Because he continues to get malicious comments on accusations of being a bully, Kim Garam finally feels mental pressure. That’s what made Kim Garam decided to go on hiatus.
The agency finally released their full statement regarding the bullying scandal that was pointed at Kim Garam. On Friday (20/5), HYBE and Source Music revealed a series of points stating that the LE SSERAFIM member had been slandered.
Even so, the agency also confirmed that Kim Garam had misbehaved with his schoolmates such as cursing and threatening. Regarding this, the agency sincerely apologized on behalf of the 2005-born idol.
We hope to resolve this matter without publishing the exact details of the matter, because many minors were involved. However during the days leading up to Kim Garam’s debut, many false and malicious rumors spread uncontrollably, and Kim Garam’s involvement in The Committee for Combating School Violence was also published unilaterally,” the agency said.
Therefore, we have no choice but to respond to the accusations with details of the situation, and we deeply regret this fact. Furthermore, we would like to take this opportunity to apologize for Kim Garam’s wrong actions and words in the past.
“Even if he confronts other students to defend an injured friend, Kim Garam admits that cursing and threatening his classmates is wrong,” the agency added. Kim Garam is said to be trying to move forward even though he is also a victim of bullying.
“Despite being a victim through bullying at school and through cyber bullying after his freshman year in high school, Kim Garam continues to move forward towards his future and dreams,” the agency continued.
Because he continues to get malicious comments on accusations of being a bully, Kim Garam finally feels mental pressure. That’s what made Kim Garam decided to take a temporary hiatus from promotional activities for LE SSERAFIM.
“We have decided after discussing with Kim Garam that he will take a temporary break from promotions to focus on healing himself mentally and emotionally. Until Kim Garam recovers, LE SSERAFIM will temporarily promote as 5 members,” said the agency.
