THE BOYZ’s Agency Releases Statement Denying Violence Accusations Against Sunwoo
Cre.ker Entertainment has responded following allegations made about THE BOYZ member Sunwoo.
On February 22, an online post was written by someone who made accusations about Sunwoo’s actions in middle school.
Warning: descriptions of allegations of sexual violence.
The post creator (hereafter referred to as “A”) said that Sunwoo had made sexual comments and said insults about other’s family members. A said that Sunwoo had committed dating violence against his girlfriend in the first year of middle school and that the girlfriend had attended school with bruises on her body. They also stated that Sunwoo had laughed next to his friends when they made sexually harassing comments about a female student in their class. A wrote, “You didn’t come to class and you’d leave the school to smoke cigarettes, and you’d often get together to drink alcohol and make dirty jokes that I couldn’t personally repeat. Is it not school violence if you just don’t directly commit violence?”
They also wrote, “Even if you search for all the posts on your controversies and take them down, it doesn’t erase the fact that you smoked in the corner at school, committed dating violence, sexually harassed us, and committed sexual violence against us.”
On February 23, THE BOYZ’s agency issued the following statement:
