As actor Nam Joo-hyuk is embroiled in allegations of school violence, the positive stories about him posted by his alumni in the past are being re-examined.
In February last year, an article titled “I’m writing about Nam Joo-hyuk in this situation” was posted on Nate pann.
The writer said, “I was born in 1993 and I am 29 years old. Nam Joo-hyuk was born in early 1994. In about 2006, he entered and graduated from Gyeongnam Middle School in Busan. Our school had a basketball club and a baseball club.”
“I don’t know what grade was it, but I was once a classmate with Nam Joo-hyuk. Students in athletic clubs would take classes until the fourth period and go to practice, but most of them would sleep,” he said. “I remember Nam Joo-hyuk being pure, nice, and bright. He was bad at studying, thou,” the writer explained.
“When I ask my middle school classmates if they know that Nam Joo-hyuk was at our school, no one knows. He didn’t take many classes because he was in the basketball club. After nearly 10 years, I saw a celebrity named Nam Joo-hyuk on the news and thought it was simply someone with the same name. But when I searched for him online, it was the same guy I know.”
Lastly, the account said, “I want to write a letter to Joo-hyuk. You don’t remember me, but I remember you. I remember you as Nam Joo-hyuk, who was really pure, nice, and caring for me,” he wrote. “He must be busy with his activities, so I hope he can take care of his body and show good works in the future.”
At the moment, Nam Joo-hyuk is embroiled in allegations of school violence. However, Nam Joo-hyuk’s side countered, “It is groundless.”
In this situation, Nam Joo-hyuk’s classmate’s positive story uploaded last year is being re-examined. At present, this article still remains undeleted.
