Model and actress, Kang Seung Hyun recently faced school violence controversy following a netizen’s claim that she committed mob violence in middle school.
A netizen recently took to a popular Korean online community and exposed Kang Seung Hyun’s supposedly violent past.
The model and actress from “Partners for Justice” and “My Holo Love” was a leader in mob violence. I was a victim of mob violence in my second year of middle school.
The netizen then went on to describe the details of how Kang Seung Hyun assaulted her and her friends.
Someone stole my friend’s snack, and I asked who they thought they were to act like that. The leader, Ms. B asked me if I wanted to get beat up on my own or if we wanted to get beat up together. Once I made my friend leave, she hit my face over and over. My glasses broke, and many students were watching.
According to the netizen, Ms. B approached her on another day during recess and committed even more mob violence
She told me to meet up with her after my exam. She told me to decide how many times I wanted to get hit. 2 or 3 other girls held me down while Ms. B punched me in my stomach.
The netizen expressed just how much pain Ms. B caused her even to this day, and that she can’t stand to see her on TV.
I was watching TV one day and saw her on a supermodel competition. I felt like it was so unfair that I couldn’t fall asleep. She kept getting popular, so I had to keep seeing her even though I didn’t want to. I’m trying to get my life together, but it’s hard. I hope no more victims like me arise. I hope other victims like me heal.
Soon after the post went viral, Kang Seung Hyun’s agency denied the accusations and stated that they will be taking legal action.
The speculations about Kang Seung Hyun going around in online communities are false. We’ve confirmed that the contents of the post have no relation to Kang Seung Hyun. Our agency will be taking legal action against the false rumors being spread online.

In response, the netizen stated, “I knew she would come off like this“, and added a chat shared with a friend of hers confirming her claims.
I knew she would come off like this. I added another testifier, and I’ll handle everything else according to the law.
The additional testimony reads as follows:
Friend: There’s no way what we experienced was false unless my memory was fabricated somehow. I remember it so clearly. I even remember the name of the snack. The small one they sold at the stationary store.
Netizen: I wanted to do this on my own if possible. I’m sorry. Since I work in the legal field, I got everything ready. But I feel like it’s so unfair. I can’t just die and leave my kid behind. I thought I’d be okay, but I keep seeing her. My hands shake and my heart sinks.
Friend: I didn’t know you were so traumatized. You said you were okay and acted normal, so I don’t know what to say. I’m sorry I didn’t know about this.
