Timeline of Ji so Bullying Case
On Tuesday (2/3/2021), someone uploaded a post on an online forum accusing Ji so of violence at school. The author (hereinafter written as A) says that he went to school with Ji so in high school from 2006 to 2008.
“Kim Ji so had a bigger body than other children her age at the time. Since his second year of high school in 2007, he explored school as a bad boy and did various bad deeds,” A wrote as reported from Soompi. A also said that the bullies at that time were quite systematic, including Kim Ji so.
First, if any of their members experience something even a little unpleasant, they will all beat up the person who has hurt his friend. In addition, they will also trample in a derogatory manner.
A claims that Ji so and his friends forced his classmates to buy him cigarettes. They also threw food at other students at lunch and laughed. A claimed to be the victim of violence at school such as extortion, humiliation, exile, to receiving harsh words.
It started when B, one of the bad boys in Kim Ji so’s group took another student’s gift certificate. A then went to B and said he would report to the police if he didn’t return the certificate.
Since then the U.S. has been the target of violence in schools. However, after her confession on the online forum, two more people also appeared who also said they had received abusive treatment from Ji so. One man said he had been beaten constantly, and another said he had been verbally abused.
