Actress Seo Shin Ae opened up following rumors she was bullied by (G)I-DLE's Soojin in school.
After multiple statements by witnesses who say Seo Shin Ae was bullied by a group that Soojin was involved with during their school days, the actress took to Instagram to comment on the matter. She wrote:
"Your brilliant spring was a cold winter and bitter long night for me.
At the end of your summer, which seemed to last forever, I wondered why it was still winter. I tried to melt the snow in my heart and forget the piercing presence. My winter was not made alone, but I always needed a quiet fight alone to overcome it. I met friends and started doing things I had postponed. Though the occasional pale wind cracked, I was grateful just for this much.
Though it may not be easy to think about past seasons, I can't forget scenes from the past seasons. The temperature of the day, the smell of the day, the behavior of the day. I also thought about quietly cheering for your season, burying the memories in tears.
People's hearts are so selfish the melted snow froze and became icy every time.
That's why I even blamed my own ruined season. I thought that I should've tried to overcome a little more and try to act like nothing was wrong a little more. The more I did that, the more I felt jealous of your seasons because human's minds are so sly.
Though this fierce winter is not beautiful, my plum blossoms gave off a clear scene in the cold winter atmosphere. I felt too sorry for myself to fall down like this. I felt sorry for the people who shine the sun in my season. I have no reason to stay in winter anymore. Let's break the ice. If we can't melt it, let's break it down.
Only then did the sun feel lighter after a really long winter night. Looking around, even if the sharp wind blows, the ground, which had been stagnant, starts to harden little by little due to the melted snow. Soon a young spring sprout will sprout.
I want you, who might be still having a painful winter somewhere, that I am also shining a little sunshine for you. Because you're also living a truly glorious life."
