Singer HyunA, who has recently been caught up in bullying accusations, left a personal message on her Instagram, denying the rumors.

It’s been over ten years, now 14 years, since I debuted and received an overwhelming amount of love. Being a person who lacks, every time I receive interest in the wrong way, even though I get mad, I try to think of it this way. This is the job I chose in order to fulfill my dreams so I should just laugh it off because this too, in a way, is showing interest. Sometimes I just try to understand them too. I know that they could be doing this because they just dislike me, but I don’t want my fans that support and watch me on TV, to get used to getting hurt and healing from these things like I do.

HyunA then revealed her story of her childhood and denied the rumors that were written in the post.

Now at 30 years old, although hard, I will share something with you all. I debuted at the young age of 15 and received a lot of love and was grateful for it. I learned to share and grow from this gratitude. Going a bit further, although there are more stories I could tell you, in case you all wanted to hear, I started as a supporting role child actor at eight years old. At 12 years old and in the fifth grade, I started my trainee days in order to fulfill my dream of becoming a singer. Looking back on my school days, I was always a bit sad. I always had to take the bus to the agency right after school so that was my only memory of my school years. At that young age, I always felt that I was robbed of my childhood because that was my only memory. So what I am trying to say is that I have never slapped anyone’s face or slapped anyone ever. I hope that the person who wrote that post will have many happy things happen for them.
