However, many of those claims are solely statements with little bodily proof. In sure instances the place a School Violence Committee is held, there might be adequate proof to help the informant’s claims. Other data comparable to hospital data for remedy are additionally fairly legitimate. However, if the one proof is an image of a yearbook, the claims aren’t as sound. Thus, the specifics of the claims have to be totally investigated.

This is the case for Nam Joo Hyuk, who has been accused of faculty violence by two people who revealed their instances with media shops The Days News and Sports Kyunghyang. Such bullying included throwing mechanical pencil lead, ordering the person to be a “bread shuttle”, and bodily violence.

Claims made by the 2 informants, together with displaying how Informant A modified their assertion.

Of course, it’s customary that any report concerning faculty violence shouldn’t simply be instantly dismissed as faux, however cross-checking the details is critical to find out the validity of the report. Dispatch has determined to cross test the tales shared by The Days News and Sports Kyunghyang. Dispatch has carried out this by interviewing 20 people who had been related to Nam Joo Hyuk throughout highschool. Those 20 people are as follows:

Claim #1 – Nam Joo Hyuk was an Iljin (faculty bully)

One of the informants claimed that Nam Joo Hyuk was a bully in school alongside his buddies, inflicting the informant to dwell a lonely faculty life. This level was refuted by 10 individuals.

How on earth ought to one go to highschool? Isn’t that how most individuals’s faculty life is?

Is it an issue to hang around with buddies? Students who’re good at learning have a tendency to assemble collectively, those that like sports activities collect collectively. It’s simply hanging out with buddies who’ve the identical pursuits.

I used to be like that, Nam Joo Hyuk was additionally like that.

— Shin [name redacted], twelfth grade classmate

S1 [name redacted], twelfth grade classmate and Shin [name redacted], tenth grade classmate acknowledged that the informant didn’t know what the vibe and ambiance at Suil High School was in 2012. Two different classmates who spent each eleventh and twelfth grade with Nam Joo Hyuk echoed the identical opinion.

Our faculty on the time had very extreme punishments. It was extraordinarily strict. There was by no means the concept that there was a bunch of bullies in school. What sort of pal would bully somebody persistently? If the academics heard about it, issues in school can be loopy.

— H [name redacted], eleventh and twelfth grade classmate, L [name redacted], eleventh and twelfth grade classmate

Y1 [name redacted], alumnus, additionally acknowledged there was no bullying on the faculty.

There was no tradition of bullying on the faculty. It was a faculty the place the particular person bullying can be handled because the bizarre one in the event that they tried to create an environment of bullying.

The alumni are asking that we step up and cooperate with the police investigation.

— Y1 [name redacted], alumnus

Seo Seok Hoon, tenth grade classmate, and Jo Boo Hyeong, alumnus, each determined to talk overtly whereas revealing their identities.

I’m saying this as a result of they actually didn’t know what the varsity was like.

There might have been a bunch of those that thought a sure group in school had been bullies.

Nam Joo Hyuk was not a part of that group.

— Seo Seok Hoon, tenth grade classmate

Nam Joo Hyuk is just not the kind of particular person that may harass others. He preferred sports activities. Nam Joo Hyuk would even snigger when his buddies teased and joked round with him. He has a very good persona, that’s proper.

That’s why his buddies preferred him.

— Jo Boo Hyeong, alumnus

Lee [name redacted], tenth grade classmate shared what a typical day in Nam Joo Hyuk’s faculty life was as soon as he turned a mannequin.

He used to say some random issues since he was a mannequin. All of his buddies laughed. He went to modelling academy, loved basketball, and slept rather a lot. The academics trusted him rather a lot. There’s that sense of justice… haha.

— Lee [name redacted], tenth grade classmate

Regarding the belief from the academics, Park Tae Gyu, tenth grade homeroom trainer, commented.

Nam Joo Hyuk was a scholar who would inform the others ‘hey guys, lets quiet down.’ He was the sort to mediate when there was a combat, saying ‘let’s not combat anymore.’ I don’t know what sort of misunderstanding the informant has however Nam Joo Hyuk is just not that sort of particular person (referring to a bully).

— Park Tae Gyu, tenth grade homeroom trainer

Claim #2 – The Bread Shuttle

A declare was made that Nam Joo Hyuk pressured the informant to be their bread shuttle, which is a time period for a scholar that’s made to do orders from their bully.

The almuni from the varsity merely requested whether or not such a factor was actual. H [name redacted], eleventh and twelfth grade classmate, firmly acknowledged that claims of a bread shuttle had been a lie.

I imagine I can firmly state that [the claims of a bread shuttle] are a lie.

I used to be so dumbfounded after I noticed the report that I wrote straight onto the neighborhood put up.

— H [name redacted], eleventh and twelfth grade classmate

Shin [name redacted], twelfth grade classmate shared that they’d go get bread with Nam Joo Hyuk and revel in it collectively.

