Red Velvet's Irene accused of bullying by former SM Entertainment trainee Mone Fukuhara

AKP STAFF

Former SM Entertainment trainee Mone Fukuhara has alleged she was bullied by Red Velvet's Irene.

Amid the controversy surrounding Irene's admitted behavior towards a fashion editor, a former SM Entertainment trainee's post has been making its way around Korean internet communities. In the post, former trainee Mone Fukuhara states, "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.

According to what netizens are saying, Mone Fukuhara is believed to have been 14 years of age at the time she was a trainee, while Irene was around 22.

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.

Mone Fukhara is currently active as a beauty YouTuber.

Honestly I do believe that Irene did do something wrong to certain people and she needs to reflect and figure out how she can make amends with them.

However! I feel like some of the later accusations are suspicious. Lots of them are anons and vague claims that she was terrible to them with no real details or evidence. Because of the current situation anyone can say anything negative about her and everyone will believe it. Everyone rn is witch hunting her. Why NOT use your real account? Everyone who hates her will support you.

Mone specifically has specifically shaded SM’s training before. If she was bold enough to do that I wonder why she didn’t directly shade Irene especially since she could’ve done if before RV got popular.

There are actual credible people using their personal accounts to defend her with real photographic evidence. People are accusing them of speaking after being paid off... I looked at KR sites with google translate and hardly any articles are talking about it, yet they are so interested in every single anon claim.

I’m not saying she’s 100% innocent but I think that suspicion should be aimed at both sides.

Oh btw Allkpop. We haven’t forgotten that you’re the site that sexually harassed and bullied Ailee.
