Person Who Made Recent Claims About APRIL’s Naeun Apologizes And States Everything Was Fake
A netizen (hereafter referred to as “A”) who made claims that they were the subject of school bullying by APRIL’s Naeun in elementary school has now posted a public apology and stated their claims were fake.
On July 22, “A” posted on an online community that they had been friends with Naeun in elementary school but was bullied by Naeun and another friend. “A” stated that they were still affected by memories of that time and wanted an apology from Naeun. The post has since been deleted.
In response, Naeun’s agency DSP Media denied the allegations and stated they would be taking legal action against the rumors that began to spread rapidly.
On July 24, “A” took to an online community with a handwritten apology, revealing that everything they had claimed about Naeun was fabricated. They also included personal information identifying themselves as the writer of the original post. Their apology reads as follows:
I am writing this to take responsibility for the post I made on Nate Pann on July 22, 2020. All of the claims related to school bullying and APRIL’s Naeun are fake, and the content I posted about has nothing to do with me. I sincerely apologize to APRIL’s Naeun and fans for causing harm by creating this rumor. Once again, I apologize for causing harm.
APRIL is currently preparing for their upcoming comeback, which will take place on July 29. DSP Media denied rumors about the comeback being pushed back and clarified that Naeun had sat out dance practice on July 23 in consideration of her well-being.
