K-pop Scandal Reignites: Netizens React as Past Bullying Accusations Surface Amid ‘The Glory’ Success

The Glory, a Netflix original series, has brought attention to school bullying once more thanks to its enormous success. On January 17, a piece from KBS2’s evening news show, “Integrated Newsroom Economy Today,” addressed the problem of bullying in schools and society broadcast.

The section emphasized how attitudes toward the issue of school bullying are evolving in society, but it did not emphasize how important it is to implement preventative and deterrent measures. Instead, the episode stressed how the conversation surrounding the issue has changed, creating a climate where evidence of bullying at school may be used to publicly prosecute individuals online, as a ground for divorce, etc.

First, the news reporter brought up the subject of LE SSERAFIM, a team with six members before former member Kim Garam left the group owing to her school bullying history. The reporter then brought up other instances, including those of Stray Kids’ Hyunjin, who partially admitted to one anonymous netizen’s bullying claims and took a break to reflect, and (G)I-Soojin, DLE who left the team after several internet bullying accusations appeared.

The program continued by tying in the case of Lee Jae Young and Lee Da Young, two volleyball players, who were bullied at school, and the plot of the lead character in Netflix’s “The Glory.” Last but not least, the “Economy Today” segment revealed that law firms are marketing their specialized services for school bullying cases to attract clients who may be concerned that their child’s school bullying records will prevent them from being accepted to prestigious universities in the future.

Following the news broadcast, viewing earlier allegations of school bullying involving K-Pop stars sparked contentious discussions among netizens. Some said,

“Anyone with a record of school bullying shouldn’t be allowed to set foot in influential industries like entertainment and sports.”

“Even after all this, school bullies rarely go punished.”

“When K-Pop appears on heavy news like this, it’s never for anything good.”

“School bullies deserve punishment for life.”

“This drama brought back really traumatic but really important issues.”

“I hope a drama like ‘The Glory’ with a top actress like Song Hye Kyo will help some people understand why Koreans will never take a light stance when it comes to school bullying.”

On the other hand, some directed their harsh criticism toward Stray Kids’ Hyunjin, commenting, “I’m so mad that only girl group members got removed, but not that boy group member.”

“Stray Kids’ Hyunjin, the global ambassador for Netflix’s ‘The Glory.'”

“It doesn’t matter if he apologized; it doesn’t matter if he and the victim agreed. School bullies should not be K-Pop idols who are role models for youths.”

“There’s another company who removed the problematic member but gave him a solo debut. If Hyunjin is so popular with international fans, can’t they do the same thing?”

“Wow, I wonder how it feels to have your face that big on the news for school bullying.”

The Glory, a Netflix original film, will have its second installment in March this year.
