According to a Korean media report, Son Seok Gu was accused by a classmate from his middle school in Daejon.
The user alleged, “Son Seok Gu only picked the weaker ones to harass.” The accuser further added a graphic description stating, he physically assaulted them with ‘slippers,’ and even strangled the victims, hitting the back of their heads.
The netizen claimed: “I’ve had a heavy heart due to the shock of the incident and for having been a bystander instead of helping the victim as a witness. So when I saw Son Seok Gu appear on TV, I couldn’t help but be enraged. I am writing this in order to not be a bystander this time.”
The user explained that the victim tried to talk about the experience in high school, but the school bully case got ‘covered up.’
