(G)I-DLE singer Soo-jin has issued an official statement sharing the results of her lawsuit against bullying allegations made against her last year.In August 2021, Soo-jin left the K-pop girl group amid bullying allegations dating back to February that year.

Several alleged former classmates took to online forums to accuse Soo-jin of being a bully during her schooling days. Prior to her departure from (G)I-DLE, both the idol and her then-label, CUBE Entertainment, denied the claims.However, several months following the singer’s departure from the girl group, CUBE Entertainment announced that it had terminated its contract with Soo-jin, writing in a statement that “the [police] investigation determined that the individuals who made the comments were found not guilty of spreading false information”. “We respect the results of the police investigation, and we apologise for causing concern to many people,” the label wrote.In a new statement published on September 8 from Soo-jin’s legal representative Choi Seung-hwan, via Chosun Ilbo, another investigation that took place after Soo-jin – referred to in the statement by her birth name Seo Soo-jin – reportedly filed a criminal complaint against the original person who published the allegations.“Seo Soo-jin has never assaulted nor extorted money or goods from her classmates, and is thereby unable to acknowledge such allegations or offer apologies concerning these allegations,” Choi wrote, before adding that in Soo-jin’s first year of middle school (which is when the alleged bullying took place), “Seo Soo-jin was found not guilty by the school’s Autonomous Committee For School Violence Countermeasures”.Instead, she was found to have been a victim of bullying, perpetrated by her.
