The person also shared some images of what seems to be Yun sitting by a table with alcohol bottles when he was an underage teen. Another photo of him smoking while wearing a school uniform. There were also screen captures of social media posts where he repeatedly used vulgar language.
However, there were also netizens who claimed that the person in the photos is not actually Yoon. Another netizen who identified himself as Yun’s former classmate also came out to his defense. The person said the idol trainee was never a bully.
“He wasn’t a bully like the posts described. He was in the athletic club, but he didn’t misbehave. He was very kind,” the person claimed.
Mnet said they have already reached out to JYP about the accusations and are still waiting for a response from the agency. As for JYP Entertainment, the agency said they are looking into the issue.
