Source Music denied the school bullying rumors surrounding LE SSERAFIM’s Kim Garam.
On the 6th, they released an official statement that read, “Since yesterday, suspicions have been raised about the member through some online communities. And we’ve made efforts to confirm the facts.”
“The accusations have maliciously contorted the problems that surfaced while she (Kim Garam) made friends after joining the middle school. Contrary to the claims, we have confirmed through a third party that the member was actually a victim of school violence such as malicious rumors and cyberbullying,” the label added. “Also, we’ve confirmed that all rumors of her ever being a trainee at a different label or rumors that inside documents from HYBE Labels getting leaked are entirely false.”
Source Music then stressed that Kim Garam is a minor and that they plan to proceed with legal action against any slender or rumors.
However, people are still showing doubts about Kim Garam as the label failed to explain the photos that started the whole mess.
