Former APRIL member Lee Hyunjoo has revealed that she has been sued by DSP Media following her accusations she made against the APRIL members.
In her post, she revealed that she has also been sued, but she also asked her fans to stop criticizing the other APRIL members.
Hello, this is Lee Hyunjoo.
First of all, I want to speak briefly about my situation. My younger brother, who is still a student, was sued so our family was focused on that complaint. I haven’t heard from the police directly yet, but I learned through reports that I have also been sued. I think I will have to prepare a lot for the complaint against me in the future. I know a lot of people are worried for me and supporting me, and I sincerely thank you. We have been taking action well up to now, and we will continue to do so in the future.
I am writing this today because I am a little worried about something. As you all know, a lot of things have happened recently, and I know better than anyone else that criticism and malicious comments can be painful and even unbearable to the people involved. Right now, I am doing well and healthy, but I’m worried since this situation reminds me of the time where my body and mind were suffering. I don’t want to give anyone the same pain that I suffered.
Everyone can make mistakes. But it can only be called a mistake if you accept your wrongdoings and make efforts to correct them. Only then it can forgiveness be possible and for it to be called a mistake. So I sincerely ask that you all stop sending your criticism and malicious comments to the members and their acquaintances.
I have tried my best feel grateful for even the smallest moments of happiness while living. Everyone has the right to be happy, and I hope they can also find that happiness.
I feel more concerned about such things today because its rainy. I hope you all will have a happy Friday. Thank you for reading my rambling.

Earlier this year, Hyunjoo’s brother claimed she quit APRIL due to bullying within the group. The allegations were denied, but Hyunjoo’s brother continued to release statements claiming there was bullying. Hyunjoo herself spoke up about the issue, but DSP Media filed a lawsuit against her. Since then, APRIL members Naeun, Jinsol, and Chaewon have all denied the bullying allegations.
