Soojin admits to trying out cigarettes a few times but denies the general accusations + one of the accusers says they'll post more

AKP STAFF

Soojin posted in response to the rumors of bullying against her.

She wrote, 

Hello, this is Soojin. I'm writing after thinking about this a lot. When I was a student, I always stood out and it's true that bad rumors always followed me around. I did dress unfitting for a student and it's true that I tried out cigarettes a few times as well.
I had my problems when I was young, but I haven't smoked since then. I believe that even though I tried to fix myself, there are things that I did that are embarassing and that I should be sorry for, and that's why this happened. 
But I do have things that I want to say. I always let bad rumors pass, but I want to say something because my fans are haivng such a hard time.
I don't know if you'll believe me, but I'll write things as I remember them. 
I thought that I was friends with the person that posted today. I ate at her house and I even remember watching a movie with her and her older sister. The older sister that gave me advice about reporting to the police when I was receiving threatening messages from a school upperclassman, I've always been thankful to her.
I learned why she wanted to put a distance between us through that post. I remember that we fought because she broke our promise. It wasn't just once or twice and I remember being angry. I didn't know she was trying to put distance between us. So I'm embarassed, but I remember cursing her out as well. And her sister picked up the phone and scolded me. I apologized to her and hung up on her. After that, we became completely apart and had bad feelings toward each other.
But I want to clarify a few things.
First, I never used violence on her. Second, I never rode on a motorcycle. Third, I never sent a group text to bully someone. Fourth, I never stole anything, including her school uniform. Fifth, I never even talked to Seo Sin Ae. I'm sorry because I feel like this also hurt her.
I really don't remember anything about the juice incident. But I believe that I wouldn't do something like that.
I'm sorry that my personal life became a source of a problem, and I apologize to everyone who was hurt by my embarassing actions.


The poster's sister, however, wrote, in a comment that said that it looked like they'll post more since Soojin denied things, "Yes, we'll be writing. Since she can't remember."

I have to admit, this is probably one of the most direct idol apology. She addressed most if not all the accusations, admitted to her faults, and directly addressed the claims while keeping her story straight.

More and more these high school bully accusations are "revenge" and not justice. I get that bullying is a huge problem and that the effects on the victim's mental health is no joke, ptsd and other problems can last a really, really long time, but getting revenge like this is just so...petty. It's an eye for an eye. It's bullying now that they have the power to do it. The difference being: they're adults when they're doing it and their bullies were teenagers.
Spend your energy on therapy and living well yourself.
