Preface:The post was written by OP after having validated the facts and experience of their acquaintances. It will only be laying out facts. The victims are scared that their personal identify might be revealed so OP will not divulge pictures/IDs/answer unrelated questions to the post/etc.
The goal: The victims don't want apologies nor monetary settlement. They don't want what they've suffered from be distorted as a lie. They want the assailant and his fans who are trying to silence the victims to reflect on the truth.
A - Burim middle school's 97'er witness
B - Burim middle school's 97'er victim
A and B are friends
C - Burim middle school's 97'er victim (disabled)
OP: A's friend, Anyang student, not from Burim middle school
> They might be able to catch on my weaknesses
> That's what I'm worried about
> If I'm being called to his company
> I'll have to see Kim Mingyu's face
> And I'll probably need to meet other Burim middle school kids too
> If this happens...
> I would hate it and it just sounds like a pain
> My life is already so overbearing even without something like thisㅋㅋㅋ
> These are just my worries...
> Why is it that even in situations like these, I'm the one who is the one fighting here
The damage was real
There was a witness account of C getting physically assaulted by the assailant
This is an IG DM between A and another Burim student in the same grade
A: Seriously it's so funny X. I still vividly remember that guy harassing C
X: Wasn't this crazyㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ but now it's getting exposed for real. All of us [saw/knew] it in middle school
A: When he purposefully tried to make him agitated
A: when he was hitting desks
X: He would pill the Pepero wrappers and throw it at C
A: People shouldn't shield him saying he's young
X: He was even laughing and giggling at [C]
A: Hul he did that??
A: Ha damn it, Wow he's mean
X: ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ Seriously...
B's group chat with Burim middle school's friends
Y: But Kim Mingyu was daebak
YY: All the iljin celebrities must be trembling right now
Y: He was freaking ignoring that disabled friend, C. I want to talk about when he dumped trash on C's face
A and OP's katalk
OP: You know yesterday, that student who was sick? I got so shocked knowing they got bullied
A: Yupㅜㅜㅜ C. I think they were autistic? Whenever they got agitated, he would strike the desks. And he would purposefully make them even more agitated. He f*cking banged the desks. He's such a bad person
B's IG story
- I was the target of mockery of that person who is in a controversy right now
- He wasn't the main leader of the bullies
- In the morning, when there aren't a lot of people who have arrived at school, the leader would clench on my breasts and say "Yah you're a girl, they say if you do that, your breasts will grow bigger" and clench on my breasts even harder. [MG] was also laughing on the side and he also clenched my breasts. I wonder why I didn't react and didn't get mad
- The leader was known throughout the school for being the scariest and [MG] was also created an intimidating aura
A and OP's conversation in 2019, August 23rd
A: Mingyu, he's f*cking acting like some boyfriend-dols. He's living happily. Ew seriously. He earns a lot of money and he's famous. I feel like the Anyang board is too small to spread this news. And all the kids are already aware that Mingyu is a bully. Even if his friends will try to block this.

The more the fans claim that he's done nothing wrong, the bigger this issue will get no? They were able to get rid of all the build up posts circulating in other communities. They're basically attacking the victims twice. I haven't seen a single fan trying to stop them

A sunbae one year older than Kim Mingyu wrote this comment. He force fed a candy to a disabled kid
[...] What I can remember is that Mingyu had a lot of close hyungs and including his friends, they were behaving quite social towards me and I thought of him as being someone polite. From BooAn elementary school to Burim middle school, he had a lot of hyungs and nunas and most of them were friendly with Mingyu. I can't certify the other instances, but I remember once, he forced a candy in the mouth of a disabled kid. I can't remember the other anecdotes from him, so I can't comment about his school violence [...]

I used to be in their grades in middle school and I support OP! I believe you will be able to put light on the truthㅎㅎ fighting!!

Kim Mingyu forcefully took money from others, would purposefully make other people trip down, verbally abused others, comments like these can be found under so many community posts that I can't even count them anymore. So what makes the fans think that this was all made up... All of the claims overlap with each other and if you look at the comments, you will be able to find the truth in them. Tormenting a disabled person + sexually harassing a female student is utterly messed up

Just why in the world would people think that deleting a post equates fabricating things? When countless fans are here in the comments requesting for proofs and that they would get sued if they don't show the proofs? Who wouldn't get psychologically pressured by threats like that especially when there are virtually nobody supporting you?ㅋㅋㅋ
