Poster Who Accused THE BOYZ Sunwoo of School Violence Admits the Rumors are False
On Sunday, Mar. 28, the netizen who accused THE BOYZ Sunwoo of being a perpetrator of school violence and bullying has shared a handwritten apology, in which they reveal that the rumors are false.
Their whole letter reads:
"Hello. I am the user who posted about THE BOYZ Sunwoo being a school bully.
First of all, I would like to apologize sincerely to Sunwoo, the members of THE BOYZ, the company, and the fans.
During our school days, I would listen to stories from a friend about Sunwoo and started harboring bad feelings and prejudices against him. I did not even ask my friend whether those stories were true and immediately believed in them. I had focused my hatred towards an irrelevant place. I am now self-reflecting on the last five years that I had spent hating on Sunwoo.
I have checked all the information to find out the truth. I discovered that the posts I had created accusing him of school bullying and assaulting his girlfriend were all rumors and clearly false allegations. Having made a post without properly thinking about the consequences is my fault.
I am so sorry for causing harm to Sunwoo, his company, and his fans without the proper information. I promise that nothing like this will ever happen again, and I will continue to support and hope for the happiness of Sunwoo and THE BOYZ moving forward. I apologize."
To prove it was really them, the user shared another photo of their middle school yearbook to confirm their identity.