I might at all times go to the snack bar with Nam Joo Hyuk to purchase and eat breads. He didn’t ask somebody to do it, that by no means occurred. We would purchase it ourselves from the shop and eat it.

— Shin [name redacted], twelfth grade classmate

L [name redacted], eleventh and twelfth grade classmate, defined why Nam Joo Hyuk would go to the snack bar himself to purchase his snacks.

We had been divided into men and women. The snack bar was a spot the place we might see others. If Nam Joo Hyuk actually ordered others as a bread shuttle? I’m positive the scholars would have stayed away from him due to the varsity’s ambiance.

— L [name redacted], eleventh and twelfth grade classmate

J [name redacted], alumnus, personally noticed Nam Joo Hyuk throughout breaks on the snack bar.

Nam Joo Hyuk preferred to go to the snack bar. We had been in several courses however we met usually throughout breaks. Of course, I don’t know the whole lot, however ordering a bread shuttle? That rumor would have unfold rapidly in school and that particular person would change into an outcast.

— J [name redacted], alumnus

S1 [name redacted], twelfth grade classmate, made an assumption on the state of affairs the data might have twisted or witnessed.

Isn’t this the scenario that the informant is speaking about? Where Nam Joo Hyuk can ask somebody to purchase one thing for him from the snack bar whereas they’re heading there? This is a typical factor. And even Nam Joo Hyuk purchased bread for somebody who requested him to get them some.

— S1 [name redacted], twelfth grade classmate

Claim #3 – Sparring

The second informant informed Sports Kyunghyang that Nam Joo Hyuk would designate a sparring companion for them and make them combat. Nam Joo Hyuk and his group would create a hoop across the two and watch them combat. 6 people refuted these claims.

L [name redacted], eleventh and twelfth grade classmate, admitted that there was sparring at instances in school, however denied Nam Joo Hyuk’s involvement.

This has nothing to do with Nam Joo Hyuk.

Honestly, does it even make sense to pressure sparring? Forcing a combat? I don’t bear in mind issues like that. We joked round with buddies at the back of our classroom, we even imitated WWE.

— L [name redacted], eleventh and twelfth grade classmate

Both S1 and S2, twelfth grade classmates, echoed L’s assertion.

Is the informant speaking about wrestling?

Nam Joo Hyuk would playfully wrestle the opposite boys within the class. But he wasn’t at the back of the category. We’ve by no means heard of any tales of him sparring.

— S1 and S2, twelfth grade classmates

Y1 [name redacted], alumnus had an analogous reminiscence referring to this.

The flooring for the liberal arts class the place Nam Joo Hyuk was and pure sciences class was totally different. Sometimes throughout break, I might go to the liberal arts class and the youngsters had been taking part in wrestling video games at the back of the category.

I don’t bear in mind it to be pressured, however extra simply the boys messing round.

— Y1 [name redacted], alumnus

Kim [name redacted], twelfth grade classmate, recalled a combat involving two people, however Nam Joo Hyuk was not concerned.

I bear in mind a combat at the back of the classroom between “P” and a scholar nicknamed Rindaman as a result of he was 190cm tall. The combat occurred as a result of the 2 stored arguing.

— Kim [name redacted], twelfth grade classmate

Finally, H [name redacted], alumnus, witnessed the identical combat with Nam Joo Hyuk not concerned.

When I went to Nam Joo Hyuk’s classroom throughout break, I generally joked round with a couple of individuals at the back of the room. I noticed “P” inform Rindaman to return out to combat, however that had nothing to do with Nam Joo Hyuk.

— H [name redacted], alumnus

Claim #4 – A Forced Payment

The second informant claimed that Nam Joo Hyuk would use their cellphone to man video games and in-game purchases on his private account after which not paying again the cash.

The people interviewed all pointed at “P” from the above combat case because the wrongdoer, not Nam Joo Hyuk. “P” took their trainer’s cellphone and bought a number of issues utilizing their trainer’s account.

Nam Joo Hyuk used another person’s cellphone to buy one thing? Rather, it was “P” who stole our trainer’s cellphone and obtained caught shopping for one thing. Our trainer scolded us throughout morning meeting, asking who used his cellphone to purchase one thing.

— Park [name redacted], eleventh grade classmate

Pay by money via your cellphone? There’s an incident that involves thoughts. It’s not about Nam Joo Hyuk, it’s “P”. “P” is a scholar that precipitated hassle in that boys class. There was quite a lot of fuss becuase he purchased one thing utilizing his trainer’s cellphone.

— Son [name redacted], alumnus

The essential character within the cellphone cost case is “P”. The informant modified the particular person concerned to be Nam Joo Hyuk. This has nothing to do with Nam Joo Hyuk. That’s why I feel that is much more malicious.

