Stray Kids’ member Hyunjin will take a pause from his career as he takes an indefinite leave when he got himself entangled with a bullying scandal recently.
In a statement released by JYP, the K-Pop star will “take the time to self-reflect,” thus the hiatus.
“He sincerely regrets and is self-reflecting on the fact that he hurt various people in middle school,” it added.
The spate of bullying accusations came last week when an anonymous poster revealed that the 20-year old singer verbally abused people during middle school.
Hyunjin immediately apologized to the accuser, teachers, and fellow students in person.
