Police drop all 7 defamation lawsuits against former April member Hyunjoo & family

AKP STAFF

According to former April member Hyunjoo's legal representative on February 23, all lawsuits filed against Hyunjoo, her family, and her acquaintances have been dropped by the police as of this day.

Previously, Hyunjoo's former group members and her former agency DSP Media filed multiple lawsuits against Hyunjoo, her younger sibling, and Hyunjoo's acquaintances for spreading false rumors on online communities, after Hyunjoo's younger sibling raised allegations that the former April member was bullied by her group during her debut days. 

As of February 23, all seven lawsuits filed against Hyunjoo and party have been dropped by police without charges. Police have concluded that it is difficult to prove that the content posted on online communities by Hyunjoo and party contained "false rumors" with "malicious intentions". 

Finally, Hyunjoo's legal representative stated that any malicious attacks or false speculations surrounding Hyunjoo's case will be met with strict legal consequences.

It is one of those cases where there is little to no proof of things happening. It is like if me and a classmate was having an argument in private with no recordings and witnesses and things happened between us but there was no proof of what both of us said actually happened. I'm not saying this to take any sides, because none of us besides the ones involved knows what really happened. There is no way any of us knows. I just hope there will be peace for those involved, despite of what went down in this case.

Just here to remind that not all bullying cases are like T-ara or AOA. And that being neutral until strong proofs are provided is a good thing
