ZE:A‘s Park Hyung Sik confessed that he was bullied during his trainee days and that he struggled with depression as a result.
On the August 10 broadcast of SBS‘s “Healing Camp,” Park Hyung Sik appeared as a guest. During the show, he is asked, “What are some things that happened during your trainee years?”
Park Hyung Sik begins, “This was when I was under a different company.” He then continues, “Since I was close with the manager who cast me, to the other trainees, I guess it seemed like I was sucking up to him. At some point, they stopped eating with me, and they wouldn’t respond to me even if I tried to talk to them.”
He says, “I think that was when I realized, ‘I just have to do well myself.’ This was when I was a sophomore in high school. I had depression.”
