What was supposed to be a very bad joke on April’s Fool, turned into a couple of awful rumors saying that Girls’ Generation‘s Hyoyeon assaulted someone. The story started to live its own life with new rumors being spread so SM Entertainment has finally spoken out.
The whole story began when police reported that on March 30th, Hyoyeon and her friend were goofing off when he got hit in the eye. When Hyoyeon jokingly run away, the friend got angry and called the police to report the assault. However at the police station he stated, “I was hit while we were goofing around and filed a report, but I realized later that she must not have done it on purpose.”
Unfortunately, before the friend’s statement was revealed, rumors started to spread around the internet. One person claimed that, “My friend’s sister’s friend’s dad is a police officer, and yesterday (March 30), Hyoyeon tried to commit suicide because she’s bullied by Girls’ Generation, and when some guy saw what was happening and tried to stop her, she said she was just going to kill herself and hit the guy. They went to the police station, and it was a huge mess!!!”
People who have seen this post started to speculate that SM Entertainment has reached an agreement with the man to prevent the issue from spreading around.
To stop these rumors, SM Entertainment released an official statement, saying that the agency will take legal action against anyone who posts or spreads false rumors about Hyoyeon. They also added, “We’re requesting that anyone who has posted this rumor on their personal SNS sites, blogs, or other websites delete the post.”
