Hold onto your hats, folks, because we’ve got some spicy drama coming your way! The Netflix show ‘Physical 100’ has been rocked by accusations that one of its contestants, stunt woman Kim Da Young, was a school bully back in the day.
It all started when an anonymous online user posted on online community Nate Pann claiming they were a victim of Kim Da Young’s bullying. According to the victim, they and their friend were constantly harassed by Kim Da Young to the point where they were terrified of even hearing their phone ring. And if that wasn’t bad enough, Kim Da Young also allegedly physically assaulted them and extorted money from them. Yikes!
But it doesn’t stop there, folks. The victim eventually told their parents about the bullying, but Kim Da Young retaliated by dragging them to a karaoke room, stealing their phones, and slapping them around like a rag doll. Talk about overkill!
The victim and their friend were left traumatized by the experience, with the memory of Kim Da Young’s bullying continuing to haunt them even after 10 years. And to add insult to injury, they were shocked to see posts online claiming that Kim Da Young is actually an “amazing person.” Yeah, right.
It’s almost too ironic to believe that a school bully would end up on a show like ‘Physical 100’, which has become popular for its portrayal of school violence in the drama ‘The Glory’. But alas, it seems that life really does imitate art sometimes.
And as if one victim wasn’t enough, other people have also come forward with similar stories of being bullied by Kim Da Young. Despite receiving an apology from her parents and some form of punishment, it seems that Kim Da Young hasn’t changed her ways.
But don’t worry, netizens have got the victims’ backs. They’re all in agreement that those who harm others will pay for their sins, and that the victims will never forget what happened to them. No pressure, Kim Da Young.
As for Kim Da Young herself, the contestant has admitted to being a school bully and has issued an apology.
In a letter posted on her Instagram account on February 24, Kim Da Young admitted to being a delinquent student 14 years ago and hurting the feelings of her juniors by using curse words to discipline them. She stated that she was immature and childish and expressed remorse for her past behaviour.
Full statement in Korean as follows:
Kim Da Young wrote on her Instagram (loosely translated), “I now am posting this letter after thinking over it for a few days and self-reflecting.” She continued to write, “About 14 years ago, I admit I was a delinquent student. Looking back at the past, I hung out with the popular kids and cursed at my juniors, hurting their feelings, with the excuse of disciplining them. I was not mature and I was childish.”
Kim Da Young continued, “I’m sure there are juniors who were hurt by this, so I want to apologize using this opportunity. I am really sorry.” She added, “Even if I apologize like this, it won’t make the past disappear. If the time allows, I want to personally go and apologize, asking for forgiveness.”
Kim Da Young also apologized to the producers of ‘Physical:100,’ viewers, and fans. However, she denied some of the accusations against her, claiming that she did not steal money or physically assault anyone.
On her post, she says, “I did not steal money or physically assault them. It is true that I acted shamefully, cursing and saying hurtful words to my juniors, but I never physically hurt them or took their money.”
While she seeks forgiveness for her past actions, she also wants to clarify that she is apologizing for what she actually did and not for things she did not do.
