On April 7, one user from an online community platform uploaded a screenshot of a conversation revealing(?) Hyunjin's past. The conversation essentially reads as the following:
Person 1: To talk about me, I think it'll take too long. I'll let you know after my class. All of his close friends already know about his character and acknowledged it.
Person 2: Okay thank you. Let me know when you're comfortable.
Person 1: And he fought a girl 1 one 1.
Person 2: Hul, with a girl?
Person 1: In a private chat, apparently there were talks of him telling the girl, "Just go sell your body, you b*tch." He also used to smoke in middle school.
Person 2: But by looking at his age, he's a high school student. I guess he wasn't a trainee back in middle school?
Person 1: Yes, he probably went to audtions in his last year of middle school.
Person 1: So at first, I ignored him but he asked me again if I was dating that guy again. So when I told him it was none of his business, he suddenly said, "B*tch, are you crazy? Do you want to get hit?". He was yelling as if he was going to hit me which led to other students holding him back.
Person 2: Hul his character...
Person 1: When I got into the last year of middle school, I ended up breaking up with that boy I was dating. Hwang Hyunjin came around lunch time, and a crowd of male students formed to curse me out TT. Out of all the boys, there was one student who talked ill of my parents and I cried on the spot. At that time, Hwang Hyunjin sat in front of me and laughed at me while just looking at me lol" Person 2: Hwang Hyunjin's friends are something else...
Person 1: Hwang Hyungjin's friends had absolutely no business but they all of sudden they started to curse me out on Facebook and said some really harsh stuff like I'm a rag and such.
Person 2: Hul okay...
