An increasing number of Korean celebrities have been embroiled in controversy recently over their checkered past as bullies in school, following revelations from their old teammates or schoolmates. Starting with actor Jo Byung Gyu, allegations of school violence have been pouring in, including those against girl group (G)I-DLE member Soojin, Seventeen’s Mingyu, The Boyz’s Sunwoo, HyunA, Stray Kids’ Hyunjin, Loona’s Chuu, MONSTA X’s Kihyun, actress and former K-pop girl group I.O.I member Kim So Hye, singer Jin Hae Seong, and Itaewon Class actor Kim Dong Hee. Currently, they deny the allegations and say they will take legal action.

The recent series of school bullying accusations against celebrities have surfaced after twin sisters & pro volleyball stars - Lee Jae-Yeong and Lee Da-Yeong, were indefinitely suspended by their team last week over allegations that they had physically, verbally, and emotionally abused their teammates during their middle school days.

The Internet has been pretty divided on the allegations. While some felt that the accusations may be true as the users have attached various descriptions which seem like the "proof" of it, others have stated that the allegations are a ploy to distract fans. Some netizens are even claiming these, suddenly cropping up, allegations against celebrities as a cover-up for something major.

It is not very clear whether these situations are orchestrated or there lies some hidden truth behind these "rumors".
