Apink‘s Chorong is being accused of assaulting a childhood friend in the past.
On April 1st, PlayM Entertainment filed a criminal complaint against Kim at the Gangnam Police Station for defamation and attempted blackmail using false facts.
PlayM stated, “Recently Park Chorong received threatening messages from Kim, a former childhood friend and threatened to expose her if she didn’t retire from the entertainment industry. Chorong and Kim were childhood friends who were close in the past but drifted apart due to a certain “incident.” Chorong admitted there was an argument and dispute between her and Kim but apologized for any uncomfortable feelings she may have potentially caused but made it clear to Kim that she never committed the assault she was claiming and tried to fix the relationship. She even responded to Kim’s request to meet and made efforts to communicate with Kim by contacting her first.”
“However, Kim continued to overturn the facts, cancel the meeting suddenly, transcribe calls with Chorong’s sincere apology and report it to the media with false facts. Chorong is suffering from extreme mental distress and has come to a situation where legal action is inevitable. We have reviewed all the necessary materials for the complaint process and if false facts are found, we plan to take strong legal action including filing civil and criminal complaint for defamation and attempted blackmail.”
- [+310, -3] Wait so Park Chorong never assaulted her and its not hakpok [school violence] and Chorong still met with her to talk nicely and she threatened her using those recordings as proof and didn’t even apologize? Is that what’ I’m hearing?
- [+242, -25] Eh? Isn’t Chorong famous for her good personality? ㄹㅇ This is like poking a beehive. I mean she didn’t even assault her but met up with her to fix the relationship and she still threatened her? This is why its important to make good friends so that you don’t get shaken up with trash people from the past
- [+230, -2] Huh? This friend is absurdㅋㅋ;; the agency is did well
- [+121, -2]If Park Cho-rong had such makjang image-making skills she would’ve been exposed already. She’s already been in the industry for 10 years and this Kim is just now coming out with thisㅋㅋㅋ
- [+76, -0] As if none of you believe this alreadyㅋㅋㅋㅋ There are so many idols that have been acting like Cheonju “angel” idols but have turned out to be anything butㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ
- [+69, -1]ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ But…she’s already in her 11th year; it’s laughable that she’s just now coming out claiming school violence ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ
- [+47, -0] Why are there so many threats against idols these days? It’s seriously a miracle nothing has happened, reminds me of threats against Seung-hee too [Oh My Girl….all of Apink are famous for their good personalities ㅋㅋㅋ maybe they think their personalities are too much? I hope it gets resolved well especially since they filed a complaint..
- [+46, -0] In the meantime fan reaction: “this is too hilarious”
- [+42, -0] She probably thought because Chorong is kind she’d be an easy targetㅋㅋㅋ
- [+25, -1] Is this person f***ingㅈㄴ crazy!? You chose the wrong one ㅋㅋ. Didn’t you know Park Chorong is famous for her good personality?
