It has recently been revealed that actor Nam Joo Hyuk had met with the former classmate who accused him of school violence and discussed the issue.
Sports Kyunghyang reported exclusively on April 24th that “Nam Joo Hyuk and his former classmate, A, who claimed to have been a victim of his violence, met several times in person to recall their memories related to the school violence claim, but their positions remained opposite.“
The report continued, “They tried to have a conversation, but their memories were completely different, so they were unable to continue the conversation smoothly.”
Earlier, A claimed in an interview with Sports Kyunghyang in June of last year, “Nam Joo Hyuk forced me to turn on my smartphone hotspot and used my phone as he pleased. Throughout my high school years, Nam Joo Hyuk had my phone more than I did. I also had to give him my lunch and was forced to spar with other friends.”
Nam Joo Hyuk‘s agency, Management Soop, stated that the allegations were “baseless” and that they would take legal action.
Nam Joo Hyuk entered the Nonsan Army Training Center in Chungnam last month. He is known to have been assigned as a squad leader and trainee in his unit and will serve in the military police unit after completing five weeks of basic military training.
