*Trigger Warning: This article includes descriptions of bullying.

On February 26th, JYP Entertainment released an official statement regarding the school violence accusations towards Stray Kids member Hyunjin.

In their official statement, the company shared that they made a thorough investigation about the accusations and listened to various accounts that are involved including Hyunjin, the alleged victim, teachers and others surrounding people.

Furthermore, the company revealed that due to misunderstanding and different recollection of the incident among involved parties, it was difficult to clearly confirm facts. Despite this, the company apologized on behalf of their artists as well expressed their gratitude to the involved for accepting the apology as well as for those who supported Hyunjin.

JYP Entertainment also shared that Hyunjin is currently self-reflecting on his past actions and urged everyone to refrain from spreading false rumors.

Here's the full official statement of JYP Entertainment regarding Stray Kids Hyunjin's alleged bullying issue:

"Hello, this is JYPE.

First of all, we apologize for causing discomfort to many with negative news regarding our artist Stray Kids' Hyunjin.

As it is a matter to be cautious about, we ask for your understanding as it took some time to release a statement based on the exact facts after investigating through various routes.

We listened to the situation of that time from the fellow students who attended the same school as the member, teachers, and surrounding people, and with the permission of those who wrote the posts, we directly met up with them and listened to their opinions.

Combining the information from various people, their memories of that time are completely different from each other, so there was some difficulty in clearly confirming any of the facts.

However, there are people who were hurt by Hyunjin's immature and improper actions in the past. Hyunjin deeply regrets and reflects on himself regarding this, so he met up directly with those who wrote the posts and sincerely apologized.

For resolving misunderstandings with Hyunjin, for accepting his sincere apology, and for showing support for his future, we once again express sincere gratitude.

If there are any others who were unable to be reached but have been hurt by Hyunjin's actions in the past, we express apologies.

Hyunjin has resolved to live properly while always self-reflecting from now on, and we will also pay extra effort for our artist to go down the correct path.

Lastly, we ask that everyone refrain from spreading false rumors and speculative reports, and we will take more careful measures regarding the trainee and artist selection process that we weren't alert about before.

Thank you."
