    i just wanted to clarify some details in case anyone cares or is confused. also bc theres ppl mixing up details and frankly i dont like that bc it doesnt help the victim’s case.


    this is the translation of the pann post made by the victim that made the whole situation blow up in the first place, WITH PROOF.

    to sum this up:

    1) Mingyu is being accused of bullying and sexual harassment NOT sexual assault. ppl keep mixing it up and this is NOT to say that it makes his actions any less wrong i just think its important to stick to the victim’s story.


    now what he has done/said specifically according to op:

    - whenever op wanted to voice her opinion mingyu was one of the bullies who rudely shut her down and as a result this made her never talk bc she was scared. (for what he said exactly read the post i linked).

    -mingyu would make sexual comments/jokes around op, they were never directed to her. it escalated to the point where teachers had to tell him to stop but he still did it when they werent around. (now i dont wanna see anyone saying that this is nothing. these sexual comments were not directed at her but mingyu still made it a sexually hostile and uncomfortable environment, to the extent that op had to mention these instances to her therapist. think about that. you werent there so you cannot imagine how that must feel).


    2) OP says that her mental health issues are not caused entirely by mingyu’s actions, she has just mentioned him in her therapy sessions.

    -again i dont wanna see ppl making this seem like its nothing and that op is making this a big deal bc if it was to the extent that she had to mention it in therapy, ITS NOT NOTHING.


    According to pledis in their statement, they are still looking into this. OP has stated that they dont want an apology and apparently they dont want to be contacted so idk what theyre going to do about this.


    Now theres another bullying accusation involving mingyu and that is about the one in regards to the autistic student. there were classmates in a groupchat that were accusing mingyu of bullying an autistic student (theres a pann post about it im going to link it further down in the post).


    According to pledis, these accusations are false because they and mingyu have been in contact with the austistic student and their family and they have confirmed that mingyu was not one of the students that bullied this student. Here’s more about it:

    Theres also other accusations from ppl on pann claiming to be students from the same middle school as mingyu. One that has been talked about the most is this one:

    [UPDATE] So apparently there's been a mistranslation/misunderstanding, the victim in this post is actually male not female. this doesn't change anything its just some clarification.

    This person is associated with the person who made the accusations about the autistic student (which is false) so idk what to take from it anymore.

    However, pledis said that theyre still looking into the other accusations and will make other statements soon. According to pledis, Mingyu is also attempting to fact check apparently and has halted his activities.


    So thats basically it as of rn. I dont want anyone to take this as a defense mingyu post bc its not. im just clarifying what we do know and what has been said. As of right now I still stand with the victims. Mingyu has apologized to the fans but that doesnt mean anything to me.


    Anyways not everything has been cleared up yet so carats that have been insensitive throughout all of this, dont get too excited its not over.

    Mingyu is just bad situation since he isn't accused of only bully but also sexual assault. He needs to leave asap

    Soojin is keep refusing to apologize and victims talk to MBC PD note. So, they story might be broadcasted on TV. She is a goner

    Hyunjin apologized and his acussers accepted it. He should be fine and resume activity soon.

    Kihyun should be fine and an apologize should do it for him too.

    he's being accused of sexual harassment and bullying, not assault. but yes his situation is a lot more serious especially since his victim's proof is the most believable imo.

    I can't believe akp users like you are still active about this right now. And here I thought threads or comments like that would stop for now, considering how serious the issue is, especially for the victim if it happens to be true. Yet both of you still managed to care more about your faves which has nothing to do with the issue. Disgusting. Please be a little bit more sensible. Let's just hope that you don't have that same kind of thinking towards other people outside of K-Pop.

    god i hate it here!!! nctzens legit the scum of the depths of akp forums. i miss it when they were in hiding since the revamp

    yea i was very suprised but content with the overall support and respect for the victim. now we just wait for whatever happens next, so this next month is gonna be very stressful. I'm so disappointed its hard to explain but im glad this came out, i don't wanna support someone who has harmed people and thinks they can brush it under the rug.

    seventeen have had pretty clean image up until now they've only had minor scandals that they were always able to move past. now it just depends on what actions pledis will take. if mingyu leaves then i think their image will remain intact; the fandom will be affected cause mingyu is the most popular member but i think their sales will remain consistent. however, if mingyu doesnt leave the group itll ruin seventeen and even i cant support them if mingyu remains in the group. even if it wasn't something as extreme as assault, its still a serious matter that should be taken seriously. bullies shouldn't have a platform.

    Yes but I’m confused as to why so late? I’d understand if it was something so severe like domestic violence, I wanna know more from the alleged victim.

    it makes a lot of sense to me. its one thing for your bully to become an idol (a popular one at that). but when that bully’s public image is squeaky clean and viewed as “bf material”, it must piss u off. especially bc of the first bullying accusations that came up and fans + his friends from school were defending him, i would be extremely upset bc its far from the truth plus he never apologized or made an effort to resolve these issues. this mustve just set her off and i support her if its true (which it most likely is).