— H [name redacted], eleventh and twelfth grade classmate

Everyone is aware of concerning the cellphone cost case. Why did you place Nam Joo Hyuk’s identify for one thing “P” did? “P” was in the identical class as Nam Joo Hyuk in tenth grade. He would instigate arguments, saying issues like ‘hey long-legged f***, eat a lot’ to Nam Joo Hyuk.

— Lee [name redacted], tenth grade classmate

At the time, Suil High School college students needed to flip of their cell telephones to their homeroom trainer at first of sophistication. Park Tae Gyu, tenth grade homeroom trainer, confirmed this.

10 years in the past, we had a system that you just needed to flip in your cellphone within the morning. If you didn’t flip it in, you’d be in large hassle. If somebody had two telephones, we wouldn’t know… I wouldn’t danger it for a cellphone.

— Park Tae Gyu, tenth grade homeroom trainer

L [name redacted], eleventh and twelfth grade classmate, additionally refuted the reference of pressured information hotspot utilization.

If you get caught utilizing your cellphone throughout class, you’ll have it confiscated for per week. How can you utilize a hotspot when it’s a must to flip it in each morning? Only the informant and Nam Joo Hyuk didn’t flip of their cell telephones? It was an enormous downside in case you obtained caught.

— L [name redacted], eleventh and twelfth grade classmate

Claim #5 – Throwing mechanical pencil lead and reducing in line

Dispatch wished to try the claims made earlier than reviewing the final declare. They famous that the primary informant modified their story, initially claiming to have been bullied for six years earlier than altering it to 3 years. One of their claims was that Nam Joo Hyuk would throw mechanical pencil lead at them from behind, however then modified their assertion to say that the mechanical pencil lead was thrown by a unique group of bullies.

The final declare Dispatch cross-checked is that Nam Joo Hyuk would minimize in line for lunch, which was once more denied.

Since it’s a boy’s class, they often would combat to be the primary ones to eat. Lunch time within the boy’s class is sort of a battlefield. It was at all times taking place in my class too.

— Park [name redacted], alumnus

There wasn’t a cafeteria on the time. We would eat within the classroom. If you’re the first to line up, you’re the primary to eat. Most of the boys competed to have the ability to eat the quickest. I didn’t assume this may represent as faculty bullying…

— S1 [name redacted], twelfth grade classmate

Cutting in line for college lunch? That’s obscure. It was vital to eat rapidly within the boy’s class. For instance, it was much more vital when there was a category competitors later. But it wasn’t an environment the place college students can be kicked out of the road.

— S2 [name redacted], twelfth grade classmate

Dispatch famous that if the informant was harm by what occurred at lunch, it’s proper for them to obtain an apology. But the issue is that no person is aware of who the informant is. As the primary media outlet is remaining silent concerning the informant’s id, Dispatch believes the 2 sides are going to have their first assembly with the police quickly.

Closing Statements

Dispatch ended up assembly with 18 Suil High School alumni and two homeroom academics. All 20 people agree that the alleged claims made by the informants by no means occurred. However, you will need to word that these are counter-testimonies and can’t be accepted as laborious proof.

The closing statements had been made by Nam Joo Hyuk’s tenth and twelfth grade homeroom academics. His eleventh grade homeroom trainer is now retired and couldn’t be contacted.

I’ll put my delight as a trainer on the road. Back then, it was a time of corporal punishment and even the feminine academics had a rod used for punishment. Mothers would even create their very own rods for punishment and provides them to the academics below the guise of hitting college students to show them into individuals. When I used to be educating then, there was no such factor as faculty violence.

Please embrace these phrases within the article.

I noticed a remark that this simply doesn’t really feel proper for some motive. I felt the identical manner. Nam Joo Hyuk was a optimistic and enterprising baby. He had a way of justice. I preferred that, however there have been additionally instances I did need to scold him. But there weren’t any children who didn’t like Nam Joo Hyuk. He is just not a bully. Feel free to incorporate my testimony. That is how assured I’m.

— Park Tae Gyu, tenth grade homeroom trainer

Nam Joo Hyuk? I bear in mind him being good, kind-hearted. He didn’t stand out an excessive amount of… he was an energetic scholar within the correct manner. I bear in mind him being one of many cool male college students that I taught. He helped his buddies properly. He wasn’t the perfect at learning however he was a scholar who acquired quite a lot of compliments about his character and persona.

Don’t choose an individual’s life by a one-sided story.

If there was a draw back to him, it was that he was late rather a lot. Each time that occurred, the academics would make him do the squat-walk as punishment, however he by no means felt that it was unfair or disobeyed, and adopted directions properly. What sort of bully does that? I’m indignant on the unfold of maliciously false data. It’s proper to take accountability in case you do one thing fallacious, but it surely’s fallacious to try to bury somebody with false data.
