The talented contestant Nam So Hyun continues her competition at "K-Pop Star 4" despite her recent bully scandal.

A representative from “K-Pop Star 4″ told Star News on January 10, “Contestant Nam So Hyun made it to the third round, and we have contacted her school regarding the rumors of her behavior. There was no issue. We are hesitant, but we will be airing her third round segment.”

They continued, “We talked to her school about the online post, and the school told us that she has never caused any trouble,” adding, “we tried to find the person who originally posted the accusation, but since they wrote it anonymously, we cannot find them. Nam So Hyun herself did not know who wrote the piece.”

They also commented, “We understand that this is a sensitive issue. We hope that Nam So Hyun is not hurt any more than this.”

Previously, an anonymous individual posted an accusation on an online community board, claiming that Nam So Hyun has been a bully in school.

Mysterious Netizen Releases Images and Criticism for 'KPop Star 4''s Nam So Hyn, Sparking Controversy

Lately, the netizen, who previously accused “K-Pop Star –Season IV” ‘s contestant, Nam So Hyun, of bullying and stealing money from friends, has shared more images and additional  criticisms.

On December 15th, the mysterious netizen has shared a long post titled “K-POP Star Nam So Hyun’s true nature,” along with a photo. She asserted that Nam So Hyun was once a bully with proofs of photos and screen captured records. She again added more photos and proofs on her original post reinforcing her argument.

The netizen explained, “Some people say I also was one of the bullies, but me and my friends never smoke cigarettes or took away money from juniors. And they also say I made these all up, but since other victims also posted evidential photos supporting me, there seems to be a lot more than myself.”

Previously, this netizen introduced herself as a middle school classmate with Nam So Hyun and said, “When I first heard that Nam So Hyun will be a part of K-Pop Star 4, I was dumbfounded. Some people say even though one has a bad past, it does not matter if they never harm other people. But she did a lot of harm to others including myself.”

“It was so ridiculous that she acted to be innocent in K-Pop Star. When she went to high school later on, she tried to maintain her image saying she never smoked or drank. I decided to post all these because I don’t think it is right to be successful for a person who used to give other people a lot of pain and pressure.”

The netizen also added, “Nam So Hyun forced her juniors to bring her money. She got caught drinking alcohols and smoking cigarettes when she was going to middle school. Moreover, we had to sell her used clothes for her, and if we could not, we had to gather money and buy it from her.”

After reading the post of Nam So Hyun’s school year classmate, other netizens reacted, “Is that true?”, “If it is true, Nam So Hyun should not be in K-Pop Star 4 anymore,” “So disappointed,” and “That is why you always have to be nice to others.”

Nam So Hyun is the little sister of Nam Young Ju, who featured in K-Pop Star 3. Nam So Hyun has been gaining her popularity with her pure image and pretty appearances.

Below is a capture of the netizen’s post. The original post on Pann can be found here.
