After a month and a half the absence of Hyunjin from Stray Kids filming, fans take it to social media to ask JYPE to bring the member back. Hyunjin was accused of school violence in February where an unknown classmate of the K-pop star complained of the member being verbally abusive in school days.

After the allegations, JYP Entertainment had put out a statement regarding Hyunjin’s bullying rumors claiming that the K-pop crooner had personally apologized to the classmates that he had unintentionally hurt. He was suspended from taking part in any group activities along with being removed from various advertisement campaigns.
