(G)I-DLE’s Soojin, who has been swept up in bullying rumors, released an official statement through CUBE Entertainment.
The alleged victim’s older sister first released the school bullying rumors online via Instagram and online community sites. She claimed that her younger sister fell victim to Soojin’s bullying. CUBE Entertainment responded shortly after, stating that they are looking into the situation and communicating with Soojin in order to organize an official statement.
They soon followed up with an official statement where they confirmed after discussing with Soojin that she had once gotten into an argument with the alleged victim and her sister but the school bullying rumors were untrue.
Hello this is CUBE Entertainment. We’ve talked to Soojin about the online post that is circulating and she has confirmed the following: The original poster (OP) is an older sister to the alleged victim who went to the same middle school with Soojin. The OP once heard the alleged victim and Soojin argue over the phone. The OP also spoke to Soojin over the phone, also in argument.
All other claims made by the OP regarding the school bullying, however, have been confirmed as false.
