Recently, a netizen accused Youngjae for leading school violence against a disabled student during his time in high school.
JYP Entertainment responded:
“We will find out the exact facts about this situation and announce our position”
And today they released the next statement:
“We have confirmed with Youngjae that he and his classmate had a discussion that led to a physical fight and that they were unable to reconcile afterwards. He -Youngjae- told us that all other claims made by the author of the post are false.
The author of the post indicated that he sent his complaints to the agency via email, but we have not yet received email or other contact form from them.
We tried to contact the author to verify the details of the truth, but we have not received any response.
Before Youngjae transferred to the Seoul’s Korean Arts High School, he studied at Mokpo Technical, where he had this malicious encounter.
