SM Entertainment has responded to the bullying allegation.
Recently, the Korean media Wikitree released an exclusive report claiming that NCT‘s Taeyong allegedly bullied a classmate during his middle-school days. According to the accusation outlined in the report, Taeyong and his group of friends picked on a classmate to the point of self harm.
The accusation on which the report was based, however, turned out to be false — as the original poster, Accuser A, confessed that it contained “personal comments” which cannot be verified.
While Accuser A ended up deleting the original post which turned into the Wikitree report, a former SM Entertainment trainee Minwoo posted an Instagram story against Taeyong — rekindling the accusation that Taeyong, in fact, used to be a bully.
The Instagram story featured screenshots of two Wikitree articles, both covering Taeyong’s school bullying allegation. Minwoo captioned the story with a strongly worded condemnation — claiming that the articles are true.
I’ve known him since his trainee days and all of these are true. He does have one sh*tty personality. Stop protecting him already.
Though speculation keeps building, Taeyong’s agency — SM Entertainment — is yet to respond to the allegation. Meanwhile, K-Pop fans at large remain divided on the issue, following Minwoo’s public call-out.
