C9 Entertainment cancels Kim Se Hoon's debut in C9BOYZ due to school violence issue


Kim Se Hoon will not be debuting as a member of C9BOYZ.

For the past few weeks, C9 Entertainment has been revealing profiles of their new boy group members. Following the release of Kim Se Hoon's profile photo and video, several netizens claimed Kim Se Hoon was part of school violence. 

C9 Entertainment announced to look into the issue, then on April 2, the agency announced their final decision to exclude Kim Se Hoon from C9BOYZ. 

The agency stated, "We did confirm Kim Se Hoon engaged in actions that a student shouldn't have engaged in when he was in the second year of middle school. However, it's also true that many posts have turned out to be false or exaggerated."

Breaking windows, damaging school ceiling, throwing chairs, and more were not actions done by Kim Se Hoon alone but by a group of students that included Kim Se Hoon, according to C9 Entertainment. Kim Se Hoon also did not participate in all of these violent acts. 

The teacher of the time also testified that Kim Se Hoon was not a student leading school violence and the issue "is not worth getting this big." However, after a discussion with Kim Se Hoon, his parents, and members, Kim Se Hoon decided to step down from the debut group and reflect on his actions. 

Lastly, C9 Entertainment announced they will be taking legal action if false information continues to spread regarding Kim Se Hoon. 

Meanwhile, C9BOYZ will be debuting as a group of 5 with Bae Jin YoungSeunghunHyunsuk, and Yonghee.

What he did was wrong 100% but then again they are middle schoolers. This happens everywhere, they always act so 'cool' and 'badass'. When I was in middle school people threw chairs around too, but they did it where no one would get hurt and for jokes. Plus a lot of those chairs were broken anyways. I agree with C9 though. A lot of it was exaggerated and that isn't okay at all. I'm glad they took action and Sehoon decided to reflect. Though I don't believe in criticizing and judging someone by one action. I threw Lincoln Logs at my sister, I stole her Time Turner (HP) when I was little as well (gave it back). Does that make me an asshole and deserve to be punished with a huge sentence or step down from wanting to be someone in life (celeb wise)? No.

That probably is the most stupid statement I have ever read on the internet. Someone is being held responsible for "throwing chairs' and other minor offenses in MIDDLE SCHOOL of all places. The more I read about Korea, the more thankful I was born and raised in America.
