(G)I-DLE’s Soojin has been swept up in bullying accusations and the agency is still currently checking the situation.
A, who claimed that their younger sibling and alleged victim attended the same middle school as Soojin, revealed online that it was “time to expose (G)I-DLE Soojin’s bullying.”
A stated that “all the people in the world needed to know” and that they are “sorry to all the other members of the group besides one person,” but they couldn’t ignore the pain their sibling suffered anymore.
After seeing this comment, (G)I-DLE fans demanded detailed disclosure on the situation. A responded, “The school violence related to Soojin is not misleading and I am the witness and the evidence. My anger won’t wash away when I think about the people that don’t know what Soojin did during school”.
She would call my sibling and my sibling’s friend to the bathroom and make them slap each other and would send group texts saying that my sibling is a loner/outcast. Her image on TV is disgusting. My sibling has a hard time daily whenever they hear a (G)I-DLE song. I will post a more detailed explanation on an online community board. Since everything I am saying is true, I am not scared if they sue me.

The alleged victim also posted an Instagram story with a photo who is believed to be the sibling who received the bullying. According to their claims, Soojin usually stole other people’s school uniforms and stole their money. They also claimed that she went around with older guys who rode motorcycles while drinking and smoking.
This is not the first time Soojin has been swept up in bullying rumors. Another netizen previously posted a photo of Soojin’s middle school yearbook album photo and revealed, “Soojin smelled of cigarettes every day and would go around with older guys and drink alcohol. She would say she was dizzy from drinking and her attitude and behavior in disregarding people was a big shock to me.” They also stated that she would curse at her friends and would not return items after borrowing them. This post has since been deleted.
As the controversy over school bullying has spread to the entertainment industry recently, the online community sites have been flooding with alleged victim posts.
Regarding Soojin’s bullying accusations, CUBE Entertainment has stated, “We are aware of the controversy and currently checking the facts.”
