Kim Seong-bin, now 19, has painful memories from when she was a high school student. She was shunned and bullied by her classmates. Every time she saw her peers looking at her with contempt, she recalled feeling like those looks alone could kill her. She was alone all the time. Kim admitted to having suicidal thoughts, but often when those ideas would consume her, she would remember what her parents told her: "Even if you make a grand mistake, we will always protect you".Now an adult, Kim decided to launch a mobile application to give advice and encourage young bullied students, just as her parents supported her. That"s how the app Holding Five came about. The name is two-fold. First, it refers to the "holding effect", a psychological term used to describe the way babies are comforted when in contact with their mothers. It is also based around an account Kim once heard that states that suicidal thoughts can be alleviated if a person listens to music for five minutes. The name of the application is supposed to refer to a tight, long motherly hug. The app allows a user to upload his or her stories anonymously - anything about school life. Some talk about school bullying, others lament that they are simply having trouble getting along with new friends because they are too shy. In return, anonymous comments are made below the posts that provide effective solutions or advice for adjusting to their lives in school. App users recently surpassed 4,000 since its launch in August 2014. "A trivial misunderstanding with my friends caused me to be bullied and completely left me deserted from all my classmates", Kim said of her life in high school. "I thought at the time that this is just like a game that ends when someone dies".Her parents, she added, were the only people she felt she could rely on. "They looked for a counselor, and told me how to respond when my friends bullied me", she said. "If my parents had just told me it was trivial, just a fight with my friends, I wouldn"t have been able to bear it".After a year, with support from her parents, Kim managed to correct the misunderstanding with her friends and overcome the bullying at school. But even still, in her third year in high school she got the idea to help students, like her, who were being ostracized. Her father initially dissuaded her to launch the app, instead urging her to focus on preparing for the university entrance test. "Dad, why do adults always say they"re sorry they couldn"t protect us when everything ends badly?" Kim remembered arguing. "That they weren"t with us when we desperately needed them?" Preparing for and launching an application was tough, however, she said. She proposed her idea to an IT company first, asking representatives there to help her launch it free of charge. To seek out advisers, she called up major broadcasting corporations and explained she was looking for famous mentors to help embattled teenagers. Many came to her aid, and a few high-profile public figures and celebrities even agreed to participate on the app, including singer Kim Tae-woo, and Gang Ji-won, a renowned lawyer. Last year, the first user uploaded the post, "Which one do you like better: jajangmyeon (noodles in black bean sauce) or jjambbong (noodles with spicy soup and seafood)?" But after a slew of ridiculous questions, members eventually got serious and related real school stories - on everything from dating to family disputes and school violence. Many students, Kim said, also post comments about how they generally feel lost. But even now, as a freshman this year at Seoul Women"s University, she said she can still vividly recall the painful memories of being bullied in high school. With emotional scars still remaining, she said she was simply trying to help those in the situation she was in five years ago. Holding Five can help, Kim added. It"s a start.BY HONG SANG-JI [[email protected]]

That"s why the company works with the Seoul Metropolitan Government on a project titled "Friend Name Tag." As part of this project students are given wireless nametags with their own name and that of another student. According to the website Campaign Brief Asia, the nametags help students find allies and help prevent bullying. In the first project, 298 middle school students in Seoul received a nametag. The tags have an embedded emergency system so that any student who sees another student being bullied can push a button that notifies a teacher. Only the teacher will know where the call comes from.

The trial run can be considered a success. During the project trial, 106 calls were made that led to counseling sessions that prevented bullying. Seoul"s city government is showing a short film to promote the anti-bullying policy. And they are considering expanding the nametag campaign to other schools.

While it might be more fun to have Kim Hee Sun come to your school and beat up the bullies, the nametag campaign is a promising development in preventing bullying before it starts.

Understanding K-Drama: Bullying In Schools

News via kdramastars.com

EYK also mentioned three types of bullying. The first is shunning, in which no one speaks to a student and that shunning can last for years or travel with a student if he or she transfers. The second is physical violence. In the third kind, bullied students become the ones who carry other students bags and run their errands. That type of bullying was featured in Fools Love Choi Woo Sik played Ho Gu. During his student days Ho Gu was known as bread shuttle, because he ran errands for the powerful kids, mostly getting them bread.

Reporting a case of bullying is also not easy. Korean schools dont have guidance counselors that students can report to and students may be reluctant to speak up. Teachers who report bullying to their superiors, as Ji Hyun Woos character does in Angry Mom, may get yelled at by parents and their school superiors rather than be commended for seeking justice.

"I know that bullying takes place, even in kindergarten where there"s not necessarily any violence, but certain kids are pushed aside as outcasts," said Kim. "I can very much empathize with Jo Kang Ja and I believe all mothers around the world would feel the same," said Kim Hee Sun.

(Photo : KBS ) KBS recently released the first photos from the highly anticipated youth drama, Who Are You: School 2015 which depict Kim So Hyun as the victim of bullying. She will portray dual roles in the series, with the photos depicting her character Lee Eun Bi. To escape the students who have repeatedly bullied her, Eun Bi transfers to Segang High School, a prestigious private school. Her twin sister, Lee Eun Byul, also attended the school but mysteriously disappears before Eun Bi arrives. Eun Bi capitalizes on the absence of her sister, who was one of the most popular students at the school and assumes her identity.

In the teaser photos, the actress is covered in flour and eggs, evoking the disturbing imagery of Gu Hye Sun as a bullied student at Shinhwa High School in Boys Over Flowers. Gu Hye Sun won over the hearts of viewers as Geum Jan Di, a scrappy poor girl who was initially on the receiving end of brutal bullying from her privileged classmates at the private school. While the scenes were difficult to watch, they contributed to the appeal of Jan Di with K-Drama audiences.

Model-turned-actor Nam Joo Hyuk (Surplus Princess) will portray Han Yi Ahn in the series. The young cast also includes BtoBs Sungjae, Yooyoung of Hello Venus and Lee David (Gu Family Book).
