Was Seventeen’s Mingyu a part of a bullying group in middle school? After an anonymous account accused Mingyu of being involved in bullying when he was in middle school, fans of K-pop star rally behind the 23-year-old rapper to clear out his searches while also pointing out that Mingyu himself has been a victim of bullying for his skin color. 

For the unversed, recently there has been a number of discussions on bullying after (G)I-DLE member Soojin was accused of being a one in school. However, Soojin later put out a statement saying that none of the allegations were true. Followed by Soojin, Seventeen’s Mingyu also faced similar allegations from an anonymous account, who stated that the K-pop crooner was part of a bullying team in Burim Middle School and the accuser was allegedly a victim of their bullying treatment.
