Former SM Ent. trainee Mone Fukuhara clarifies post alleging Red Velvet's Irene bullied her


Former SM Entertainment trainee Mone Fukuhara has clarified her post alleging Red Velvet's Irene bullied her in the past.

As previously reported, netizens have been discussing a former post by Mone Fukuhara amid the controversy surrounding Irene's admitted behavior towards a fashion editor. The former trainee wrote, "I still remember when I was a trainee and Joohyun unni bullied me, Seulgi unni helped me," referring to Irene's birth name and her fellow Red Velvet member Seulgi. 

She's now spoken up to clarify her post about Irene. Mone Fukuhara explained, "I'm writing this because I think there's been a little misunderstanding. When I said that she bullied me, I didn't mean that she did it constantly. I just meant that she scolded me when there was something I did that she didn't like when she didn't like it."

As previously reported, editor Kang Kook Hwa released a first-hand account of how she was mistreated by a celebrity, and many netizens speculated the person in question was Red Velvet member Irene because of the editor's hashtags "Monster" and "Psycho". Irene then personally admitted she was the idol in the post and apologized. Since then, there have been both good and bad reports of experiences with the Red Velvet member.

And this is why people shouldn’t go on full attack mode after someone says their one side of a story.

People don’t even know the definition of the word “bullying” these days, it’s far too overused. Having disagreements or being scolded by someone from time to time is not “bullying”... What the hell. What this trainee said is damaging.

That's what I was thinking: people don't know what BULLYING is. Ignorants but still very judgemental guys. Take a dictionary and think twice before commenting against a celebrity. You haters and other ignorants like you could destroy a career and life
