A-JAX, a former boy band from DSP Media, has spoken up about the recent controversy surrounding DSP Media's K-pop girl group April. Over the weekend, allegations of bullying and violence within the group have risen after a post was made claiming to be the brother of former member Lee Hyunjoo went viral.

In the post made by the said brother of Lee Hyunjoo, he spoke about the true reason why his sister, a former member of APRIL, left the group.

In 2016, Lee Hyunjoo suddenly announced that she was leaving APRIL after only a year of being part of the group. The reason cited by the singer and the company was due to Hyunjoo wanting to pursue a career in acting.

According to the article written by the brother of Hyunjoo, this was just a ruse to cover up the truth about Hyunjoo being bullied by fellow members of the group.

Yoonyoung of the now-disbanded DSP Media boy group A-JAX took to Instagram to air out his two cents on the situation.
He posted on his story how upset he was. He writes that he will only speak facts regarding the bullying allegations. According to Yoonyoung, Hyunjoo "ghosted" the group.

"Hyunjoo-yah, I'm sorry but let's say what has to be said. Because of you, our kids were so pitiful. As I was in DSP Media, I watched the process of APRIL being formed. (You) suddenly went uncontactable and skipped out on practice, and it was common for you to be unable to go to schedules due to emergencies," an excerpt from Yoonyoung's Instagram post.

Fellow A-JAX member, Seungjin also spoke about the events surrounding APRIL. "I hedge a guess on this with the belief that Hyunjoo is a kid with consideration towards everyone so I believe she would have made this effort," he writes on a now-deleted post on his Instagram.

Currently, no active members of APRIL have spoken about the issue.
