APRIL's Chaewon, Jinsol go live with fans after Hyunjoo’s bullying allegations
In early 2021, the general public turned their backs on APRIL after a former member claimed she was bullied by the K-pop girl group
Fans have been wondering what happened to APRIL after a former member, Lee Hyunjoo claimed that she had been bullied by the members. In early 2021, both Hyunjoo and the group’s label, DSP Media tried to sue each other. APRIL even went as far as to have an interview where they tried to clear things up and deny the rumors. However, the industry turned their backs on them with the girls also losing their individual gigs. Chaewon was the one initially targeted by Hyunjoo and ended up going on a hiatus. However, she’s back along with Jinsol.
After Chaewon’s mother spoke up and brought in the staff as witnesses, fans found some loopholes in Hyunjoo’s claims. While the matter hasn’t fully cleared up, many are once again supporting Chaewon and APRIL. Following the change in public opinion, she came back on her YouTube channel where she used to upload song covers. Her last song cover before the allegations had more dislikes than likes and were filled with hate comments. But her latest videos have been full of supportive messages. On November 15, she went live with the maknae (youngest), Jinsol for almost an hour.
