Red Velvet‘s Seulgi was accused of being a school bully by an anonymous netizen, but Reveluvs quickly stepped in and proved those accusations false.
The anonymous netizen, who has since deleted all of her posts and her account, claimed that she was a student at SOPA (School of Performing Arts Seoul) at the same time as Seulgi. She claimed that Seulgi was a bully, doing things such as demanding money from her and beating her. [Read the tweets from the bottom up, as it is from mobile Twitter]
While she did not directly name Seulgi, the hints she gave were graduated from SOPA in 2013, her initials “ㄱㅅㄱ” which matches Seulgi’s (강슬기). She also stated that the idol in question was in “S” Entertainment.
She uploaded a picture of her medicine she claimed she was taking to treat her depression due to the trauma from the bullying she received.
And she even uploaded a picture that she claimed was her during her graduation from SOPA in 2013.
As Seulgi was accused of something heinous, Reveluvs quickly set out to verify whether her claims were true or not, and they were able to easily sniff out the suspicious pictures, and prove her claims wrong.
Firstly, while it is true Seulgi attended SOPA and graduated in 2013, she was not attending the school at the same time as the netizen claimed she was. A reverse image search showed that the photo the netizen used was taken from Instagram, and was uploaded in February 2019. Seulgi was active as an idol for 5 years already.
In addition, the picture of the medicine she uploaded, claiming to be depression medication, is not used to treat depression at all. the pills include Erdosteine, which is used to treat bronchitis.
Reveluv are calling for SM Entertainment to take action against the netizen for their clearly fake slander against Seulgi, especially after Seulgi has been known to actively stand up against bullies.
reveluvs, please gather all the tweets from this trash and let’s work all together to send it to sm.
if you think sm doesn’t sue people like you, they actually DO. your stupid ass deserves to be sued immediately @WeHKJPu9kOtkWzA

Back in school, Seulgi used to pinch her friend’s mouth if they curse and she would stand up to bullies. She is so well known for her kind personality. I think this is the best girl behaviour idk a better girl#HappySeulgiDay#ItsSeulgiTime#하이슬깋_생일축하햏 pic.twitter.com/10mdH5DHDd

Remember Seulgi's school stories shared by a classmate? And another soldier telling others of Seulgi's heroine characters since childhood?
She can't stand bullies! She's on the side of justice!
