The Homemade Love Story actor was previously accused of being a school bully when a netizen claiming to be a former school mate posted a story onto an online community. The alleged victim shared that it was during their high school days that the bullying occurred. “It seems like he heard that I would be an easy target. I think that’s why he bullied me.” They continued by sharing,

During our second year of high school, Mr. Kim (Dong Ha’s real name is Kim Hyung Kyu) heated up a knife with a lighter and stabbed me in the back of my arm.

It wasn’t just me who endured this, but other victims as well.

They also went on to share another specific incident that occurred involving the actor.

There was a time when he called me up onto the rooftop of our school and he choked me until I almost passed out. He also took a chair from our classroom and hit me with it.
