Nam Joo Hyuk‘s high school classmate has come forward to defend the actor.
On June 30th, the actor’s schoolmate posted an article titled “Nam Joo Hyuk and I went to the same high school.” He explained, “I could not watch people falsely accusing my friend of school bullying by spreading groundless rumors and malicious comments.” He added, “I have never seen him displaying misbehaviors such as violence, bullying or swearing against any.”
On June 28th, the second alleged victim claimed that the celebrity frequently took his smartphone to buy in-game items and forced him to physically fight someone against his will. In response to such allegations, his classmate said, “Some of the events described in his claim are true, but only partially. Someone in our class used our homeroom teacher’s phone to buy in-game items. However, no one, including Nam Joo Hyuk, was involved in this incident.”
Lastly, his former classmate said, “I think previous reports on his school bullying were all maliciously tweaked. I would like to leave it on this note as I feel obligated to tell the truth only about the star based on what I have seen back in high school.”
