Nam Joo Hyuk has been linked to school bullying.
The Days, an online publication, first highlighted concerns about Nam Joo-hyuk’s alleged school violence on the 20th of June.
Informant A, who reportedly attended middle and high school with Nam Joo-hyuk, allegedly stated, “I experienced school violence for six years in middle and high school.
Along with alleging daily torture and violence, he also claimed to have called a so-called “bread shuttle.”
Person A provided an explanation for the revelation by stating that “the embarrassing 6 years came to mind again when such a Nam Joo-hyuk appeared in a drama as a pure and innocent male lead.”
The legal team representing actor Nam Joo-hyuk denied the charges of school violence and warned to take legal action.
In response to Nam Joo-hyuk’s claim of school violence, Management Soop, Nam Joo-hyuk’s agency, declared in a statement on the 20th of June, “After confirming the facts with the actor, all of the information is not true.”
The agency declared, “We will submit a charge sheet against the media reporter who initially reported it and the anonymous source, and we will ask the media arbitration council for corrective information.”
Additionally, they issued a strong legal warning: “We will take strict legal responsibility for all acts of posting unilateral claims online without a clear fact-checking process.”
Meanwhile, Nam Joo Hyuk won hearts of millions from his recent drama ‘Twenty Five Twenty One‘ where he portrays Baek Yi-Jin the eldest son of a rich south Korean family but his life changes from being rich to poor. He works part-time such as delivering newspapers and other handy works. He later became a sports reporter for the broadcast station.
