“A” releases video evidence of being coerced by Nam Joo Hyuk to fight with a classmate.
Last year, Nam Joo Hyuk, a South Korean actor, was accused of school bullying. His agency denied the accusations and took legal action against those spreading false information. Recently, it was reported that Joo Hyuk had met with his former classmate, who accused him of bullying, to resolve the issue but they could not agree due to different recollections of the incidents.

On April 26, the former classmate, referred to as ‘A,’ released a video through the YouTuber and journalist Lee Jin Ho, showing ‘A’ sparring with a male student in a classroom. The other students were encouraging ‘A’ to kick, but he fell while kicking in the air, causing laughter. ‘A’ claimed that Joo Hyuk’s voice could be heard in the background as part of the group egging him on.
However, the video is dark and does not directly capture Joo Hyuk’s face, making it ambiguous. Joo Hyuk’s agency has also maintained that the claims are groundless, and the actor has publicly stated that he feels wronged by the allegations of school violence.
It is difficult to form an opinion on this situation based solely on this video. It is important to investigate the matter thoroughly and consider all evidence before coming to any conclusions. School bullying is a serious issue, and it is crucial to ensure that justice is served, whether the accusations are true or false.
