The netizen added that they wanted to get dance lessons from Rozalin as they were a fan and loved Rozalin's dance style.
Rozalin and the netizen agreed to have private dance lessons for 1.5 hours once a week for the month of April back in 2020.
However, the netizen revealed that the private dance lessons kept getting cancelled as the weeks went by. When they confronted Rozalin and asked for a refund, Rozalin allegedly refused and stated that she had already made a choreography and paid the rent for the dance studio.
According to the netizen, Rozalin only offered to refund 500,000 won (around $421 USD).
Based on the screenshots, the netizen and their parents have been trying to get in touch with Rozalin to ask for a full refund in a polite manner, as they have also never gotten proof that Rozalin had indeed already made a choreography.
However, Rozalin continued to refuse to refund the fees and even spoke informally.

Rozalin Accused of Not Returning Sponsored Items
Following the accusation of scamming dance lesson fees, Rozalin became embroiled in another accusation. On September 29, a netizen made a post on another online community platform, The Qoo, where they accused Rozalin of allegedly not returning sponsored items.
According to the post, Rozalin was given PR items a few years ago. However, it seems that Rozalin did not return the sponsored items back to the Korean PR company, Pink Rain, in the agreed return time frame.
With that, Pink Rain called out the dancer on her Instagram profile, where they left a comment under one of Rozalin's Instagram post that gave a detail of the situation.
Pink Rain's comment said, "Hello, this is Pink Rain. We can't seem to get in touch with you so we are leaving this comment. There has been no contact made the the deadline is way past overdue. We request that you return the item. If there are defects in the product or tag, we ask that you cover the cost. We ask that you complete this within the week.
