It was reported by Korean news outlet, Sports Kyunghyang, that someone who claims to be a former employee of DSP Media took to social media to call out former APRIL member Lee Hyunjoo. Previously, Lee Hyunjoo had accused the APRIL members (except new members Chaekyung and Rachel) of bullying her throughout the years she trained and debuted with the group.
The alleged former employee accused Hyunjoo of lying with, “I am writing the truth because the world has believed your ridiculous lies, and it seems that you are deluded into thinking that the world belongs to you.” They explained that after Hyunjoo allegedly underwent plastic surgery, the group APRIL was created. However, they alleged that Hyunjoo made it obvious that she did not want to be a part of a girl group and went around with her boyfriend instead.
The alleged former employee continued that after Hyunjoo announced that she would be committing suicide, she instead was just hanging with her boyfriend. They claim that Hyunjoo was not ostracized, rather, Hyunjoo herself did not want to be a part of the group.
If the leader Somin asked you to practice, you would throw a water bottle. But the company tried to move forward with you who was a ticking time bomb, and ended up making Somin leave the group.

The alleged former employee also criticized Hyunjoo for reacting negatively to the acting jobs she was given, claiming that Hyunjoo had wanted to reject things such as web dramas. They ended off the post by claiming they would reveal more of the truth if Hyunjoo were to continue spreading falsehoods.
Neither Hyunjoo nor DSP Media has officially responded to this alleged former employee’s post.
