On February 28, a person claiming to be Hyunjoo's brother made a post that says Hyunjoo left April because she was bullied by the members to the point where she got suicidal. Hyunjoo's brother also stated that Rachel and Chaekyung aren't involved in this. After this, April has been wrapped up in more rumors.
Netizens are calling out DSP, as they are suing one of their own artists, making it look more serious and worse. As DSP is still not making it clear, Korean netizens started digging up past videos of April.
On YouTube, several Korean communities uploaded videos proving that Hyunjoo was left out, and the members sometimes ignored her.
The Korean community also mentioned that most of the time, it's always April Naeun and Jinsol who went extreme.
AOA - Jimin seolhyun
April - Naeun Jinsol
In the above video, you can see that the other members formed their own group and are eating, talking, and enjoying while even when Hyunjoo is sitting at the center, she is being ignored and left out.
In the next video, the members gathered up and joined hands, but when Hyunjoo (in red) joined, they suddenly stopped what they were doing and stepped back.
In the last video, Naeun is seen getting up and feeding the members, but she ignored Hyunjoo, who is just sitting right next to her.
The Korean community also found a video of Hyunjoo crying while performing their Tinkerbell song, it looks like she is trying to hold on, but she can't.
In the above video (Date unknown), Hyunjoo had uploaded lyrics on IG story of listening to Bars and Melody - Hopeful.
The lyrics are -
Please help me God, I feel so alone
I'm just a kid, I can't take it on my own
I've cried so many tears, yeah, writing this song
Trying to fit in. Where do I belong?
I wake up every day, don't wanna leave my home
Moreover, you can notice the members staring with a disgusted look at Hyunjoo while she is speaking.
In the next video, the members are singing their song tinker bell chance by chance, but you can again notice that Hyunjoo is standing at the back alone most of the time. Also, the members are trying to push each other @1:36, @1:47 @1:58.
While some of the netizens think that these videos prove nothing and you can't make a proper judgment from these videos. Also, a lot of things can be interpreted in many ways, for example, Hyunjoo isolating herself, while others think that these videos prove a lot about their relationship with each other.
Many netizens and fans of April and Kard wonder if Somin was also bullied or not. While some say Hyunjoo's brother clearly mentioned it all started with Somin, which led to the bullying.
You be the judge; what do you think of these videos?
