What happened in the entertainment industry on this day (October 16th) some years ago?

There were some notable events. In particular, Park Kyung met the friend who claimed to be bullied by the singer during school days in person and delivered his apology, and Choi Yoo-jung, a member of Weki Meki and I.O.I, suspended her activities due to health reasons.

Let’s look back on those events!

#Park Kyung met the victim of school violence and delivered an apology

Park Kyung (30 years old), a member of the boy group Block B, met the victim who exposed him to school violence and apologized to that friend in person. On October 16th, 2020, Park Kyung’s company, KQ Entertainment, said that Park Kyung had already apologized to the victim who raised the ‘school violence’ suspicions after a personal meeting. Regarding the reason for the meeting, the company said, “He met the friend in person in order to express his apology sincerely.”

Earlier in September of the same year, Park Kyung was embroiled in an allegation of school bullying. A revelation post by a netizen claiming to have been bullied by Park Kyung during their school days spread rapidly on all online sites. The post’s author said, “I went to the same school as Park Kyung. I was bullied by him in the past.”

In response, Park Kyung admitted to school violence and explained that he did that because he hated his model student image and wanted to get the attention. He said, “I thought those friends who were always playing around looked cool. I wanted to hang out with them, so I did those shameful actions. I thought if I were with them, no one would treat me lightly. To the victims who were hurt by me, please contact me directly or through my company. I want to apologize to you and ask for your forgiveness.”

Park Kyung used to be praised as a “sexy brain man”. Therefore, this school violence controversy did affect his image as an idol. He enlisted on October 19th last year, and his discharge date is scheduled for April 18th, 2022.

#Weki Meki Choi Yoo-jung suspended her activities… Why?

Weki Meki Choi Yoo-jung (23 years old) reportedly stopped all her activities temporarily due to health problems. On October 16th, 2019, Choi Yoo-jung’s company uploaded a post on Weki Meki’s official fancafe to announce, Choi Yoo-jung has stopped her activities due to health reasons.” As a result, Choi Yoo-jung was excluded from all group activities for several months. She took a long rest to recover her condition. After her recovery, Weki Meki continued their group activities as a 7-member group again.

In the announcement of Choi Yoo-jung’s activities suspension, the company stated, “We’re sorry to deliver this sudden news to Ki-Ling who have generously loved Weki Meki and Choi Yoo-jung”. They also promised to do their best to take care of Choi Yoo-jung’s health.

Choi Yoo-jung received huge love when she debuted in the project girl group I.O.I through Mnet’s audition program “Produce 101” in 2016. After that, she has also shown off various charms as a Weki Meki member. About two months later, on January 1st, 2020, Choi Yoo-jung announced her return by posting a selfie photo on her Instagram. However, what drew the attention was her face had become much more mature, and it didn’t look similar to her young and cute face during the audition program. In response, netizens wondered whether she took a break to recover from eye and nose plastic surgery.

Meanwhile, Choi Yoo-jung once again showed off her dance skills on a broadcast of Mnet’s show “Street Woman Fighter aired last month. She joined the stage of IZ*ONE Lee Chae-yeon’s dance crew called ‘WANT’.
