Moonbyul went on to prove these bullies wrong, and she revealed that she and her fellow members once ran into one of the bullies. The members knew about what this bully did, so they just glared at her!

We ran into one of the bullies while I was working. She pretended not to know me. She was living a tough life. And my fellow members knew the story, so they all glared at her. I felt like I could depend on them. I thought, ‘These are my friends.’

2. Kim Sejeong getting revenge on a hater

Sejeong dreamed of becoming a celebrity since she was young, and one of her after-school academy teachers doubted her talents.

She also shared that she transferred to a new school when she was in grade 3, and just a day after she transferred, there was a school election for class president. Somi’s friends told her that they would vote for her if she ran, and Somi entered without even knowing what a class president was! To her surprise, she got the highest number of votes and became the class president. However, because of this, Somi got bullied until she was in grade 6.

Since I was the class president and the outcast, I think I was the closest to my teacher.
