JYP Entertainment confirms they met with netizen 'A' and verifies that bullying accusations against GOT7's Youngjae are false

AKP STAFF

On October 22, JYP Entertainment issued an official statement, updating fans regarding recent school bullying allegations directed toward GOT7's Youngjae.

The label stated,


"Hello, this is JYP Entertainment. We would like to provide an update regarding the recent controversy surrounding our artist Youngjae. 

We were able to hold a meeting with the individual 'A' who first made the online post about Youngjae, and although 'A' continued to make the same claims they made in the community post, they were not able to provide any basis for the claims which suggest that Youngjae engaged in school bullying. 

We notify that we will respond with strict legal action against any degradation, defamation, spread of false rumors, etc involving this incident as well as all future incidents which mock our artists' character without reason. 

Thank you."

Previously, this anonymous netizen raised school bullying allegations against Youngjae through an online community post, which has since been deleted. JYP Entertainment was also quick to respond in the development by providing Youngjae's side of the perspective

Translation: We had a meeting, we had a lawyer, and we gave them two choices- either drop it or take it to court and see who wins.


I don't mean that in a cruel way, but it is what it is. I feel like if someone had real evidence, JYP would have found out and dropped Youngjae. But they were kind enough to give this person a slap on the wrist with a warning of "If this happens again, you'll be talking to a judge about it." Hopefully if this is the truth it will die down and go back to normal, but from what's been presented it sounds like someone who he had a tiff with got bitter. Hopefully they can both move on from this.

Well, after Park Kyung's bullying controversy, which was deliberately unearthed as a smear campaign by the president of an artist he has previously accused of sajaegi, I no longer see anything trustworthy about individuals like this who suddenly pop out of nowhere and claim that they were bullied. I think they no longer call for attention "to get justice" but rather to just get settlement money and smear the alleged bully's name conveniently.
