Former APRIL Member Hyunjoo Talks About Current Situation + Expresses Wish For Everyone’s Happiness
Former APRIL member Hyunjoo has taken to Instagram to share a new post.
In February 2021, Hyunjoo’s brother and her high school acquaintance shared posts online alleging that Hyunjoo had been bullied by the other APRIL members. DSP Media denied the allegations and took legal action against Hyunjoo and her family and friends. In April, Hyunjoo released her first personal statement about the allegations, which DSP Media again denied. Chaewon and Yena were the first APRIL members to personally respond to the allegations. Hyunjoo took legal action against a former DSP Media employee, and DSP Media’s defamation case against Hyunjoo’s acquaintance was dismissed by the police. Recently, Naeun and Jinsol personally denied the allegations, while Chaewon also shared a new post.
On June 18, Hyunjoo posted the following:
Hello, this is Lee Hyunjoo.
First of all, to briefly share my current situation, my younger brother who was sued is still a student, so our entire family is focusing on responding to the lawsuit. Also, although I have not been contacted by the police yet, I learned through a news report that I have been sued also, so it seems we will have to prepare for my lawsuit also. I am well aware that many people are showing concern and support. I sincerely thank you. I have been responding well and think I’ll be able to continue doing well.
Today I am writing because there is an aspect I am a bit concerned about. As you are aware, there was a lot that happened recently, and I know better than anyone that it’s difficult to endure personal attacks or malicious comments. Although I am currently very healthy and doing well, seeing the recent situation, I feel worried because it reminds me of the times when I was unhealthy physically and mentally. I do not want the pain I received to also be given to others.
Anyone can take wrong actions. However, if those who took those actions admit they were wrong and work to correct themselves, I think they can be forgiven and those actions can be called mistakes. Therefore I earnestly request that personal attacks and malicious comments about the [APRIL] members and acquaintances come to a halt.
Until now, I have worked to live with gratitude for even the smallest bits of happiness. Everyone has the right to be happy, and I hope that can be achieved.
Maybe especially because it’s raining today, but various worries are on my mind. I hope everyone has a happy Friday, and thank you for reading my rambling post.
