An alleged former idol trainee has accused a first-generation idol 'A' of assault.
Recently on a popular online community forum, one netizen created a post and wrote, "I am a former idol trainee and 6 years have passed but just thinking about that day makes tears drench my eyes. I was a trainee at an entertainment company where 'A', who was a first-generation idol group member, is the CEO."
According to the netizen, while having a conversation about music with company CEO 'A' back in 2016, the netizen had stated "the music [style] is old". To this, 'A' replied with curses such as, "Hey, you b***h", and slapped the netizen's right cheek 4 times, and their left cheek 2 times. Then, 'A' allegedly took off the netizen's hat and punched the back of the netizen's head 2 more times.
Following this incident, the netizen was not able to receive an apology from 'A', but was rather told that he was responsible for causing the incident to occur. The netizen then revealed that due to a fear of 'A', they terminated their contract and decided to enter South Korea's mandatory military service. The netizen then firmly stated that they would like to still receive an apology for 'A'.
Alongside the anonymous post, the netizen also uploaded a photo of their trainee days.
