Cube Entertainment has announced (G)I-DLE‘s Soojin will be temporarily halting all activities following the bullying accusations made against her.
In their official statement, Cube Entertainment apologized for the delay in their response, and announced the future plans for (G)I-DLE.
Hello, this is Cube Entertainment.
We would like to make our official statement regarding (G)I-DLE Soojin’s school days.
First, we would like to apologize for not being able to convey our position sooner. Please understand that we did our best to verify the facts, and it took us a long time to proceed with the verification process.
We checked the situations [listed in the accusations] with Soojin’s school, teachers, and several classmates. In our confirmation process, it is true that there were quarrels between Soojin and the student, but no other statements claimed by the author of the post were confirmed.
Therefore, we have proposed a face-to-face meeting between the authors of the posts and us to clearly check the facts, but the parties involved stated that they do not wish to meet. However, if the parties involved wish to meet in the future, we will arrange the meeting at anytime.
Currently, Soojin has halted all activities and (G)I-DLE will continue as a five member team for the time being.
Once again, we sincerely apologize to everyone for causing an inconvenience due to issues related to our artist. However, we will also take strict legal action against malicious comments and the spread of false information.
We will do our best to clarify the facts related to this matter so that no one will be unfairly damaged.
