Jo Byung Gyu’s Agency Releases An Update After Getting In Contact With The OP Of The False Bullying Rumors

They have gotten in contact with the OP.

Uncanny Counter actor Jo Byung Gyu was recently swept up in false rumors about having bullied a fellow classmate back in New Zealand. The rumors have since been proven false. Although HB Entertainment had previously made a quick statement that the posts were untrue, they have updated the media with a longer statement after investigations.

They have revealed that the OP has been contacted and has apologized. The post has also been taken down. We have contacted the OP that created the falsified posts, after conducting a legal investigation and lodging a lawsuit this morning. The OP admitted to writing the post, and is regretting their mistake and crime. We have accepted their apology as a settlement. We have confirmed their sincerity and that they have taken down the post since.
