Jo Byeong Gyu tinanggi ang pambu-bully
Muling naintriga ang young South Korean actor na si Jo Byeong Gyu ng school bullying.
Siya ang bida ng K-drama na “Uncanny Counter.”
Noong 2018, na-isyu na siya na diumano’y nambu-bully sa school.Pero at that time, mabilis itong itinanggi ng actor .Ayon dito, wala siyang masyadong contact sa mga kaklase niya dahil sa kanyang acting career. Bukod pa sa nag-aral din siya sa New Zealand para mas matuto pa ng lengguwaheng english.
Pero nitong February 16 lang, may nag-post muli na isang netizen na diuamano’y biktima siya ng bullying sa school ng actor. At nangyari na ito sa New Zealand.
Bahagi ng post ng netizen, “To learn English, I went to study abroad alone in New Zealand at age 16 and stayed at a boarding house. I went to school quietly for about a week. One day, a new student came into the class, and that was Jo Byeong Gyu. I was about to leave the classroom when class was over, but he spoke to me. This short kid with dyed hair and cut-off pants suddenly picked a fight with me. I didn’t feel very good about it, so I didn’t respond and just left. But the incident left a bad taste in my mouth.”
“A” continued, “At lunch, due to a mixup in my schedule, I was eating lunch alone, but two Korean kids with mean faces whom I’d never seen before suddenly told me to follow them. I thought, ‘What?’ and went with them, and suddenly I was surrounded by 30 people swearing at me.
“I was so angry that I went to the kind of place that manages Korean students who are studying abroad. I told the manager there what had happened. The parents were informed and the lady in charge of our boarding house was also informed. Jo Byeong Gyu and I were brought in to talk, but he spoke rudely to the manager as well. The manager just told us that if this happened again, he’d take measures according to school regulations, and told us to get along. The lady in charge of the boarding house contacted my parents in Korea after learning about this, and my parents were really worried about me because I was abroad and alone.”
Bukod daw dito, nagsasalita rin daw ang actor ng mga kabastusang salita. Hindi naman daw gumagamit ng physical violence si Jo Byeong Gyu, pero puro verbal abused daw ang natatanggap niya. Gayundin din daw ay iniinsulto umano nito ang mga teacher.
May nilabas din na ilang school documents sa New Zealand at exchange of chat/text sa pagitan ng netizen at ng mga kaibigan niya. Ito’y bilang patunay na nag-aral siya sa naturang bansa kasabay ang actor.
Ang hangad niya lang daw ay isang sinserong apology mula sa actor at para maipakita sa lahat na totoong nangyayari ang school violence.
Mabilis at mariin namang pinabulaanan ni Jo Byeong Gyu sa pamamagitan ng kanyang agency ang naturang complaint .Nag-warning din na kapag hindi tumigil ang ganitong pang-iintriga raw ay siguradong idedemanda nila.
