Yoari, a contestant on 'Sing Again' denies allegations of bullying


Yoari, a contestant on JTBC's 'Sing Again,' denied the allegations of being a school bully.

Regarding the controversy over the allegations, the production team of 'Sing Again' stated, "We have confirmed with the singer herself and she has stated the allegations are not true." Currently, the production team is trying to find out the facts behind the school bully allegations.

Meanwhile, Yoari made it to the top 6 in 'Sing Again' and is set to perform live. The production team stated, "Yoari is scheduled to appear in the final of the top six contestants of 'Sing Again.'"

Earlier, a netizen posted an article in an online community claiming that Yoari was a perpetrator of school bullying. 

The netizen claimed to be from the same elementary and middle school as Yoari and stated, "She used to be a school bully and hit many kids. She dropped out of middle school because she caused issues. I can only laugh when she says she had to drop out of school because she had issues at home. She is so brazen enough to appear on tv when everyone who went to school with her and lived in our neighborhood knows her. But she hasn't changed."

The netizens continued to expose the singer by saying, "My friend who she beat was bruised all over her face. I don't remember in detail, but she told me she was beaten like a dog by Yoari." The netizen also posted a graduation photo of Yoari to prove that what she claims is true.

Meanwhile, the finals of the top six singers of 'Sing Again' will be broadcast live at 10:30 PM KST starting today.

I hope it’s not true because the last couple of people denied it and it came out true.

I don't understand why the writers of these articles on Yoari refuse to mention that the *1* netizen (not multiple like what's written here) that came out with these allegations has deleted their post and disappeared. It's annoying. The only new information in this new post is "she denied it/they're looking into it" and the rest is copy + paste from the first article ya'll made on it. Lazy lazy. Also, why not mention important information like the netizen being anonymous but still wanting people to believe they attended the same school because "here's a pic of Yoari and other classmates that may or may not be me"?

Something else I wanted to bring up again .. I find it very very hard to believe that in the 14 years Yoari has been in the spotlight, not once was she asked about her school life/upbringing? (that's apparently what triggered the netizen to write their post..) It can't be a coincidence that right when Yoari is reaching the finals on "Sing Again" they just happen to come forward and then poof...gone! once the story starts picking up attention from sites like AKP. Just saying. It all sounds very suspicious. I'm usually on the victims side because I know what it's like to be bullied but if your only proof is your word + 1 pic that includes multiple classmates that may or may not be you .. hm. Sorry for the rant but this story (and the way AKP tells it) is bothersome. ><
