl who was used to hang around with you, suddenly came and told me that you had entered LOEN Entertainment. She told me that you also passed an audition at YG Entertainment but thought it would take too long to debut so you went with LOEN. Would you know how I felt then? Is it ok for someone like you to receive lots of love, hear you are a filial son, and live happily? I don’t know if you have such a right to.
The male alumni shielded you saying that it was cool that you’re handsome and you smoke and drank. But the girls aren’t like that. Many were discussing if they should make this public before you debuted. Everyone said the same thing, that they were afraid of getting sued by you if they did that. I feel the same too. But now, it’s too hard for me to see you getting loved.
If you really want to be loved, admit all that you did from now on. Just because you search up posts on your controversies one by one and delete them, it doesn’t make the way you smoked in our school corners, the way you committed date violence, the way you sexually harassed us, sexually assaulted us, go away. This post will get removed too soon right? It’s scary.
Sunwoo’s agency has responded that they are “checking up on the matter“.
