Nam Joo Hyuk‘s agency Management SOOP announced legal actions against the reporter and the anonymous source who first accused him of school violence.
Yesterday, a media outlet released an exclusive report based on an anonymous tipper who claimed to have went to school with Nam Joo Hyuk. The source stated that the actor was a member of a clique that harassed other students and that he had bullied him in school. With these allegations, people are paying attention to what Nam Joo Hyuk’s other alumni wrote last February.
“I sat next to Nam Joo Hyuk in middle school,” One of his alumni explained. “He used to have short hair and was very tall. He was a genuinely nice kid but didn’t do well in class. We hardly saw him in classes as he was on the basketball team.”
A student currently studying at the school where Nam Joo Hyuk went, stated, “The librarian is still working at the same school. According to him, Nam Joo Hyuk was very athletic, tall and popular. He said that the actor later visited the school and donated scholarship funds. His photos and autographs are still on display in the library.”
Meanwhile, Management SOOP has referred the following case to a legal advisor to take further legal action. “An attitude of “whatever if it is false” and only relying on groundless rumors online leads to the actor being branded with a scarlet letter, which the agency really cannot help but feel distressed and regrettable about,” his rep stated.
