Korean Actor Kim Ji Soo is in the news for all the wrong reasons. The star who appeared in River Where The Moon Rises got accused of sexual assault and bullying by a schoolmate. A classmate of Kim Ji Soo from Seorabeol Middle School called him a 'sexual perpetrator' and a 'womaiser'.After the post made by the classmate went viral, Kim Ji Soo has now extended his apology via a social media post.
In a handwritten letter, Kim Ji Soo has extended his apology saying, "I sincerely apologise to the people who suffered because of me. There is no excuse for my past misconduct. They were things that cannot be forgiven." It further read, "As I started acting, I have come this far with undeserved attention from the public while covering up my past. There was always a feeling of guilt about my past in the corner of my heart and the regret that it was too late to turn back always weighed me down with a great anxiety. I always felt crushed because of my dark past."
It was on March 2 that a post was uploaded on an online forum talking about Kim's behaviour in school. The post read, "Kim Ji Soo had a bigger build than the other kids his age at the time. Starting in his second year of middle school in 2007, he roamed the school as a delinquent and performed all sorts of bad deeds." The post also mentioned, "I was bullied by Kim Ji Soo and the delinquents in 2008, my third year of middle school. The word ‘bullying’ is not enough to describe everything. I was a victim of all kinds of school violence like being made an outcast, violence, blackmailing, insults, and abusive language."
